Evenings with Etsy # 5 – Crochet Lacy Overskirt

July 29, 2015By 0 Comments

Hi all! Kristina here! I wanted to present the perfect matching outfit for summer! 

First up is our pattern for an over-skirt done in a lacy lattice stitch. This is a nice fashion accessory for anyone who wears skirts. The pattern is for ankle length snug fitting skirt, but with slight adjustments this over-skirt can fit any skirt from mini to floor length and can be loosened to fit a fuller skirt.

Black and White Rectangle Granny

July 27, 2015By 2 Comments

Hey All!
Millie here with another pattern review. Well, it’s not really a review of a pattern but a review of a way to start a rectangle granny square. A few years ago a coworker asked for a dozen different afghans to give out to her nieces at Christmas. She wanted each afghan a different color and style to match her nieces. I loaned her my 101 Granny Squares pattern book and she picked out the squares and colors she wanted and I got to work. Took awhile but I finally finished the afghans (really lapghans as they were 3×4) and I thought thank goodness that’s over! Then I received a text message – Do you still crochet? The same coworker and she needed 2 more! One in purple, one in black and white. I decided to do one as a rectangle but what’s the best way to start one for an afghan?

Let’s go fishing!

July 22, 2015By 0 Comments

Around here something we like to do is to go fishing!! Bob (grandson) is very active so finding something to keep him still a few minutes is a challenge. Fishing takes a bit of concentration, hand/eye coordination and luck! Just the thing to keep him occupied for a bit!
