The snow has arrived which means it's officially the season for handicrafts and a #CozyChristmasMystery ... with vampires.

julesG Looks very cozy. #crochetersoflitsy #hookersoflitsy 😁 4w
rubyslippersreads I got the first book in this series as a Kindle freebie; it sounds like fun. 🧛‍♀️ 4w
ShyBookOwl @rubyslippersreads it is! Book 1 was my intro to cozies and this is still my favourite cozy series. 4w

#audioknitting, need something easy to do, so I'm making an infinity scarf. Also, re-reading the tagged book, can't concentrate on something new right now.

Tanisha_A Lovely colours! 😍 3mo
julesG @Tanisha_A All leftovers. Want to do stranded knitting. What you see in the picture is merely the provisional cast-on. 😁 3mo
peaknit I‘m working on a Soldotna crop sweater...I‘m calling it my Never Ending Sweater! Can‘t wait to see more progress on your scarf. 3mo

julesG @peaknit My two attempts at sweater knitting are still on the WIP-pile. 🙈 3mo
Beholderess TFW I crochet, not knit, but knitting rolls better from the tongue, so I‘m tempted to join the hashtag :) 3mo
julesG @Beholderess Two times out of three I type croTchet 😉 There are a few # for crochet: #audiocrochet #crochetersoflitsy #hookersoflitsy 😁 3mo
Crazeedi That's so cool, I wish I could crochet!❤ 3mo

Different reader, different setting but still very enjoyable and a good length for a wee crochet project. I‘ve still got two hours to go on the audio - might need some wine to accompany it.

julesG What did you make? Looks like a bag or loop scarf. #crochetersoflitsy #hookersoflitsy 😁 4mo
Kaddele It‘s a little bag - it‘s this month‘s project in the Little Box of Crochet. It‘s a cute summery thing - it still needs a couple of tassels but I‘m nearly done. 4mo

I crocheted my first beanie for myself. I‘ve been struggling since I started crocheting to read the pattern for this but I finally figured it out. I figured it out all by myself. It finally started to make sense to me. I just had to be patient with myself. I‘m happy with how it turned out so next time I decide to crochet another beanie, it will be easy. I‘m still a beginner at crochet but with practice, I will get better.


julesG 👏👏👏👏 Turned out very nicely. #crochetersoflitsy (😉😉😉 #hookersoflitsy 😉😉😉) 5mo
kelli7990 @julesG Thank you 5mo

I‘ve been learning to crochet over the last couple of days. And, of course, I‘m listening to an audiobook at the same time.


wanderinglynn It looks great! 👍🏻 11mo
thebluestocking @wanderinglynn Thank you!! (I‘m still figuring out the turning stitches.) 11mo
Djspens I wish I'd paid more attention years ago when my grandma tried teaching me to crochet..... 11mo

thebluestocking @Djspens Ha! My grandma tried to teach me when I was young too. I didn‘t take to it then, but I did find it fairly easy to pick up from a few YouTube videos. 11mo
BrittanyReads Ah! 😆Good luck! I just recently started myself! 11mo
Aimeesue Took a while sitting with it, but in the end I thought Warlight was an incredibly good book. 11mo
jenni_elyse Oh yay! You‘re learning! I‘m so happy! 11mo
thebluestocking @jenni_elyse Yes! And you were definitely part of the inspiration. I‘m totally enjoying it, but I might have some questions for you! 11mo
jenni_elyse No problem! I‘m happy to answer any questions you may have. 11mo
RealLifeReading Yay more crocheters on Litsy! 11mo
thebluestocking @jenni_elyse Thank you! I‘m having trouble with the edges. 11mo
thebluestocking @RealLifeReading Yay! Happy to join the ranks. 11mo
AceOnRoam Ohh great hobby. It's great for audiobooking! 11mo
thebluestocking @AceOnRoam Definitely! I cruised through several hours of audiobook yesterday. 11mo

After a long day at work, I decided to wind down with a movie and crocheting. I've been working on this blanket off and on for a couple months now. Thankfully my cousin isn't rushing me to finish it.

Samplergal Beautiful! I knit but can‘t crochet at all. Those colors are nice. 12mo
cassiopia @Samplergal thank you! I'm trying to teach myself to knit, but so far it's not going so well 😄 12mo

I started this on Sunday during a bit of downtime in my rehearsal. But now I find myself torn between reading it (I‘ve been dying to read it since I finished the first one months ago) and working on this wedding gift for a friend. It‘s crocheting up quickly, so no worries about making the deadline (early February) but the yarn feels so soft and it‘s hard to put it down!

