I love to crochet and I usually sell a handful of beanies a year and every few years I may get 1 custom order. This holiday season in just a couple weeks I sold over 20 beanies. I made well over 30 beanies… some days I would make 4 beanies in the evening while watching Netflix at my friend’s house. I even crocheted a Christmas Stocking for a friend during this time.
I have a few left for sale and I would love to sell them before I hit the road on Monday. They take up a lot of space in my tiny home so it will be a great relief to have them sold. Plus, that money will support me on my adventure. Which you can learn all about at Patreon.com/BlueRoad

These are the last Beanies of the season… next up I’m going to try to make dog sweaters.
Thanks for all your support!
I decided I needed to start crocheting something smaller than my regular crochet items…
I live on the road fulltime on my Harley pulling my teardrop trailer home. So, not much space to carry yarn and things I have created.
I decided to start crocheting hats for wine bottles and food… Every bottle, fruit and vegetable deserve to stay stylish and warm. Stay tuned for more photos but here are a couple I have created so far.
Yep, that’s a witches hat on a beer bottle. I wanted to make it for a wine bottle but we didn’t have one… Shocking!
I had a child friend of mine give me a potato to travel with. He named the potato Pat. I thought it was only appropriate to crochet a hat and scarf since it was February in New Mexico and cold.
Stay tuned for more hats for food and drinks. A must for every stylish household. 🙂
I will be in Montana for a few weeks and need something to occupy my time. I found a ball of yarn in TicTac (my teardrop trailer home). I decided I’m going to crochet adult beanies with this ball of yarn and make a game out of it. The first correct guess on how many adult beanies I can make with this ball of yarn receives a free beanie of their choice from the beanies made with this ball of yarn. Like my FB music/travel page and take your guess. (facebook.com/journeytoworthy)
Made 2 beanies so far with this ball of yarn
I guess beanies are my thing this year. I have made 30 beanies so far. I sell them to help fund my BlueRoad project (multi-media project about my life on the road). Well, it also keeps me occupied when I am somewhere for a few weeks. Here is what is left.

So if you need a beanie or would like to help my BlueRoad project let me know. You can email email@example.com
My life on the road was featured in the CheapRVLiving blog a few weeks ago.
My nephew wanted a Ninja Turtle hat. I’ve seen them with eyes attached to the hat but I always like something that boosts the imagination… so I created hats that are also masks. A little silly but the kids seem to love them.
They are super simple to make. Crochet or knit a beanie in green. Change colors where you would flip the hat. The eyes are a thumb or so apart… I believe I did 3 or 4 stitches. The eyes are 6 or so stitches in length and 3 or 4 stitches wide. Be creative and kids will love it. They can wear it like a beanie or pull down the rim and wear it like a mask.

Yesterday my niece Norah Elyse was born 11 weeks early. I promised my sister-in-law I would make a crochet princess crown for her… of course it wasn’t done. I am in the Los Angeles area and have been for the last few days so I quickly googled a Michaels which wasn’t far away and rode on over to get some yarn. The FedEx store was close to Michaels so what do I do… yes… I crochet a little princess crown in the parking lot of FedEx. Just picture me at my Harley crocheting out of the tour pack… with my leather chaps and biker gear on. I wasn’t quite sure how to do it or even what size it should be. All I brought with me were my crochet hooks and a pair of scissors. I started and of course completely messed up the first try but the second one came out ok. Probably quite large but it gives room to grow… and you can always modify. So it is sent off to arrive on Monday for Norah. (excuse the duck tape biker seat)

I had a request to make an adult size poncho for a gift for a friend. I’m not a huge fan of how this poncho tuned out but it is soft and it is a poncho. Hope the person who got it as a gift like it.
