Happy Family Day!

You may be wondering what ‘Family Day’ is… It’s a brand new statutory holiday in British Columbia (and several other Canadian provinces) that falls on the 2nd Monday of February. It’s basically a made up holiday and an excuse for a day off between Christmas and Easter — and there are no objections here!

Anyway, I’ve been falling behind on my posts so let me show you some of the projects I’ve completed in the past year…

If you haven’t noticed already, I really like this pattern. On the last 2 pairs I have here I added 3 rows around the thumb too. Here’s a link to the pattern.

I also really like these Adeline Fingerless Gloves, and they’re stretchier than other gloves I’ve crocheted.

This pattern for Ripple Lace Fingerless Gloves is a nice in-between. They’re stretchier than the single crochet pattern, but not as bulky as the Adeline gloves, but that might also be because I made them with thinner yarn?

I’ve made a few of the Urban Jungle Beanie. The first one I made was a little loose around the brim so make sure you measure J

This one’s my own pattern. I made a case for my e-reader using half double crochets.

This is the first afghan I made. I improvised my own pattern, but it’s just a basketweave stitch

I entered this scarf into the annual summer fair in town and won first prize with it – the cash prize was a whopping $6! I used the daisy stitch (sometimes called galaxy stitch)
