Cool weather makes for good crocheting

I have been on such a crochet kick lately. I think it's the weather changing. Crocheting is just cozy and relaxing which is perfect for this weather! I have been working on some scarves that I would like to eventually put in the shop.

Tonight my friend Dianna invited me to her ornament exchange. I'm pretty excited! I made my ornament to give away. I hope the recipient thinks it is as cute as I do! I just love sweet little amigurumi creatures! I used this free pattern for this octopus ornament.



Speaking of ornament exchanges, I know I have given peeks at my ornament for Kimi's ornament swap but here is a good picture of my contribution to the swap! They are crocheted spools of thread! If you would like some of your own I believe she has some extras from everyone who took part in the swap and will be having a giveaway soon on her blog so keep an eye out on that!



Last week I finally got my haircut. I decided to go ahead and get some bangs. I think I really like them! What do you think?

OMGOSH!! That Octopus and spool of thread are so cute!!! I want one!!! the scarves look great too. I really want to learn to crochet, is it hard to learn? I love your bangs! I always want some but I look silly with them, I think my face is just oddly shaped. Love Love

I love the spool ornament!!! Love the bangs, too- they look great on you. I agree with the comment above- I always want to try them out but they would never work with my head. lol

I'm having trouble finishing my crochet projects at the moment because it's starting to get so hot!

that octopus is so cute- I've been crocheting for almost 2 years but have never used a pattern- I get confused reading them =( but I've got to figure out because stuff like this is too freaking cute!
