Cuffed Boots

Christmas crochet projects are now underway!  I have completed my first pair of Button-Cuff Boots by Darla Sims... except for the buttons. I'm on a search for something a little bit unique.

This was a fun pattern to make up - and yes, the two boots are indeed the same size and shape! The pattern is made up with two strands of yarn and used just the better part of two skeins of Mary Maxim Best Value worsted. Quick little project to whip up - now to get some puff paint on the soles to make them anti-slip.

Crocheted Wristers

We crafty types are great at making things but we give most of it away. This weekend I worked on a project for me. I crocheted a pair of wristers using sock-weight yarn using this Lion Brand pattern.

They are thin and comfortable and fit well. They are made with a single crochet stitch in either front or back loops, creating a nice little pattern and a decent amount of stretch.

Okay so you know you've ignored your blog when you take a look and see a winter background in August. My last post was in January. Sad, that. Time to get it in gear so I can start posting some of the things I've made this year. I've gone back to quilting since I made the memory quilt for my friend Kari, and I've got a couple things to show off. Stay tuned...

chalkboard labels

I made a couple sets of these for Christmas gifts and they were a big hit. Such a big hit that I've purchased a large roll of chalkboard vinyl and will be making up sets to sell. As you can see, they worked great on these IKEA Burken jars.

Please stay tuned, these should be available in a couple weeks. Set of 12 - 2"x3" labels - $5.00. Other sizes and shapes to follow!
