Peruvian Disco Revisited

Okay, so I frogged her and started over again with smaller needles. Here is the finished product. Adding the ruffles at the ends really made her! I love it even more than I thought I would and I am not so sure that I want to part with it...

Peruvian Disco

I was so excited about pairing these two yarns together. The pictures just don't do this scarf any justice. I am about halfway done with a very simple and fun project; probably my first scarf in two years! I am using lavender Cascade Luna and Tilli Tomas Disco Lights in natural w/lime sequins.

My First Pattern

I came up with this little Jo cap over the weekend. As it is a simple design that can be completed by a beginner-intermediate, I decided to post it to my shop at the fantastic price of only $1.50! Check her out!

My New Favorite Sweater

A top-down seamless raglan with one button, elbow-length sleeves and cropped length.

I purchased this gorgeous Noro Taiyo at one of my favorite yarn stores (Grafton). My plan was to make a simple, neutral, everyday, throw-on cropped cardigan that I could wear during and after pregnancy and in almost any season. Here is the final result, and I am so pleased with it!

New Hats, Patterns!

So I have been meaning to write out some of my patterns for sale as download-able PDFs for some time now. I am going to start this week. And what better way to debut my patterns but with my newest (and most favorite so far) design: Zoe. She is an unfelted version of Chloe.

This particular Zoe was knit with pima cotton, bamboo, wool and nylon. The bamboo yarn has such a fantastic sheen to it, the flecks of copper, black and plum really jump out when it moves in the light.

Zoe and pattern coming to my shop soon (most likely next weekend).

Best Purse/Wallet/Wristlet EVER!!!

I don't even remember how I stumbled upon this thing...somehow searching for travel cribs brought me to the Ju Ju Be diaper bags website?!

This is the Ju Ju Be Be Mine. I just love this thing! My Be Mine contains: my DL, my sellers permit, CC's, loyalty cards, gift certificates, cash and change, my cell, two lip glosses, the pen that comes with, and a business card case. I still have room for more...

In addition, the Be Mine comes with a longer strap should you prefer to wear it over your shoulder or across your body. Also, it has an outer spot to clip your keys (although mine still fit nicely inside in a pinch)....
