Some of these have been in storage and I thought I would bring them out and put them in the shop just in case someone was looking for a quick gift. A couple of them are not meant for men … Continue reading →
Remember this from the last post? Well, that little beginner has grown into a full grown hat and will soon be introduced to the shop. This was a fun knit and there is another one made from a different fiber that is done and needs to be photographed. I still have the itch to make some more of them.
Here it is in its finished glory. I did modify the pattern but not so much that I can clam it as my own.
Red Heart With Love in Pewter. Acrylic Worsted 370 yards. This is a great hat for a boyfriend – just saying.
Speaking of boyfriends, I love this hat and pattern in this fiber. This is actually more gray and black than what’s showing in the photo which is kinda looking bluesy to me. You can wear it slouchy like this or fold the rim to a cuff and wear it beanie style. Lion Brand Tweed Stripes in Marble. Acrylic Bulky 144 yards
When I first made this hood, I didn’t know if I liked it. But when I put it on Oona, I thought it was kinda cute. Certainly enough for me to listen to a ball of yarn if it says it wants to become one. Caron One Pound in Medium Gray. Acrylic Worsted 826 yards
This cowl is a quick crochet and pretty fun – but quick, bulky projects are often fun. Yes, I photographed her wearing a halter. Still works for me. The yarn may come as a bit of a shock for those who think I work only with acrylic yarns. Plymouth Encore Mega 75% acrylic 25% wool Super Bulky 64 yards.

I made the first Sidewalk Shawl and discovered I liked it a lot and so I made five more and I am hoping to find enough in the stash to make another one. I am thinking there’s some in the blue … Continue reading →
I was glad to read stripes were still in vogue (and Vogue.) I wanted to have some fun with stripes and this is what I came up with. As soon as this halter was finished, it was purchased. When you create items to sell, you can’t ask for anything better than that.
I am now on the lookout to do more stripey things when they present themselves.
