My crochet adventures have branched out into their own blog, MBR Crochet, and what I hope will become a home business! Come visit often!

Crocheting Christmas 2013
Here's a shout-out to my lovely weekly knitting/crochet circle, the Denver Friday Night Knitters. You're a great bunch, and working with all of you has become one of the highlights of my week!

Gifts for my SuperPreschooler

As you can see, I made her a simple scarf, a Halloween set that ended up being a Christmas present, and a rainbow bedspread so large that I didn't even attempt to spread it out to photograph it in its full glory. The bedspread is arranged in the actual order that colors occur in a rainbow--thank you, Sesame Street, for teaching us the helpful mnemonic device, "Roy G. Biv" (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet)!

Gifts for others

My Favorite Resources

Attic24--An absolutely delightful and so helpful site, to whose owner I owe most of my ripple/chevron successes!


The historic "Christmas Blanket" (so named by the SuperToddler), begun in December 2011, and finished almost exactly a month later, in January 2012.

Baby blankets for charity!  Three cheers for St. Paul's Episcopal Church and its dedicated Yarn Crafters, for making this a priority, and for letting me join their ranks.  It's a gift that makes everybody involved happy!

My first ripple/chevron creation, which I dubbed my Blueberry Ripple Afghan.

Yarn Along Posts

Yarn Along is a meme hosted by Ginny at Small Things.  Be sure to check it out; there are a lot of great yarners and readers over there every week!  Meanwhile, thanks to Ginny for inspiring me to get back to my hooks and needles.



January 24--First finished object (FO) of 2012!  Ze Christmas blanket, she is completed!!
February 15--Three more FOs!  Baby blankets 1, 2, and 3 are a big hit (with my most biased fans, the Good Man and the SuperToddler, at least)!
February 22--Baby blanket 4 is done!
