It should be a square rag, but somewhere in the middle I thought "This will never be a square, but let's see where it goes!".
Well, it's a triangle... and I don't know why???
And the worst is, the video claimed it was for #newbies and I somehow feel bad, now.
How to do #amigurumi if this is happening? 😅
Did a Granny Square crochet pattern for a sun flower. I saw some jackets made with these a while ago and loved the look. Also some bags with them. So I did a first try. Really love this color combo #crochet #grannysquare
Pretty flowers to make you feel happy on a beautiful sunny day. There is joy to be had in little things and beautiful colours. Let creation spark your creativity… #mothyandthesquid #knitting #crochet #yarn
I made a mushroom while waiting on my car to get its oil changed. I gave it to the service supervisor. She's a very nice, friendly lady and the reason I keep coming back to the dealership for maintenance.

If I am mathing correctly, this is just under half a hat. #crochet #WorkInProgress @crochet
A small teaser... I've started to #crochet again.
Thanks to everyone motivating me :ablobcool:
I’ve completed the yoked sweater, my first ever of that type or with fingering yarn or with cables. The yarn is Drops Baby Merino in Amethyst and the pattern is the Copenhagen cardigan by Lille Bjorn. Intentionally made in a bolero length with 3/4 sleeves. Still needs washing and blocking #crochet.
Using a chart from a vintage pattern, using vintage cotton #12, 1.5mm hook for a tablecloth.
Almost halfway through the top, will see how much cotton I have left for a border to drape over the table edge before choosing the design for it.
Aiming to have it completed by August Civic holiday.
We have a spare skein of the June Yan Tan Tourer Yarn Club available - Bluebells At Quarry Bank. Only one in stock and completely unique.

So i havent shared my process of my very first crochet project on here, but i did it. I finished it. I made this poncho all myself and i love it so so so much. Its not too warm as long as the weather is 20c and below. Now i wanna make another one. Or a shawl. Idk. Im just so proud of myself for not giving up on this. #crochet #creativeToots
Is there such a thing as a blue tulip? It seems they come in almost every other colour but blue. I suppose it depends on what exactly you consider blue, and maybe on whether you choose to believe… 🦄
Sometimes #crochet feels a bit like painting and sculpting at the same time

@summeremacs Loved some of them! Did you know crochet can only be made by hand? So most of these pieces are either not really #crochet, or someone it’s getting exploited. Crochet is so fun an easy though, I hope more people give it a go and create their own pieces.

Rich wines and chestnut colours, this indulgent mix represents all your most precious treasures and delicious secrets…
I hope you enjoy the kitsch photoshop, it seemed somehow appropriate for a fun colourway like this!

“Red Oak” merino alpaca fingering yarn. There are just two skeins, which came back from @sealymacwheely as I did another restock on Thursday. She’s now had thirty new colourways in the last week or so, making today a great day to visit her shop if you’d like to see my yarn in person along with much much more as it’s a fabulous shop for fibre loving hand crafters of all kinds.
Funnily, and I don't know if it has to do with me being a leftie, for a long time I did my crochet inside out. And I actually like the look because it has less visible rows. But it creates issues with multi-colored pieces and has less nice endings. So now I'm trying this new technique, and it works quite nicely. #crochet #crocheting

Finished up a jacket with cowl recently and I am so in love with the design 😍
This is the pattern I used: https://www.etsy.com/de/listing/93781585/crochet-pattern-ladies-shrug-cardigan
It's that perfect evening hour with a full tummy, a calm mind, and a comfy chair in which to do a few rows of #crochet while watching reruns of 'Chopped!' Sounds like a great time to do THREE GOOD THINGS™️, right?!
🐟 Y'all know how I feel about dinner being FISH TACOOOOOOOOS!
🎣 The Domestic Partner has made it safely to #Cuttyhunk where hopefully #stripers are to be found in profusion.

