I finished so many things this last week! I could not wait to share them all with you. So, please grab something wonderful to drink and a project…lets chat!
Crochet This Caterpiller Baby Cocoon and Hat set with me! This is sized for a newborn and perfect for newborn photography. Feel free to go up or down one hook size to accommodate if a bigger or smaller baby is expected.
The Materials Needed:
You will need red, yellow, brown and three shades of green yarn in a size 4 worsted weight acrylic. Here is the yarn I used:

Hi guys! Nice to see you all and I hope you are doing well. Guess what!
I did a yarn review on Red Hearts new yarn cakes “Its a Wrap” and “Its a Wrap Rainbow”
|Its A Wrap|
|It’s A Wrap Rainbow|
I did a little bit of yarn cake surgery to omit the yellow. I chose to go up one size on the hook to produce a drapier and airy shawl for this Texas climate. It took me about 5 rows of the pattern repeat to get the pattern down and then I just used a progress keeper on both sides to keep from crochet too few or too many stitches per row. Got to love that clean and pretty edge.
I would love to try this in some cotton! I think it would be amazing.
Thanks for joining me today! Have a good one ❤
Ohhh its baby season again! They are everywhere. Absolutely adorable. You know what else is everywhere? Succulents. Succulents and Cacti as far as the eye can see in art, stickers, slippers…you name it. But, not newborn photography. Until now. Here is my contribution to the cactus madness. My succulent baby cocoon. It’s an interesting crochet that won’t take you too long. And the finish project will make any new parent smile. So, grab a hook and lets play!

As always if you see something on my blog that you like and you do not want to make it yourself then feel free to contact me for a custom order on Etsy. Be sure to use the hashtag #succulentbabycocoon if you post pictures of your make.
Take care and see you next time!

Hello! Today we are crocheting a swatch. I do this with all new yarns to see how they behave. I will be using Lion Brand Vanna Solid in Aqua and a J Hook. It’s a great way to see what hook you want to use, how a yarn washes up, and a way to compare it to other yarns that you have also swatched. I find it very relaxing, too. So grab a hook and some yarn and let’s have fun!
If you are swatching:
So…about the Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice. I feel silly even reviewing this yarn. It feels like such a standard yarn. It is really what I gauge other yarns against. But, in the name of science I will move on with this!
