A Merit Badge

I have always had a thing for pinback buttons, brooches & badges. I love them huge, I love them tiny, I love them kitschy, I love them silly I love them sweet. Some I don’t love at all, but still keep them, how can you throw away something so useful!

Here is a super project to put those old pinback buttons to a good new use while show your love of knitting. I have yarns in my stash I have put off using for a project, because I love the color or feel of them so much, I can’t bear to see them gone (you know how it is) now I can always have a little wearable swatch of that irreplaceable/extinct yarn. 

It’s also a perfect use for those little left over scraps or small sample balls. I can’t stop making these. They are seriously quick, done in a snap and have just enough quirk to be cool!

I was never a girl scout. I really tried to be, really I did. Well sort of, I  went to 1 meeting and that was it, but I remember the little neck ties and being envious of my sis who had the uniform (knee-highs and all) and the sash filled with those lovely, lovely merit badges. 

If you’d like to have a go at making your own badges, my merit badge pattern is available for free on Ravelry HERE. I hope you love it!

Want to use my sweet little owl chart on yours, you can get it right HERE.

You can find all of my current designs on Ravelry.

(p.s. any of my charts will fit perfectly on a merit badge)

busy…um yeah!

Busy setting up shop & doing a little designing. I have always loved sorting out the fine details, making it perfect and finding simplicity & beauty in a complex idea.

Currently I have been working on the beekeepers quilt a simple but challenging knit project, the idea is simple, knit individual little honeycomb hexagons, stuff them with some fluff and join them in one massive blob of awesome, the challenge, keeping my enthusiasm. I rarely do long-term projects, I tend to get distracted, jump projects, lose interest and then feel guilty about all of the above. So this is where I’ve been getting inventive, designing some sweet little charts to put onto my knit honeycombs, keeping my humor & attention operational. 

You can download my free charts from Ravelry HERE. The download is just the PDF charts, what you put them on is totally up to you, perfect for duplicate stitch, fiar-isle, cross stitch, etc.
