In preparation of the 2012 One-A-Week challenge, I've been making several items and hope to post a few over the next few days and then a few more in the coming weeks. Does that mean that I'm cheating at my own challenge? sheesh, off to a great start... :)

I hope the holidays have been a time of cheer and warmth for everyone! This year, I didn't gift-craft very much and it felt strange and of course- much less creative. Where I hope that the gifts we gave were enjoyed, I they were less intimate/meaningful. here's to next year!

100% cowl circle scarf

just posted this item in the shop today, along with several others. It feels super great to be caught up (for the most part) with taking photos and getting things posted!!!

I love working with 100% cotton yarn and after making one of these for my cousin, who wears it a lot, I thought I should make some more! Maybe she could be my model! =) What's great about this stitch is that the cowl can be reshaped- pull it in either direction and it can become tall and thin for a hood or short and wide for a longer drape in the cowl.

I'm relatively new to the blogosphere, I'm just plain slow on the uptake... I don't quite have the hang of what to post...

But, I'm inspired!!

After a two week vacation from crafting after the EtsyRain show in Seattle, I'm back at it. I've listed a few new items in our shop:

Also, I started up a new team!
One-A-Week is a year long challenge where etsy crafters make (at least) one item each week and list the item in their shop. The goal is that this is something that would help refine my work over the next year as well as possibly building my buisness!

So, I'll try to post many of those weekly items on this blog as well.

You ready to get get fancy?? weeeeeeeeeeee!

Shop local! Shop Handmade!

For those of you how are local to the Seattle area- come check out the EtsyRain Winter Show taking place the weekend after Thanksgiving (Nov 26 and 27) at the Intiman Theater! We're trying to provide a shopping alternative to all the big door buster sales and with over 50 vendors there will be lots of great shopping to do!

I'll be there, pedalling my wares!
