Happy Day

{ 0 comments }

I had a very nice day today! I will share with you in a moment, but first I want to share a few snaps I took yesterday. When I was at Rhinebeck on Sunday, Doug and the girls decorated the house for Halloween.

Spooky-door-2014

Here is a close up of the front door.

Spooky-house-2014

And the front of the house in all it’s spookiness!

Kyla's-hopscotch

Yesterday afternoon the girls made some art out back. This is a portrait of Kyla in her Elsa Halloween costume, standing over a hopscotch board.

Ready-to-hop

Ready to hop!!

 

So…Today. After dropping the kids at school, I drove over to do some grocery shopping. Just as I was pulling into a parking spot, “Pour Some Sugar On Me” came on the radio. I turned the volume all the way up and sat in the parking lot for the next few minutes.

Then, as I was almost home, “Livin On A Prayer” came on. So I ended up sitting in my driveway for a few minutes.

After unpacking the groceries, I headed downstairs to get some work done.

Making-Videos

I made a series of videos for a new Stitchopedia post. I think a lot of you will find it very useful! It took quite some time to record all the videos, and I still have to edit them all. However, I hope to have it done by the end of the week, or the beginning of next at the latest.

New-Yarn-to-Play-with

Just as I was leaving to pick up the girls, I noticed a package in the mail. It was this super fun yarn! I have a great pattern in mind for you. :)

It was starting to rain, so I drove to pick up the girls, and “Kashmir” came on. It’s two for Tuesday, so after “Kashmir” there was another Led Zeppelin song: “What Is and What Should Never Be“. It was a very good music day!! It also made me realize I really need to finish organizing the basement and get a working radio down there so I can listen to music more. I always worked better in my costume shop when I had Q104.3 on, and I am sure the same will be true here. See, logical reason to rock out.

After dinner I ran downstairs to block a new design I have been working on.

Coming-Soon

You are really going to love this one!!

Rhinebeck 2014!

{ 1 comment }

What a fabulous weekend!! I spent all day Sunday at the Rhinebeck Sheep and Wool Festival. I’ll tell you about that in a moment, but first I want to share a photo from Saturday.

Out-to-dinner-for-Daddy's-birthday

Doug’s birthday was on Thursday, but the girls only got to see him for an hour. They wanted to really celebrate his birthday, so we had a Daddy’s Birthday Day on Saturday. We went out for frozen yogurt, to a movie, then out to dinner. The girls love those coloring mats at the restaurants!

Sunday morning I got up bright and early and drove into the City to pick up my friend Claire (we’re both admins for the Knitting Facebook group) and 2 of her friends. It was the first time I have met Claire in person, and she was as fabulous as I thought she would be! Then it was a nearly 2 hour drive up to Rhinebeck. I am just going to share some photos with you, with only a bit of text.

We're-Here

Here are Claire and Tracy when we first arrived.

This-was-just-too-cute

This little booth was just too cute not to photograph!

Octopus-gloves

One look at the mitten on the left and I thought “Moogly!!”

Look-at-all-the-colors

Oh the colors! All the pretty colors!!

Rainbow

Tracy bought a whole rainbow of colors.

Look-Yarn

Yarn!!

Get-me-out-of-here

This guy (or gal, not really sure) was really trying to make a break for it.

I-have-no-idea

I have no idea. We walked into this barn with a family doing some awfully silly things with Llamas. We were thoroughly confused.

Llama

Here is a better shot of a Llama!

band

There was some live music.

our-haul

We really had a wonderful day. So much yarn. So much fun.

our-haul-in-Thor

Here is our haul, packed into Thor and ready to go!

My-food-and-drink-goodies

In addition to all the sheep, yarn, and everything in between, there was also a lot of food and wine. I picked up a some tasty treats!

My-yarn-goodies

And here is my haul!! I have some great ideas of what to do with all of it.

I hope you all had a fun weekend as well!

It Girl Crochet is full of my kind of patterns!! Sharon Zientara has compiled a collection of wonderfully unique patterns that are both modern and vintage at the same time. As a designer, there are times that I look at a pattern and think “Man! I wish I came up with that design myself!!” While looking through this book, I found myself thinking that multiple times.

The book is divided into 3 sections: Crochet Nouveau, It’s a Mod, Mod World, and A Brave New Boho. Seen on the cover, the Psychedelia Mitts, designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson are part of the It’s a Mod, Mod World section. Not only is the look of these mitts unique, but so is the construction. They are worked as a flat oval, which is worked in the round, and then stitched together to become mitts. If you know my designs, you know I love different ways of constructing items, so I am quite taken with this pattern!

It Girl Crochet By Sharon Zientara Interweave/F+W; $22.99 Image provided by and used with permission from Interweave/F+W

The Crochet Nouveau section is full of patterns inspired by the art nouveau period. There are several capes/wraps/shawls in this section, but my two favorite Crochet Nouveau patterns do not fit in that category.

The Mes Petite Mitts combine traditional crochet and Tunisian crochet worked both vertically and horizontally to create lovely texture. I also like that they are nice and long.

