New items!

I love new challenges and fresh ideas, and here are a few of my latest! 

(A couple of these were inspired by my customers.)

I really LOVE the fingerless gloves!  They're ideal for people who want warm hands and wrists but need their fingers (toll booth attendants, cashiers, secretaries, etc).  The little teddy bear hat just makes me smile.  I would love to see it used in a photography session!  And last, but not least, who could deny a cute green face like the one on my new frog?

I have so many other ideas churning in my head!  Keep watch!!  And if you have any requests, let me know!

Tick, tick, tick...


My FIRST yarn bomb!

I've been itching to create my own "yarn bomb" ever since I discovered what they were a couple weeks ago.  When I first heard the term, I pictured people taking their yarn scraps and throwing them over trees, similar to toilet-papering.  But I soon discovered it is a form of graffiti, although not actual graffiti since it is removable and causes no damage to property.  It is also considered a form of art.  People typically place brightly colored creations on boring or run down things throughout the city to make them more beautiful.  This morning was my first attempt at surprising someone with a "bomb"! 

As you can see, "yarn bombing" can be extreme!  I found this little jewel HERE.  I'm not sure I could ever do anyting quite so large.  Right now I'm happy just to leave small treasures for people to enjoy. 

This photo was found HERE.  Very cool!!!
