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 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..

Friday Finds on Zibbet

I love “window shopping” through Zibbet.  There are so many talented artisans on the site and here are a few that I’ve recently fell in love with.

I absolutely love the amigurumi in Crochet Jungle‘s shop, these pears look so real!

So in love with this chunky infinity scarf in CroquisKnits shop!

I have a slight obsession with cameos, and this bangle in Spanky Luvs Vintage‘s shop!

Love this antique photo album with a hint of Victorian mysteriousness to it in Curiosities Cupboard‘s shop!


Here’s to a fantastic Friday and a crafty weekend!!!




One Busy Knitter

It’s hard to believe that I just started knitting a month ago.  I already have four projects going on at the same time, one is the Wine Country Cowl (a free pattern available through Tahki yarns).  I am using Red Heart Soft Yarn in Teal for this project and size 11 needles.  It’s working up so pretty and soft, so this was definitely a good choice of yarn to use!   The color was chosen by a guy I work with that asked me to make it for his mom for Christmas 🙂

The next project is the Strangling Vine Lace Scarf .  I thought for sure the pattern would be difficult, but not so!  It’s only a four row repeat and I have it memorized already.   I’m making one for myself using Red Heart soft yarn in berry and since this is a thicker yarn, it’s not coming out as lacy, but the pattern is still pretty and it’s so warm!   The other yarn I’m using is Patons Lace yarn with sequins and this yarn is absolute heaven to work with.  Since it’s a fine yarn (#2), this will take me a while to finish, but when it’s all said and done, this will be one to wear to holiday parties or any fancy gathering.

Last but not least is the Spectra Cowl, a free pattern on Red Heart’s website.  The yarn I’m using for this is exactly what’s shown on the cowl.  This pattern is so pretty, and again, very easy.  The yarn is a little fuzzy to work with though, but the beautiful colors in it make up for it 🙂

I think these projects will keep me busy for a while. Of course, I’ve found and printed other patterns I like, but a knitter can only get to so much in one day (unfortunately).

What projects are you working on?