Quite possibly my favorite pattern in this book is the Purse of Prosperity Designed by Sarah Read. The beautiful pomegranate image is worked into the purse using tapestry crochet. Beads are used as the seeds inside the pomegranate. There is a simpler, but still lovely, image on the back of the purse. This purse would certainly be a conversation starter!

In addition the the mitts on the cover of the book, It’s a Mod, Mod world contains several other fun patterns inspired by the sixties. This section is full of bold prints and colors.

I love the technique used in the Op~Art Reversible Scarf designed by Robyn Chachula. The two sides of this scarf are different from each other, and they are both very attractive. This is a great piece to learn a new technique. The pattern repeat is just 3 rows, so by the time you have finished the scarf, you will be an expert with the stitch pattern!

A Brave New BOHO is full of playful patterns in the Bohemian style. You will find plenty of chunky yarn and solid colors.

Bon Vivant Stockings ~ Image provided by and used with permission from Interweave/F+W

You will also find a pattern sure to grace my hook in the near future: the Bon Vivant Stockings designed by Brenda K. B. Anderson. Though you can not see it too well in this picture, there is a lovely pineapple motif on the top back of these stockings. Slip stitch crochet is used in this pattern to create elasticity, making the fit just right for socks!

If you are looking for some lovely accessories that are sure to impress, this is the book for you. Now I just wish there were more hours in the day so I could make them all!!

Scoodie-Round-Up

Scoodies are just fun!! What’s a scoodie? It’s a scarf and a hood, all as one piece. I love that you don’t get that draft on the back of your neck from the space between your hat and your scarf, and they keep your ears warm, too! Fun and functional, what’s not to love?!

So, I have put together a round up of scoodie crochet patterns for you. I even included a bonus knit pattern at the end.

Here are the names and links of each pattern, along with a little something that each designer has to say about them.

1) Shadow Stitch Scoodie ~ Designed by Meladora’s Creations

2) Snow Bear Scoodie ~ Designed by Debi Dearest

3) Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie with Pockets ~ Designed by Moogly
Several things came together to make the Cuddly Cat Crochet Scoodie with Pockets – a reader request, my kids’ love of animals, and the inevitable need for new winter hats! Out of all these came this fun hat/hood-scarf-pockets cat lover’s combo!

4) Amazing Grace Snoodie ~ Designed by Beatrice Ryan Designs
Amazing Grace Snoodie is the Fourth design in my Amazing Grace Series. These Free Patterns are dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness. The Snoodie is a feminine Cowl with an attached Hood… Warm and versatile! Easy to work up and fun to wear!!!!

5) Debbie’s Dramatic Scoodie ~ Designed by American Crochet
With this pattern, you can make your own gorgeous Dramatic Scoodie!

6) How to crochet a Scoodie/Scarf crossed with a Hoodie ~ Designed by Clare Sullivan
Here is a video tutorial from Bob Wilson 123

7) Scrappy Scoodie ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
I have been wanting to make a scoodie for a while now, and then last week I made some yarn from left over little balls I had, and it was screaming “scoodie!!” to me. So here is my fabulously fun scrappy scoodie pattern for you.

AND ~ Here is a bonus KNIT pattern!

Knit-Scrappy-Scoodie-small-square

Knit Scrappy Scoodie ~ Designed by Jessie Rayot
After making a fun scrappy scoodie in crochet a few weeks ago, I just had to make a knit version. I love all the little ends sticking up everywhere! So find some scrap bulky yarn and start tying.

Don’t forget to check out some of the other great Round Ups that have happened in Blogland over the last week!

Scrappy Scoodie ~ Knit Version
Knit Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

After making a fun scrappy scoodie in crochet a few weeks ago, I just had to make a knit version. I love all the little ends sticking up everywhere! So find some scrap bulky yarn and start tying. :)

Knit-Scrappy-Scoodie-Free-Pattern

Size:
Child large (works for teen or small adult)

Yarn:
Loops and Threads Charisma
Approximately 120 g of tied scrap yarn (see “getting started” section) referred to as “multi~color” in pattern
Approximately 60 g of a solid color yarn

Hook:
US 11/8.00 mm

Gauge:
12 sts by 16 rows in stockinette in a 4″ square

Stitches and Skills used:
CO ~ cast on
K ~ knit
P ~ purl

Getting Started:
I had a lot of small balls of Charisma yarn left over from last year’s Christmas gifts. I cut it into 2~4 yard pieces and tied it back together to make this yarn. You can read more about how I “made” my yarn here.

Charisma Loops and Thread yarn is part of Michaels store brand yarn. If you do not have a local Michaels, you can replace it with another chunky yarn, just be sure to get the correct gauge.

This pattern uses short rows to make the hood. In the pattern I simply tell you how many stitches to knit or purl and to leave the remaining stitches unworked. I have done this so you can follow the pattern as written without using any other short row technique, or you can go ahead and use a technique of your choice. If you want to learn more about short rows, there is a wonderful free class on Craftsy that explains it very well.
