Projects for Rainy Day Crochet
I have been a crochet fiend since the chaos of Christmas passed. It seems like all of my grandkids want something from me. As a Nana, I just want them to have what they want, if it is in my power to give it to them. At the moment I have several works in progress. I did just finish a baby blanket for a new baby at church. My boys chose the colors and the pattern. The pattern is the Triangles & Stripes Baby Blanket from 5 Little Monsters. This is an easy pattern and works up quickly too. The family loved it, and it will come in handy on cold nights! Unfortunately, I did not get pictures of it before I gave it to them.
Charlie the Kitten by Kate E. Hancock
At the moment I have two works-in-progress. I’ve almost finished Charlie the Kitten by Kate E. Hancock; from the Zoomigurumi 4 book. I bought the book, (and all the others in the series) at AmigurumiPatterns.net (scroll down, it’s there!). If you don’t want the book, you can also find the pattern on Ravelry.com, on Kate’s designer page. If you crochet, and are not subscribed to Ravelry, you need to be! It’s free to sign up, and I find patterns for anything I want to crochet there. I’ve purchased “paid” patterns, but I use a LOT of free patterns from Ravelry too.
Chip & Dale by Megan Kreiner
I’m also working on Chip & Dale for my grandson. Bless his heart, as soon as I finish something he’s requested, he has something else lined up to request! I have Chip on the hook now, but Dale will follow. I got these patterns from the book included in the Disney Classic Crochet kit. The patterns are from Megan Kreiner. I get her patterns and books through her website, and she is also on Ravelry. You can find the Disney Classic Crochet kit, and many others on Amazon.com. I love these kits and I’ve worked up patterns from several of them. The patterns are well written, and the kits come with everything you need to make two of the characters in the books. I like these kits because the books have several character patterns in them, making the kits well worth the money!
Since the alarm woke me up at 5 a.m., I’ve been listening to rain, off and on. We also had tornado warnings all morning. There’s supposed to be an even higher chance of rain tomorrow, so my hook will be busy! Maybe I’ll even finish up Chip & Dale for my grandson!
What project would you like to see come from my hook next?
