five things

—–(( No.1 Rebel Princess ))—–

The pattern is a “make your own princess” security blanket, but how could I make anything other than the only princess that comes to mind!

I worked this as a test for Briana and I posted the space bun and other adaptations on my Ravelry project page …it became a pretty popular variation, because there has been quite a few little Leia’s popping up in the pattern projects!
♥ I’m so glad you loved her ♥

Pattern: Pretty Princess Lovey by Briana Olsen.

—–(( No.2 Washing Dots ))—–

5 washers for the 2013 Annual Dishcloth Swap! The base for these came from a lacy baby hat pattern I was testing for Thomasina Cummings. I loved the look so much, I enlarged & rounded out the jasmine stitch pattern into a pretty 8” washcloth!

—–(( No.3 Nocturne Collar ))—–

Beautiful Tunisian crochet paired up with Misti Alpaca Lace, here are the pattern adjustments I used to create this romantic collar. (Finished size 20” x 4”)

♥ Lace wt yarn (0) and 4mm cable Tunisian hook. ♥ Subtracted 96 sts off the starting ch amount. ♥ Worked rows 1-7, then jumped to row 17 (continue on and complete all rows as written) topped off with a vintage flocked velvet ladybug. (so pretty ♥)

Pattern: Summer Suite Scarf by Yuliya Tkacheva.

—–(( No.4 Headbands ))—–

Mind the frizz (and the grey strands :) ..nothing says lazy warm days like a head full of wonderfully romantic flowers, helping tame my crazy summer fuzz!

Even Lex who wears a sweet bob cut, let me messy short bun and headband her hair! I am insanely jealous of her terrifically unfrizzy perfectly straight hair!

Pattern: Ultimate Headband Pack of Flowers and Lace by Two Girls Patterns.

Oh Pretty!

Storm brewing ..we enjoy the lukewarm spring evenings and beautiful cotton candy view from the cozy shelter of the porch.

I am lusty for the frosting texture, natural cotton always looks so doughy I LOVE IT! The free pattern is called Fluffy Meringue Blanket (how sweet & accurate!) I only worked the first 8 rounds to get a dishcloth size and it still turned out kinda big, right around 9”.
I took creative liberty on the last few rounds ♥

under + over + on

UNDER is for underpants ..yes I made a brief potholder! No pattern, just an idea that went somewhere :)

OVER as in I am all over in love with these dishcloths, they make me freaky happy!  I was nervous committing to a knit cloth for the dishcloth swap, I’m such a pokey knitter & I thought for sure I would get sick of repeat knitting ..but so far so good!

..granted I have only made 2 of them, using the pretty Georgian Lace Mat pattern ♥ ..Don’t you just LOVE it!

ON is for the On Off Shawl by the magical Larissa Brown, I was lucky enough to have the pleasure of test knitting this. I am in texture love.. (I had a little yarn leftover, so I made a matching super corsage!)
