Hello everyone! Fall is just around the corner here and school for my little guys starts in just a few days .. how the year has flown by. Unfortunately, I've had quite a few surgeries this year so I haven't been able to spend much time in the studio .. but it looks like those are all finally behind me (yeah!) and I am ready to get back into the swing of things for fall.
First off, there's a new pattern available: Peacock Earrings. These are a really easy beginner crochet lace pattern. They are very lightweight to wear, look fabulous on everyone, and only take an afternoon to make. The pattern includes finishing instructions and the exact yarn I used in the photo if you want to duplicate the color scheme. The pattern is over at my Etsy shop. If you haven't been to Etsy lately, the shops there have all had a face lift and have a new, more modern look. Check it out.
Here's me wearing my pair :) My son is quite the budding photographer and took this picture. He's only 9, but has such a natural eye for setting up a great shot!
As most of you know, I'm not just an artist, but a complete geek girl too :) I forget how, but I ran across these fabulous geeky science lab cookie cutters. Oh yes, I want some. I do, I do!!
Also .. I found this great binary scarf knitting pattern:
You can include any phrase or sentence you want to knitted into the scarf, secretly encoded in binary. How cool is that?
Oh, and I did finish my new winter scarf made out of that amazing Mochi yarn I showed you in this post. I'm blocking it now and will take a pic as soon as it is dry and ready to be worn. It really turned out beautifully and I can't wait to show you!
