Fell asleep next to my knitting project, woke up cuddling with my yarn ball.
Sneak peak at my completed chevron scarf ;D (Don’t mind the little yarn bits that had yet to be hidden).
Once I get it blocked, I’ll be putting up more pictures.
Chevron Baby Blanket
I’ve finally finished it! I had been dying to knit up my first blanket, and I had ended up choosing this adorable pattern that I found on Ravelry (or did I first see it on Pinterest..?) It took a few months because of school and work, but I managed to get it done and I’m in love with the finish piece! :)
I would certainly recommend this pattern, and I may even consider doing a full size blanket with it one day.
Joann’s craft store is doing Black Friday sales which means, while everyone else is off shopping for clothes and electronics, I’m gonna be fighting off grandmas for the best price on yarn.
Introducing my first for-sale item! I crocheted this hat out of some very squishy, soft yarn I found in a little hobby shop about 40 minutes away. It’s incredibly warm and stretchy and SLOUCHY! Yay for slouchy hats :) I also ended up crocheting a black one for my friend.
If you’re interested in buying this one, or one in a different color, please message me for pricing and details!
If you crochet, you can find the free pattern here.

I finished these adorable pair of gloves this evening, and I am over the moon with how beautifully they came out! They are so cozy and so cute. Perfect for the fall weather that will be approaching in just a few short months! The gloves are a gray color, with a red heart button. The size came out to about a women’s small (possibly small/medium). I used size 4 needles and DK yarn instead of worsted weight, because they were coming out too big at first.
If you’re interested in knitting your own pair, you can find the pattern here. Happy knitting!
I’m starting my very first sweater! (Well, vest, but still sweater). I’m only practicing right now, but I’m really loving the simplicity of the pattern. Also, the color is lovely, but if anyone has any suggestions for a nice color for a sweater (vest) then let me know! I’m open to pretty much anything.
Also, random fact about myself, back in high school I had a crush on this guy who used to wear sweater vests, and my sister would make fun of me, but I thought it was adorable and he looked mighty spiffy in them.
Today is payday, but for whatever reason we’re getting paid tomorrow instead. However, I still have to go out to the little country town that’s about 40 minutes from here for church tonight, and they have a small hobby shop that is the only place I can find a certain yarn. So I’m gonna be dipping into my savings a little bit, cause I’m not gonna go all the way back out there tomorrow.
But yarn shopping, guys. YES.
One of my current WIPs! I’m definitely planning on selling this blanket. It’s so pretty, and it will be perfect for a baby, toddler, or small child. :) I think it’ll work fine for either a boy or a girl. It’s actually turning out be a rather bigger blanket, which I don’t mind. I’m excited to do the border, too, which is probably going to be a cream color.
(The color of the blanket most closely matches the first picture. For some reason the lighting kept changing in each of these.)
After loads of time spent crocheting and knitting, I’ve finally decided I need a blog for it. I plan to use this to share my WIPs, finished products, and FOR SALE ITEMS! Yes, I’m going to start selling. :) I am so excited, and I’m just hoping I can manage to get the word out.
I plan to also use this blog for sharing little tips or helping out beginners.
I’m currently working on a few projects and planning to share them very soon! I’m even considering making some videos on those helpful tips and things I was talking about. I can use all the support I can get.
Also, if you’re a crochet/knitting blog, I’d love to follow you!
