  •   daisyllama Yay!!!!! 5d
  •   kvercillo Congrats on the awards! Thrilled to share these in yesterday's blog post roundup. 1d
  •   valerieburns Aww, thanks @kvercillo ! I didn't want it to seem like I was tooting my own horn but I thought it might encourage someone else to try as well. I actually went to pick them up today and received ribbons and some award money which I wasn't expecting. It was all very exciting. And I will check out the blog post! 1d
  •   kvercillo That's definitely very exciting. I think it's important to share these successes. Especially since crochet is a craft almost anyone can do! Inspiring. 1d

  •   daisyllama They have a gadget for making pom poms??? I've always just done them myself. Who knew? 3w
  •   valerieburns @daisyllama Yep, they have different sizes and even one where you can make heart shaped pompoms. I guess I just assume it will turn out better if I have a gadget lol. 3w

valerieburns Finally figured out how to do the crab stitch aka reverse single crochet. Love the finished look it gives to the edge of my #afghan. #crochet #crochetaddict 3w
  •   daisyllama Crab is my favorite!!! Feels weird crocheting it, though. 3w
  •   daisyllama Oh, and those colors are great!! 3w
  •   valerieburns Thanks @daisyllama yeah, it was a bit awkward at first but worth the effort. 3w

valerieburns My spoils from the Spinrite factory tent sale! The total retail of all this would have been over $500! Even if you factor in the price of the gas spent I still saved about $300. I'd say that was a worthwhile trip. #crochetallthethings #crochet #yarn #yarnporn #yarnwhore #thecrochetcrowd 4w
  •   daisyllama nicely done! 4w
  •   daisyllama Do you have any projects in mind for them?? 4w
  •   valerieburns @daisyllama Not all of them. I've got a full size afghan in mind for the big balls of purple in the back. The yellow and white big balls I might do some baby afghans that are similar to the pink one I did. And I was really hoping to knock out some hats that I wanted to donate too. I have to look into where to donate though. A shelter or something. The hardest part is figuring out where to store it all lol. 4w

valerieburns Hmmmm....working on a #crochet steps #afghan and not sure about my color choice. I was trying to break up all the pink with a complementary color, but not sure if I missed the mark. Opinions? #crochetaddict #wip #crochetconcupiscence #yarn 1mon
  •   daisyllama Very watermelon or kiwi/strawberry. A winwin, imo. 1mon
  •   specialbekah It was a good call 1mon
  •   seashmore I think the green is a good choice. Maybe the 4:1 ratio of red family to the green is too much, and that's why you aren't sure about it?? Maybe use the green for a border on the left? 1mon
  •   valerieburns Thanks @daisyllama @specialbekah and @seashmore I am going to use the green as a border once I'm done. Hopefully that will bring it together more. 4w
  •   flaminggiraffe I love this!!! I had similar reservations with a blanket I'm making, but once I really got into it, it looked fantastic! I love your colors! Keep going! 4w
  •   valerieburns Thank you so much @flaminggiraffe ! And can I say I LOVE your hair. 4w
  •   flaminggiraffe Aww!!! Thank you!!! ️ It was something I obsessed over for quite awhile before doing, but am so glad I did! 4w
  •   majakongskov It looks great 1w

valerieburns Seriously the longest stitches I've ever used, quadruple treble. #crochet #crochetaddict #yarn #hat #moogly #wip 1mon
  •   kvercillo I love tall stitches. I've done the quintuple treble. 1mon
  •   valerieburns @kvercillo I actually thought they were kind of a pain in the tush lol. And these will actually get braided so it will look a lot different in the end. 1mon

valerieburns Probably should have picked a color other than black to learn how to do foundation double crochet. A #crochetlite hook helps though. I love that there is always something new to learn. #crochet #crochetaddict 1mon

valerieburns My latest creation, an #infinityscarf. Pattern by #cre8tioncrochet. The colors are purple and gold but look a bit too close to Clemson colors to me. I may have have to make a garnet and black one now. #crochet #crochetaddict #chevron #crochetallthethings #crochetconcupiscence 1mon
  •   andi2186 Love it! I'd love to get the pattern 1mon
  •   valerieburns @andi2186 it's a free pattern on Cre8tion Crochet's website. It's called the Rolling in the Deep Infinity Scarf. 1mon
  •   kvercillo Lovely. I've featured Cre8tion Crochet on the blog before - some great patterns there. 1mon
  •   valerieburns Thank you @kvercillo yes, her patterns are great. I have several of hers on my miles long to make list lol. 1mon
  •   kvercillo Loving the color choice here 1mon
  •   daisyllama Lovely!!! And I think only in SC would those be that close to Clemson. But a garnet and black one would definitely represent Gamecock pride nicely!!!!! 1mon
  •   valerieburns @daisyllama I posted this to the designers FB page and someone commented go tigers on it. I had to correct her with a quickness lol. 1mon
  •   valerieburns And thank you @kvercillo 1mon
