• Lakeside Cover Up…. free pattern

    It’s official… summer is here to stay. It was in the 80s today and I can already tell I’m going to die this summer. It’s time to hit the lake for afternoons of swimming, snacking and lounging in the shade. I have teamed up with Michelle Ferguson over at Two Brothers Blankets and am her guest blogger for the month…

  • A bit of warmth (and a beaded bottle carrier)

    Wow, has it been a crazy month. I’ve got one kid who’s going through the college admission process and one who is just wrapping up homeschool co-op and the school year. I wanted to get this pattern out to you on Earth Day but that just wasn’t going to happen. I’m only four days late on it but that’s OK.…

  • Knitting Machines are all the rage right now

    If you’re a yarn crafter, you know that these circular knitting machines are very popular right now. I believe it all started when Kaytedid86 on Tik Tok shared her Tik Tok beanie. Everyone wanted one and those things almost doubled in price over a matter of two weeks. They went from like $60 up to over $100. If you were…

  • Christmas is coming…

    Does anyone else get this overwhelming feeling when you realize that Christmas is only 5 days away? I was definitely feeling the strain for about four weeks. I usually have my ducks in a row and everything done by Halloween but I didn’t even start my shopping until the second week of Nov. I just finished up buying presents on…

  • Happy Thanksgiving!

  • CJ Shell Cowl

    Fall is coming… And with fall comes the pumpkin spice, apple cider, sweaters, bonfires, ear warmers, boots and cowls. It’s my favorite time of the year. I’m a HUGE fan of fall and there is nothing better than pairing up a cowl and ear warmer set to match your outfit. I have been very busy the last several weeks with…

    Christmas will be here before you know it!  If you would like the printable ad-free version of this pattern, you can find it HERE. Did you know that we are well on our way into the holidays? Once school starts, it’s a snowball rolling downhill and there’s no way of stopping it. You’ll blink and Halloween will be over and…

  • Pamela Fingerless Gloves

    I’m sitting here on my back deck trying to figure out how to write this blog post and I can’t help but cry a bit as I type. Today is pattern release day for my Pamela Fingerless Gloves. If you guys remember, I wrote a pattern for the Pamela Scarf back in March. That was one of the hardest things…

  • Hat Not Hate.. an anti-bullying campaign

    I don’t know if you’ve heard or not but there’s this really neat campaign called Hat Not Hate. A bunch of us crafters are uniting and donating our time and blue hats to the cause. There’s even a great FB group that is run by a great group of creators that are dedicated to the cause. It’s awesome. I’m sure…
