This week has been a busy one for me preparing the launch of a new section of my store – fiber-themed t-shirts and accessories. It’s always exciting to start a new venture, but it can be intimidating, too. My Fingers Fly will now offer t-shirts, coffee cups, tote bags, and more with silly crochet characters.
After my recent posting about TSA rules and what fiber artists can carry on a plane, my sister found this wonderful tool. I’m going to order one and try it out on my next trip. https://www.amazon.com/Clover-3106-Cutter-Pendant-Antique/dp/B000WV1YC0/ref=sr_1_3?crid=P3BAUQIMAAK6&keywords=yarn+cutter+pendant&qid=1557501090&s=gateway&sprefix=yarn+cutt%2Caps%2C163&sr=8-3
Next week will be National Police Week (May 13 to May 19, 2019). One of my favorite baby patterns is the Police Baby Sweater with a donut-shaped baby rattle. The sweater is crocheted in baby weight yarn and can be personalized with any color uniform you choose.
For the procrastinators who didn’t order Mom’s gift in time, you can still get the Kindle version of Poems for Mothers.
There’s also still time to crochet a gift for mom. The Lacy Infinity Scarf works up quickly in one evening and can be made with any yarn you have in your stash.
Approximately 5 oz. worsted yarn
Crochet hook size J
Row 1: Ch 25, dc in 5th ch from hook (counts as dc and ch 1), *sk 1 ch, dc next ch, ch 1* repeat from *.
Row 2: Ch 4, *dc in ch-1 space, ch 1,* repeat from * across. Dc in ch-4 space.
Repeat Row 2 until scarf measures 60”.
Last row: Ch 1, turn. Sl st last row and 1st row together.
Fringe: Cut 12” lengths of yarn. Insert hook in end of row from top to bottom and pull through 3 pieces of yarn and knot.
I hope your mother enjoys wearing it as much as you’ll enjoy making it!
Wishing you all a happy Mother’s Day and happy crocheting!
