I'm a Jax native but have a huge family in SC that I grew up with. So I have an odd taste of urban & nature. I've been crafting since I was little, using anything I could get my hands on. From my granny's old jewelry & clothes to metal scraps from my dad's shop. I'm using this blog just to keep you up to date on my shop & what I'm working on... & maybe post some other randomness like how-to's or things I'm cooking ;) Hope you enjoy & feel free to check out my shop or other profiles on FB & Twitter!

Circle Afghan


 Right now I'm working on this awesome crochet blanket! I found the pattern on the back of the label on Lion Brand Yarn. But you can click the link & see the pattern for yourself! Also below is the picture with the colors they used. But I love deep & bright colors so I changed it to give it some umph! Purple has always been a favorite color of mine, & over the years I've added greed & orange to the fav list. It's going a little slow because I live in Florida & its getting really hot here. It's hard to keep it on your lap to work on it in this heat! Also sometimes I get on a roll doing double crochets & forget how many times I've gone around, so I have to go back & take some of it out :P

Another cool thing about this pattern online at Lion Brand is that you can select the colors you want & print out the pattern with those colors instead of the demo they used. Pretty nifty in keeping track of what colors you're on & not getting mixed up. Well I'm off to work, I'll post pictures of the finished afghan when I'm done :D
