Who doesn’t like Christmas presents two weeks late? Well, that’s what this baby’s gonna be. It’s a headwrap I made for my sister…but since I’m mailing it to her I’m modeling it. She has red hair so I thought this green would look amazing on her. And I kept the flower simple because, unlike me, she’s not in to blinging it out with her accessories.
Two more of the WTESB…i really need to work on that name…but, here they are.
Where’s Waldo is for one of my guy friends. The color was inspired by an American Apparel hoodie that he wears a bit obsessively. It’s a fabulous color for him, however, so I decided it was suiting for his beanie.
The general colors for Princess were requested but I wanted to give her something fun,colorful and playful just like she is.
One of my various ways of paying rent is babysitting for two little girls. Their parents wanted me to design a stocking for one of the girls because her sister had had one made for her when she was born but the lady who made them was too sick to make one for her sister. Honestly, I agreed a little too quickly. I had never made a sock in any shape or form before this, let alone a giant one. But, after days and several times where I couldn’t feel my fingers, I came up with this one.
p.s. The reason it says 2005 is because that was the year she was born.
I don’t know how she goes through dishcloths so fast, but somehow my Grandma needs new dishcloths every time I see her. So, I came up a few designs to appease my Grandma. And I make them for her every time I can steal some cotton yarn and time.
EEKKKKKKKK!!!!!! I LOVE IT, LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! It is so me! Certainly your timing couldn’t be better since it looks like we are going to head for the deep freeze the next few days. While I did not loose all my hair from the chemo I did loose all but a thin layer of “top” hairs. Makes me look like I have hair but there is nothing underneath it so I am cold all the time, and it’s still coming out! I received good news on Monday. I had a PET scan and it came back negative for cancer. I was so excited! That means no more chemo or radiation. I only have one thing left to do and that is have the largest of the lymph nodes surgically removed on Dec. 21st. It was the only one that did not shrink as much as they would like to guarantee that it won’t reoccur, so we are playing the better safe than sorry card… Thank you, thank you again. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. Merry Christmas
This hat was inspired by the woods of the NW penninsula. I wanted something functional but warm and thick ( not to mention being cute). So I came up with this double yarn combination. I knit it using two different 100% wood yarns at the same time.
There was a bet. I can make this hat for less then it’s parent hat one of my friends hat bought. Needless to say, I won the bet by a long shot. But what was even better was that I figured out how to make one of my first and favorite berets. Three of the girls from my dorm got one. Lucky them.
I am a custom knit and crochet pattern designer, a self professed yarnaholic, and madly in love with sunshine, books, BBC and yarn shops. This is a taste of the life of moi. Find more at http://www.towga.etsy.com
