So finally get to post again. I have been really busy trying to get caught up sonce my surgery. My not napping toddler has been testing me too… hence the title. I tested this gorgeous slouch, the Hermosa Slouch and the Hermosa Cowl and Scarf from Laura Maes Crochet. I loved how the contrasting colors really make the pattern pop. Even Stormy Mo approved.

Due to medical issues I’ve been laid up for a couple of weeks. So I’ve been binge watching Orphan Black, Black List and anime. I don’t like sitting still though… so I’ve been working on crochet, reading and even drawing, since I can’t get to my computer just yet.
So here is one of the drawings… a full color gnome. A work in progress, pastel worked on Canson Mi Tientes white. Still not sure if it should just be the gnome or if it needs the ledge and/or background, what do you think?

My 2 year old has been wanting a hat or anything I’m making is supposed to be for her. So I took the opportunity to test the Fan Beanie for Crafty Ridge. It works up quickly and looks stunning in rich colors. Its also on sale for a limited time. Not to mention my little girl is very happy. I think she’s looks pretty darned cute too. What color would you make one in and who for?

I tested this cozy warm hat for Crafty Ridge, Sweater Slouch Beanie. Its like a sweater for your head. I also tested the pattern for the matching Sweater Fingerless Gloves. Of course my child loves them.

I recently did a test for Sweet Potato Crochet Creations for the Battle of the Stitches. It involved the paintbrush stitch and the theme wrapped in warmth. Its a beautiful stitch, but it’s a yarn eater. I did some frogging before I figured out the stitch itself. After that it went together beautifully. This was my first ever sweater, cardi, etc. I was a bit nervous. What do you think? I think my next one will be done in a solid color like plum.
