Finished: Daphne Doll

Say hello to Daphne! 

She is my newest creation that I have been working on all week. 

She is crocheted out of 100% cotton and was such a joy to design! 

I am currently working on some friends for her. Is it strange for a 20-something to have a doll?

 Pattern is currently in the works!

Hope all of my US friends have a great holiday weekend and all my international peeps have a wonderful 1st weekend of September!

ETA: Pattern is now available on Etsy or Ravelry.

Thrifty Yarn Storage

  The other week I found a brown display rack at the local thrift store. Bought it for $5, spray painted it aqua, and voila, a cute yarn rack!

Hooky Update

A lot of crocheting has been happening at Hopscotch Lane the past week and I have to selfishly say that it is all for me!

First I started a new blanket! This is probably the biggest thing I have crocheted to date, but it is absolutely flying off the hook. You can find the pattern here. It is in Swedish, but with a little basic knowledge of crochet and a lot of help from google translate it is manageable. This pattern is ingenious and sucks you right in from the get go. I cannot wait to see what stitch and color is going to be next. The picture shown is only two days of work on it. I cannot wait for it to be done so I can snuggle under it when it's cold and snowy

 Next is a happy amigurumi bunny! 

Finally, I have been working on a super secret Christmas project. Do you wanna see a sneak peak? Do ya?

The whole project will be revealed in September, it will include lots of pictures, new free patterns, and Christmas fun! Stay tuned!

Matching Crochet Blanket and Owl Pillow

I have been busily crocheting up a storm here at Hopscotch Lane. We have been having an unseasonably cool August so far. Yay!

Here is my newest set of crocheted goodness in my all time favorite colors.

 A simple crochet granny square blanket with a fun colorful border.

And a fun owl pillow. This is a new design and I really love it. I have many color combinations in mind that I cannot wait to try. Possibly one in Halloween colors???

I have a little confession to make. I may have put up my Halloween/Autumn Lemax village last week. I got a huge order from my favorite online store and could not wait more than 2 days to take everything out of the box and put it all up. I am anxiously waiting until at least after Labor Day to show it off :)
