Felted Fun

I am getting on the felting train entirely too late, but it is fun!!!

I think this one is soo fun. I used Patons yarn in multi color. I love the wya that it made verticla stripes! IN my opinion, patons yarn felts must faster than Cascade 220. With Patons I only need to run through cycle once, with Cascade 220 I usually have to do it twice. But Cascade 220 has such a variety of fun colors! (sorry about horrible grammar)

I just did this one today. Again made out of Patons Yarn.

If you like these bowls you can find them at http://www.harddaysknit.etsy.com

If your a crocheter and knitter, you should most definitedly experiment making these (if you haven’t already). They are so fun and useful!

I love looking at that little link that says “1 sale”. Did I mention I’m excited?! Hopefully this will be the first of many! Time to celebrate!

Pop of Color

knitting-0011

Started this rippled blanket a couple days ago. My mom saw and she instantly wanted it. So this is going to her. I’m using leftover Red Heart acrylic yarn. I normally don’t use acrylic, but I don’t mind when it is for a blanket. This thig is massive. I chained something like 156.

I’m setting up a new etsy shop where I’m going to sell dish cloths. I started crocheting these and they are very addictive. It takes me about half an hour to finish a large one. It is so relaxing! I love the bright colors of cotton that they are selling now. Summer colors!

I bought this journal a couple of days ago. I dedicated it to knitting and I am addicted to it!. I carry it around with me and jot notes, ideas, designs, and info about projects in it.

knitting-021

This comes especially in handy when I am laying in bed and knitting ideas creep into my head. I can jot them down and I’m able to fall asleep. I have been falling asleep faster and I actually remember my ideas from last night!

I am also putting pics and information of projects in here. It’s like Ravelry in a notebook. I’m doing this so when I become older (hopefully a knitting prodigy by then LOL) I’ll have this notebook because I don’t know if Ravelry will still be here in 40 years. Probably there will be something better and more high tech than the computer. So  I want something like Ravelry that I know will last forever!

These are really fun. I think that all knitters should get one. It really does change the way you knit. Just get a cheap (but cute) journal at Target, and fill it up wit everything knitting!

knitting-022 I bought “Super Stitches Knitting” by Karen Hemingway yesterday. It is a great reference book with beautiful pictures. Each stitch is knitted out of bright color yarn and the stitches are organized beautifully. I already have post it stickies all over it.

Bright coors make me soo HAPPY!!!!

Pretty in Pink Sweater

Finished another sweater for my etsy shop! I knit this out of leftover Cascade 220.  These are really fun to knit! IF you get a chance PLEASE check out my store. I don’t want to be one of those people who have to plug their sites every 5 seconds, but it you have the money and love your dog, please buy a sweater (it would help me out a bunches). The site is tulip and willow (the link is on the side). I’m planning on adding sweaters that are completely customizable. You can choose size (up to a medium). color of sweater, if you want embroidery or applique, and color of applique or embroidery. So keep a look out for that.  I’m hoping it will bring in more business and it will let buyers be involved and have fun. Now that we got that out of the way…

Here are some pics of the sweater. I’m gonna try to get some more pics later. Sophie was not in the picture taking mood and it started to rain!

In case any one is wondering, the bird applique is made out of Amy Butler fabric.  I think her fabric is so chic and cute.  LOVE it!
