Want to wish all of my lovely followers a safe, happy & healthy New Year!
There is nothing new about my NYE as I plan to party as I normally do. At home in my sweats, order some Chinese take out & knit something awesome.

*New design
Ruffles-n-Puffs crochet cowl for kids
Measures approx.5×20″
Designed to fit children between the ages of 3-10. Wear responsibly & with caution on the littles as anything around the neck can indeed become a choking hazard.
Worked in soft suede mustard cotton & drapes beautifully.
This lovely little cowl will be available for purchase via my Etsy shop within the next couple of days….hopefully! Fingers crossed! Life is hectic at the moment!

I plan to jot down the pattern to share here on my blog but I just need to find the time to do that! Keep your eyes on this blog for the free pattern! Coming soon…….

Working on a few cotton crochet lace doilies that will be available for purchase via my Etsy shop soon 🙂

Approximately 25 inch cotton lace Shades of Grey. Love how this turned out! It’s soft & has a lovely drape. Can be lightly starched but I love the look & feel of this as is.

Surely I am not the only crazy crafter working round the clock in attempts to get orders out before holidays creep up?! When I finally close my eyes at the end of the day I see blurry remnants of crochet & knit designs floating behind my heavy lids. Life is good.

I have a plan in mind for these lace crochet snowflakes. Hopefully I manage to put it all together before Christmas :/ I’m just really grateful I can still see well enough to actually work these tiny steel hook thread designs.

This is perhaps one of my favorite lace scarfs ever! Still working on the trim & loving every little detail of this soft & beautiful design.

What crafts are you feverishly working on?

New lace detachable collar design in shimmery burnt orange thread. I love everything about this.

Normally I have find it difficult deciding if I actually love my designs & projects once they are complete. When family & friends compliment my work there is still a little voice inside me that says they are only saying that because they love me & don’t want to hurt my feelings.

Here’s an exception:

Lace crochet collar/neck wrap. 100% Egyptian cotton. Extremely soft & drapes just beautifully so that it can be worn as a collar, one long loop infinity scarf style or wrapped twice around to form a delicious pillow of Lacey softness around the neck. It’s beautiful & I love it! 🙂

I’ve mentioned in my last post how I’ve spent some time testing & preparing a few of my original Off The Hook crochet/knit designs that will eventually make their way into my shop.

Recently while out shopping I came across some pretty crochet baskets & as tempted as I was to purchase a few the price tag was a little too steep for my taste. Of course as soon as I arrived home I made my own version & actually love it even more than the ones in the store.

Ohmygosh I absolutely adore this free beginner knit pattern: Non-felted Slippers by Yuko Nakamura & have made several pair for family, friends & of course myself. I achieved various sizes by switching needle by a 1/2 – full size

While I’ve been away from the blogging world over the past several months I have managed to finish quite a few projects as well as grow in my craft….& life for that matter.
Its been a productive year for me but It is seriously so great to be back! I’m spending some time this morning enjoying my delicious homemade English muffin w/orange marmalade & steaming hot cuppa while catching up on all of my favorite blogs. There are so many wonderfully talented artists here….I am in awe of your beautiful work,words, incredible inspirations, talents and creations.

Here are a few quick (mostly ipad) snaps of just some of my yarn art from this past year.

I LOVE detachable crochet collars. Seriously it’s becoming a borderline obsession of mine. An OTHD original collar pattern worked up in colorful wool. Excuse me while I brag a moment…..I am quite proud of this design! It looks adorable on! It’s soft & comfy as well

My very first attempt at felting wool. Added a cute thread crochet doily embellishment. Kinda digging these soft-n-comfy slippers.