Oh! Pride flag planter cozy crochet pattern! Free!
“Summer Forest”, A cool walk in the forest on a warm summer’s day. Tall trees interspersed with shafts of bright sunlight. A pretty mix of greens with brown and purple speckles reminiscent of bark and undergrowth.
Ok creative types - I need an idea please. I want to crochet a cover for this object that we use as a door stop. What creature or object can I turn it into? We're retired gardener types living in a renovated country church and irony, sarcasm and dark humour are greatly appreciated.

“Magpie”, inspired by one of the species of wild birds that frequents our garden. It’s a beautiful bright warm bank holiday Monday here and I’ve already been out to top up the bird food and tadpole pellets, and refresh the bird bath.
Woohoo! The pattern for the Evil Eye Uterus has gone through testing and final edits. I've just published my first written/detailed pattern for purchase! Exciting yet nerve racking.

#crochet is not who you are, though. It's what you do. And if the wee nephew has to wait until another occasion for his "dino", that's okay too!
I "need" another #knitting (or #crochet) project. Yes, I really do.
Even with at least two ongoing ones (we're ignoring anything "old" here).
Reason: meeting of knit group in (looks at watch) two hours. And both my current projects are at a state where working on them requires way more attention than I'm able to pay when simultaneously chatting with (looks at list of attending people) 15+ other knitters and crocheters.
Good thing I've an extensive stash of sock yarn. @knitting @fiberarts
wore the sweater i made to work today #crochet
Feeling the sweater curse but it’s not me knitting a sweater for my date, it’s me attempting to single #crochet a bi flag and wondering if maybe I’m actually straight.
I have two skeins of the blue and pink and a skein of the purple and this first skein doesn’t seem like it’s getting any smaller!!
To be honest I want to make curtains. Lace things.
(I am not a girl.) In prior centuries, girls would work on their trousseaus and hope chests that they would bring with them to their married life.
My trousseau is meant for me.
There isn't much (good) info online about what was in the trousseau EXACTLY. Like a detailed list.
I have had an urge to knit/crochet curtains.
Here is one, but they're plain.

Observations on Crafting
No matter how many peskies (ends) you sew or weave into your work one more will appear once you have put your needle away
Heck, I'm about to donate some used and new tatting shuttles and knitting/crochet stuff to an indigenous charity I like.
But the way i think of it, it's great for giving to someone who wants to learn.
I kept a cheap Boye hook in my wallet in case I need to test out yarn, or in case someone wants to learn crochet.
Keep the hook!
Why doesn't it occur to people to share in their community? If you teach someone else, they might be able to teach you back.
Amazon is crazy with some of these shop listings.
Companies offering cheap knitting, crochet and needlework supplies. For one, they're cheap and numerous because they often break. (See also, plastic stitch markers).
Two, it's cheap to make a knockoff of an official product and use cheaper materials. (See Clover tatting shuttles. Tons of knockoffs. But the cheap ones are what tatting beginners can often afford, so I recommend those.)
i'm done with this pouch! very happy with the final product :blobhaj_tiny_heart:

i have no desire to finish my alien plush toy so i'm now crocheting a small pouch (again).
also thinking about having my next big crochet project be a simple cardigan for my mom? it's something that's been on my to-do list for at least a year now so i might as well get on it.
Halfway through #AmiguruMay and it's time for something brand new!
Mushrooms are quite addictive to make and I have the urge to add eyes to the next batch
So I got cold and started on a blanket.
#crochet #grannysquare #sunburst
So I did a talk on Infosec and knitting at #pancakescon this year and somehow this has led to Infosec and knitting/crochet becoming forever entwined in my day job.
If you see me at a con this year in person (or with video on at virtual) you shall discover this to be true 😂
Because I forgot:
Hi, I'm Jen. I live in #Houston, TX (don't judge me, we're not all like *that*, and moving is hard, y'all).

I gladly accept corrections.
I #crochet, am pretty darn good at #sewing, and dabble in #knitting.
