❤ Custom orders! ❤

::Pattern Notes::

  • Pattern – The Roy Hooded Dog Sweater
  • Hook – 4.50mm
  • Yarn – worsted weight. I used red, forest green, & christmas yarn – all vintage from my stash
  • many many bells! red & gold
  • yarn needle & scissors & stitch marker

I  wasn’t sure if the dog sweater would fit as I didn’t have a wee dog handy to try on during the making – so I put complete trust in the designer that it would work.  Something I don’t often do I realize.  It did fit!  I added the edging and bells. A simple scallop of {(DC,TR),PICOT,(TR,DC),SC} & sew bells on the picot.

Now to make one to match his human daddy. 😀

Crocodile Mitts, number 2


Such lovely yarn, I had to make another pair for the shop. I have yet to make a pair for myself… soon.

This pair was a bit more fiddly than the first time around,  had to cut and retie the yarn to get the colours to match in the second mitt. I wasn’t thrilled about that, but the results are still fantastic.

Beading, my old friend

Source: Time to reorganize…

Seeing this artist’s beautiful beads reminds me that I haven’t beaded in a while. To long!  I must get back to my first love, thread a thin needle, & string small glass jewels. Make something beautiful.

For beautiful inspiration, visit her website. She makes such beautiful pieces, & sells kits as well.

Bulbasaur debut!

Got a custom order for a Bulbasaur Toque, so I wrote up the pattern!  Finally it is ready for sale on Ravelry.  The finished toque is available in my Etsy shop.


There is a lot of appliques & it was fun figuring out how to do the bulb.

I used pipecleaners on the ears so that they will stay standing up & a bit of polyfil in the bulb.

Find it in my Etsy shop & get the toque for 20% off, no coupon required.

Find it in my Ravelry shop & get the pattern for 40% off with coupon code DOOMBLOG
