How To Make A Yarn Pom Pom Without A Pom Pom Maker!

Yarn puff balls or pom poms are very popular on hats and as embellishments for crochet/knit/everyday projects but finding a puff ball/pom pom maker isn't always so easy.

How To Read A Crochet Pattern And Kitty Cat Applique Tutorial

Hello! I remember when I first started crocheting, about 4 years ago now, and I thought that I would NEVER learn how to read a crochet pattern. I would look at a pattern and think, "How does anyone read these?" They looked like they did not make any sense to me at all! But as time went on, I learned more about crochet and the patterns started to make sense. Now, I can speak fluently in the language of crochet patterns and I'm going to try my best to break it down and have it make sense for ya'll. For the video tutorial on How To Read A Crochet Pattern And Kitty Cat Applique Tutorial, click here.

Kitty Cat Applique Free Crochet Pattern!

Hello! As you all might know, I got a kitten over the summer, after my sweet Yogi passed away. Ziggy has become a spunky, sweet kitty and I couldn't imagine life without him now. He always wants to be near me, cuddled on my lap or on my feet. He has inspired me to crochet a couple of things already. I've made a slouchy cat hat, crochet cat ear headband and a kitty cat witch hat. Now he has inspired this little kitty cat applique. I think it turned out really cute!

It Snowed! It Snowed!

Hello! It snowed in North Carolina last Friday and Saturday! We got about 8 inches in total. I thought it was so beautiful coming down, but by the next morning it looked like a magical white kingdom out of a fairy tale! So pretty! I'm just a little sad that I've been feeling really sick lately with a cold so I didn't get to get out much in it and take as many pictures as I wanted to but Saturday evening we did get to go out and walk around in the snow before it turned dark.
