Crochet

I’m Hooked . . .

. . . on crochet (pun intended)   🙂    Really.  I can’t seem to stop.

Just after Thanksgiving, I started working on the granny squares after a long time off.  They’re just addictive — 16 squares completed now.  There would be more but I’ve been distracted by these . . .

Aren’t they just the cutest?  The only thing cuter is the name of the pattern . . . Grandma Twinkle.  Gotta love it!  I found this great tutorial on The Royal Sisters’ blog.

To make it easier on my hands, I went up a size on the hook (used size F) and decided to stop after the second round to make a smaller star.  I’m using up some leftover yarn (Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn!) in a color called sparkle.  There’s a thin, silver thread running through the white yarn.  Perfect.

Original pattern on the bottom, two-round star on top.

18 little twinkle stars should make a perfect garland for over the mantel.  Just need to chain them together.

Next up, a set of red.  Then maybe a few more to tie on Christmas packages.  Seriously . . . I’m hooked   🙂

Have you ever gotten hooked on a small project that you just made over and over again?

Thank you for stopping by today.  I always appreciate your visits and comments.  Enjoy your day!

  1. I can’t crochet. My hands cramp up when I try, but I have favorite knitting patterns I go back to time and again. I made little Christmas stockings for all 14 of our vet techs one year. Each was different. Thank was fun.
