From February 1st through February 15th you can use this discount on both my Etsy store and Storenvy store (whichever platform suits your shopping needs and wants!). Here’s the pretty graphic I made up for it 🙂 Feel free to share this graphic on your social media! Happy Shopping!

Newest Custom Orders!

I love custom orders! There’s just something about making a custom special item for someone that gets me excited! My latest two were done in the same yarn, Cold Mountain, which meant I was super happy when I found out I had just enough for both projects lol. Since then I have taken down my custom listings until I get all my yarn pictures updated, but never fear, they’ll be back soon!

First up, custom wrist warmers! These are special because the person ordering asked if they could be a bit shorter, and have a smaller thumb hole! I said “no problem!” and got to work 🙂




Next is this hat. I have not updated all the pictures, so this is the only one I have right now. I will of course come back and update this 🙂 The order was for a custom ear flap hat with tassels! I love me some custom hats 😉 This hat is also special because it is not just an adult sized hat, it is an extra large hat to accommodate large hairstyles! *as a side note, no I do not charge more for an extra large hat, just let me know if it’s needed!*


With these two done and sent to their respectful owners, I am now working on my random projects! I always have at least two in my desk that are WIPs. I have also started working on some birthday gifts 😀 I cannot wait to show them off (after the person receives them of course!).

What have you been working on lately? 🙂

Custom LSU Colored Set

This order came to from an Army buddy of mine 🙂 She requested two hats, a scarf and wrist warmers in purple and yellow which are LSU’s team colors! I was more than happy to make all of these, though I will admit it took me almost three weeks to finish!

Here are some of the final pictures I was able to get before shipping the items off to her 🙂






These were all made with two different yarns, both 100% acrylic. I’m pleased to say, she liked them a lot!

Luxury Wrist Warmers

This is my latest custom order of wrist warmers! Jessica, of Sew Do Something, was the lucky one who received them. They are made from one of my favorite yarns, Loops and Threads in the color called “Luxury.” I think they came out beautifully.

If you like this pair, and would like your own, here is the custom listing in my store for you to get them. As a special for the holiday season, I am offering 15% off your entire purchase if you use code HOLIDAY15 when you check out 🙂 Enjoy!

Wrist Warmers!

Here is my latest set of wrist warmers! They’re a gift for a friend who has been going through a rough time! I have also included a surprise… which I will tell about after she has received her package 🙂 I used the tutorial I posted a while back. I love this yarn, the colors are gorgeous and the yarn was very easy to work with!

Has anyone else used the tutorial? What do you think of this new pair? If you’re interested in a custom pair, and would like to purchase a pair let me know!
