The Clementine Hat

This cute and stylish hat can be made in almost any color. If you want to make it a little fancier, you can choose an embellishment from a butterfly, interchangeable flower, or a heart. 




I used Red Heart Shimmer on this one, I had almost no fraying or splitting and the yarn is softer then I expected for having the glitter in it.

It is available in my Etsy shop.

Life's A Beach Bag

It's been a few days since I posted anything new in my Etsy store or on my site.  I've been working on some custom orders and on a baby blanket/hat set.  I always forget how long blankets take, even when they are for tiny people.

I took a break last night a whipped up one of these cute beach bags, I really love the way it turned out and I am looking forward to making lots of variations of it.


If you want one of your own, it is available in my Etsy store :)

I'm working on LOTS of new stuff, it would go faster if I didn't have a real job too!

The Amber Hat

This cute and stylish hat can be made in almost any color. If you want to make it a little fancier, you can choose an embellishment from a butterfly, interchangeable flower, or a heart. 




This hat is difficult to photograph without a child model because you can't really tell the shape of it.


I created this hat using Lion Brand Hometown.  It was a touch thicker then I would have liked but it was soft and worked up quickly.  It had very little fraying.  I also used a K hook instead of the recommended N because I wanted a tighter stitch.
It is available in my Etsy shop.

The Rosie Hat

Yay!  I made a new hat :)  This one I'm calling The Rosie Hat because when I created it I was watching The Killing on AMC and they were looking for a girl named Rosie.

I used the Lion Brand Baby's First yarn for this one, it's definitely my favorite for baby hats.  It's such a durable yarn.


I have this hat available in my Etsy shop :)

Forever Yarn - Doylestown, PA

Today I made my first trip to Forever Yarn in Doylestown. The shop was a little hard to find because it's kind of behind a pottery shop.

The interior was well displayed and they had a good variety of brands, materials, and colors. There were several yarns that I hadn't seen before, it's a little on the pricey side but the service was fantastic.

I got 3 skeins.

My favorite is a lovely metallic nylon yarn. It's mostly gold and copper with black weaves through. I'm thinking it would make a nice fringe material on a black scarf, or work as a second strand in a hat.

The second is a gorgeous summer color mix of yellow, orange, red, and white. It's a cotton/rayon blend.

The final yarn is this pretty lavender/gray mix. It has a bit of purple sparkle and is a blend of rayon, linen, silk, and nylon.

I'm not sure what I'll make with them yet, any suggestions?
