How to find a Pattern with Only a Picture

I’m not sure if I should squeal in delight over this tutorial by Moogly or close the computer tab and pretend I didn’t hear about it. This is going to be such an enabling device. Okay, I’m embracing it – it will save me hours and hours. Thank you Moogly!!  Credit: Moogly blog

Leg Warmers are Back!

I loved wearing leg warmers as a kid (yes, in the 80s!). I have been so cold lately that I have been avoiding skirts and stockings. I wonder if I whip up a pair (or two) if I will be more inclined to don dressier clothes and stay warm at the same time. Though I do see the fashion includes them being worn over jeans too. Hmmm… I did a quick Pinterest search for leg warmers that has some fun and easy patterns to make. Craftsy also did a round-up of knitted leg warmer patterns (I’m not sure if they are

Elsa Frozen Crochet Hat FREE Pattern

My second giveaway item at the end of November (also an Elsa hat) was a hit with my 8-year-old daughter. She so wanted the one that I gave away so I promised that I would make her one also. She wanted to edit it a little bit so I added a big blue snowflake. The placement of it on top of the tiara was all her idea and I must say I like how it looks. If you want to make your own, check out the FREE PATTERN on Repeat Crafter Me’s blog here. I’m sharing this post on these
