having a total hat moment

I’m supposed to be making hats for a silent auction (don’t get me wrong, it’s such a great feeling knowing you can make something that someone else would actually pay money for, all while doing good on the behalf of another someone else) but sometimes after making hat after hat after hat you completely lose your mind, and then all of the sudden get distracted by man socks.

..and then you have to take a photo of the soak because your soap looks like melted butter on a gross wool water sink pancake.

In the final rounds admitting to yourself you are so glad to never again have to knit size 13 all black socks with HULK toes and wondering why he doesn’t love super quick hats as much a sloggy handknit socks?

9-14-17 things

 

Last weeks cooler temps had me putting warmer wools on the loom. I made a scarf that reminded me of the Dr.Who I watched as a kid on PBS,

while not being a true fourth doctor version, I am totally in love with this plaid ..the wool on the other hand is scratchy as hell and with temps close to 90° this week, my lengthy Tom Baker will have to wait.

I always seem to come back to this happy place, no new puffs, but a few of my old favorites. I want to be the continual beekeeper, because there is just something so candy cute about these little hexi pops 💕

(links to all my free charts can be had a few different ways: by clicking the picture, hitting the Patterns & Ideas tab on the menu bar above or found on my Ravelry Designer Page)

Canvas on canvas in the blackest of black, extra wide handle, perfect pockets and zero broken needles! I even added a little nylon charm loop to the front seam, sadly it vanished into the void of blackness, which happens every time I try to photograph a black object on a black object.

…now I’m thinking how many bags are too many bags, what to do with all the BAGS?!?

I’ve been sewing since I was a girl and have a massive fabric stash, but I still cave EVERY TIME to the lure of lovely fabric, how can you say no to organic cotton in a vintage 2015 print? You can’t. So I made another cute notions pouch, selvages and everything! 😍

..again thinking, how many pouches are too many pouches?!? AND I almost bought a another sewing machine ..wth is my problem.

(If you want to have a go at making your own vinyl pouch, there is a great tutorial on the BERNINA site from a few years back or Chicken Boots, offers a very similar zip notions case as a sewing pattern and kit!)
