Christmas Present: Crocheted Elephant Blanket

  I still need to finish blogging about my Christmas presents! Only one more after this one though. This elephant blanket was the biggest thing I worked for this last Christmas. I received plenty of help from the kitties, who had to make sure the ball of wool could still roll and often needed to […]

DIY Minion Crochet Beanie

This little guy was so much fun to make! And he only took 2 evenings to do as well. That includes all the little bits and pieces to make him up. If you want to replicate him, I suggest you buy Mirage wool. It’s generally R5 a ball. Make sure you buy the double knit […]
