Best of Show

I was so excited to find out that my crochet formal got 1st place and also Best of Show at the Hog Festival.  I have never won anything and to be best of show is soooo exciting!!!  Here are some pictures my mom took.  She also got first place for her needle point of a farm and she was 2nd for Best of Show.  We had great results for our first Hog Festival.

Neldee in Cadiz, KY

This weekend is a big weekend for Neldee crochet.  My mom entered my crochet formal that I made last spring into the Cadiz Ham Festival.

Crochet Formal

If you weren’t following Neldee at that time I made this for an awards banquet I was going to.  I created everything but the pants, boots and glasses.  It took about a month to crochet everything.  All but the clutch was my own design.

Also in Cadiz my Neldee items will be on sale at Loose Treasures.  So if you are in the area stop by and take a look.  In November I will be there and be playing some music in the store … I will let you know more about that when time is closer.

Don’t forget to put in your order for Custom Made Crochet Gifts for the Holidays.  Just shoot me an email at neldeecrochet at gmail dot com with what you are wanting.


Gray and Purple Flower Hat

This is another hat a friend requested for her mother’s birthday.  (Sorry again for the dark pictures)  The hat is a light gray with a purple line and gray and purple flower.

To me this hat can be worn 2 different ways.

Above the ears:

and then you can also wear the hat to cover the ears. (I made the hat when my ears were a bit cold and that is probably why it even goes over the ears at all.)  🙂

Meditation Hat

It was so nice to have some time to catch up on some crochet orders I needed to fulfill.  It has been difficult and I am going thru crochet withdrawals.  I will be getting my new trailer at the end of next week and electricity will be included for the most part so I am supper excited to be able to crochet myself to sleep.

Here is a meditation hat someone requested.  He was looking for something that went above the ears and open stitch of some sort.  So he picked out the stitch pattern and this is what it looks like.

My head seems to like to wear this hat a bit crooked… but all is good.

Sorry again for the crappy pictures.  Hopefully once I get settled in my new trailer I can get to taking half way decent pictures again. 🙂

Coffee Coozies

I had a friend request a couple of coffee coozies.  She wanted one with a mustache and another one with earth tone colors.

The mustache one I read a blog somewhere with someone doing this.  It is pretty simple. I sewed my mustache on instead of glueing like the person said.  Glue and me don’t get a long so well and I hate how it makes the yarn feel.  So here is what mine looks like.  Looks ok for a first try.

Sorry the pictures aren’t so fabulous.  I was stuck in bed with a bum foot and of course with no electricity in my little shack I don’t have the best lighting for pictures. 🙂

The second one I did in an orange yarn with the bubble stitch.  It is hard to see the stitch here but my theory is it will massage your hand as the coffee warms it.  lol

These are quick and simple to make… I may make a few more.

Today I finally had some time to crochet… it has been forever and I am going thru major withdrawals.  I will post some pictures tomorrow when there is better light.

This is the one thing that drives me crazy with no electricity.  I love to crochet to finish out my day but I haven’t been able to without any electricity.  So each night I feel a little empty before going to bed.  I tried crocheting with candles and a flashlight but you just can’t get into intricate  patterns if you can’t see what you are doing.  Luckily today with all this rain and just enough light I was able to finish up a couple hats and going to finish up 2 coffee cup coozies for some people who ordered.  I am thankful they are all very patient with me.  I will have some picture up tomorrow.

Thanks for sticking around.

I should be getting my new home before October 14.  I am almost there!!  And will have lights!!!  I will be crocheting like a mad woman soon!!  So can’t wait!!!!!!

You can check out this new home and my new adventure on my BlueRoad Blog.
