Crocodile Stitch

If you have ever seen the crocodile crochet stitch and wanted to do it, I have found a great tutorial for it.  I looked all over trying to find one.  This is a video from Annie’s Attic.  The best thing about it is there isn’t a lot of chatter, they just instruct you like a pattern would read.  I really liked it.

Check out the Video

I will have to make something with this stitch and post a picture so you can see what it looks like.  It’s pretty neat.

Bow Board

Ever get frustrated that your hair clips are hard to find or cluttering up valuable drawer space?  Here’s a perfect solution!  
A Bow Board!
Description:
This bow board is 11 x 14.  It is wood frame with a fabric cover and satin ribbon.  The back is also covered.

My First Beard Beanie

Hooray!  I finished a beard beanie!  This one is reserved by my mom.  I’m pretty excited about it.  This one is fuzzy with earmuffs:

I also can make them non-fuzzy and without earmuffs.  I based this on a FREE PATTERN by Jen Spears, but varied it a little bit and haven’t put the pom-pom on top.

Brown Baby Cowboy Booties

Yet another Christmas gift…can you tell I was busy?

These are some more of the fun little cowboy baby booties that I made for my nephew for Christmas.  Unfortunately I didn’t finish the ones for my 4-mo-old daughter, but I will.

Again I used this FREE PATTERN but this time I left off the little “heel.”  I absolutely love these:

I have to admit, it was a little challenging for me to keep the rows lined up.  They kept working in a diagonal.  I had to use stitch markers and count a lot to keep it straight.  I’m currently looking at some tutorials to see if I can figure out anything I’m doing wrong.  If I do, I’ll share so I can maybe save someone else the frustration.
