Semi-wordless Wednesday:Compulsive Crochet

It all started eight days ago when I picked up the Crochet Today special issue at ACMoore.

I finished the Snowfall Cowl (page 15) within three hours... unfortunately those were the hours I was supposed to be sleeping.

I'm not sure I understand the cowl. Do you? I mean, it feels like the sweater part is missing....







Then I decided to try the Colorful Cushion on pg. 66. I plan to use the BeaUtiful monogram I made last year (for no apparent reason) on the back.





This weekend I realized I wouldn't be complete until the Raspberry Beret (pg. 23) was brought to life (plus my Friday night movie buddy was at Girls Scout camp.

(Not to brag or anything, but I had two WHOLE evenings to myself this weekend.

Chick flicks, crochet and Chardonnay...could it get much better? If you ever have the opportunity, I highly recommend it.)






Only, I wasn't too keen on how the beret looked on me.





It was sort of a cross between those hats you see people wear in hospitals and a deflated mushroom.





But it looked great on a certain 10 year old, who is already lobbying for me to give the beret to her...

How could I say no?

I think the main advantage of the cowl is that you can produce a cute finished product in a reasonable time without having to buy tons of yarn. Nice work on all projects!!

OK Kellie...you must fly to Brussels and spend a week here teaching me your crocheting and knitting skills. I'm not kidding. If you bring your little 10 year old darling, then all four of us gals could have a craft marathon! I love all the projects and the cowl is adorable. Take care! - Sara

1. You look like the models on the front of the knitting books.

2. How are we even friends? I'm still working on the same project I started SIX weeks ago.
