Infinity Scarf

6 Feb

Here’s hoping it’ll actually get cold this winter, because I *finally* made something for myself…

 

Yup, it’s an infinity scarf in my favorite color and

 

stitch (the Crazy Stitch, obviously).

 

Think I’ll get to wear it before the baby makes his debut in April?

it'll surely be winter again some day!

Cranky Birds

23 Oct

Hi hi everyone!  Wanna see my latest Etsy order?

It had a little bit of this:

And some of these guys:

And these guys, too:

I have to tell you – these guys are pretty darn adorable!  I actually *hated* the patterns I used for the yellow guy and the white guy – I purchased them as a Ravelry download and they turned out much larger than the pattern led me to believe (there were some misleading pictures and no actual gauge in the pattern… boo), so, since it took me twice as long as expected to finish them, my poor Etsy customer had to wait a few extra days to get her cute little…errr…. I mean her cranky, very upset, full of animosity birds.  Luckily for her she had “pattern tester” status, so she got a really good deal!

Don't Steal Our Eggs!

She’s going to give them to her son for his themed birthday party, which is apparently going to involve a slingshot and a crap ton of first graders.  FUN!

Chainy Hat Has Chains.

26 Sep

A friend of mine saw a version of this hat for sale at Gymboree and, because she is awesome, knew instantly that it had probably been crocheted by a machine (or worse, in a sweatshop), and instead of buying it, commissioned me to make one for her sweet little girl:

It’s really super cute – I LOVE how it turned out, and *hopefully* my friend will send me a picture of her little Bit-Bit wearing it!

 

I didn’t put it up on my Etsy shop because we’re actually working in trade – Miss Michelle actually has her *own* hand crafted business, Bit-Bit’s Hair Bows, and is going to whip up some awesomely adorable hair bows for me to give my nieces (yay!).  You can check out Miss Michelle’s Facebook page here: Bit Bit’s Hair Bows.  She *promises* she’s going to get an Etsy shop up and running in the future — I’ll keep you posted (and of course I’ll post pics of the bows when I get them)!
