The Hooks Have Been Busy

Crochet Hooks, that is
I know I have been absent from my blog lately but I have been busy. Needing a break from quilting I have been crocheting. I don't know about you, but I like a lot of different needle crafts, knitting, crocheting, sewing,quilting, and frequently I have to dabble in a little of each.
Lately it has been crocheting scarves and Prayer Shawls and sewing aprons. Five scarves have raced through my hands using this easy pattern for Mindless One Skein Scarf. If you need some quick Christmas gift, this is the pattern and you will have a scarf made quicker than one of Santa's elves.

Using Homespun yarn, not my favorite, but I have completed two Prayer Shawls using basically the same pattern as the scarves. You can find the Prayer Shawl pattern Here. For the next shawl, I purchased a pale aqua "I Love This Yarn" at Hobby Lobby, for my next shawl, it should make a nice soft Prayer Shawl. I may choose another crochet pattern for this one but the above pattern works up so fast it is hard to switch to a new pattern.
Have to get busy now and make my Christmas apron. Hope you will stop by my other blog Aprons In Th Attic and take a look at what I have been up to lately.
I used Blogsy for the first time to publish this post and to import pictures from my iPad. It is quite different from Google Blogger but I want to able to add pictures to my posts without first downloading them on the laptop. All this techie stuff gives me a headache, I think I will go sew.
Enjoy all the pieces of your life,

I havent crocheted in many years. It was always so relaxing as long as it was something simple. Your projects look so warm and inviting.

I saw s Christmas tree on one of your blogs. It looked fairly simple but I'm not sure how to go about it. It could have been a circle folded over and back a few times. Could I get a link to the instructions/ tutorial/pattern to buy for it. It was from Dec. 2012. :)

I love your pieces. I used to crochet a bit but never did accomplish much with knitting. Garment or small project sewing is my way to relax from quilting.

Your Christmas side bars are so pretty.
