Big Crochet Project Finished

Just finished up this rug. I crocheted around strips of cut up tee shirts (t-yarn) using several strands of cotton thread. Measures 65 x 54 inches. I left a few knots here and there to make it look more rustic. It took me about 1-2 months to make ( put it down for a while)
Now available in my shop DebbieCrochets

Grand Re- Opening Debbie Crochets on Artfire

It's been a while since i closed up the Artfire shop, but i figured i would give it another shot. I started listing items that are soon to expire in my Etsy shop. I'm doing the basic account just to see how it goes. I only have a little bit listed so far, but there's some pretty good deals with free shipping if you would like to check it out. Limited to U.S. shipping. If outside the U.S. just message me with your zip code on there for a shipping quote.

Penguins & New York Bound

Well it's been three years since i went to NY on the vacation from hell. It was supposed to be two weeks, but hubby got really sick and was in the hospital a few times and we ended up being there five months.

He's doing pretty good, and he wants to make the trip again to see the family. We have the tickets for next month. Fingers crossed. Wish us luck.

Other than that, now i would like to present one of my latest crocheted items, an adorable penguin afghan with a stuffed penguin. I've made a few of these in the past. I don't make them that often as they are a lot of work. So you can get this one available now in my shop. I can't say when i will be making another.

Yarn Score From The Thrift Store

Since my shop sales have slowed down, I've decided to crochet myself a pullover sweater from a free pattern i found on line

So far i'm about 12 inches up from the bottom of the first half. Pretty easy so far, (fingers crossed) Sorry, picture/color isn't great, but you get the idea.

Here's my progress. I'm doing a extra large.  The pattern covers sizes extra small to 4/5 x-large. I'm using Caron Simply Soft Soft Green 9739. I scored a bunch of it from a thrift store for peanuts! The bag of yarn i bought even had an unfinished king size afghan made with the same yarn that must have at least 15 skeins worked into it. I think i paid $5.00 for it with a few full skeins of yarn. The balls of yarn are what i made off the afghan. Now i'm just working off it.
The only forseable change i may make to the pattern itself is the desigh on the arms. I may just continue with the same main stitch pattern.
Will keep you updated on my progress.

My Crochet Today Snake Bag Holder

Ok actually i didn't make it today, but it's one of the latest..
I came up with the idea from making my door snakes. I've only made this one so far as sort of a test to see how it goes.
I have been working on making the door snakes a lot, but starting to get bored with them so i need to look for a new project. Will keep you posted.
