Urban Reflection CAL Week 4: Border and Blocking

My Version of the Spiral Hair Bows

Ok, you guys are going to think I'm crazy for making these, but here's my story - please withhold judgement till the end. I wore them when I was a kid, everyone did right? And sometimes when you've done something as a kid, in an era where people would have been better served to stay home and sit in jammies rather than be seen in public in their non-age-appropriate-spandex, you'd just rather not repeat history and subject your children to the same horror you have when you look through grade school photos.

Enter the SPIRAL HAIR BOW PATTERN. A friend of mine designed these Spiral Hair Bows and was looking for testers. My thought process - "This was maybe the one thing of all those grade school outfits that I liked. And I have girls.... But I don't know... Maybe they're just too outdated and should be burned with all the rest of the 80's garb... Oh what the heck, they'll work up really fast and if I don't love them, I can always not make any more. That's pretty easy to do right?" 

So I finish up my first pair. They don't look like much, just some spirals on oppostie ends of a big string.... Eh, I'll tie them in her hair, sometimes things look different when worn right? - HOLY COW!!!!!!! The head of my daughter was all these Spiral Hair Bows needed to make them magical!!! (And that would be true for any little girl!)

They are ADORABLE!!!!! Seriously all other 80's accessories can take a hike! (I kind of have a double standard here because I also really love leg warmers.... but we're not talking about that right now.)


These are so cute and work up SOOOO fast! You will be amazed!
Schere's Crafty Crochet is the designer. You can find her on FACEBOOK and RAVELRY.
You will love these on your little girl! Just get over your 80's mind block and give them a try. ;) I did!!! And look - They go good with ANY outfit!!!

Owl Dish Scrubbie

Here is the window dressing promised in the Scrubbie Teaser Post from a couple weeks ago! How freaking adorable are these little owls???? I was so excited when my friend came to me with this idea! I approached Lorene from Cre8tion Crochet and asked her what she thought about me linking to her post and I was soooo glad that she was ok with it! Look how cute these are!!!!! 
Alright, so step one is going to be to complete the scrubbie from the previous post, found HERE. Once you have completed that you can follow along with the rest of the pattern here:
Materials  Cotton yarn in as many colors as you like. (You will want to use cotton so that it absorbs water and is more durable for repeated washings. I (5.5 mm) Hook Yarn needle Extra strips of nylon net material from previous step. You are going to stuff the owl with it.
Notes You can put a scrubbie in front, or in back or in both places. However you think it will work best! I have completed one owl with the scrubbie in the front (the orange an…

Chevron Love Afghan

Let's get ready to CHEVROOOON!!!
Woohoo!!! This pattern has been tested and is now ready for you to all enjoy! It's actually pretty simple. I think you all will be pleasantly impressed. I had so much fun making this afghan. I haven't made one in about 5 yrs. I got into a slump and between this chevron afghan and another that has me busy currently, I have come back into the world of afghans! I LOVE making them again! : D HOORAY! Also, for me, it was so fun and refreshing to be making this in boy colors. I have two girls so it isn't often that I get to play around with blues and greens and it was so so much fun!

If you are a member of pretty much any crochet group on social media I'm betting by now you have heard of or seen the new planned pooling argyle craze. To catch you up in case you have no idea what I am talking about: color pooling with yarn is what happens when you work with a variegated yarn and the colors either seem to group together or form distinguishable patterns within your finished item. I'm sure you've made a hat or and somehow the green in the variegated yarn always seems line up or something similar. Planned pooling is basically planning ahead of time to make your variegated yarn come together in a way that creates a …
