Egg Apron

As you may have read in my last post I’ve been working on an egg apron for about a month and a half. I thought it would be super easy. It was up until I got to the pocket part. The apron part is just about 40 rows of half double crochets. I made all 3 rows of pockets per the pattern by Heart Hook Home. Now, I know her pattern is possible…I’ve seen projects using that pattern nevermind that she uses her own pattern and method…but I absolutely could not figure out how to do what she was describing. Ultimately I put it down because I did not have the time nor energy to invest in figuring out what I thought would be a couple nights worth of a project. So the bright yellow and orange yarn sat in my bag staring at me. Finally a couple weeks ago I decided I wanted this apron done (my intention was to give it to my sister-in-law at Easter…that didn’t happen). I decided to make my own pockets and sew them on. It seemed to take forever to sew 16 pockets but its finally done and that’s what is important. 

I hope my sister-in-law likes this. I found after I started the apron that she has 70 chickens. That’s about 50 more than the last count I knew of so she’ll still need a basket or whatever she uses to gather eggs but at least she’ll be super cute while doing it.

Have any of you made these trendy egg aprons?

Don’t you forget about me

Hello Readers.  Based on the title you probably know the song I’m singing to myself. I’m terribly sorry I have deserted you for a couple months. I hope I haven’t lost any of you. Different circumstances had led to my absence but the biggest downer was even after it was all said and done I lost my crojo (crochet mojo). Unfortunately I missed my one year blogiversary and I also reached 59 followers. Today’s post is more of a hello and let yall know what I’ve been working on although I don’t have photos yet. I made one sister-in-law some barefoot sandals. I’ve been attempting a toddler circular jacket for a friend of my mother-in-law and for about a month and a half I’ve been working on an egg apron for another sister-in-law. That one has really stumped me but I figured out my own way which I’ll share when it’s finally done.

Have you ever lost your crojo? What did you do to get your fingers back in the yarn basket and grabbing your hooks? I would try periodically but I just wasn’t in it. I did make sure I continued to scour Ravelry and Pinterest. I read all your blogs and discovered some new ones to follow. I also carried some yarn with me nearly everywhere in case the desire suddenly struck. I also watched and rewatched lots of YouTube. Thankfully it was still incredibly relaxing. 

So in summary, I’m back, hopefully better than ever and can’t wait to share some projects with you.
