Our 4th Doctor Inspired Bedspread

Last year, I knit Kalonji a Dr. Who 4th Doctor scarf for Christmas. Then, I crocheted myself a 4th Doctor “inspired” scarf to match him.  Then, I decided I liked the colors so much that I wanted to make us a 4th Doctor-inspired bedspread.  Six months later, I’ve finally finished it. We have a queen-sized bed and this is the largest crochet project I’ve done. I’m hooked (pun intended) and want to make more bedspreads!

I Can Now Crochet Hats!

Beanie hats anyway 🙂

Yesterday, I had a day off work and decided to spend the day offline and crocheting my little heart away. Thanks to a great YouTube video tutorial, I quickly learned how to make one and I enjoyed them so much, I made 4!

Of course, I can always rely on my model to make my projects shine. 🙂

You can bet I’ll be doing more of these in the future.

Another Scarf Completed!

You would think all I do these days is crochet! Not really, but I am doing it quite a lot :-). I just find that it is a perfect activity to do in the car or evenings when I can’t bear to look at the computer screen any longer and I need to go “offline.”

So, my latest finish is a scarf I made for myself using the same colors as Kalonji’s Dr. Who scarf.  I call mine my “Dr. Who-inspired” scarf. The technique I used is called “Corner 2 Corner” crochet and I really like this style.

Here is Kaleya modeling it for me.

Yeah to another finish!

 

 

 

Loom Knitting Scarf Completed!

Our family has been working collaboratively on a loom-knitted scarf the past few weeks. The kids have been doing it as a present for their principal.  Sadly, the kids seemed to lose steam so yours truly ended up finishing it up, but it was such fun!

Here is Kaleya modelling the freshly-completed scarf. It was done with 2 skeins of Wool-Ease Quick Knit yarn.

Merry Christmas!

It’s Christmas Day!

For my present to Kalonji, I knitted the Dr. Who scarf and I completed it just in time for the holiday. The scarf is ridiculously long; it took me more than 100 hours to knit – but I thoroughly enjoyed knitting it!  If you know anything about Dr. Who, this scarf was worn by the 4th Doctor. This is my Christmas and Anniversary present to Kalonji.  🙂

And, at home today we are having a quiet day. Kaleya has opened her presents – one of which is a digital camera so watch out for photos from her later on!
