Some Bunny Loves You!

15 Sep

Remember that Etsy custom order I made a bit ago of Nicholas the Bunny from Richard Scarry’s book?  Well, I really could not live another *second* without creating more little bunnies, so I simplified the pattern a bit and made a few more!

This one went to a baby girl who will be joining us on Earth very shortly (congrats, Eric & Regina!)

 

And *this one* just happened to decide he wanted an ice cream cone and a set of fingerless gloves & winter headband to match!

Purple Tweed Bunny Man!

 

I’m not going to show the gloves or headband because, well, someone is getting it for Christmas and part of the fun of presents is the surprise. But just so you know, they totally match Mr. Tweed. =)

Free Pattern Friday: Fabulous Fingerless Gloves

4 Feb

The Wait is Over!  Print out this pattern, pop in a movie, and get hooking!  By the end of the evening you’ll have an awesomely cute set of Fabulous Fingerless Gloves, which means you won’t feel so bad for watching Coyote Ugly for the seventeenth time…

Ferabeth’s Fabulous Fingerless Gloves

You’ll need:  an “H” hook, a tapestry needle, and a skein of your favorite yarn (I had a skein of 185 yards and had plenty left over)

You’ll want: to put your cell phone somewhere close.  It sucks to have to un-snuggle from the couch and put down the hookery just to answer the phone.  It’s probably a telemarketer anyway.  Put the phone where you can see it so you can utilize caller ID, yo.

1: ch 24, sl st. to join (be careful not to twist your chain).

2: sc around

3-4: dc around in BACK LOOPS ONLY.  (You’ve just completed the cuff).

5-6: dc around in BLO. (2 rows)

7-11: dc around in BLO, dc-inc on last stitch (5 rows)

12: in BLO, dc-inc x4, 20 dc, skip the rest of the stitches, sl st to the 3rd stitch of the next row (you should be skipping a total of 8 stitches).

13: dc around in BLO.

14. dc around in BLO, FO.

***IF YOU WANT TO MAKE THESE BAD BOYS BIGGER (or smaller), just add or subtract stitches in the following places:

ROW 1:  start with 24 & keep track of how many you add or subtract.

ROW 12: complete as written until you get to the 20dc.  At this point, add or subtract your number from row one (for example, if I chained 30 instead of 24 in row one, I would add 6 to my 20dc for a total of 26dc).  Complete the rest of the row as written.

That’s it!  Super Easy, super awesome, super fabulous! (Did you say ‘Voila’?  Come on, say it.  Saaayyyy iiiiiit!)   Happy Hooking, everyone!

Custom Order: Women’s Winter Set

3 Feb

Woo Hoo!  I finished it!  This adorable gift set is currently making its way to one Lunatrix29, who believes it may just be the cure for her “arctic ice paws.”

 

fingerless gloves = the only cure for arctic ice paw, a very serious condition

The set is made of a luxury merino wool blend in charcoal and pale green, and contains a pair of  Fabulous Fingerless Gloves, a 64″ That’s What She Said Scarf, and an ultra warm Hatty Hat.

Methinks this would be an excellent gift, let’s say in… reds, whites and pinks for Valentine’s Day… *hint, hint*

 

hatty hat of hatness

You can get one item for $18 USD, two items for $30 USD,

 

scarf & fingerless gloves

Or a gift set with all three items for $50 USD (gift sets qualify for free shipping, too!  Hooray!).

 

Look how I nestled the gloves and scarf inside the hat! Aren't I clever?

 

 

 

SO.  Head on over to my Awesomely Awesome Etsy shop of Awesomeness and order a set (or two, or seventeen) today!

 

That's What She Said Scarf, in charcoal and pale green merino blend

 

 

For all you Fiber Artists out there, I’ll be posting the *FREE* pattern for my fingerless gloves tomorrow for Free Pattern Friday!  See you then!

Things I made by candle light while snuggled under 57 blankets during our three day power outage (some of which are now available on my Etsy shop, dontcha know!):

A funky, lacy set of fingerless gloves for one of my Pay It Forward friends:

I kind of wanted to add glittery skulls...

This super cute plarn tote bag, complete with vintage button:

Hi ho, cheery-o!

And this wooly, awesome bag just waiting to be stuffed full of whatever it is we women absolutely *NEED* to carry around with us when we leave the house:

what the heck do we need all that stuff for, anyway?

Yesterday I found a grocery store that was closing, so everything was half off:

store closing = I will buy ALL THE THINGS for 1/2 off, thank you!

Which was good, because I also stopped to buy some yarn, which was *not* half off:

decidedly NOT half off. Good thing I saved on that yeast!

I got enough for three projects:  one custom Etsy order, which you’ll be seeing shots of later in the week, and two mystery projects, which I’ll save for later.  Here’s what the rest of the week looks like in HAPPYlandia:

Wednesday: Custom Order Shots

Thursday: Cupcakes!

Friday: Free Pattern Friday: fingerless gloves of fun

…and that’s what happens when you can’t shower, do laundry, wash dishes, or really do any meaningful chores for three days!…
