Busy week!

Check out my shop here!

Another week has flown by and here we are... I've been busy with a few custom orders and creating lots of new things out of my handspun yarn.  I've also been busy around my house preparing for the holidays. It's just a busy time of year for everyone I think. I always think I'm going to do things more simply, which would be nice, but it always somehow ends up busy. Anyway, here are some lovely hats I made out of handspun yarn from one of my favorite spinners, Cynthia from Etsy's Autumnrose. You can take a look at her lovely shop here. This yarn was appropriately named Rowdy after Cynthia's bird and it sure was fun to crochet up! I got three adorable little hats out of that skein of yarn:
 I think they turned out awesome! An earflap hat, a chinstrap hat, and a Jester hat with poms. I was thinking it's hard to find fun things for little boys, but there's not a stitch of pink or purple to be found in these lovelies, so they would be a really fun alternative to the regular blue, cream, and brown photography props and newborn gifts for little guys.
 The earflap.
 The chinstrap. These are fairly new and pretty trendy in the world of photography props. The chinstrap is just attached to the hat on both sides but is pretty stretchy so it'll go right on those brand new babes without any problems and makes for a fun change up to the regular old beanie.
Always a fun favorite, the Jester hat!

Of course I've been up to a lot more then just these lately, but between the kids and everything else I've had just about zero time to photograph them and get them on the internet! I'm hoping to get a few new creations made to get into my shop soon. I also have a pile of OOAK handspun yarn calling my name! It really is my favorite to work with! I hope everyone can find a bit of relaxation in the hustle and bustle of this season. Visit back soon!
