Scrap’s & Cap’s


Scrappy hat fresh off the needles. 

This time I used the “Jackson’s Hat” From Evie Wonder Pants on Hyena cart.  The pattern offers many different brims and hat finishing styles of which I chose the Stock Cap.  I have bags of scraps that need to be used & thought this was a perfect project.  This hat will fit youth to adult.

The pattern offers numerous brim options and is multi sized for preemie growth.


On the needles now are custom longies for Sara using Mosaic Moons “Charlie”

It’s a rainy dreary day out and the bright colors sure help chase the blah”s away

Customs in progress, Mama update’s!

A hooded Cardi in progress using handspun from Little Monkey’s Stitch & Spin.  Wow, is it nice! Often handspun is overspun and kinks up while knitting with it…this is smooth and wonderful to work with.  The sweater is knitting up quickly as I want to knit to the next color change!WIPs 004

Also on the needles are longies for Sara.  Using Mosaic Moon Charlie” These longies are a fun knit as the colors are so bold they just pop !WIPs 006Friday I’ll be stocking again with Jenny on Little Trunks Knits,  I’ll have a few Christmas items & if your looking for overalls you need to see the Bayside Britches she’s stocking

Custom Honeysuckle Set in the mail

I just completed knitting the

Honeysuckle Top/Dress/Tunic from EviePants

& what a sweet pattern!

Some tops can become tedious after a knitting a few times but, this pattern has enough stitch changes to keep you on your toes.  I’d not knit a lateral braid before so it was a learning experience for me also.

And accented with custom buttons from Ayarina’s Button Shop

Also ready for the mail “Peace Please Longies”

Hand knit with “Peace fleece”. 

baby watch and Rainbow Peace 007

It often feels like a brillo pad when you first start knitting with it but softens as its handled.  When laundered it blooms and after a few washes will become cottony soft and wears like cast iron….sturdy enough for active toddlers


A few more customs are in the works and at least 2 should be completed this week.

Progress photos up tomorrow.

Have a great evening

Peace Please! Stocking to Etsy Katidids

“Peace Please” Longies stocked to the Katidids Etsy Shop .

Ahh, the durability of peace fleece! Nice and sturdy longies  that hold up to active crawlers and toddlers.  The durability of peace fleece some call nearly bullet proof which, makes them a must have for night time use or a heavy wetter.

These longies have a larger hip to accommodate the added night time fluff.

Peace Please Longies 003

Hand-dyed by me using wine, periwinkle & grey with touches of blue.

Peace Please Longies 002

After I listed these in the shop I  was checking out one of my favorite shops My Little Pitterpats and look what I found!

Funky little Kicks

   These handmade shoe’s are so stinkin cute & a perfect match for these longies! 

I think she has shoes that would match ANY outfit!

Be sure to pop in and take a look.


Finishing a few customs today and will have photo’s up tomorrow!

Have a great weekend

Stocking on Little Trunks Knits on Hyena Cart!


Moving into the new room was more of an ordeal (but a good one) than I’d anticipated!  I couldn’t believe how many finished knits I found in bins and bags.  I get on a knitting roll between customs and set them aside to photo & list…….  then forget about them!  It may have a bit to do with the fact creating listings drives me crazy.

This week I pulled a few things out and listed them with “Little Trunks Knits” on Hyena cart.

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Trick or Treat!
