About Me

My Photo
I am 42. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first. We have lived in Florida for 3 years (transplanted from WI) and we finally love it. I graduated with my AA in Business Foundations from UoPhoenix in February 2014! Yay, me!

Sampler Scarf




This is a scarf pattern to help you work on different stitches. This is perfect for the beginner looking to expand their "stitch repertoire". I created this pattern to teach to an advanced beginners class. I used Red Hearts "Earth & Sky" yarn, but any color would be great.
Have Fun!

I've been using this yarn for a variety of things! Love breaking it up with chocolate. REALLY wish I could find a blue that matches the blue in this mix.

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the opportunity to learn more than just a basic stitch! I love your patterns and enjoy trying to expand my limited skills.

How can I learn to read a pattern like this? I've taught myself to knit and crochet, but have difficulty reading all the shorthand!

Hi Lynne,
I'm going to be doing some posts on crochet terminology and learning how to crochet. But, until I get those done, this might help you. Just copy and paste the link into your browsers address bar.

Just discovered your blog. Thanks for great ideas. I crochet blankets for charity (orphanages in 3rd world countries) and am looking for a very simple vest, pullover, skirt/pant crochet patterns to make matching clothes for teddy bears that we add to our blankets. Do you have any simple designs? Teddies vary in size (from beanies to about 12 inches). cgsk@hotmail.ca if you have any ideas. Thanks. Claire
