WIP it…

8 Mar

So, when I started this pattern, which will eventually be a light-weight spring shrug,

I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS MADE ENTIRELY OF SINGLE CROCHETS.

 

pretty, but time consuming.

Granted, they’re back post single crochets, so they’re, uhm, .00002 % more challenging than regular single crochets, but the lesson here, people, is this:

READ THE WHOLE PATTERN BEFORE YOU START THE PROJECT.  If you don’t, your coffee table will look like this forever

 

blarg.

And even though you work on it every night, the world will probably end before your shrug makes it to the 38 inch length your pattern calls for.

 

Just sayin.  *grin*

Carried Away? NEVER.

Someone donated a ball of yarn to me and I fell in love with it.  I didn’t know how many yards I had, so I figured a scarf was a safe bet.

 

mmm...frosting...

I hate scarves that are too short.  HATE.  They hurt my soul.  So, to make sure this delicious yarny goodness would wrap my soul in warm fuzzies, I made a scarf that was 6 stitches wide (turned out to be about an inch and a half).  I used the biggest hook the yarn would allow, and did back post double crochets (just to be sure there would be no soul hurting).

 

Turns out I had more yarn than I thought I did.

 

Scarfy scarf was a *bit* too big for Nina, too...

So, you might now be asking if there’s such a thing as a scarf that’s too long, to which I say…  NEVER!

 

just wrap it around your neck sixty times and you'll be fine!

…In other news, someone switched the positions of my lip gloss and the crazy glue, leading to what could have been the flustercluck of the century (I think it was me, actually).  Good thing I know the difference between grape and ethyl cyanoacrylate…

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!

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!
