I love to crochet

Happy Birthday Todd!! Here's what I made Todd. It's a Rock in a Todd Costume!! I went with my theme of the pebble masquerade and couldn't get it out of my head to make his present like this.
Next we have a one skein wonder in three parts: one neck warmer and two wrist warmers. I have been wanting to make some wrist warmers for a while. I am not sure if I'd wear them yet. Maybe when it gets a little colder. The yarn reminded me of the changing leaves as is dances through the different shades of the spectrum, while being firmly embedded in the green of life.

I really like the flower clasp because it becomes a vine that is interwoven with the neck warmer and presents itself on the other side as a loop ready to take the flower.

Another Rock in a Costume

Sebee and Phillipa together.

Sebee taking a break from his costume. Even rocks get hot.

Sebee cute as ever smiling for the camera.

Autumnal Bliss

I find it rather amusing, at least from this end of things, that as soon as you tell yourself that you need to spend more time blogging, and even hope for at least one post per week, you suddenly find that it is two MONTHS later.

Yeah, funny.

Well, lots has gone on in that two months. I did almost no creating or reading or writing and a lot of working. But working is what I needed to do because I got promoted. I enjoy my job, but I was also extremely thrilled to have these last three days off.

This morning I got a digital camera. This is a big deal because I have been waiting two years to get one. No kidding. I got a Sony Cybershot DSCW55. And so far I really like it. In fact here's two pictures of what I made today.

Meet Phillipa of the Pebble Masquerade. She is a pebble disguised as a black cat. I made her for the EtsyMN October Challenge. I think I shall make more pebbles, but I am not sure what other costumes to go with yet.
