Misty Moonlight Scarf

Happy Tuesday! I got Misty Moonlight Scarf up today. It's very silky and warm and I was SO excited when I got this in the shipment of yarn I had ordered. The eyelash was surprisingly silky. The base is a gray homespun while the eyelash switches between silver and black. Click on the picture to see more on Etsy.

Yesterday I re-listed Raspberry Ice Scarf, a fellow Etsian had bought one and I decided to make another since it was pretty :)
Pretty happy with yesterday actually, I had two main goals for the day: Finish a holiday scarf called Eggnog (will be up soon) and make and list the Raspberry Ice Scarf. Got both done and got another project ready before I went to bed last night. Also have a set I need to get started on but it's going to be crocheted so it won't take long :) Well I'm off for now and I probably won't be listing anything else new this week because of Thanksgiving so I wish everyone who is having one a great Turkey day and have fun on Black Friday! :D

Tutti Frutti Scarf

Another day, another scarf! I made Tutti Frutti for adults and children (though I was the only one able to model it) it's 60" in length which would be large (or extra-large depending on age) for a kid but they can be wrapped up and kept warm. Another store owner I know through facebook has a 5 year old who she made a 60" scarf for and she can get bundled in it quite well. Best thing is, even as they grow up, this scarf won't get too small. :)
The color combo in this scarf reminded me of a Tutti Frutti flavored Jelly Bean. So that's how it got the name because originally I was going to name it Candy Land scarf and it just didn't fit.

Sad Squishy News

Unfortunately, my start of today was not a happy one. My mother called to tell me one of her close friends and the women who has been there my whole life (helped raised me) had passed on.

There aren't any words that I can find right now to describe how wonderful a person she was and how strong. She was hit with so many hardships in her life and nothing ever broke her spirit, nothing ever made her stop helping to save animals and give them better homes. I have so many amazing stories and happy memories. I believe I'm sort of in's a weird detached feeling-I can't believe she's gone it's almost like I didn't think it was possible for it to happen to her.

I send my condolences to her family and hope that more people out there follow in her footsteps to save homeless or sheltered animals out there.

She was strong, a miracle worker with humans and animals, and most of all-she was loved.
RIP to my other mother. I will always remember and love you.

Fall Harvest Scarf

Fall Harvest Scarf is now up on Etsy. I debated for awhile even putting this one up. It looked so good with my clothes I wanted to keep it :P

Over the weekend I finished a very nice suede-like scarf order. I haven't taken a picture yet but since the order was for a friend I'll take one when he wears it.

Desert Scarf for Men

Yay! I finally got my first scarf for men up! I realize guys probably aren't looking around for scarves online but I figured it's nearing the holiday season and plenty of ladies are looking to get gifts and whether they'll admit it or not, guys get cold too :P

If you want to check it out click here.

In other news, I shut down the madeitmyself and shophandmade store sites. The views were there, the sales weren't. With all the new items I'm making it was also a hassle to have to update 4 stores at once. So I'm sticking with Etsy. This way I can spend more time making new items than working on making everything match up online. :P

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Caramel Apple Scarf

Yesterday was a success. Sugared Apple Scarf sold after barely being up for a day!

So next my little apple series is the Caramel Apple Scarf. Really I don't know why I'm such an apple kick...maybe my wallflower in my room is doing it...smells sooo good. Like walking around an apple farm. Anyway, this one is rich and a little more earthy with the caramely fur. Size long, stops just above my knee (I'm 5'4").
In other news I got my first custom order already this month and it's only the 3rd! I'm on a good roll :) So after a short lunch break I'm going to get started on that. Toodles!
