First custom order!

Finally done!!


Well, first custom thing MADE (its for a trade actually). She made me a few pairs of wooden earrings, and I made this beautiful blue shrug. I am almost a little sad to part with it, I had to totally re-do the collar because it was too small, but other than that it went pretty quickly.


I found the lace pattern online, and tried to figure out the best way to turn it into a shoulder shrug. I had never made a shrug before! I think it turn out really well considering, and unfortunately I have no idea where the yarn is from (I wish I had some more so I could make something for myself!!). I was given it as a gift, and only know its 100% wool, and so beautiful. There are many shades of blue, and it looks like a wave of the sea.

I told Felix it he was going to be famous, but he seems unimpressed

ITS BEEN SO LONG! (A picture review)

Hello Everyone, it has been so long since I was on here. A lot has happened. I finished up my school year, and am now working.

But before that... I graduated from Sarah Lawrence! A fantastic four year, I will miss it.

My mom and dad were there:

I wore a beautiful dress I got from a fellow Etsian :)

I took some beautiful pictures of my yarn, this is my favorite.

I will be doing a craft fair in mid July (ALL YOU PHILLY PEOPLE, COME!!)

Ive been knitting like a mad woman... roses to put on headbands, squids, cell phone cases, toy octopuses, a stegosaurus, slippers, socks, baby clothes....

Can't wait to have more pictures to put up here!
