Sweaters and Hippos

I love all the seasons, but I must admit the Fall has to be my favorite. I try not to rush time away however I LOVE it when it is time for sweaters,  fresh apples, sweet potatoes{’cause where I come from we don’t do pumpkin spice 😉 }, cooler weather and of course the NC State Fair. Yesterday I entered my list of items to show, and realized how far I have come since that first entry. As a crocheter I have expanded into more fashion wear than I ever imagined that I would. I am so thankful for that one friend, they know who they are, that kept telling me I should send in my stuff to the fair. It has been a wonderful experience so far! Just the thought of how many people see my work really exciting. This afternoon I finally finished the Child’s Crew Neck Cardigan. http://www.yarnspirations.com/patterns/childs-crochet-crew-neck-cardigan.html It is the first time I have made a sweater that was made in panels to sew. I am the first to tell you I don”t care for sewing too much, but this turned out really pretty! It is the first of two, so on to the next one!!! I must show you the Pip the Hippo that I made from One and Two Company‘s pattern. I can’t say enough about how wonderful they are. Well  I must be off to finish up my husband’s (late) birthday present. I can’t wait to show you all that as well. Until we talk again, Don’t worry be crafty! ~ Jama
