Create 365 – Faux Fox Stole

This little fella is kind of free form.  I created him without a pattern and just added and subtracted stitches as I went.  My current project it teaching myself to create a website, which may take a bit of time, so you’ll notice a temporary slow down in posts 😉  I’ll keep you all updated!

Hugs and Smooches,

Create 365 Project Update

Soooo, I began this collar yesterday from the spring issue of Vogue Knitting.  I’m making it in a lovely kelly green (in honor of St. Patrick’s day). 

Since I’m determined to work on creating something each day, I put the yarn, magazine and needles into my purse and brought it along with me for dinner with my family…and then proceeded to get totally distracted, lose track of where I was and mess up my pattern.  I had to unravel it all (cussing the whole time..well, my brand of cussing..which usually involves words like “holy peanuts!” and “son of a biscuit”).  I think maybe I need to put the yarn down for a little bit and try a different project.  Though my sewing and jewelry making projects may not be as portable, they might be a welcome respite as they come a little easier to me.

Perhaps I’ll start an embroidery project..that should travel fairly easily!

I’ll keep you posted on my progress, and I will certainly be revisiting this collar because I’m totally head over heels for it 😉

Create 365 – Project Updates

I’m still plodding along with the Geek Chic hat pattern.  I’m hoping to have it complete by this weekend (which will be excellent timing, since we’re expecting a rather large snow storm in the next few days 😉

In the meantime, I thought I would share with you a few other things I have in mind for the Create 365 project.  This is not a comprehensive list, but a few highlights that I’m really looking forward to tackling!

I want to create this dress for the spring.  The pattern was designed by the lovely Gertie of Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing.  Her blog is a HUGE favorite of mine, you should go take a peek at it if you love to sew!

I also purchased Gertie’s Book and fell in love with a scalloped skirt pattern.

I think I’d like to do it in a pretty teal blue or fuchsia color.

On the knitting front, I just purchased the spring issue of Vogue Knitting and I LOVE the brightly colored knitted collars!  I think I may begin with this one, but I might be moved to make them all 😉

Also on the knitting front (a far more ambitious pattern than I have yet attempted) this adorable sweater from Knit Vintage, by Madeline Weston.

In addition, I have several projects of my own design in the works, including a new jewelry line, and some additions to some of my current lines (Like the Sirene and Once Upon a Time series) and another doll for a special someone 😉

I can’t wait to share these with you!  Let me know if you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear your opinions.
