My Crocheting

I've been MIA for quite a while.  One of the reasons is that I've done very little crocheting since January.  I hurt my arm and I wasn't able to do much crocheting. Therefore I don't have much to talk about and nothing to brag about.  I have so many things I want to crochet but I can't.  The arm is getting better so I can crochet a little now but only for short periods.  I have only crocheted two baby afghans for a charity project, four hanging towels, four dishcloths, four pot holders since January.  Pathetic, isn't it?
This set if for Halloween and is for sale in our Etsy store.

This set is for Thanksgiving and is for sale in our Etsy store.  Does my pot holder look like a turkey?

This set is for Thanksgiving and is for sale in our Etsy shop.  The dishcloth and pot holder are supposed to be pumpkin pies.

I am in the process of making a set of pot holders shaped like cupcakes for a friend of mine.  Hopefully I can get back into some larger projects soon.  I am in withdrawal here!  I need that hook in my hand.  At least I can still read as much as I want.


  1. I'm in the same boat as you. I've had to keep a brace on for the past month now to try to heal my wrist. It got to the point that I couldn't even lift a drink without hurting. It's doing a bit better now so I'm hoping to get back into the crochet biz as well.

    Especially since I just got my third commission which I'll show once I get it underway. :)

    Hope you feel better sooner cause your stuff is so pretty!

  2. I damaged the tendons in the side of my left arm. Although I am right handed you still need the left hand to hold the yarn taut and move the piece. And it can really hurt. I wore a brace for a month and it has been a month now without. It still is a problem. I see the doctor again on Tuesday. My husband says it is caused by too much crocheting. No way! That can't be! I'm sorry you are having trouble with your wrist. I hope you get better soon.
