Happy Easter!

Thank goodness for friends in crafty places...

Calling All Sports Fans!!!

It doesn't matter to me who you root for.
In our house, we're Cubs Fans, but I'll make any team I can manage a logo for.

While I am proud of this hat, I will not make another one.

Starting 2014 with a BANG!

After taking a nice break around the holidays, I was welcomed into 2014 with MANY projects!

Here are a few photos of what I've started the year off with...

Chicago Blackhawks

I think this hat is one of my proudest moments...Blackhawks Earflap Hat with Pom Pom.
Although I cannot take credit for the actual design (I used a combination of photographs of hats others were selling), I did not have a pattern to work from and had to make everything up myself.





My cousin had me make her a pair of slippers.  I'm highly considering making myself a pair...when I have the time.

Slippers shown are Women's Size 6.5 in Black
She also had me make a pair for her boyfriend!!

Slippers shown are Men's Size 8 in Maroon

Specialty Items

To follow along on Christmas 2012, my mom requested some towel toppers and a table runner.  Both entered new territories for me. (Pattern locations to be posted later.)

Blue Towel Topper

Ivory Sparkle Table Runner
With all of the extra yarn I had left over from the infamous Christmas 2012, I took a shot at making some baby booties from a pattern I found here.  Although cute, not every baby agrees to keep them on...this was my daughter.

After going public with my skills, my dad requested some specialty items as well for around the house.
