I almost always am crocheting, but rarely for myself. I do have a sweater two thirds of the way finished that has been sitting in a bag beside my bed for a year and a half. I am usually making things for my daughter’s preschool, my shop, friends, other family members and my kids’ friends. Not much time left over for something for me, but if I had all the time in the world I would start here:
1. Amigurumi Balloons
I love looking at these cute balloons from Planet June. We used to have a birthday tradition of balloons for kids for birthdays that Daddy would bring home. Perhaps I can get my act in gear by the next kid birthday in December to make six of these.
2. The Open Weave c1 (Complication #1)
I want a hat with lots of texture for myself because it is always windy walking my older daughter to and from elementary school. This might be the one.
3. Spiral Potholders
I love the spiral effect of this potholder and would love to experiment with the process that give this look. I could also use a couple new potholders for some variety in color.
4. Swiffer Reusable Cover
I have a Swiffer I never use because I cannot justify the expense. This would solve that issue. I would also like to make some of these http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=39434382 for my church that uses them to dust the pews.
5. Griddle Hat
Ear flaps might make this hat a bit silly on me, but that could be fun and warm.
6. Valentine Basket Sachet
I saw this and it reminded me that I have the directions printed out for making something like this with paper. I am wondering if being left handed will confuse me when attempting this pattern. I once made an afghan that had parts to be braided and had a hard time figuring it out.
7. Owl Potholder
Another potholder. This one in the seemingly ever popular own theme.
Would these be comfortable? I have not made a pair of socks before and these colors don’t appeal to me, but perhaps something with blues and greens would.
I would love to have time to make some sweaters for myself. Perhaps a neutral cardigan like this one.
Here is another sweater, this time a tunic instead of a cardigan. Maybe the color in the photo is attracting me to it since I like that aqua.

I stumbled upon tiptopapplesauce’s shop when searching for the Etsyhooker of the Week. Not only is the photography of her work amazing, but the patterns are just adorable, with many great details. This lovely hat is an example of that attention to detail. She thinks about the backgrounds of her photos as well as thinking about the tiny details in this hat that make it special, like the tassel at the top and the two different color button eyes.
The pattern for this puppy hat could easily be made for a boy or a girl. For a boy, you could just change a color or two and take off the bow. This would be a great idea for use as part of a costume for a party or (thinking ahead) Halloween so that your little one would not need a mask.
With dreams of summer coming soon, check out these cute sandals. With this pattern, you could make a bunch of adorable sandals for your daughter, granddaughter, or other young loved one.
As always, clicking on the photos will take you straight to the Etsyhooker of the Week’s shop. When you check out tiptopapplesauce, please also visit Laura’s Left Hook.
