Hey all! Look at my motifs!!!

Hey guys, so it's been a while since I've blogged. I've been around, just haven't had much to talk about. I have been working hard on learning how to crochet and so far so good! I'm so excited that I can actually take some yarn and a hook and making a stitch or a patch of fabric out of it. My favorite stitch so far is the the double crochet. I don't know if its because I've been doing it so much or what, but there is just something about making the stitch that is so relaxing. I've tried others and they are nice too, just the double seems to go faster for me and I can just make them for hours on end...in fact I did! Take a looksie!

So I took a pause to snap a picture of what I was working on. A ton of double crochet stitches on top of one another. Awesome, right? :-D

A girl likes to watch some "bizarre" stuff while she's crocheting.

And the final outcome was a hat! I gave the hat to my sister and begged her to model it for me. She didn't want to be in the pictures but agreed to it after I said I'd take her face out...of the pictures guys not literally! So she agreed and I did as I promised, face gone. But you can still get the idea of the hat.

Close-up of the hat so you can see the yarn and stitches better. Awesome, right? :-D

And one from the side. I am so proud of my work and for it being a first it didn't come out to bad. :-D

But then I wanted to try something else. Something that would make me feel like I was "really" crocheting. So I went looking around the Crochet Spot and found the blog entries on motifs. I had to try them.


My first motifs!


These are the three, more like 2 as one is just a repeat, I managed to work out. I'd worked on a fourth one but that one was a bit confusing and decided to call it a day on that one and try it again. Now for close-ups!

I noticed she has a few extra on the site since I worked on the last ones so I am going to attempt those this weekend and report back to you on how it went. If you are looking to start crocheting or looking for some nice patterns you should check out the Crochet Spot. Sign up for the newsletter and get a free robot amigurumi pattern. Must find mine again to attempt trying it. :-)

So yeah, that's what I've been up to. Just really working hard on the crochet thing. I want to open my shop my the first day of spring and time is quickly running out for me to get it all ready to go. So I need to hurry because I have got some plans and ideas people! I'm really excited about this year. I've got some hard things I need to go through this year but once I get through them I will be full steam ahead! So stay tuned and stick around, the best is yet to come. :-D Talk to you all soon. Bye for now.

Loves ya,
Mouse

Your sister looks pretty sweet for a black blob. I was so hoping that you had a blog update when I saw your new pics over on flickr, you did not dissapoint!

I love that hat, it looks awesome. And those little motifs are gorgeous. I'm hopeless at crocheting, I'm the knitter type.
Thank you for stopping by my blog!

Hi! Thanks, for stopping by my blog. LOVE, your hat. Myknitting skills are very basic and I'd certainly love to wear a colourful hat like this.
Well done :)
