How are you going to change your life force today?


She started her post saying she is no one really just a girl dealing with anxiety and depression.... How many on you reading this post have felt that way? Laura Pavy of the Crochet Case who is a mom, and has a business talked the CWA into helping her yarn bomb a stretch of highway that sees lots of tourists four times a year and locals far more often. Above you can see a photo from a local paper in Australia  showing all the lovely ladies involved in this yarn bomb!



Laura is the one in pink and blue jeans! While I have never met Laura in person ( if you come to the us Laura come say hello!!) I have had the privilege to get to know her some online. For the past few weeks I have seen her take a sketch of tiny triangles to 6 inch crochet triangles to a giant metal frame to finally this amazing piece of art!
See all the photos and read her amazing depth into her project here on her blog

Her description of what this means to her is what touched and inspired me . Go to her blog and it's about a page long and is the last picture. I love how she takes her passion for geeky and math and combines it with her skill and passion of crochet and uses it to inspire people.

"Life force is the culmination of art, mathematics and craft depicting the concept of equality."


In the end of her description she asks


"How are you going to change your life force today?"


Can you combine your passions and skills to do something great? Have you already please share!!!!

E crochet hook

(* HINT this is basically a vertical row or a shell*)
First stitch***
Ch3, hdc 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 2 hdc ( all in the same space)
Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

suggested lengths _
Woman's s/m ~18 shells
l/xl ~20 shells
Mans~ 23 shells

sew the 2 ends together and weave in your tail at least 4 inches worth so it will not come undone.

Sides and top of cross
Ch3 2dc, ch2, dc3 in any ch2 sp. Turn and *sl to ch2, ch3,2dc, ch2,3dc. *Turn and repeat * repeat everything in this step 3 more times. Cut thread and weave in ends at the ends of the sides.

Hello everyone, Have you noticed how many celebs are donning crochet items? I've noticed a lot of crochet shorts out there, why buy them when you can make them with this free pattern? The other upside to making them is you can make them the length, color and size you want!! I will write out directions for a small adjust them as you go for your size. For example to start  do FDQC until you are from one hip to the other and then add a few extra stitches for the seam. 
To start this pattern is worked int twp pieces the front and back. They will look like undies until we get to the legs
