Itty Bitty Cuteness

How cute are these? They're so teeny tiny. Made with 100% cotton. I made the slipper a double thickness. They're just so sweet.

Just off the Hook

Here are a few things I've recently finished.

These two hats where shipped off this afternoon. I didn't have a lot of time to stage the photography since I was in a race with the mail pick up, but it gives a good idea of what they're like.

And another lip balm cozy I've recently listed. I just picked up a bunch more colours to make these and I'm almost done a one that is black on the bottom and red on top.


Check it out.
It's a bit to big for my model, but it gives you a general idea of how it fits.

Right now it just points to my etsy store. But one day I may have my own website, possibly with a shopping cart for my Canadian friends? Who knows what can become of it. But it's all very exciting.

I also finished a wicked earflap hat. Pink and Brown. Nice big chunky stripes. It turned out amazing. I still have to take a picture, but I'm working on a tight deadline. Just wanted to share my exciting domain name news.

Getting Ready for Winter

I've been working on some earflap hats for winter.

The first is one I made for my son. It took a few tries to get things right but I think it works. I'm pretty sure I"ll be making these for my table and Etsy store soon. It's made from 100% cotton and for extra warmth I crocheted it with 2 strands.

The second one is a ski hat for an adult woman. It's not completed yet, I still have to darn in all the ends and add little braided strings coming down from the earflaps. It's made from Ultra Alpaca (50% Alpaca, 50% Wool) and is Super Soft. I'm having a hard time coming to terms with giving this one up.

And a quick shop of the latest lip balm cozies I listed on Etsy

Finished Projects

It feels so great to finish projects and recently I've finished a few.

Yesterday I made some washcloths. I had made another set before, but never took a picture of the first set. The first set was made using variegated yarn of lime green & white. This is the 2nd set I made.

I was also asked if I could make my flower power coasters in some retro colours. This project was very exciting because I was finally able to source some brown cotton!!! Something that I've been looking for for awhile now but wasn't having any luck with.

Last, but not least, I finished the lip balm cozy order. Again, another job that I am thrilled with the end results. It may be hard to see in the pictures, but some of them are meant to look like cupcakes and even have sprinkles on them. How cute are there?
