I saw this while chillin’ on Pinterest and I thought “What a true and clever t-shirt! I’ma buy one!” It wasn’t until I went to check out, all set to pay a reasonable $21.95 on Teespring.com that it hits me in the face. The shirt that hails to the awesomeness that is crochet portrays a set of knitting needles!!!! EPIC FAIL! I had to laugh and did I ever! I’ll be saving my money on this one for now, thank you.
These make having a healthy snack much more awesome! Love the detail on these!
I’m usually not one for scarves but this one is bigger on the inside! Free pattern from Knitty. Why oh why did I ever stop learning how to knit?!
I peed I just laughed so hard! This is the cutest most original baby hat I’ve seen in a long time! You can bet your sweet patootie I’ll be trying this one out!
Free pattern on Googiemomma.blogspot.com! How nice is that?
ARGH! This is the 3rd attempt with a Princess Leia hat which appears easy enough but there are a few things that came up I have to grouse about.
The buns. The damn dirty buns.
First, it takes forever to get the thickness of yarn you need to make the braids stand out enough. I finally worked out a system that doesn’t take too long to get the length and amount I need (PS: It takes a LOT of yarn) but how do you keep them together without tying huge, ugly, giant knots in the end???
The solution was sooooo f-ing obvious. No knots required. Just tie the same colored string around the end and add a dot of Elmers Super Hold Glue so it hold steady. NO ONE TELLS YOU THIS ONLINE THOUGH! NO ONE!
Seriously could have saved myself massive tears on that fiasco. Nut hey, I did it with no pattern. Just winging it off pics I’ve seen. Truthfully you don’t really need a pattern. It’s a beanie with buns…but the buns…that’s where they get ya.
