now what do i do with it?

Update: I still don’t know what I’m going to do with this little bit of love, but it’s featured in the Valentine’s Day Roundup on One Pretty Thing. Still looking for a Valentine’s Day craft? How ’bout some cross stitch action. I stitched this up on 22 count Aida, so it’s tiny – about two… Continue reading now what do i do with it?

not all ladybugs are ladies…

This is Frank. He’s the followup to Cealinn’s flower pincushion bracelet and my entry in the Sew, Mama, Sew! scrap buster contest. Frank is a quick and fun sewing project that can easily be entirely hand sewn. There are a few little seams that you can zip up on a machine, but it’s a super tiny… Continue reading not all ladybugs are ladies…

Garter Yoke Baby Cardi

I started this little guy on August 29 and finished it on September 9. So why did it take more than 2 months to post about it? Because I was too lazy to type up the 2 page pattern. Anyhoo. Here it is, with plenty of time until Chrismas. It’s a  simple little cardi with… Continue reading Garter Yoke Baby Cardi

matching mitts

The Norwegian Sweet Baby Cap was so cute, it needed some matching mitts. These teensy little things work up in no time in the round with self-striping fingering weight yarn. Using US2.5 dpns (or circs if you’re a magic looper or 2 on 2 circs kind of knitter), the gague is 7sts/inch in stockinette. Here’s… Continue reading matching mitts
