Tolt Folded Bag


Here is yet another in a long line of tote bags that I am dying to have! Thanks to Tolt Yarn and Wool for sharing! It seems pretty simple. A few folds on your finished knitted piece and BAM! Cute tote!

Newsboy brim hat


I have had this pattern for a while and I finally found the perfect yarn for it! This was easier than I thought with the brim. Top it off with tiny wooden buttons and I’d say it’s pretty close to the pattern picture. Yeah buddy! I done good!

Want the pattern? Get it here!

I can Bear-ly Contain Myself!

    My 2nd attempt working chunky yarn and I think it came out ok. Found the pattern for this newborn hat on Hopefully Honey which is also where I also found the frog one I did a short while ago. I love the styles from this site. Very unique and a fun uses of chunky yarns which I am developing a new love for. 

So soft and cuddly! I may have done it wrong but I feel like with the muzzle and nose on this one that it’s a bit front heavy for a newborn and I don’t have any babies to test the theory. If anyone makes this and has access to wee kiddos, let me know how it works out! They have enough balance issues as it is without adding heavy but adorable head gear. 

AAAARGH!

I’ve hit a complete creative dry spell! Why?! Is fate paying me back for the less than friendly hand gesture I gave that guy while driving a few weeks ago? It’s killing me!

No crochet, no knitting…nothing. I’m dead in the water. I keep thinking I need some inspiration. One really good pattern that pulls me out of it but then I think “To what end?”. Who will I make it for? Should I sell or give it away?

Life is nothing without a little creativity and mine just stuck her head in the oven and turned the gas on full blast. NEED HELP!
