Completed Custom Ordered Totebag


I finally finished one of my custom orders for a friend. I absolutely love making this granny square totebag, it’s very easy and can be made in a variety of different colors. I added a burgundy-colored lining to this one, I think it adds a warmth with the cream.  I also added a little change purse as a gift 😀

If you’d like one custom made, you can send me a message in my shop at https://www.zibbet.com/suestitches with your color preferences. Price is $40.00 plus $6.00 shipping and handling in the U.S. (if you are outside of the U.S., please state which country and I will advise the shipping cost).

Enjoy your weekend and happy crafting..

To Move Beyond My Comfort Zone — Slipped Stitches’s Weblog


This is absolutely breathtaking! I’m hoping to one day knit a shawl like this!

I say this, not to antagonize the knitting-gods-that-be, but my current lace shawl project is not as masochistic as it could be and I am instead constantly thinking about undertaking a real Shetland Shawl project. Hence the next debacle project on my needles will be the Cameron Shawl by Susan Miller created on US 3 […]

It’s Been Awhile!


HUGE-price-reduction

Hi everyone!  Sorry for my very long absence here, I guess life got in the way!  Anyway, I’m glad to be back and hopefully will be posting more often!   Right now, there are reductions on all items in my shop!  Stop over and take a look, there aren’t many items listed at the moment, but with school approaching, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something for a returning student, or purchase something nice for yourself!

Click here to visit my new and improved shop; there have been some changes to the Zibbet website since I’ve been here last:  https://suestitches.zibbet.com/shop

Have a great week!

Repurpose socks, stockings & sweaters to make these snowman crafts


Had to reblog this, it’s just so darn cute!!!

Crafts 'n Coffee

How’s the winter weather where you are? I live in the land of snow, in the city that Forbes has declared the snowiest in the country. But not this year. Every time it snows, my daughter gets so excited, only to have her heart broken when it melts the next day. So, let’s put away the hats and mittens, get out the glue gun, and craft a snowman! Better yet, these snowmen are made with repurposed socks, stockings and sweaters. To help you get started, I’m also giving away a six-pack of 4” balls of STYROFOAM Brand Foam.

First up, the Sweater Snowman, which Kathleen George fashioned from a sweater. If you don’t have one handy, check out a second-hand store.

To make a Sweater Snowman, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Foam: one each 4”, 5” and 6” balls
  • Cream or white sweater
  • Buttons: ½” with shank for…

The Sock Pattern Mystery Solved!


I believe everyone in the knitting world has seen the photo of these cabled socks somewhere, Google, Pinterest, and of course crafty blogs (including mine), but the question that has come up a few times is, “where’s the pattern”? Well, after an exhaustive search to satisfy my own curiosity, I finally found it on Etsy!  (Click on the photo for the link) Funny that the seller lives only 20 minutes away from me 🙂

You might want to check out this page on Pinterest also, they have such beautiful posts of other knit socks and slippers that you may be interested in making! http://www.pinterest.com/starrgrams/knitting-stuff-socks-slippers/
