It's Not Easy Being Green

Hello everyone!  I have to tell you...  I have been thinking green all week.  As I type this, it's sunny outside and even though there is still some remnants of snow on the ground, I can feel spring fast-approaching. 

In case you forgot about it, St. Patrick's Day is exactly a month away from today.  Why not celebrate early with a special order sale

St. Patrick's Day is coming!

I cannot take credit for this wonderful design, however!  It's from the very talented Sweet Kiwi Crochet.
I whipped up some of these St. Patrick's day hats that come in any size you would like.  Interested?

Order by Saturday, February 23rd for an introductory pre-sale price of 
and that includes shipping! 
You can order it with and without ear flaps, with or without ear flap braids...  whatever you like!

Speaking of St, Patrick's Day and green, I was honored to be able to complete some special orders this week, including a pesto green cowl...

Along with a beautiful, bright purple-fuchsia one for my best friend...

I also dabbled with a little heart hat, again from the amazing Sweet Kiwi Crochet!  I haven't put this one in the shop yet, but if you're interested, just let me know.  It can be made in any color and size you would like!

Another pattern I bought from Sweet Kiwi Crochet was this super cute lamb hat pattern, too!  What do you think?  I think I may put this on special for pre-order very soon...  Easter is not too far away!

I also had an order for some little cream booties!

And I didn't take pics of all of them... but I had quite a few coffee cozy orders.  I just did this one last night in a new wool felt color!  I kind of like this color... maybe even more than the gray?

 I want to also say sorry about not getting on that second item-of-the-week last week.  Things got busy and I got a little behind.  This is why I thought in addition to my St. Patrick's Day hat sale, I would also include a little something else...

Item of the Week:
You will receive the cowl - which is made of brushed acrylic and is super soft and light - 
and one flower of your choice for only 
and this includes shipping!  I have two of them available only and when they're gone... they're gone!
Last week it was gone in less than 10 minutes...  I'm interested in seeing how it goes this week!
Also, compliments to Holly Briscoe for her amazing photography skills!  I feel so lucky to have her in my life!

Lastly, I also whipped up a 3 month and an adult size in the same yarn!  I probably won't list either of those hats on etsy, but if you're interested, let me know.  The 3 month size would be $5 + $2 shipping and the adult size would be $8 with $2 shipping.  You can contact me here, on facebook, or on etsy

Whew!  I feel like this week is really full of photos!  The good news for my crochet obsession is that I might have a little extra time to work on items this week than I usually do.  They're talking about a snow storm here on the IL/WI border by the week's end.  As a teacher, I always cross my fingers for no snow days - mainly because making them up is a pain.  At the same time, I wouldn't mind seeing mother nature give me another blanket of brilliant, white snow and be able to get in a whole day of crocheting.  It gives me a beautiful scene to look at as I work hard on your orders and my new creations.  We will see how it pans out.  I hope that everyone's week went wonderfully, and I also hope the following week will be wonderful, too.  Until next time - think green!


  1. The color of that green cowl is amazing!! Maybe next year I should order some gloves from you in that color :)

    1. I love the color of that green cowl, too! I actually am a terrible glove maker though :( Maybe I could look for a pattern to try out next winter!
