Team Flaming Hooks Featured FO of the Day! Flower Cuff

Originally uploaded by Crafty Kitten

 

CLF & Team Flaming Hooks member Amanda Lynn made this really cute Flower Cuff using Motif 40 & Motif 36 (which is underneath the wrist)  from Edie Eckman’s Beyond the Square.

These cuffs are super hot fashion items right now! Actually they have been with the hipster/teens in my area for the past year and a half or so! I can’t count the “orders” my daughter has gotten from friends to make them, and how cute they look!

These are the perfect project to spruce up your spirits, get some immediate gratification WHILE improving your skills or learn new stitches, or…even better, just make something fun!

Well done Amanda Lynn!

Ravelympic 2010 updates…

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a little distracted by all the exciting things happening on my television set! I was crocheting alone, and then the Mogul competition got going and I forgot to keep crocheting and lost what row I was on…Thank heaven’s my big project for the design a published pattern is a pretty easy to remember stitch repetition for the base of it!

So, far I am not the only Team Flaming Hooks member to face an injury, after the attack on my finger, fellow team mate and all star crocheter, Crochetexaminer, had the wind come out of no where and slam a door on her finger…I tell ya, it’s a conspiracy…Of what? By whom? Who knows…All jokes aside, it’s so much fun to do this, it’s exciting to crochet for the stretch of it, stretching our skills, our speed, our talents, our knowledge base, that’s the best part!

With over 50 projects listed on our Team Flaming Hooks group projects page, most of them finished, this appears it will be an active games! I will be featuring these throughout the week…For now, I’ll feature the one I made impromptu yesturday for my neice, Wonder Princess Gwen…A heart shaped pocket purse (that came with some yummy bon bons)…Just in time for Ravelympics and Valentine’s Day! WHOOT!
