Craft Organizing, Crafting Weekends

With the weekend snowstorm, we've started the winter season.  We got slammed with just under a foot of snow.  I've heard grumblings and complaints but really it will probably all be gone by mid-week.  We were lucky it came on a weekend so for the most part we could curl up inside and not have to go anywhere.

For me, I did a lot of crocheting.  I cleaned and organized some of my craft stuff but mostly I worked on projects.  I can't show many of them because they're presents.  I do have one, which turned out better than I expected.  I've had the supplies to make this for a while but thought it would be tough with attaching it to the hardware and working it to fit but I was wrong.  It was actually a breeze.  It's made with Lion Brand Bon Bon yarn and was simply a matter of sewing it to the closure.  I might have to make more of these.  I might even try to make my own pattern.

I've got a four day weekend coming up and I'm looking forward to spending it crocheting.  I have a large list of small projects I want to work on.  I'll post pictures when I'm done.  However, after this weekend, I have to focus on finishing up the gifts I need to make.  Those pictures won't go on here until after I've handed them out.

Once the presents are done, I've got two larger projects I'm working on that I'd like to complete and get out of my craft basket.  This is of course a prelude to me picking new projects to put in my crochet basket.  I reach a point where I look at a project and say - all right I just want this one done.

I sorted through several baskets of yarn and as I did, I wanted to set aside a number of things and just pull out certain yarn and work with is.  This is my current work in progress.  I came across the yarn and couldn't resist starting a blanket for my daughter.  I made up a pattern which took a bit of trial and error but now I've started, I'm loving it.  I want to go buy up a bunch of this yarn to make a bunch of projects with it.  It works up quickly and is warm and soft.  I'll have to see how things go and hopefully will be able to work with more of this yarn.  I can see in my head all sorts of options and projects.  I love it when a product inspires me.
