Summery, and hookalicious!

I love making soap savers, and they are one of those satisfyingly quick, useful, and welcome projects in the heat of summer!

Congrats to CLF Member dbknfivec (Kathy North) for earning a Hookalicious Award! Why? For a soap saver? Because, I am in love with the design, and making something useful AND pretty.

I get requests for these puppies from family, and friends at birthdays and holidays. In fact, I recently crocheted up a quickie for my son’s 13th birthday, because the night before he asked sheepishly if I could crochet him a birthday present. Sure, it was 11pm, sure I was tired, but when your almost teenage son requests a crocheted present? And he loved his very masculine version of a soap saver.

So, Kathy, YOU WIN! Because I am biased, and love these kinds of projects! And that photo is lovely!

If you have never made soap savers, check out Kathy’s pattern for this very wonderful award winning bag!

Now only do I love the shape, I adore the simple, but elegant use of the button…simple and elegant always a winning combo!

Hookalicious Christmas Trees!

CLF Member Kala designed these cute little trees! I thought these were adorable…and yeah I have to say at first it was the little penguin that caught my eye…I have a thing for penguins (and gnomes as you well know)….but these trees are really cute, and more realistic looking that the usual crocheted ruffly X-mas fare….

Kala you are duly awarded the CLF Hookalicious award for these great trees!

The pattern is a free download available on
