Mother- Daughter Belles

I just finished a really fun project a few days ago. It was a Mother- Daughter set of Belle hats. They were so sweet!     A friend of mine wanted a Belle for herself and one for each of her young daughters. I love crocheting custom items for friends, so I jumped at the […]

Mermaid Shells

At one time, I didn't wear scarves. Sure, I wore a winter scarf with my coat, but not a fashionable, wear-with-an-outfit sort of scarf.   About a year ago, I crocheted myself a scarf and fell in love with it. It's blue, green, and orange. It's about 90 inches of merino/silk heaven!   I get […]

Oh, Brown, How You Vex Me…

I have been absent a seriously long time. But you that, didn't you? I had a nice little sickness that started off my blog hiatus. Really it was a bit of asthma irritation. But I was also busy during the past month with many projects, some of which I will fill you in on during […]

Of Cardis and Owls

A few months ago, my littlest daughter, Teeny, informed me that she had grown out of her "Skittles Hat" and needed a new one. Her Skittles hat is the original Baby Gretel hat. It was knitted with the yarn that my oldest son dubbed "Skittles" because it looked like a bunch of Skittles candies. Teeny […]

Peaceful. Simple. Beautiful.

Last week I was honored to do some bridal henna. I've done menhdi before, but never for a wedding. It was so much fun! The bride and her groom are both very creative people. Rachael is a wonderful artist. She may not say so herself, but everyone around her knows better. It seems that every […]

Baby Bag

I often have people ask me how I knit my soaker sacks– like a wool soaker, but like a gown so you can just pull it up and change the diaper then pull back down. If you use wool soakers but have never used a soaker sack, you should give it a go. They are […]

My Latest News!

I am working on some ebooks for you! I very frequently hear people say that they have learned to knit or to crochet, but cannot really make much because they can't read a pattern. I have looked for a good resource to help on several occasions- but to no avail. (I'd love to hear if […]

There Has to Be a Better Way

Blocking. I love the results it gives, but the thought of blocking an item makes me groan. Not all items, I guess. Just the larger items, like shawls or scarves. The blocking will be worth it. The awkwardness of blocking a really long or really odd-shaped item is exacerbated by the small space that I […]
