Blog Sharing Saturday: Crystalized Designs

This blog is owned and run by Crystal. She’s a fantastic designer who shares a ton of free patterns on her blog! She also has a lovely website and a shop where she sells even more patterns! Each pattern is wonderful made and fully tested before being presented to the public.

I enjoy the emails I get from her, and she doesn’t overload me with them either which is a relief.

One of the first patterns I ever saw of her was the Gnome Wall Hanging, and it’s the cutest thing ever!

How adorbs are these guys!!

They look like they might be complicated but after reading over the pattern, I don’t think they’ll be all that hard to make. When I’m done with my long list of projects, this is going on the new one. Try it out today:

Post pictures if you make one or all of them!! I’d love to see them!

Free Pattern Friday! : Potholder and Dishcloth

This is a crochet pattern I’ve used in the past to make housewarming gifts. It’s a fun little pattern!

Simple Border Potholder and Dishcloth

This pattern uses cotton yard because it’s the best for pot holders and dishcloths. If you use a special heat resistant fabric in combination, you could use other types of yarn as well. I’d just be mindful of how flammable the yarn is or how easily it might melt.

Change of Topics for Fridays

I’d begun the year writing about fake games and apps for my Friday posts. The games, the majority of them, were scams, and I had to spend way too much time just trying to get the minimum amount required to request a payout. It became too time consuming, and I have too much to do to waste time. So, my final word on the matter is a small piece of advice: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

So, what will I be writing about on Fridays from now on?? My second favorite thing to do by myself:


I happen to enjoy crocheting a great deal. I was taught at the tender age of 10 by a nice old lady who volunteered her time at the children’s home I was living in at the time. The Rio Grande Valley Children’s Home was the name of it, and I lived there for a few years in the late 70s and early 80s.

Ever since I learned how to crochet, I’ve never wanted to stop. I could keep my hands busy while watching television and even focus better on conversations – Attention Deficit Disorder was unheard of back then. My mother thought I was mentally deficient because of the issues I had, and she never missed a chance to tell me – it was a difficult time.

Now, a million years later, I want to share my love for crochet with you, my readers, better than just showing you things I’ve made. I’m not a designer, but I am a researcher. I tend to lose myself for hours looking at patterns. I have nearly three pages full of bookmarks on my computer, I kid you not! I’m thinking about going through my bookmarks and finally doing the projects I’ve got earmarked. They’re all free patterns so you won’t have to buy any. With this is mind, I’m going to share with you a lovely pattern I found just in time for Valentine’s Day!! It’s called the Sweetheart Spike Scarf, and the pattern was created by Whitney at Pine Tree Crochet. Go to the link below for the pattern:

Sweetheart Spike Scarf

If you decide to make the scarf please, let me and Whitney know – especially Whitney, and I’m sure we’d both love to see what you made as well!! Have fun!

Pretty Gray Pillowghan – Project #5

This project didn’t turn out quite as well as I’d hoped, but what is wrong is a quick fix. I’ve decided to go ahead and share it. I found this pattern on a blog called Crochet Parfait over on Blogspot ages ago, but I’d never worked it up until this week. You can find the pattern here.

I used Heather Gray and White yarns from Red Heart. I ended up using one skein of the white, Super Saver size and five skeins of the gray yarn in Super Saver size. I didn’t know I had that much of the gray when I started, but I’m glad I did!

Hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making the project. Let me know what you think please!

Edging for an Altar Cloth

I’m attempting to create an edging for an altar cloth using a pattern from 1915.  It’s a crocheted edging, and I know the stitches required to make the edging so no worries there.

The issue lies with the instructions of the pattern.  It’s in British English from that time period.  This means, some words are hard to translate into modern terms.  The other issue is that this edging uses the same pattern as another edging minus one of the motifs.  This means I have to decipher where to omit the one motif so it looks like the picture.

Long story short, I’m starting to get a bit stressed with this project.  What should have been an afternoon’s work is turning out to be so much more!

I’m also developing a strong dislike for this edging.  I know I won’t be doing it again for a long, long time – once I figure it out.

Just thought I’d rant a bit to clear my head.  Carry on, there’s nothing to see here.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver – I hear aliens are among us!!
