Cure for a Cold Neck

One thing is for sure, my neck won't be cold this winter. I can't seem to knit anything but neck attire right now! This is the latest in my growing collection.

I used 100% wool Taos yarn from Crystal Palace. The colors are so vibrant and fantastic. The pattern is called Mustard and it can be found on Ravelry for free! This would be great for a last minute gift because it takes less than a skein of yarn and knits up in half a day.


It's also a nice project for showcasing a favorite button. I picked up this little gem at my local yarn shop, the Fiber Gallery. The color matches the green hues in the cowl perfectly.

Angry Little Chicken

I recently purchased the book Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec. It's filled with quick and adorable projects. This is the first one I've knit up but there are many more itty bitty knits in my near future!

His eyes make him look a little angry but he's really quite friendly.

Lucha Libre Felt Embroidery

I've been organizing another round of the Hoopla swap over on Craftster. As usual, the swap is filled with some uber talentented stitchers. The work that's pouring into the gallery is just amazing!

Here's my humble contribution. My partner likes Dia De Los Muertos and Lucha Libre themes. I was particularly inspired by the vibrant colors and glam designs of the wrestling masks so that's the direction I went!

I used the usual supplies for this; linen fabric, fancy felt, DMC thread and my alphabet stamps.

Anticipating Autumn

I'm one of those weird life-long Seattleites that starts craving cool grey weather after a month and a half of summer sunshine. It's that time of year when I'm ready for the the leaves to change and our misty cloud cover to return. I've already started crafting and shopping in anticipation for fall!

I made this collared cowl from my favorite yarn, malibrigo chunky! It's warm and soft and the colors are divine!

Modelling my new cowl, is my new pair of Frye boots. I can't wait until the temperature drops enough for me to wear these.

Bring on the rain!! I'm prepared.
