Daily Mood Afghan for 2015

Hi everyone. I'm always trying to find a way to stay on top of my works in progress. I just started a big one through the mood blanket crochet-a-long on Facebook. So I think I'll make a separate blog page for that and try to keep track of it every few days. Since it is a freestyle project with no pattern this should be entertaining. MOOD BLANKET 2015
Day 1: Two color spiral
Day 2: Six Pink Circles

Day 3 and 4: Purple and Lavender Motif

Jester Hat in Freestyle Jigsaw Crochet

This is my latest jigsaw project. So far it's light and dark purple, dark blue and gray.  It will be a jester hat with three tubes for my hair to feed through. I want to wear it on Saturday so I better get going on it. Today we have to move a bed from Arcadia to Anaheim, so I won't have much time, but maybe I can crochet in the car while he drives to and fro.

Circus Hat With Tubes For Braids

Using freestyle techniques to create a hat is a lot of fun, but you have to keep a careful eye on the shape so that when you are all done it still turns out to be a hat. I just finished this one and started a new one yesterday. I think it's good to always have one in the works. Because of the way the braids go through the tubes, I don't have to worry about it falling off during a juggling show if I take a bow or pick up my next props out of the bag on the ground.

Three New Tutorials Coming

I'm working on three new tutorials for freeform crochet. One is for a headband, and one is for an embellished store bought sweater, and the other is a techniques video.
I made the sample piece. Working with small needles and yarn makes my hands tired faster, so I figured I better let my hands rest a few days.

Hyperbolic Crochet

Science meets crochet in a crazy and vast reef project. This is similar to the curly whirly scarves I've made before and I can't wait to explore it further. Not to mention a great use of all those odd balls of yarn we all end up with.

More Jigsaw Crochet

Today when we were going through boxes of old projects, I found some jigsaw knitting so tonight I got to add some orange and some teal to it. I did single crochet, double crochet, half double crochet and bouillon knots. It's very colorful. I hope I have the guts to wear it.
