Holiday Crafting

I seen this posted on pintrest the other day, and I think I may make one of my own, and for my mom. :-) They would make great gifts for your family or friends that love to crochet or knit! Later I may post a tutorial on how to make one, once I figure out how to do it. Though it looks fairly simple to make.

New crochet pattern comming soon!

I am thinking of what to design for my next crochet pattern.  I think I will do a pair of fingerless gloves/wristlets! Those are simple and easy to make, and you can do so much with them! I have a lot of ideas to try out. :-) I just need to make a few first so I can get the gist of how to make them.  I am also in the process of making a pattern for a brimmed beanie hat too! :D  If you have any requests on what you would like to see a pattern form, please feel free to comment! <3  Happy 2nd day of May! <3 It would be Dose De Mayo, LOL (pun intended.)

Another great rehearsal!

Just because I like the flyer THAT much, here it is again! My friend Mark - whom plays the Tuba in the CCWE - is a very talented graphic artist! Anyhow, I just got home from another really great rehearsal with this band! I have a good connection with everybody in it, and we are not just a good band, but a family as well! We support one another when times are tough, and praise one another for good deeds that are accomplished. I do not think I could have found any better band to be a member of, other than this one! I hope that we will continue to grow and be an out standing member of our community!

Brenda's XL Slouchy Hat Crochet Pattern FREE!!!!!!

Brenda’s XL Slouchy Hat
(For people with a big head ;) )

In this pattern I used a 5.00 MM crochet hook, and acrylic worsted weight yarn. – Any red heart brand is fine. And you will need a tapestry needle.
1-      Chain 85.
2-       Connect to first chain to form a circle with a slip stitch. (Make sure it is not twisted before you connect it.)
3-      Chain 2.  – 1 HDC in each stitch. Connect to first stitch with slip stitch.
4-8 – Repeat row 3.
9- Chain 3. 2 dc in same st.** Skip next 2 sts, 3 dc in 3rd hdc. ** Repeat until end, and connect row with slip st.
10-13 – Repeat row 9. Fasten off.
14 – Connect a new color to any space between the 3dc (granny stitch) groups. Repeat row 9. Fasten off.  Connect original color.
15-23 – Repeat row 9.
24-  Chain 2, 1 sc in each st.
25- ch2 . **1 sc in same st as chain. 2 sc together. 1 sc in next 2 sts.  ** Repeat until end.
26-30- Repeat row 25.  Fasten off with about 10 inch to 12inch tail. (will need a very long tail)
Tuck in all the loose ends you have hanging loose, except the very long tail at this time.
Thread needle with the long tail and weave in and out of stitches to close up the top of the hat, and continue to weave in and out until it is completely closed. Be sure to secure your end once the hole is sewn closed.

More hats!!!

I have been busy making hats, as you can see!! I am trying to make very many hats to sell at an up coming craft fair! I hope that I sell at least enough to cover the cost of the table I paid for! I know my partner, Pat is helping out. Usually every craft show we do together we split the fee so that it is not so expensive to do. :-) I am really excited about selling at May Fest though!! :-) And the next one will be Gold Rush Festival, which is Villa Rica's founder's day! I plan to sell there also! :D

I wrote a pattern yay!! I plan to post the directions for it soon, but here is a hat that someone made while testing the pattern for me! :D
So here I am, at the very end playing my clarinet! :-) This is actually a great photo of the wood wind section that my friend Alice took of us during a performance last year. :-) I am very proud to be a member of the Carroll Community Wind Ensemble! :-) Hopefully I will be able to get more pics uploaded soon!  We will be having rehearsal tonight in preparation of our upcoming performance on May 9th at the AMP Theater in Carrollton, GA at 7:30pm! I hope yall will come out and see us!
