With no more in person sales and only a few small special requests before the holidays I decided to take a few days to make something for myself! In a recent Red Heart email I spotted the pattern for this divine poncho and, though I'm sure its intended for football fans, I knew I needed one to stay warm at the upcoming cool spring games of my beloved Kansas City Royals!
I made the size "small/medium" and as I am 4 inches taller than the average American woman (according to google) I had to add a few rows, but that was no big deal. I always get extra yarn because I know how these things go! I like that the yarn does the color change work for me. I wish there were a way to do color changes that look this neat with other types of variegated yarn, but I think it will only really work with the Team Spirit yarn.
And now I have a gift to give to you! Monday 12/21 is the last day that I can reasonably ship orders and expect you to get them before Christmas (via USPS Priority Mail). As such I decided to run a little special for you last minute shoppers! Stop by the Etsy shop and pick out something nice! Use the coupon code "OhShip" and you will get 30% off!
I'm going to take a little blog break next week, everyone will be busy with Christmas anyway, but I wish everyone super happy and safe holidays! In the words of Bill & Ted, Be Excellent To Each Other!

Just a short post today to thank everyone who came out to see me at sales and craft fairs this year! Its been super fun all around! My last live sale was this past weekend and now I can have a bit of a rest and make somethings for myself!
I will probably have a couple more sales before the end of the year so keep your eyes out here and on the Facebook page for details! Its not too late for holiday gifts or to treat yourself!

Ahhhhh, finally coming to the end of a long stretch of holiday craft shows! They are super fun, but a ton of work and I'm definitely ready for a break! I have just one left this Sunday in Kansas City...here is the info:
This should be a super fun one! I'm excited to be with like minded people who believe that horror movies are the best movies year round, not just one month! I've been working up a lot of things in black and rich dark colors, but don't worry, still plenty of neons!
If you miss this sale, don't worry! The Etsy Store will still be up and running and I can get whatever you might need to for gift giving to you by Christmas if you order by 12/21 (barring weather and post office snafus!). If you need something custom for that special someone I can do anything you see in the store within a couple of days, I could take custom orders of my regular products until 12/18 (subject to change if my schedule fills up!). And don't forget, if you don't get that cozy item you may have wanted to Christmas you can always buy it for yourself! The store is live year round! I'll be adding some new home decor items that I'm excited about and I'll keep you posted on what those are via the blog.

I make a lot of stuff...I pretty much never stop making! Every Thursday I will post here about things I've made. It will be mostly crochet, but not entirely, and where I can I will include tutorials or links to how I figured out how to do things!
