New mitten styles

Both shops are up and running! One of TheCraftStar and one on Etsy!

I’ve been working on a new pattern for mittens, I think I have the first one down, a basic cabled mitten

Grey Cabled Mittens

 

The other style i’m working on will be a lace pattern similar to the travel mug sleeves

I am now looking for color suggestions! What are the predictions for fall and winter colors this year?!

Apocalypse?

So I got slammed with custom orders this month, and thanks to a few all nighters got everything out in time for Christmas!

It’s too late now to get an order to to you before the 25th but who doesn’t love an after christmas sale!

New Pattern for iPhone cases!

In the past¬†I’ve¬†attempted¬†to make iPod/Zune and iPhone cases but I could just never find that sweet spot. Until yesterday when I basically had an epiphany which is¬†ridiculous¬†since the answer had been staring me in the face the whole time! But since I sprained my ankle I’ve had a lot of down time on the couch to think, and create new patterns and experiment. Which led me to my new phone cases!

 

I’m working on more today, and am taking custom orders. I have most colors in stock!

 

As always wordpress readers get free shipping (including international) on all orders. If you’re interested in anything from my shop just use coupon code WORDPRESS

 

Pink Hair, Borderlands, HairBows, Election, and an all around update

So, to avoid negative posts about my frustration with politics I have avoided posting for the past few weeks.

And even with the election over I know about half of the US is complaining and bitching but NOT HERE!

Gary Johnson got over 1% off the votes (not much I know) BUT it’s the most a libertarian candidate has ever gotten. Anyway, it’s over. Now we have to see if congress can actually work together to get some things done. HA. Okay moving onto the fun stuff.

 

I dyed my hair pink!! And I don’t have really any decent pictures yet but soon hopefully.

 

 

This is of course not natural light, the pink is softer than this, not quite as bright after a few washes.
And I’m pretty sure this is about the only thing I HAVEN’T done to my hair yet. I hadn’t dyed it in a year and was itching to do something fun. Granted pink hair, piercings, and tattoos gets me some awesome looks in our super conservative area but if I actually cared I¬†wouldn’t¬†have those things. Anyone who makes a snap¬†judgement¬†like that probably isn’t worth getting to know anyway!

So next on the update list BORDERLANDS!!

I am super behind on my video gaming and was recently convinced by everyone I know that I HAD to play borderlands, I also got Oblivion, and FableII.

Borderlands so far might be one of the best games I’ve played for a very long time! James and I are co-oping. we’re about 3/4 of the way through the game and we LOVE IT!! It’s a great compromise for us because I love RPGs and he likes FPS with little to no story line.

Fable has been fun as well, quite a time sink, I get caught up and then all of a sudden it’s been a few hours. But overall I like it, nice easy-ish fun game. Plus I like the story line.

Now … Oblivion … I’ve been dying to play the elder scrolls series for a long time. I’ve read amazing reviews, all my friends love it and from the sounds of it it’s a game I would enjoy a lot. Now, i’m fairly new to console gaming. I’ve always been a PC gamer. That being said, I panic and button mash! I also really¬†don’t¬† like scary things, i’m easily frightened. not of blood and gore, that’s fine but things that jump out at you, i tend to scream, button mash, and promptly die. I haven’t spent much time with Oblivion, i’m still learning the controls and whatnot, but I have not made it past the first¬†dungeon. Maybe after we finish Borderlands, and before we start BorderlandsII I’ll get some more time into it.

So that’s it for the game update.
Now onto the shop update.

I’ve been knitting hairbows like crazy and have been working out new patterns for coffee cozy’s and gloves!

I have also been trying to get back into the grove of listing a few things every day and focusing on smaller items.
I’ve already started getting custom orders for Christmas which is AWESOME! And I’m very excited about that!

As always if you are interested in anything from my shop my WordPress readers always get free shipping (including international) just use coupon code WORDPRESS when you check out ‚̧

Hope everyone has been well, and you’re not too stressed about the election!
Turkey Day is coming up, which means I’ll be posting some new recipes soon!!
Stay tuned!
