Gotta Catch Em All

Once upon a month ago, I got hooked on playing Pokemon Go! To declare this love to the world I decided to crochet a pokeball. :3 So with the help of this nifty pattern and my trusty yarn stash… BAM! This dream was realized.

But as I gazed upon my handiwork, I felt something was missing. I pulled out my hammer and stamped a metal tag with “gotta catch em all”. XD

Coffee Cozy

Hello and Merry Christmas everyone! Today I decided to crochet a gift for a coworker, and came up with this… 🙂

Cheery Coffee Cozy

The Crooked Coffee Cozy pattern features a ribbed stitch that is worked diagonally and utilizes an absorbent cotton yarn to catch condensation or coffee dribbles.

For this project I opted to use yarn I had at my immediate disposal – hence the color selection. Partway through, the orange felt a little overwhelming, so I added a few flowers to break up the sea of solid color. As my first cozy, I’m pleased with the overall result. Hope she likes it! 🙂

Cute Owl Case

‘Tis the season of giving! My boss always makes us holiday goodies and I wanted to show my appreciation with something I can do. My coworker had picked up a mug with an owl on it, so I thought I’d coordinate by using this super cute crocheted Owl Cell Phone Cozy pattern and gave it a go.

Changes: For this project I used fingering weight cotton instead of worsted weight yarn, opted for a rounded square shank button instead of the oval and omitted the jewels. In the pattern the toes weren’t separated enough for my liking so I adjusted the stitches to suit. So without further ado…
Voilà!

As it is fingering weight yarn, I knew it wouldn’t be a phone case so I made it into a Listerine Pocketpak holder. 🙂

Now thats cute AND useful! 🙂

Crochet Flower Brooch

This is a gift for a very special lady in my life – my mom. 🙂 I had seen the idea of making a crocheted button flower floating around Facebook and just had to try it out for myself! 🙂

I added the purple slip stitching, leaves and pin with backing on my own initiative. The final piece came out quite clean and I’m really pleased. I hope she likes it! (I love you Mom!)
