Something new for my kitties

Here's what I started last night for my kitties. They love to curl up in the window. Made with Lion Brand 'Fettuccine' yarn.

Just something merry I'm working on

Here are my crocheted christmas balls (ornaments) that I'm going to be selling at the Made by Hand show in November (see my event section) and when the season changes to cooler weather I will be selling them on my etsy shop.

The start of something snuggly...

I'm starting a little boy's blanket using Bernat Jr Jacquards. Incredibly soft and self patterns. Can't wait to finish it.

Gigantic Granny Blanket

Here's a pic of another project thing. It's a gigantic granny square blanket. I used 2 strands of Bernat chunky and is about 13" wide. It should be done in another month or so.

New prototype of christmas decoration

I've started working on some prototype ornaments for my christmas tree. We just bought our first house and will have a christmas tree for the first time. Our last place was too small to have one.

I used Moda Dea self striping yarn to create these beauties. For the mini mini hat I plan to create about 8 or so in different colours to create a nice garland.

Latest scarf

This is a recreation of one of my most popular scarves I've ever made. I used a more expensive yarn this time because the 'Wendy' yarn I used in the original was discontinued. The yarn is 'Taos' by Tahki Stacy Charles Inc. Made in Italy it is 95% wool and 5% Acrylic.

The new yarn has more colour variations than the original and I think it turned out beautifully. I think this will be on etsy soon...!

I'm working on publishing the pattern soon to share with everyone.

New logos

I finally had some time to create a whole new look for my thing 'just the thing'. I found this great designer Monique Chvatal from whom I bought the owls and house from. I created mini business cards from MOO which came yesterday and they are great.

Etsy shop icon and banner
I designed the scenery and added a crocheted flower to the owl. The reason why I designed the banner this way is so I can change the scene to match the season.

Baby Blankets in progress

Well, my husband and I bought our first house and so I haven't had time to blog or craft. The housing market is crazy in Toronto. We started bidding on houses in January and closed on the 9th house we bid on in April. It was very exhausting, especially lugging a baby to 4-5 showings a week.
I haven't even taken my yarn out of the boxes yet. But here are some of my latest projects that I was working on before the move.
Baby afghan made with self-striping yarn. When made using a granny square the pattern comes out quite different.
I bought some clearance cotton yarn from Michael's and I'm creating a striped stroller blanket.
Made with washable wool this is another stroller blanket.
