ChahanoStitch updates!

I recently went on Fiverr and looked up someone that could draw me a logo for my Etsy shop. I found one, the fabulous Gailbunning. She made me a wonderful logo and was great to work with.

I also have been stitching away a lot lately. I have finished up the blanket for my niece, but still need to sew in the ends.


I’m currently working on an afghan for my sister.


My most recent favorite projects were the mermaid set I stitched. A friend of mine has a friend that wants to do a mermaid photo shoot for her newborn, once she is born. So I stitched a cute little tail for the baby to lay in.


Then I crocheted an Ariel, the Little Mermaid, lovey to go with it. It’ll serve it’s purpose as a lovey and a prop for the photo shoot!

I’m really excited about that doll. She was a lot of fun to make. And the best part is that the pattern included all of the Disney princesses, so I can make so many more!

If you’re looking for any crocheted goods in the future, please feel free to hit up my Etsy shop, ChahanoStitch!


ChahanoStitch! An Etsy Adventure.

Today, I finally did it and created my Etsy shop, ChahanoStitch! Currently, I have just a bobble beard listed, but soon I’ll add more products. I’m doing custom orders for now, but eventually (after Christmas) I’ll be able to stock up the store.

So please, check out my shop and let me know what you think!

Crocheting like a madwoman

I should have never learned to crochet again. Holy good Lord, I’ve been unstoppable!

I’ve also completed an afghan, scarf, headband, and am currently working on some mittens! I have a few other projects that I’m working on, but these are what I’ve finished and have taken pictures of. I’m going to be opening a store on Etsy soon (ChahanoStitch!).


Learning to crochet, again

Starting when I was 10, lasting til about 18, I would spend summers back in Oklahoma (instead of my home in Maine) with my grandma and aunt and her family. It was awesome. During these summers, my grandma (Nanny, as I call her) taught me how to crochet. Unfortunately, I did not keep up with it and had forgotten how to do it, now that I’m 29.


Even worse, Nanny suffers from early onset Alzheimer’s and can’t teach me how to do it anymore. I’ve always wanted to start back over, but I’d get too ambitious and dive in too far and totally not do it right. Last week, I decided that it was time to start over and to take my time. I watched a youtube video on how to do some single crochets and started working away.


Almost a week later, and my ball of yarn is almost gone and I’ve got a nice pretty yellow scarf. I also just watched another video on how to double crochet and it looks simple enough. I’d like to make a blanket, as she’s made me several, so fingers crossed I can do it! I hope Nanny is proud of me!
