New Winter Hats

February 6, 2018

My girls “needed” new winter hats.  Mostly, my oldest asked for a new one, and why not make a new one for both of them?

The result was warm winter hats, that they look adorable in.

Afghan Completed…Finally!

January 29, 2018

I finally finished my afghan!  I started this project in October or November of 2015.  It felt like it was longer ago than that, so I’m pleased that it has only been a little over two years…as opposed to longer than that.  It’s a nice feeling to have finished the blanket.  I love it.  I’ve been using it on the cold evenings when lounging in the living room and it’s so cozy.  I made it big enough to be shared too!  I’m in love with it.  It makes me wish blankets didn’t take so much time.  If they were “quicker” projects, I’d definitely make more of them.  I think, officially, this is the 5th blanket that I’ve made.  It is by far my favorite.  When I originally posted about this blanket

The pattern for this blanket was free, in a manner of speaking.  The pattern is free. It’s also in German.  If you try to Google Translate, you get a lot of random gibberish involving “air mesh” and “rod air” and “strike.”  I mostly looked at the pictures, read the gibberish and attempted to figure it out for myself.  If you want to see the original pattern, you can find it here.

I’m so happy with this blanket.

My Little Reindeer

January 22, 2018

I mentioned in a previous post that I was working on reindeer hats and headbands.  I even promised pictures, and realized a few days ago that I never followed through.  While it’s too late for cute Christmas reindeer, it certainly is not too late for hunting season.  My daughters made great models for these items, making the items cuter than they already were!

$20 for hats, $10 for headbands

Baby Jesus and a Koala

January 1, 2018

Ask my oldest daughter what her favorite thing about Christmas is, and without fail, she will tell you “the Baby JEEEESUS!” If there were any doubts about this, it would quickly become evident at any point in the year if you would listen to her favorite song, “The Baby Jesus song.” (Aka “Away in a Manger” – we listen to it year round).  So, for Christmas this year, I made her a Baby Jesus of her very own.  Complete with Mary, Joseph, a blanket, a pillow and “lying in a manger.”  It was a huge hit.  She immediately tried to wrap baby Jesus in the “cloth.”

I found the nativity pattern for free through pinterest, which led me to Let’s Knit: Crochet Nativity.

My youngest daughter could not be left out, though she almost was.  I definitely finished her gift around 10pm on Christmas Eve.  So far, she isn’t quite sure what to think of it, but her sister loves it.  I’m sure she’ll be more interested in a few months.  It turned out rather cute.

I purchased the Koala pattern through Etsy, but tweaked it quite a bit to fit my idea of what it should look like.

Next up, new winter hats!

‘Tis the Season

November 7, 2017

With a successful Apple Scrapple craft show behind us, it’s onward to preparation for Christmas in Bridgeville, our next craft show on the horizon.  We’ve been busy starting Christmas crafting.  I’ve been mostly focusing this year on reindeer hats and headbands.  I hope they’re a big hit.  Once I finally have one completed, I’ll post a picture, but as I’m doing assembly line style, I still have 14 antlers, 25 ear pieces, and a few bows to make, plus a minimum of 9 buttons to sew on.  I suspect I’ll be done sometime in….October.  🙂  Kidding.  Keep posted for some upcoming specials, namely in conjunction with Small Business Saturday.

Come and See Us!

Headbands and Hats

October 10, 2017

As one of our craft shows approaches, I have been crafting and crocheting like a crazy person.  I got into a headband kick.  It is so fun creating cute crocheted headbands.  My personal favorite are the tiaras.  I’m hoping these are a huge hit.

I also discovered a new self-striping yarn.  I love how these hats turned out!
