Crochet Stitch Tutorial: Crossed Trebles

Arm Knitting!

NO it is not a myth! You can knit with just about anything! a few months ago my friend and I were on a double date and our boyfriends looked on in horror and we tried to knit our noodles! Her knitting skills are far more advanced that my own and she managed 3 rows of 4 stitches on one long ramen noodle!
 My video comming out on youtube today Sunday the 15 th will show you have to arm knit

I am so honored Mikey choose my pattern out of the 1,000's that are available on the redheart.com website! I remember the first time Mikey Instant messaged me I jumped up and down and said I am chatting with THE Mikey!!! Yes the "the" was necessary  at the time I was just a fan and I was happy when I got 5 view on my small blog a day! I had asked him what he thought about my First AFC video and he gave me soo much good advice! fast forward 1.5 years ish and now he filmed one of my designs :)

Use your skills to improve or fix outfits

Happy Monday everyone! I hope evwryone who can is enjoying this Holiday! Today I am wearing a maxi dress I bought a few years ago. I was upset when the beaded strap broke however I was not ready to part with it or fork over the cash to get a new one. My crochet minded brain said..... crochet a new strap and thats exactly what I did with some black worsted weight yarn and a h hook. This is made of ch and hdc around the ring!Have you fixed or improved an outfit with crochet? Comment below and tell us about it!

DIY Yarn coffee cup inspiration

It's back to school time, both for myself and my oldest son ( he just got into GATE this year and I am so proud!) and in my house this means COFFEE! I was given one of these diy coffee cups and At first I though ooo I could scrapbook something awesome.... But then I though what if I crocheted something?? The cup I have smashed the lace I made with this 2 ply yarn. However I think thread would fit perfectly!!!!


SO here is a project anyone even children can do!!

Supplies
less than one ball of Yarn 3 ply or 2 ply
I used Scarps of Vanna's Glamour left over from this pattern (Oh my CHIQ stars scarf )
customizable coffee cup

Step 1
unscrew the cup

Step 2
Starting at the bottom wrap yarn around the cup.
Try to wrap closely so there are not hug black gaps, try not to over lap too much so it it not thick.
To help it from unraveling when you first start with a 6 inch tail and wrap over it as you go.

Step 3
When you reach the top tuck your tail in and screw the cup back together.
