alternating V shell afghan. I like it! I learned to crochet from my mother and my 5th grade teacher Mrs. Jurgens. I tend to do more crocheting in the fall and winter since I can do it huddled under a blanket. This has also been a good project to work on while being in the first trimester morning (and evening!) sickness blues.
I love crocheted beanie hats and after seeing some at a craft festival last year I decided it was time I learned how to make them. The black hat has a detachable flower so that I can change it depending on what color I want to wear. The green and blue one is warmer though and is my personal favorite.
I featured my Mario/Boo pillow as my first entry on this blog with a tutorial which you can find here. I made this for my husband for Christmas last year. This project took several hours/days to complete, but was tons of fun to make!
