No Good Excuse!

Well, now I really shot myself in the foot.  A whole year!  Almost my favorite time of year again, though!  (Halloween)  Anyway, I did get a camera last year for xmas, I am just a lazy, forgetful, unmotivated person, except for in small spurts.  Well, now my man and I have our own place, our own computer, and I have a camera.... so we are going to try this again. (By we I mean me and my crazy self)  And just to prove I mean business I am actually going to post some pictures!!! Because we all know we don't come to this blog for the writing! =D

These items are all for kids, because kid's stuff is adorable!  This first photo is of a toy I made from an idea at Dedri is so awesome for posting her stuff and letting others make and sell her ideas in small batches; I just had to put a little of my own spin on it to spread the creativity even further!

These next two pairs of slippers just make me smile from ear to ear.  Their colors are just fabulous for little kids to enjoy and they are so funky and different you have to love them!  I figured out how to make these from looking at a pair of them one time that a friend showed me.  I don't know who to credit for this pattern, someone in her family made hers and I just got lucky to figure it out.  I am not even sure I made them the exact way that anyone else has?  No matter what, these are sweet and comfy, although super slippery on the right kind of smooth surface... which is still awesome when you want to slide across the kitchen floor to toss your trash! =)  Yes, I have my own pair!! B)

Next I have some great scarves that can be worn by children, or if you are feeling really young at heart, by any age!  I feel all but the thinner one in the middle are a bit short for adults, but some of use aren't really that tall anyway!  The colors are also really playful and found in lots of children's clothes.  The mint and white one was made using two strands of yarn held together and is soft and sweet.  The second one, which has purple, blue, and green colors throughout is made from cotton and is great as an accent piece on a cool spring or fall day.  The last one is just crazy!  It is also soft and has a good warm weight to it, because I used Caron yarn. <3 It is very deceptive in how warm it can be from the look, but if you have ever had a granny square blanket you know those holes are needed so you don't over heat!  And I just have to toot my own horn here.... ALL of these scarves are my own creations using various stitch patterns!  I know, it's "knot" that rare of an achievement, but it makes me feel like I am getting into the upper crust of crochet artistry!

Last, but not least, a cute pair of crochet booties I made a while back.  I did use a pattern I probably found online, so I won't mass produce them for sale or anything.  I hope to come up with something by myself that is at least marginally unique in its design here soon, I just haven't quite figured it out yet...

OK! That is all you get today!  I am so happy I got to share with you once again!  I will persist in this communication, and hopefully it will get less sporadic and help get me and my work noticed.  Wish me luck, and I will see ya'll again soon!
