Crochet Bobble Beanie

Loved loved making this - I'd played around with the idea of a bobble hat before, but couldn't get it to come out right. This time the hat literally flowed out of my hands like magic. It's the coziest, chunkiest, warmest hat imaginable - I absolutely love it. 

Available to buy in my Etsy shop!

(makes a great holiday gift)

(I also made it home in time yesterday to take some photos before the sun disappeared. Yay!)

Monday Lunch Break

Autumn seems to be finally making its slow way here to northwest Arkansas. Apparently the summer was quite mild, but it's been dragging on forever. The trees are showing more color now and it actually gets somewhat chilly at night. I'm hoping it snows at least once before I leave.

Yes, leave! My next adventure is moving back to my beloved New England and living there for the foreseeable future! My season in AR is just about over, and I can't wait to see what's next. 

I'm sitting in the break room at the library and thinking about my latest projects and hoping it won't be too dark to do some product photography when I get home. Can't wait to show y'all what I've been working on! I've got something lacy, something cabled, and something sparkly too.

Fact about me: I can't just sit and knit or crochet. I need to be either watching a movie/show or listening to music - usually the show wins out though. My latest obsession has been British murder mystery series - I just re-watched episode one of Sherlock, watched The Escape Artist with David Tennant, and am now starting Wallander. Hoping to get my hands on some more Marple episodes too! The thing about knitting while watching these shows is that I have something to distract myself with if it gets too scary, and it's interesting enough to keep my attention. BBC does such a great job on their TV shows.

Okay, back to work. Happy Monday :)

Knit Striped Fingerless Gloves

Knit in a self-striping, super soft sock yarn, these fun fingerless gloves look amazing under a light fall jacket or flannel shirt. This pretty pair is available for sale in my Etsy shop!

Pssst...the pattern might also be available very soon!
