Pink Leg Warmers

Miss Munchkin has a birthday coming up next month – can you believe she will be eight? No way!

I showed her a Pinterest pin of Girly Leg Warmers and asked if those were something she would wear. Her response? “Oh yes! So cute!”

And here they are, completed with time to spare before I need to send her birthday package in the mail. I hope they fit!

I crocheted the leg warmers with Loops & Threads Charisma Baby yarn (Pink), a very soft yarn that I also used to make both Miss Munchkin and Miss Kitty ponchos Christmas 2012.

I am super pleased with them. In fact, I’m tempted to make myself a pair, albeit in a slightly different color!

Crochet Flower Choker

Isn’t this the cutest necklace?

Crochet Flower Choker in Bamboo Thread

I made this for Fiona for Valentine’s Day. I wish I had had a brighter pink yarn to use, as bright pink is Munchkin’s favorite color. This was made with Aunt Lydia’s 100% Viscose from Bamboo Crochet Thread (Pure Pink). It is so amazingly soft.

Here I am modeling it before I mailed it off to Miss Munchkin.

I will be making one of these for myself in something other than pink (I have several blues and greens and purples in this soft thread). The original pattern is one I found on Pinterest (of course!). You can find it on my Jewelry Ideas Board (along with many other great crochet jewelry ideas) or go directly here – Crochet Flower Choker Pattern.

So many great crochet ideas …. Not enough time to crochet them all!

Weekly Overview February 17, 2014

Ironwood tree Outside My Window the ironwood tree is beginning to bud. The morning clouds are beginning to clear away, leaving behind wispy remnants in the blue sky.

I am thinking about blog posts, blog schedules, and Quicken.

I am thankful for being able to go back to bed this morning for more sleep, which helped chase away the tummy blechs from last night’s dinner.

From the kitchen leftover pork chops and sauerkraut for the guys, asparagus and baked zucchini (with marina sauce) for all of us, along with a large salad for me (after I get more lettuce washed).

I am hoping Bill’s new task begins soon and continued progress on the job hunt front.

I am reading Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin.

I am busy creating Kat’s purple Wrapped in Lace shawl.

I am hearing Meet Me In Montana, by Dan Seals & Marie Osmond (listening to wsmonline.com), along with the house air conditioning unit.

Around the house & garden the dining room table has print-outs of recipes scattered about that need to be put into their appropriate binders (Vegetarian & Vegan, South Beach, Recipes to Try). There is still a good bit of the front yard to finish weeding (dried remnants from last summer along with a few newly appearing weeds) and the garden containers in the backyard still need cleaning out.

In other news my knee is feeling some better. For the past week I’ve been wearing my Dr. Scholl’s shoes (my dancing shoes), rather than my sneakers. I really need to get to a shoe store and replace those sneakers.

One of my favorite things pictures of my granddaughters.

Weekly Overview A quiet week with the emphasis on finishing Quicken (so close to being up-to-date). I also plan to finish setting up a Blog post schedule, and maybe make some progress on a house cleaning/daily routine schedule. I need to make an appointment to get the Neon’s oil change/tire rotation done. I also need to make appointments for both Bill and I to visit the chiropractor. Thursday evening we will be watching the Budweiser Duel (NASCAR). And it looks like Bill & I might be making the trek to Phoenix on Saturday so Bill can do another certification test. Sunday will definitely be spent at home watching the Daytona 500.
