After a long day (Pi went with me to work...nuff said), I came home to a puffy!
It was the loot I ordered from Bezzie's etsy store. I love these yarn cutters! Bezzie normally sells them with knitting needles sticking out of them, but since I am of the hooking variety she cutom made these with just the ball of yarn.
I used to try and carry safety scissors with me, but I lose them alot. These will clip onto my keychain so the chance of losing them is pretty small. If I do lose the, let's hope the person who breaks into my apartment with my keys returns the cutter.
I also got those cool crochet magnets from Bezzie too. My fridge was the only part of my apartment not infected with crochet mania...that's changed, muhahaha!
Recently, it was Teacher's Appreciation Day at Pi's school. With the majority of my mind somewhere over the rainbow, I forgot until the night before. Pi's teacher is a nun, so I was at a loss of what to make QUICK!
I remember that she's an avid reader and decided to make a book cover, but I didn't like any of the patterns I found.
I winged this one with a stitch from the Crochet Stitch Bible and used the first two rows of Cocoa Cream's American Folk Art Heart Motif. This heart motif is easy and really pretty when finished.
I didn't write out a pattern for the book cover because, in all honesty, I think it can be done better. Next time, I'll use a lighter yarn and a smaller hook. This cover was a bit on the bulky side, but worked well enough.
