Baby Blanket On The Way

photo (2)

I finally found a pattern to make for my BFF’s baby.  It’s called the The Sprout Blanket if you use Ravelry feel free to take a peak at it.   I’m excited to get started.  I’ve already completed the cast on and the foundation rows.  Now on to the pattern.  Hopefully I can post the progress weekly.   Have you all casted on any new projects?  Do you like to make large projects or small ones?  Are they simple or complicated?  I’d like to know.

O Canada!!

I added shipping to Canada to my shop today.  I have been meaning to do it since I opened.  So  now I just need to add more products.


I did just put up the Skulls and Roses earrings listing.  I am enjoying the creative process.  The last post inspired me to make these.  Like I said before once I started working with the skulls I was on a tangent.  Do you ever find yourself doing this?  Once you get going you just can’t stop.  I can lose myself for hours just working on getting the right combination.  It is all about the feel for me.



Purlessence Stitch Markers


I just added more stitch markers to my shop. They are simple pearl styled beads. I felt that they were pretty cute with the hearts dangling. What do you think?

I’m waiting for the weather to take some of the chill off so I can start knitting. I get pain in my wrist and hands when it’s really cold and Georgia reached 7 degrees this week. We are headed back to normal temps now so I should be able to get started. I need to start looking for baby blankets to knit. My BFF is due soon.

New shop product going up

I have been working on quite a few stitch markers this weekend. I also made some earrings in the process because, the stitch markers were just so cute that they begged me to become earrings. I have not taken picture of everything yet.  I did go ahead and upload what I could to my shop.  I will be adding more and more over the next few days. Here are some pictures below of what I have been able to get posted to the shop.   I am calling these beauties blue hypnosis because, they remind me of the hypnotist prop.   I think they will be beautiful on a knitting project.  Speaking of which, I just bought some yarn so I can start working on a new project.  I have the knitting bug.  I think I will make some of these for myself as well to use.
