•Crocheted CALM COWL – Finished Object!

calm cowl finished object

I finished crocheting this gorgeous Calm Cowl and just had to tell you about it!

YARN: I used my Shimmering Cashmere yarn… isn’t it scrumptious? So shimmery, due to the silk, and butter soft, from the cashmere. The shine, the richness of the colors… so REDONK! (I held all the yarn double)

-The black is some scrap yarn I had.

-The cream color is this yarn undyed. (If you’d like me to list some natural/undyed versions of my yarn, let me know!) Less […]

Possibly The Cutest Booties I’ve Ever Seen

These crocheted booties are possibly the cutest I’ve ever seen. Ever.

As such, I’ll keep my words to a minimum and shower you with loads of pictures.

The yarn is my Macaw worsted wt wool (takes 3 skeins). We no longer carry this yarn, but you can use any worsted weight yarn here.

The pattern is by Bonita Patterns (love her stuff!).

I loved making these! I highly recommend the pattern!

I’ve got a simple, beautiful, easy, beginner-level, but still-looks-fancy-like-you-really-know-what-you’re-doing Spiral Crochet Scarf Pattern for you. And it’s free! Who doesn’t love a free pattern? YAY!

If the Sun Could Crochet – Free Boot Topper Pattern

I think if the sun could crochet, it would make something bright and warm and delicious and definitely yellow!

Maybe something like these crocheted yellow boot toppers!

I made these for my wonderful niece, Diana.

Yarn: 2 skeins of my bulky wt wool in color, Sunshine.

I bundled these up in burlap and tied with some of the yarn remnants instead of using wrapping paper:

The Makings of a Beautiful Thing


This cashmere yarn has been through a lot.

I ordered it back in November, I think. It sat on the shelves for awhile, as I was a little afraid to dye it up… after all, it was cashmere!!  Oh, the buttery softness! How could I even risk messing it up?

Who knows what came over me, but one day, I grabbed a bunch of skeins of it, got two big pots of dye going (one in a rich raspberry color and one in green).

I dunked the skeins into the raspberry pot and simmered until the dye was fully absorbed into the fibers… […]
