I started crocheting again after many years. Back then when I thought of the word crochet a granny square comes to mind first. No one was wearing crocheted clothes and the fad of crocheting died. I picked up a hook and some yarn and I was on my way. No more granny square blankets for me. Thanks to the internet you can learn anything you want and if you search just a little bit further you will find people who share your passion. I immediately I became enthralled in Pinterest, Ravelry and Facebook crochet groups. If I ran into a snag there was YouTube, I can learn a new stitch from a live person. So two years later here I am, a certified crochet addict and lover of yarn. If you are a die hard crocheter you will understand. I have so many WIP’s going on at one time until I confuse myself. The attack of the yarn has made it to my home. Yarn has found it’s way from my computer room, bedroom, and now it rests in the family room. Pretty funny having my son’s friends over and they are moving yarn to sit down and I provide the entertainment of showing them my finished work. I think that’s the real reason why they want to come by so much. To combat the many unfinished projects I decided to keep an online presence of what I do, make and find on the web.

Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer

Who is ready for some snow?  We got blasted here in Fredericksburg, VA.  I’m still trying to figure out why they make such a big deal out of buying up all of the milk and bread.

Bread and Milk Panic

This video cracks me up every time.

What a great time to get snowed in with your favorite yarn, hook and pattern.

The Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer is just what is needed.  Made with chunky yarn and a large hook used will have you wearing yours in no time. The split collar gives it that boom pow look.  The Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer can be worn over or under your coat or over your top.  You can create 3 different looks with one neckwarmer.

This is not a yarn eater.  I used 4 skeins and 2 were for the neck for the 3 colored one and 2 skeins for the  black and red one.  I think I crocheted tighter with that one.

Ok, I decided to get a bit creative and daring using my two favorite colors, black and red.  My sister said it reminded her of Cruella De Vil.
