Here is the hat I was working on. I have been meaning to post a photo for a while. It was going to be for myself but halfway through I decided I wanted a darker color. Trading the hat for a new printer thanks to a friend. 

Starting the first cowl for the “new line” for the shop tonight. I’m diggin’ it.

Finished a hat last night. Fastest one I have ever knit, took about 3 hours total. WIN.

I am far too lazy to find the right lighting - just wanted to share that I just was over thinking the hat pattern. All that is left are the muzzle, eyes, and ears! 
So happy I got my shit together, the next one should knit up fairly quickly.

ONE MONKEY ARM DOWN!

One more arm and then the actual hat begins!

Doesn’t look like much yet. Picked up some 7’s yesterday so I can get the cowl collar started. Then it is the fun task of seaming and weaving in edges. 

Then I get to make another one!

My second “Big Bad Baby Blanket” is finished, well almost. It needs some blocking which will be done tomorrow. This time around it felt like forever.
I am hoping that my friend/tattoo artist and his wife like the color. The brand of yarn I picked for this project doesn’t come in a large variety of colors and I don’t like using obvious baby colors. Since fall is coming this dark grey just jumped out at me and made me feel cozy. 
It is knit with Caron Simply Soft in charcoal. I usually don’t care for this yarn but when it comes to baby knits, it is washable and if it stretches out from use it will shrink back to size when it is washed. Washable is super important! If I make another one I am going to look into using a different yarn, maybe from KnitPicks or something. 


On to the next project!

Waiting for purse handles from Hong Kong - taking forever! SO large purses are on hold for the moment. I am working on a little pouch/accessory bag to keep me busy while I am waiting. I like how it is turning out but I think my gauge is a little tighter than it should be. Hopefully the finished product turns out. 
I have a long list of project ideas I want to try out for my esty shop - so I am going to be a pretty busy girl this summer. I hope I can make a few more sales when I put some summery things up. 
Back to the needles and How I Met Your Mother. (just started this a few days ago on netflix - I was missing out!)

(Also, dog feet are cute).

Working on a stock pile of purses for my shop. I’m hoping to get at least 10 -15 purses with different patterns written up and knit before I do the lining, hardware, ect. That way I won’t be just listing one at a time. I only have scarves listed right now, so I need to get busy! I’m hoping that I can really focus on accessories that are used year round vs. just winter accessories. 

I have so many ideas in my head and I hope that within a year I will be able to have all of my ideas for products on the shop. 

First photo : zigzag purple purse with black leather straps ( Thanks to Radcliffe Strap Works on Etsy)

Second photo : Cabled purse that will eventually have one longer strap (for cross body - possible). It will also have a fold over flap and button closure. 

I haven’t been posting that much and this is why! Now it’s time to go back to work!
