Handmade Crochet Jewelry, Scarves and Flower Kufi Hats

Welcome to everyone who finds their way to this blog!  We hope that you all had a wonderful Holiday Season and that the New Year has been good to you so far : )  Old man winter has stopped in for a visit here in Northeast Ohio and today we are being hit by a very cold and windy winter storm.  So far this is the second winter storm this season and I cannot complain!  We live in the heart of the snowbelt and last year we hit a record high for snowfall.  This year we have been experiencing unseasonably warm temps and enjoying every minute of it!  This weather definitely makes you want to stay indoors with a warm blanket by the fire with a nice warm cup of hot cocoa.  It's also a great day to crochet : )

My sister and I learned how to crochet this year after realizing that we were not happy with the quality and availability of some of the items we were purchasing to make our Flower Kufi Hats (which were a HUGE hit last year!).  We want to ensure that the pieces we design and create are quality pieces that will last.  So, we decided we needed to create our own.  Learning how to crochet was challenging and very time consuming at first.  After we learned the basic stitches and created our first Hand Crochet Scarves, we were hooked!  We went on to Hand Crochet Fingerless Gloves, Hand Crochet Cuff Bracelets, and Hand Crochet Flower Hats.  Learning how to Crochet has sparked a new creative vibe with my sister and I.  We hope to expand our inventory over the next few weeks along with new pieces of Handmade Jewelry.

Here are some pics of our recent designs.  As soon as the weather cooperates and I can get out to take some photos, I will be listing our newest creations.  Please let us know what you think of our newest venture and leave a comment below.
