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!

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 😉

Hugs and Smooches,

Create 365 – Geek Chic Crochet

Here is the current project in the works for the Create 365 project..

This hat pattern is from the book “Geek Chic Crochet”.


There are some really adorable patterns in this book!  I love the dress pattern on the cover as well 🙂

I have been working on the hat in a pretty wine color and I think I’m going to do the ribbon in gray velvet..Still deciding on that 😉
