The more I hear.....

The more I see and hear from successful or semi-successful youtube vloggers I realize maybe I shouldn't daily vlog.  Some of the daily vlogs I watch I can understand why the "trolls" taunt them and do and say the things they do.  Others I just don't get it.  I guess these "trolls" are just jealous and have nothing better to do with their time than pick at others and make fun of them and bad mouth them.  Yes I know it happens with blogging too, I have seen several "troll blogs" from blogs I used to read.  Same way....some I can understand why it's done, but others I just didn't.

SO on to prettier things......I haven't shown any crochet projects since July :-O  These are in no particular order......

This is my first attempt at a tunisian tapestry project.  It was a challenge for me for sure!  I made this for a friend who is a huge batman fan.

Tunisian knit/purl stitches stocking cap.  It looks knit but it's really crochet.  I really like how this one turned out.

Tunisian ripple scarf.  Second one I have made.  The first one you can see here in progress.  I traded the first one for this yarn.  I think I got the better end of the deal. ;-)

I issued a twiddlemuff challenge to the crochet group I host.  I finished mine, finally.  Monday Oct. 31 is the last day for it.  I don't particularly care for this one, but I'm happy that it will be given to a young person who has ADD/ADHD etc.  Hopefully this will help with some of the anxieties this younger person has.

Not much shawl progress.  I am about 70% done with it.  I'm afraid I will run out of yarn before I'm 100% done.  Oh well, no one will know but me, right?

This is another tunisian knit/purl stitch stocking cap.  I call this the "watermelon hat"  LOL!

Why haven't I made this sooner?  I only have 1 and would like to make at least one more.  Absolutely amazing!  No more burning my hands because I "forget" and grab the handle without a potholder.  No more bulky potholder sitting on the handle or being in my way.

Something else I have done is proven to myself that (at least with this pattern) I can use a knit pattern with knit/purl stitches and create it with a tunisian hook.  I didn't finish this it was just an experiment.  I hope to do more of this in the future.  I love the knit look.....without the knitting needles.

Ok I best get busy.....

and guess what......

that plan hasn't happened for making youtube videos, except for the one I posted about in my last post.  I just can't do it!  I have made a few videos for our business, Cosmic Castle, and posted them to that page.  The popular one is making homemade chicken noodle soup, which we serve often.

Ok off to do something else.  Crochet isn't on the agenda today.  It hasn't been for several days now.  Too much else to do right now.

I Have a Plan

Finally, for YouTube.  I'm not comfortable with telling all and putting my face for the world to see.  SO I have decided to make yarn art videos aka crochet videos.  I'm no professional but I do like to crochet.  Especially Tunisian Crochet.  Go check out my most recent video, I just finished a project.
