I Have Skills... Crocheting Skills.

I wanted to show you all what I've been working on lately... I'm obsessed with crocheting. Really. Chris has come home from work to find me crocheting on the couch almost every day this week and he usually says, "So what are you making now ??" He likes the things I've made, he's just surprised at how much I'm creating. It's like I've kicked the crafting into high gear and I'm cranking out a ton of things each week. Is that bad? It makes me happy and I have a lot of time on my hands right now. 

{Side note: The job that I had ended last week (it was a student job and I graduated so I'm no longer a student) so what else am I going to do? I do have my Etsy store (which is the best job ever!) but I will have to find something else that will help pay the bills during the slow times. So (I'm rambling, sorry) I've been filling my time with crocheting. And don't worry, I am looking for another job but it all takes time. In the meantime, expect lots up updates to my shop and many exciting blog posts.}

Let me introduce you to Jack the whale. I made this coffee/soda/hot chocolate cozy for my friend Kayleigh to say thank you for helping me out at the Bijou Market a few weeks ago. I liked him so much that he may find his way into my shop very soon (with the addition of a mouth.. he doesn't have one in this picture).

Chris' younger sister Ally was my model for these pictures and she did a fabulous job! 
This purple headband is one of my favorites. What do you think? 
I got the flower pattern from

I'm in LOVE with these hats. They turned out amazing! I love the colors, I love the way they look, I love the way they fit...they are beautiful and they make me happy. These will definitely be listed in my shop.

And finally, everyone needs a crocheted bow. I've been making these in tons of colors and they are so cute! I'll be adding these to my shop also. 

So what do you think? Any favorites? Let me know in the comments below. Have a great Friday!
