(Noro) fingerless gloves

Leave a Comment
Bring on the cold! I made these fingerless gloves more than a month ago and only just now posting. I've discovered (and splurged on) the lovely NORO brand yarn. This is Silk Garden #364 in Brown, Wine and Cream; it's part silk, mohair, wool, totally soft and lovely!

Summer is over (what!) and I totally missed it. One of my top four seasons has arrived, that's right, fall-winter-spring-and-summer are all my favorite! Around June time every year, it never fails, I get the crazy Christmas craving. I promise I can practically smell frosted cranberry and pine in my nostrils and go into sweet reverie when I think about the first soft snowfall. But it doesn't matter what time of year, I'm always busy creating my own kind of sunshine in our corner of Ohio:)

 We're in the last stages in flipping the blue house down our street; we have about a month left. It's turning out beautifully and has been a super-fun journey! When this project is complete, I have nearly the next whole year planned out, home projects and growing my own craft business. Yeah!

I made this crochet cutie for my niece Amelia - I hope she loves it! Find the pattern here.

 A small project I've just completed, luxurious exfoliating spa cloths. These will be available for purchase in 2015 with my cold process soaps - in sets and free with purchase.

Measuring at 9.5" x 9.5", these washcloths are 100% cotton and totally irresistible

I came across this lovely FREE pattern for a baby blanket inspired by the tv series "Call the Midwife." This pattern looked a little complex but once I got going, I was able to memorize it and then...I ended up making three of them! They would make dainty baby gifts but I would really like to keep these for future use:)

spring into summer

A little side project while we're flipping the summer house: a colorful baby-sized "Spring into Summer" blanket, a FREE pattern from Felted Button. I typically don't copy exact patterns, but this immediately caught my eye. I used the same yarn by Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in Candied.  100% Acrylic but feels like wool. This kind was everything I don't like in a yarn: pastels, a rainbow ombre, but I love how it turned out!! The transitional colors are the sweetest, the light green and oranges. I enjoyed watching the yarn color change as I worked this blanket :)
