If only I had the patience...

To knit something larger than a neckwarmer, or hat. I've tried, have sweaters and vests (baby no less) started, sitting in my knitting box, still on it's needles. Here are a few designs that inspire me, and when I have a minute or two (or a few hours or days) to myself, maybe I'll start it, and perhaps....a very huge perhaps, I'll actually finish it. A girl can dream can't she?

Top Down Garter Stitch Yoke Vest by Naganasu

Raspy by kim hargreaves

love this design, so casually chic, like when bedhead was all the rage and you'd spend hard earned money on product that would make you look like you haven't washed your hair in weeks.

the yarn for this project was bought over a year ago, and do you think i've even attempted it yet? dust on the bag says no.

it did, however inspire me, and that's how the fabulous unravelled hat was born. It's still one of my favorite hats to make.

Shopping Extravaganza

Knittles had the first Craft sale of the season, the holiday season that is. We got to test our new hat displays - they worked out great and definitely made the table look so much better. Got lots of comments as well. Oh yes, and of course the trees - they were cute as well and definitely let us display the kids hats better - lots of people stopped by and commented on our handmade cuteness.

For the next week we are
going to be working hard on  Children's hats. It seems like we always have the wrong size hats for children :-) So need to make more 3+ sizes along with finishing 8 neck warmers.

New Wicker Head Displays are here

2 boxes of sweetest display heads arrived today from Cathay Imports in Vancouver. Love them, the "handmade look" goes really well with our hats and scarves, wish they had hands too for mittens.

Knittles Awesome Earflap Hat

Found us on, someone noticed our Awesome Earflap Hat. Yes, the name is a bit cocky, but it is what is is - just plain awesome hand knitted hat. Love it every time I make it (sold 5 hats so far including the vegan version from 100% cotton yarn) and keep thinking of making one for myself.
