Upcoming Projects from Crochet Today

I just picked up the latest issue of Crochet Today and I am in love! There are so many projects that I want to start on. I have to keep telling myself to finish the things I have started but it is very hard to control not running out and buying up tons of yarn!
I did break down and buy yarn for this pretty little neck warmer. It only called for one skein so I thought that was not going overboard.

After I finish that I want to move on to this adorable vest... I know I would get a lot of use out of it and the pattern seems pretty simple too. Bonus!!

The theme in this issue is granny chic and these projects are beautiful!

And you can download a free pattern of these cute little potholders

I will be posting my very first tutorial hopefully this weekend! I need the help of Scott though so it might be later this weekend, but it will be on crocheting a ripple afghan. My aunt has helped me read patterns and I want to pass her knowledge on to you. It has been so helpful!!

P.S. I went to the gym last night and have been eating very healthy this week!! I am heading there again tonight. I feel so good once I am there and on that treadmill it is just talking myself into getting there!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Loved your blog today! I have to laugh... I remember my gramma having pillows like those on her "for good" couch! On the library website, some branches have "crochet today". You might be able to find that issue you want! Deb
