Though I’ve been busy this past week, I did find some time to squeeze in some crafts. I’m really getting into my crocheting, and having some fun making new things. I made a purple yarn bag for my sister, and need to start one for my mom. But before I started her’s, I needed to make something else real quick. I’m not much of a coupon person, but I do like my craft coupons. I had started collecting coupons from about 3 different stores and needed a small coupon holder for my purse. At first the thought went through my mind, “Oh, I need to go buy me something.” Then I thought, wait, I’ll just search for a pattern online and make one. 😀 I found one and it whipped up pretty quick. There are a couple of things I’ll do different next time, but for my first one, I liked it.

I guess I tend to crochet too tight, and the corners of my projects curl. This one was no exception, which has really bummed me out. I did find a new technique that might help, well new to me. I know everyone says use a bigger hook, but that hasn’t helped me in the past. I just read about using a bigger hook for the chain and then using the right size hook for the rest of the pattern. I’m definitely going to try it on my next project. Plus, I need to do something different with the button hole, or maybe choose another way to close it. But still, I like how this first try turned out.

Since I’ve been working on so many crocheting projects I realized I really need to get my craft cabinet more organized, well at least all my yarn anyway. So the other night I pulled out all my yarn, rearranged the shelves a bit, and put the yarn back in much neater. At least now I know what kind and color of yarn I have. The cabinet could still use some more organizing, but for now it works. I’m glad I finally got it done.

  1. I’ve found that using a bigger hook for your chain row and then switching to the size hook for the pattern definitely helps! I don’t do it all the time these days (maybe I’m past my tight chaining ways….) but I hope that it helps you!
