Fall is here!

I'm baaaaaaaaaack!

Get excited, folks... cooler weather is coming and I have a whole slew of new products to show you!!!

I'm especially excited to debut my new fingerless gloves. If you work in a chilly office, you will absolutely LOVE these. You can type and still keep warm. Plus, I found some beautiful verigated yarn that will go with everything.

I've also been cranking out some more beard hats. Stay tuned for an entire feature on the hat that has taken the internet by storm!

More to follow.....

1 product, 2 uses!

Is it a coffee cozy or is it a camera case? It can be both!

When I bought my new camera a few months ago, one of the main requirements was that it had to be small enough to fit in my purse or pocket. Since it is so small, it's also pretty delicate, so I needed a way to protect the camera, without negating the whole purpose of getting a slim camera!

I had already been making these coffee cozies and realized they double perfectly as a camera case! It doesn't add bulk, but it protects against scratches (and accidental drops!) Find the color that works for you. Cozies (and camera cases!)

Coffee Break

Sometimes, you set out to sell one item, and something completely different takes off!

I thought I'd use my etsy site to sell scarves, but then I decided to use some leftover yarn to create reusable coffee cozies. It's turned into my #1 seller! I actually use one as a camera case - it's perfect because it doesn't add bulk, but it protects the camera when I throw it in my purse.

I love making these because I can experiment with different color combinations and patterns. Plus, they look so much better on your coffee cup than those ugly paper sleeves. Oh, and they're only $5!

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to my little corner of the internet world! I've set up this space to show you some of the fun crochet projects I've been working on. Don't worry, I'm not planning on using this to give personal diatribes or miscellaneous musings. Basically, it's just an extension of my Etsy site -! I'll highlight creative and unique items I find on etsy and beyond. Want me to feature your work? Feel free to contact me!

Yes, it's shameless self-promotion, but at least I'm being upfront about it!

I was introduced to crochet by my dear friend, Janice Stewart, about 2 years ago and I've been obsessed ever since! Check out Janice's site:
