Freebie Friday – Finger Crochet

Single hand. HANDED…SEE


I’ve been experimenting with finger crochet lately. Mainly, I like a new challenge. I wanted to see how many stitches I could make just by using my fingers. Turns out, it’s a lot! I started with the basics like single, half double, and double crochet. I then moved on the Tunisian crochet trying out the simple stitch and the knit stitch. Those are the Tunisian stitches I use anyway. Then I tired the star stitch and it came out pretty. I only made one round of it but since I’m using my fingers, that round was pretty big. I turned it into a phone case.

Star Stitch finger crochet

Which brings me to my next point. What the heck am I going to do with this technique? I’ve seen people make all sorts of things with finger crochet, but nothing that I would want to make with this method. I feel like I’m in a maze

Happy New Year and 2019 Goals

I like taking twice because it’s kind of cold and or thick like the Dreamer.

Happy New Year!


Welcome back!  I hope you had a great New Year’s Eve and Day.

I decided to begin the year by doing my annual jump into the cold Pacific Northwest ocean.  This was my sixth-year plunging.  I just love the feeling of a fresh start each new year brings.  It doesn’t get any fresher than diving into cold water in even colder temperature. The ocean was about 46F and the air temperature was 38F (notice how warm the lady behind me looks).  It was a little bit warmer than two years ago when we had snow on the ground.

After my masochistic swim, I decided to make some goals for myself this year. When I was younger, I used to make somewhat long resolution lists and of course, never follow through with most of them.  Eventually, I gave up on the idea.

Last year, I tried just one…

Jesus in the Furnace

I wonder whats that like about? I felt like I was inside of a furnace once years and years before.


Are you facing testing and trials and it feels like Jesus is nowhere to be seen? You are not alone. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were facing the threat of being thrown into a furnace so hot that it burned up their guards. When they boldly were telling the king they were willing to be thrown in rather than worship a statue they had no idea that a miracle was about to happen.

But as the furnace door opened some amazing things began to happen. First…they didn’t get burned up! Yay team! Secondly the ropes tying their hands and feet burned off and they started walking around inside the furnace…awesome! But God saved the biggest and best for last…they got to see Jesus!

Yes difficulties and trials loom on our horizon but God has wonderful news for us. When we fall down into our personal flaming furnace we get to meet…

I Did Make A Hat to Match My Warmers

I did decide to make a hat that would match my warmers. I wanted to try a new pattern. So I used the one that was on the label of the most recent Red Heart Yarns I purchased. It used some Front Post Double crochet, which is a stitch I have learned to love. I had lots of trouble with this stitch before the light bulb turned on (after watching several Youtube videos) and I finally got it. Now that I do got it, I don’t understand why I had so much trouble with it( I guess I needed the visual aids). Knowing how to do the front post made learning the back post double crochet easier. I was not confused at all. This was the first pattern I have done using this stitch. Here is the hat and its stats.
