I had hoped to have my son's ripple blanket completed by now, but I've been, er, distracted by other projects. Pinterest is a "dangerous place" when it comes to inspiration! Do you have a Pinterest board dedicated to crochet? Please share in comments. I can NEVER have too many ideas pinned!
If only I had more time and more yarn...
My pastor's wife celebrated a birthday last week. She makes beautiful beaded jewelry, something I haven't been able to figure out. She gave me some pretty earrings for my birthday in December so I wanted to make something for her. A Mason Jar cozy seemed like the perfect gift since she sips water out of a Mason Jar.

It's super quick and easy! Since my cozy was for a quart size Mason Jar, I started with the 4 increasing rounds, but I think next time I'd only crochet 3 rounds (or 30 stitches). I like a snug fit. And I only crocheted 4 rounds of SC instead of 5 (Rounds 5-9). The result was a simple, tight cozy with texture in a worsted weight cotton-blend lavender.
I'm sharing my crocheting creations over at The Philosopher's Wife (Mondays), Lucy Blossom Crafts (Mondays), Small Things (Wednesdays), Oombawka Design (Wednesdays), and Natural Suburbia (Fridays).
