Earning-My-Cape Weekly Crochet Square


I would like to thank everyone who has visited and those who continue to visit my blog. I want to let you all know that I am going to have to take a hiatus from my blog to focus on my family. I guess that's all part of chasing after that cape, right?
I plan to leave the posts and patterns that I have up, and I hope to continue to post an occasional pattern or recipe or homeschooling idea whenever I get the chance.

Fingerless Gloves for Kids {free crochet pattern}

A while back, I posted my pattern for Kids Fingerless Gloves. You can view that pattern HERE. My daughter really liked them, so I wanted to make a pair for one of my other daughters. This time, I made them to go a bit longer on the arms.
She loves them!
I was going to make a flower applique to attach to the back of the hands of the gloves, but my daughter was too anxious to wear them, and "stole" them away before I could do it. Luckily, she let me snap a couple of quick pics!