@IamIamIam @BrittanyReads #crochetersofLitsy

ravenlee @robinb This is the one I mentioned a few days ago. I‘m glad you have some special ones. I can only hope the ones I make can be as appreciated! 12mo
IamIamIam 😍😍😍😍😍 That's so gorgeous!!! The ripple has confused me so far and I've tried at least 3 times! My class asked how to do it but I pulled up a pattern and we were all stumped! Lol, it's an introductory class so I'm not outmatched by talent. 😂 12mo
gradcat That is a beautiful quilt? Throw? Whichever it is, you‘re very talented! I love the colors, too! 12mo

robinb @ravenlee Oh my...this is gorgeous! ❤️ And I don‘t blame you at all...I‘d be hard-pressed to put something that soft and inviting down to! 🤩 Lucky couple! 😊 12mo
ravenlee @IamIamIam Thank you! This is the pattern I‘m adapting https://www.yarnspirations.com/bernat-star-blanket/BRC0302-005594V.html - I‘ve made it several times as a baby blanket (my almost 8-year-old nephew still snuggles under his, which only covers his chest now!) and this is my second time as a full-size. It‘s pretty easy to follow. Have you tried ripples from the tagged book? I‘ve done a couple successfully, with a little trial/error. 12mo
ravenlee @gradcat @robinb Thank you! I find it difficult to sit still, so my mom taught me crochet as a kid, and I self-taught knitting in college. Now the problem is what to do with all the blankets and scarves I can‘t stop making! 12mo
gradcat @ravenlee I want to learn how to do that! I quit smoking about 8 years ago, and I‘m forever searching for something to do with my hands while I‘m reading...is it something you can do without looking at it constantly? 12mo
IamIamIam @ravenlee Ooh, I just downloaded it! I'll going to give it a shot. I had a star pattern for a tree skirt that I have yet to get to but, of course, I bought enough yarn to make 5 of them about 4 years ago. Also, you can donate your scarves & hats to local nursing homes! I'm still angry that our school won't take handmade items for the winter drive they run. 😡 12mo
robinb @ravenlee look on the bright side, you‘ve always got wonderful, warm gifts on hand for gift-giving to friends and family! And everyone loves homemade best! ❤️👍 Ever thought about places like St. Jude? I had a friend who got together with other friends every year and made scarves and caps to donate there. 12mo
BrittanyReads Thanks for tagging me! This is beautiful. What a thoughtful gift!! 12mo
ravenlee @robinb @IamIamIam I donated about 30 hats and scarves last winter to a coat drive for the homeless. My problem is more that I have made all these blankets, and didn‘t realize how many I have, so my closets are overflowing and it‘s hard to part with any of them! It‘s a good problem to have, though. 12mo
IamIamIam @ravenlee It really is a good problem! I do my local nicu for baby blankets and the VA women's clinic. Where are you located? My MIL ships blankets to an organization in Florida called High Risk Hope also. 12mo
robinb @ravenlee wow, that‘s amazing to be able to donate that much...good for you!!! ❤️😊 12mo
ravenlee @gradcat I‘d say yes and no - at the start it takes a lot of watching and counting but it gets better. But I think knitting is much easier to do by touch, once you have a little experience. 12mo
hermyknee So cute! This is why I love audiobooks - multitasking! 🤗 12mo
cassiopia That is so pretty!!! What pattern is this? 12mo
ravenlee @cassiopia I included the pattern link in a comment above - it‘s a star blanket from Bernat. I made a couple as baby blankets and liked it so much I enlarged it! 12mo
cassiopia I will definitely check this pattern out after I finish the two I'm currently working on. 12mo

Set aside my reading today to work on some blankets for the furbabies at an Animal Shelter. 💕🐶🐯

SaturnDoo I make crocheted blankets for 🐶🐶 at the animal shelter too with my scrap yarn. And for 🐱🐱, I make double strand mats with scrap yarn ❤💜❤💜 Yours are very pretty. 2y
MiyakoBunny This is awesome 👏🏼 😍 2y
Dpotter @SaturnDoo Thank you. 😊 I use all my scrap yarn for my blankets too. 2y
Dpotter @MiyakoBunny Thanks! 😊 2y
