Since We Last "Talked"....

Hi friends,

I will be excited when I can blog regularly, but until then, I am stopping by to let you know what's been happening in the month of August:

  1. The Crochet Dude asked for permission to use my gray handbag (that he designed) on his Ravelry page! Who could say no to that?
  2. Organized my yarn stash and crafting tools. The yarn is organized by weight.
  3. Bought a yarn winder and a swift. Right now I'm just using the yarn winder and it is so fun to use. Great invention.
  4. Made a couple of beanie caps with some Moda Dea yarn I purchased on clearance at different times this summer. One is a wool/acrylic blend; the other is a wool/silk blend. Those will go in the shop a little later.
  5. Made a couple of cowls or neckwarmers. One matches the hat; the other is own it's own. Those also will go into the shop. (No pictures for these at this time. Keep checking back.)
  6. Found a hat that I made back in the early spring or late winter of 2009 and realized I never photographed it - maybe because it's super huge, so I am now calling it a rasta style hat, made especially for those with long dread locks. Otherwise, I'm sure this hat would not fit.
  7. Was introduced to a fabulous designer that has me in awe with her creations and use of color: Xenobia Bailey.

Have a great week ahead!


  1. You've been busy, my friend!

    How cool is that?! I'm still waiting for someone to ask me permission too but nobody does. Not even for a project that is the only one for that pattern! lol

    I need to follow your example. My stash is now camping on the floor (in plastic bags) and my tools... well, you know, I call my blog Cajón Desastre for some reason.

    And now you're making me want a yarn winder. You're a bad influence for my pocket. ;-)

  2. Alhana:

    About the Ravelry permission: I never even knew that was an option. I had just assumed some pictures were up there randomly.

    About the yarn winder: hee hee hee. Truthfully, I never thought not having one was a big deal, UNTIL I bought that sock yarn online and couldn't use it for my grandma's shawl. It was such a pain to try and wind. So I quit and ordered some tools. Otherwise, I would have kept winding by hand. :-)

  3. Glad to see you are crafting and organizing away...I check your blog and photostream all the time, hoping to see what you have done lately..take care. Hope school is going well!!

  4. I am crazy for a winder! I'll get one at some point... heheheh

    I need to organize my stash badly, but no time or energy lately...

    Hope you have an awesome Sunday!

  5. I didn't know it was an option from the designer either. I just thought you just had to go to the pattern page and add your own photo - I tried that several times but it didn't work! lol
