New year, more designs, more crochet :)

Happy New Year!! I hope your holidays have been filled with lots of love, happiness, fun and most of all TONS of yarn!! ha ha The picture on the left is of course me snuggled in an AMAZING scarf my 15 year old daughter made me all by herself without a pattern (wow!!) and the sweater I am wearing is an amazingly soft sweater my mom bought me that I want a body suit made out of because it is THAT awesome! It feels and looks like the yarn is some kind of ridiculously soft roving yarn that can just rove right on over to my house to keep me warm!! Roving is definitely on the MUST buy list for 2016...

One thing I love about the holidays is, of course, giving everyone their crochet "yummies" (as I call them) that I have been sitting on for
what seems like FOREVER. Finally I can post pictures and talk about them and most importantly see the faces of my loved ones when they get them :) This year, I had four projects (links provided below will open my Ravelry project pages for each project where you can see pictures, get the link for the patterns, see how much and what yarns I used and any additional notes I had on the projects) - I made my second Sophie's Universe for my mom, I made my aunt one of DROPS Design's awesome jackets called Moonlight Mist, I made my son's girlfriend one of DROPS Design's amazing ponchos called Gaucho, and my brother's girlfriend a modified It's a Hoot owl hat where I modified the top of the hat by using the Diamond Ridges pattern by Kristy Ashmore and used the owls portion for the bottom :) I wanted to make a couple more hats for others and maybe a pair or two of fingerless gloves but WOW did the time fly by fast! I will definitely start my projects earlier for 2016.

Another thing that falls within the holidays is my birthday. This year, I spoiled myself and will be snuggling up with three new crochet books I ordered (I included the link to Amazon.com if you would like to purchase a copy for yourself):

                    

I have been watching these for so long and am SO excited to finally add them to my collection!! I hope to be designing alot more for 2016 and these will certainly provide endless inspiration.

I certainly hope your 2015 was spectacular and your 2016 will be even better! I look very forward to sharing designs, projects and whatever else comes up yarn-wise with you! Happy New Year!!
