I think the last time we discussed crochet, I had made some handwarmers. That's where I picked up again this time. I made another pair of very easy, pattern-free fingerless gloves.
Then I tried to make some scrubbies, but I couldn't get any of them to lay right when I gathered them, so I took them all out again and made a jar wrap (no pattern! gasp!) and some washcloths instead.
Next was a scarf, I think. Just for something a little different. That was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest. Just a piece of floppy fabric and some lace. It, urm, sits in a drawer so far.
Then, I was flipping through a magazine at work one day and saw a crochet book that was right up my alley: One Skein Wonders. I like short projects because they go quickly and because I don't have to spend exorbitant amounts of money for a nice yarn if I only need one skein. I started with a cute little bunny.

The pattern was very easy to follow, though the math for the various increases/decreases didn't always work out right for me. Not sure if that was me or the pattern in a few cases. Oh well. Close enough in the end.
And, just so you don't think I've completely given up on cross-stitch, I did complete one project. The giraffe I finished back in January has been turned into a door hanger.
It's backed with the fabric you see on the right. Nothing fancy, but just right for a child.
And, wow, I really should have posted these as they came off the line instead of all together, eh?
