Infinity Scarf pattern

This is my first pattern to ever be published! Yay! (I think...)
It's pretty simple, so if you know how to chain, single and double crochet, you should be good to go! :)

Items Needed:
Any WW yarn
Size J hook

Ch - Chain
DC - Double crochet
HDC - Half double crochet

  1. Ch 14 for foundation chain
  2. DC in 3rd chain from hook to the end of row, Ch 2, turn
  3. DC through each stitch (inside the stitch, not just the top 2 strands) to the end of the row, Ch 2, turn
  4. Repeat Row #3 until it is as long as you like.
  5. Connect the two end rows with HDC through the parallel stitch on each side. Fasten off, weave in ends.
      

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask me in the comments below! :)

If We're Honest (Francesca Battistelli)



I love this song; it helps to inspire me and it touches a part of my heart that is hidden from view, even from those closest to me.

Bring your brokenness and I'll bring mine,
'Cause love can heal what hurt divides,
And mercy's waiting on the other side,
If we're honest

Currently... (11-20-14)

Currently...
Typing as the dialogue from Thor drifts up the stairs.

Regretting...
That I don't post on here very much. 

Thinking...
About why it's so much easier to post on my personal blog. Because I put in part of myself. (I really ought to do that with this blog as well)

Dreaming...
Of days when I am not so focused on useless nothings

Wishing...
I wasn't so forgetful, so irregular

Contemplating...
On whether to send a friend an epistle that is heartfelt but foolish

Feeling...
Petty and childish, but wanting a friend to talk to

Thinking...
That maybe this is a silly thing to post and I should just delete it. Right now.

Deciding...
That maybe I should send that email to my friend. Maybe it will make me feel better. Maybe not. 

Worrying...
That maybe tonight will be like the last several nights, when I lay awake in bed and think about what friends can I trust in? Who is for real?

Latest Creation (10/21/14)

Hello, lovlies! I realize I'm not really updating this blog as I should, and I need to step it up. I tend to post more on my personal blog, Reflections of the Heart; it just comes easier to me. 
But I have decided that I will either pick up the pace with this blog or close it down. Fortunately for you who enjoy seeing these posts, I have grown rather attached to this little blog and I would absolutely hate to delete it. :)

So here is my latest creation...
 




 A cupcake hat!








This is the first time (to my remembrance) I have attempted to make a cupcake hat, and I'm so glad I tried! My cousin and friend Lydia bought it for her friend's baby. :)
You can see the sprinkles, right?
My grandma used a Cheerio Kid as a model, lol!  XD

Current Projects (10/4/14)

So I posted this post on the Reflections of my Heart blog instead of this one (all accidental, of course). So here it is again!

So recently I've been crocheting a lot more than usual (no, I don't normally make one hat a day). I thought I would post about different products I've made lately, with pictures, of course! :)


Here are some owl sleepy masks I made; both of them sold at the craft sale I went to last Saturday. :)
Which do you like better? The one with its eyes open or the one winking? Or do you think they would be cuter with both eyes shut?


I also made a Nemo hat on request; it was a bit more difficult than I expected. :P


I have got to buy a styrafoam head one of these days. My arm doesn't work very well. :P

As I mentioned earlier, I went to a craft sale with my mom last Saturday. It was pretty exciting, it being my first craft sale to have my own booth. We managed to sell quite a few hats from the 8WC, all the profits from which went to the Master's Home.
It's really crazy how we raised over $130 for the orphanage, don't you think? ;)

Yes, I'm still freaking out about it. XD

My Current Projects

Hello again! Today I'm going to post some of the projects I've been working on. I have been crazy busy, but somehow I always end up crocheting. Even when I don't have any spare time to do it. :P
I have only gotten a few orders lately; not that I mind. I'm a little glad I haven't gotten any more than I have because I might have gone out of mind! XD

An order for a pink owl hat. This one is cuter than the last one. :)


An order for a tiger hat, which I already had made for the 8WC so 100% of that order goes to the orphanage.


I got a big donation of yarn from some good friends of mine. Thanks again, Patience and Mercy Fulton! As you can see, this whole bag is chock-full of baby yarn!

By the way, the bag is bigger than it looks. ;)
