Faux Burlap and Lace Silverware Pocket

I was browsing through Pinterest the other day when I came across a set of burlap and lace silverware holders—real burlap, real lace. I thought they were super cute and then I started thinking. I had crocheted the Burlap-like Ruffle Garland, why not these holders too!

Mimi's Ear Warmer Headband

My boys call my mom Mimi and even though I had never heard that name when I was a child, it seems to be quite popular for a grandmother’s name. I believe it started out as “Grammy”, but one of my twins changed it when he couldn’t say Grammy.

Mimi tries to make it to the boys sporting events and we’ve faced a wide variety of weather conditions here in PA while supporting the kids.

Taupe Infinity Scarf

Well here it is—the matching infinity scarf to the Taupe Slouch Hat—just as promised!

This scarf came out unbelievably well and matches the hat perfectly, in my honest opinion. It’s made with Caron Simply Soft in Taupe and it is super squishy and oh so soft! The exact type of accessory that I would love to wrap around myself when it’s cold outside. The last thing anyone wants to deal with when they’re trying to fight off a chill is a scratchy scarf! Yuck.

Taupe Slouch Hat

This past winter, I made quite a few winter hats and ear warmers like the Clusters and Stripes Ear Warmer Headband or the Jess Mess-y Bun Hat. Those kinds of projects are fun and fast and I liked giving them away as gifts.

I had been eyeing some yarn at the store, Caron Simply Soft Taupe, for a few weeks, never knowing just what I would do with it. One day, on a whim, two skeins ended up in my cart. It was just so pretty. The yarn actually sat in my stash for a few more weeks before I decided to do anything with it. Can anyone relate?

Garden Window Clothespin Bag

Hey Everyone!

May I present the Garden Window Clothespin Bag!

Originally I started this clothespin bag because I was testing the pattern for the Blue Ribbon Clothespin Bag. I had an extra skein of Red Heart Cornmeal in a tote and thought it would be perfect for the test. When this bag started coming to life, I had a new vision. I could see a window overlooking a garden of flowers! It was beautiful in my head and I am so pleased with how this came out.

Blue Ribbon Clothespin Bag

Here’s another one of those patterns that I have fully tested in my own home…for almost 10 years!

When we moved into our new house, the first thing I asked my husband to build was a clothesline. I’d never had one of my own before. I went out and bought some clothespins, but I needed a bag or something to put them in. Until I could find a solution to my problem, I was using a plastic ice cream bucket and it was not cutting it!

Strawberries and Cream X’s & O’s Infinity Scarf

Strawberries and Cream X's & O's Infinity Scarf
Hey Everyone!

I hope your week is going well. Even though I’m writing this post in June, it is never a bad idea to start making hats and scarves so you’re prepared for the coming winter. What was that story about the grasshopper who sang all summer?

Ah, never mind. You get my point.

It’s also funny to think that even though, here in Pennsylvania, we are just beginning our summer, the whole other side of the world is working their way through fall and into winter. So I suppose technically, winter hats and scarves can be relevant year round for at least someone!
