crochet:: hooker mojo found

Maybe I’m just sick of the long-term huge WiPs I have going right now, and that’s why my hooker’s block has been so bad for the past few weeks.  I’m still working on the wool-eater blanket and a sky scarf, and frankly I’m bored with them.  I know I need to get them done but I have been procrastinating.  While they are each turning out great, they aren’t giving me enough instant gratification.  So once again, I have set them aside to pursue the greener grass on the quick project side of the fence.

After I got the winterberry potholder done, I realized I still really wanted to do a bunch of vintage style fruit potholders.  I gathered several patterns together and got started.

I’m even messing with a couple of new pattern ideas.  They’re nowhere near ready, they still need more testing but I have the feeling they will be pretty cool.  I can’t find anything by googling them so hopefully soon I’ll have some new stuff to share.

Happy hooking!

  1. Love your fruit potholders especially the Pineapple! Is there a pattern for that one? My sister collects pineapples and this would be a great gift idea for her. Would you please share if you can.

  2. Cute pieces!!! I know what you went through…I lost my mojo a few months ago and while I really wanted to crochet everything I started just felt so blah!! It took me a few books for inspiration…but I like how you found yours in making cute things!!! 🙂

  3. Sorry, I didn’t realize I forgot to link to the inspiration for the pineapple. That’s here:: http://pinterest.com/pin/149533650098267091/
    I sorta followed the directions, but I made 2 and sc them tog, then I added the green top straight from the pattern. I would have made a smoother transition at the edge of the green and yellow had I been paying closer attention – hottie in a movie on TV at the time…
    The watermelon was just a simple circle (inc each rnd by 12) and a 6 dc shell edging. (Don’t forget to sew the seeds with a double thickness of black yarn before you close it up)
    Let me know if you have more ???? So glad you like ‘em 🙂
