Sorry for the disappearance

It’s been a very long while since I’ve been on here and written a post. I’m sorry, and I’m also not. So much has happened in that time. A couple of family funerals, a couple of family weddings, we moved because we bought a house (whaaa?!), family visits both here, there, and far away. Just so much has happened. Don’t worry. I’ve still been crocheting, for the most part. I lost my will to crochet, crojo, will to do it, heck even my interest when I lost my nanny. That was a tough time. But I got it back. I just really didn’t feel up to and sometimes didn’t have time to sit at the computer typing everything up.

Have no fear. Things seem to have settled down enough that hopefully I’ll be able to do one post a week. Both about what I’ve done in the past two years and what I currently have going on

On the Hook:

  • Color Pooling Scarf
  • Marvel Blanket
  • Eden’s Birthday and Christmas gifts
  • Baby things

I’m back!!

I thought I mentioned I was going away for two weeks but upon looking I can’t seem to see that I did say that. I’m sorry if I didn’t. But my grandparents from Arizona decided to DRIVE to Pennsylvania for a week long visit. Weird that they would drive for 5 days to stay for 6 and drive 5 more. But they’re old and won’t fly so whatcha gonna do about it? Needless to say I HAD A BLAST!! I hadn’t seen them in 3 years so it was great! I spent one week with my sisters and mom following around my grandparents and another week with my cousin and her baby. We also had a typical DiPaul style party on my last night there with my brother who I haven’t seen in who knows how long either. Thankfully he’s done with his Marine stuff and is back home going to college so I’ll be able to see him whenever I want!

I also had a very successful crochet trip. Pictures have been uploaded to Facebook. But I’m going to clean a bit before I sit down for a while and write out the long post that is to come. Til later!

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL CROCHET DAY for 2014!! ::insert mini dance celebration::

Today I’m going to celebrate by ……. crocheting!! Oh c’mon Jess you crochet daily, why is today any special? I’m really not too sure to be honest.

I woke up this morning thinking it was any other day. Boy was I wrong. All my yarn friends informed me of the special day. But when I look it up, I get no info other than it’s always September 12th. I guess it’s just a cool way to rub it into non-yarn people’s faces that we crochet and it’s cool. So I’m saying it loud and proud.

I’m also saying it by finishing crochet projects! I’ve already finished two today and started on a piece of another. Even though I’ve posted pictures on Facebook already, I’m going to wait until tomorrow to post them here. It’s just easier to upload as I go on Facebook rather than here. So there you have it. I’ve finished two hats and started another. Ponder over what they are until tomorrow. Or cheat and look on Facebook.

Wedding Gift

So the past three days I have been working on a wedding gift. I used one of Lion Brands patterns. I don’t want to post pictures or anything until it’s been given (in a week!). but I did use a 15.75mm hook.


How crazy is that guy?! The purple hook is my most used. He’s only 5.00mm.

Now, I’ve made this before (also as a wedding gift). I loved how quickly it worked up and how awesome it looked which is why I decided to use it again. That and I get a really big gift for only $18 worth of yarn. That’s my kind of bargain gift.

I’m going to be taking a little break from crocheting. The house REALLY needs to be cleaned. I’m talking deep cleanse, not the everyday stuff. If I work on anything it’ll be Red Heart’s CAL or the blanket for myself that’s going on 6 years in the making. Hey, my stuff gets put on the back burner when something else catches my eye. What can I say?

Til next time..
