Some of you may remember the Crochet Nativity Set CAL from last year. It was a beautiful, rustic little set. Very minimalistic and lovely. I still love my small set with just the characters of Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus, but I decided to expand the set this year and add the rest of the visitors. Also, I figured there may be many who didn’t have a chance to make the set last year and it would be fun to participate as a group again this year.

Welcome back to the C2C Solar System Blanket CAL ! I hope you had time over the weekend to catch up on Day Two. This week should be a bit less time-instenive than last week, as we are finishing up the planets. Today’s pattern is for the two large planets that don’t have distinctive markings: Uranus and Neptune.
Hey everyone! Welcome to Day 1 of the Solar System CAL. For all the details, you can read more here. For those of you who already know how to work a c2c, this day will be very simple for you! For those who are new to c2c (corner to corner), this day will only be slightly less simple as you take a few minutes and learn how to c2c.

I’ve struggled with my crojo this week. Summers are hard for me! Plus, my old iPod also died a few weeks ago. It was a 5th generation classic, so yeah, it was about 12 years old. I snagged another one and have spent that last few days putting all my music on it (some of it needed to be ripped from CDs… ‘memba those?). I have forgotten about some of it and it’s crazy how listening to an old song can transport you back in time. It’s been very fun and nostalgic. Even though my mind was focused on getting all my music transferred, I was able to complete an itty, bitty project anyway, this Crochet Flip Flop Keychain! These cuties are made with cotton fingering yarn, and are so fun to mix and match colors.

I am pretty excited to share this Crochet Air Plant Pot with you today. I was gifted a large air plant last month and it’s sort of been sitting on the widow sill next to my cactus since then. I haven’t given it too much thought until I saw this fabulous Crochet Air Plant Jellyfish by One Dog Woof. So cute, right? Although an air plant will be perfectly happy and healthy sitting in the bright windowsill, it is a bit fun to make a crochet pot for it.
I’ve always been a wallet girl. I like to carry my cash and cards in a neat wallet, sometimes pinched under my arm, or more recently, in a small, boho-style crossover bag. But what to do with change? I don’t use cash very often, but I still end up with jingling coins somewhere in my bag and I hate it. I decided it was high time to take a few minutes and make myself something: a crochet striped coin purse!
So adorable, right?
The idea for today’s free crochet pattern is brought to you by my husband Dallas! He was a real whiz with a hacky sack back in the the day (still is!). It’s funny, and really cool, how you can be married to someone for almost a decade but still learn little things about him/her. He can keep this crochet hacky sack going for a while, and it’s fun to watch him teach our 5 year old his mad skills! I was never good at it, but it’s fun to stand around in a circle laughing, chatting and kicking around a foot bag (fun fact: “foot bag” is the generic term for a Hacky Sack).
Sweetly festive and as colorful as you choose to make it, this bunting looks like a celebration and this superwash wool launders beautifully. You can pull it out every year for party decorations or crochet it in the colors of baby’s room and leave it up for whimsical décor.

I absolutely love Christmas lights. My favorite ones to put on my tree are the rainbow colored ones (as a kid they reminded me of the cherry candy canes, yum!). Let me be clear, I don’t leave my Christmas lights up all year! But I love the ambience that those tiny twinkling lights bring, and I refuse to believe they are only for winter holidays. Sipping drinks in the warm backyard while the kids play is one of my favorite summer pastimes and these Crochet Star Flower Lights make the perfect decor to our back porch.
I really don’t mind the winter. I rather enjoy wearing hats, soft sweaters and my boot slippers. But when Mother Nature pulled a nasty trick last week with beautiful 50 degree weather only to drop 2 feet of snow, I admit, my heart sank. I was ready for a change! So even though spring is still (probably) a month off, I can still bring springtime inside with these beautiful crochet Gerbera Daisies.
