When I'm Not Crocheting, I Find My Pencils.

When I'm Not Crocheting I Find My Pencils http://www.niftynnifer.com/2014/12/when-im-not-crocheting-i-find-my-pencils.html #Pencil #Art


Warning! Sometimes my drawings include breasts! If you are offended, please scroll by the 'Winged Angel', as I did not feel comfortable with blooping them out. 




I crochet nearly everyday and I love it, but did you know that I draw too? I have always loved to draw. Since I was a child I would doodle on everything...On paper, my school work/books, walls and much more! I still doodle. It's like an artistic habit of mine. I have always been great at drawing what I can see, from photographs of my children and husband, to flowers in my garden. When I draw from my imagination sometimes I close my eyes to envision what it will look like in my mind.

I wish I was talented enough to remake some of my drawings into crochet projects..

Free Crochet Pattern ~Extra Special Crochet Baby Blanket

Free Crochet Pattern ~Extra Special Crochet Baby Blanket http://www.niftynnifer.com/2014/11/free-crochet-pattern-extra-special.html #Crochet #Crochetpattern #Special
















 I was recently contacted about a wonderful opportunity to write a crochet pattern for Stitch and Unwind. This was a big thing for me. With this being my first time ever being given an opportunity to do something like this, I was both excited and nervous! Was this really happening to me?! I am grateful. I am overwhelmed with joy! Of course I said Yes!

 I was thrilled~ So I started on this blanket right away. I even ran out of yarn and had to order more. I was so terrified the yarn would be delayed because of the snowy weather we were having. My children had 3 snow days in a row! I was worried I wouldn't complete it in time, and I started working on another idea. I was relieved when my yarn order came in. I sat down as soon as I could and got right back to work. My knees were kept toasty warm as I finished it.

This blanket was made for a baby. Measuring at approximately 30 X 38 inches in size, however my 6 year old tells me that it is perfect for her. She sleeps with it every night.
