My friend Dana at @bluedaffodilcrafts is doing #50creations2018 and I thought it would be fun to join her... And that’s when I realized I just finished my 24th creation for the year so far. 😳 I think I may have to up my number by a hundred or so. 😂 Say... #200creations2018 ? 😂
So... clearly I fibbed. I did *not* get a shop update done yesterday. 😬 The day included a trip to the ER (everyone is ok!) which was clearly not what I was expecting. And now that it’s Tuesday, it’s not likely I’ll get it posted until Friday. So let’s just say that: Shop Update Friday Jan 19th!! Featuring a bunch of Bridger Beanies (formally known as The Chunky Ones😄) as well as faux fur pom poms available for the first time! 😁😁 •
Pattern: The Bridger Beanie (by me!)
Yarn: Big Twist Natural Blend from @joann_stores

New week, new tutorial. #happytuesdayeveryone
Today, I brought something simple but yet essential. How to weave in ends from the edges and also from the middle of a project when you add a new skien of yarn. I use the same way for both crochet and knitted projects. I think it's the best way from my personal opinion to hide your ends inbetween stitches. There's no trick to it. You just have to change the directions of where your darning needle is going, stretch the material to adjust the tension and then cut the yarn!
If you have another technique, don't hesitate to share, I would love to learn it!! Happy knitting! 😊
House things are done for now.
Time to settle into this beauty for a little coffee and crochet while I try to commit to that gray sample on the wall... (My only "work" day this week... ☹) Loving today's colors and the light in our place right now!
these are a few of my favorite things 🎶 .
Just a few more edits to make to my first pattern for the #goodlooks beanie (the purple one in the right) and then it’s ready for you! I really really loved putting this pattern together, turns out - I CAN DO IT ! and with the help of this community and amazing feedback from testers @fibermeup and @caseyrclements it’s almost ready for you ! .
In the meantime, go get your faux fur poms or ready to ship items from the shop (like this mustard one —with an interchangeable Pom 💁🏼♀️ and pattern from @the.hook.nook) ➰

After many frogs, many reknits, and a whole lotta math, my raglan is finally done! I was so excited I had to snap some pictures last night before I blocked it! Forgive my stringy hair and let's celebrate!
Now I'll be working on the pattern write up so you can make one of your own! I also need to think of a name, right now I'm just calling it the Sweatershirt Sweater 😂😂... maybe that's OK? What do you think?
