My “WIP” is done….

Batman

Well Happy “Hump” Day all!  It is safe to say that I am for sure “Hookin” on Hump-Day!
But just had to take a quick break to share the finished product!  Isn’t he just the cutest???  I LOVE making Lovey’s or Security Blankets and I am super happy with how this one turned out!  On the Original pattern it called for “Safety Eyes” which I didn’t have so I ended up crocheting them. But I really like how it came out!  You can find the FREE Pattern HERE! Plus there is a new one I’m going to tackle “Captain America” but first to finish my last “WIP”. I had promised myself I would start anything new until they were done.  It’s so HARD!!

Football Cocoon Anyway, thanks for stopping by and here’s a peek at what’s almost done!  Not sure if it’s obvious what it’s going to be. Any guesses??

Well need to eat and get back to Hookin’, thanks for stopping by and as always….

Can’t believe Spring is here! Sorry to have been MIA it was a super crazy busy end of 2014 and didn’t stop at the beginning of 2015!

Baby Ella the Elephant Crocheted Lovey

Baby Ella Yellow 2Good Morning All!  Before my day  gets away from me I just had to share the new color scheme for Baby Ella the Elephant.  This is one of most popular crocheted loveys that I sell the most of in my Etsy shop.  I usually make the Pink, Grey and White color scheme.  Well I changed it up and did her in Yellow, Grey and White for a baby shower gift!

I just love how these 3 colors together don’t you?  I’ll be back a little later with some new things that I’ve been working on.  Just need to take photos of them.

Have a great  day and as always thank you for stopping by!

Hats and Headbands

Hats and HeadbandsI wanted to share some hats & beanies that I donated in August. So what does 29 Headbands & 34 Beanies look like? Started these on Friday July 25th and they were ALL finished by Monday August 4th! My Mom helped with some of the hats and so did my Daughter & Son-in-law! Yep he loomed a hat! 

They went to an Orphanage in Zambia – You can read about the Mission HERE! Loved making them!  I have to see if I can get pics with the kids wearing them!  I would LOVE to see that!

I hope to be making some more hats for an Orphanage in Mexico that they go to more frequently.  I barely made a dent in the yarn that I have. 

If you are interested in helping out please let me know. We can get together at my house! I’ll want to plan a “Hookin’ Date” soon! Crocheters, Knitta’s and Loomers welcome! Just want to donate leave me a comment here or you can email me at yvonne@yvonnemetz.com

Hope you all have a great weekend! We’ve got a tournament this weekend so my time will be spent at the ball park! Yes, I’ll have my yarn & bag with me! Wait til you see what I’m working on. Maybe I’ll try to show you just a little teaser!
