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
