Knit Lace Headband

This past week I was in Southern California for a work event and didn't get a whole lot of knitting done while I was there. Work plus homework took over the entire week! I finally got home on Friday night and yesterday did a whole days worth of knitting. I finished the beanie that I was knitting, made a headband, a bow, and a bracelet! The beanie is for my friend Jenna for her birthday that recently passed so I'll get some pictures up when I give it to her (don't want to spoil it!). The bow I'm not sure what I'm going to do with yet so any ideas would be great!

I haven't decided if I want to post the bracelet to Etsy or not just yet, it's cute but it's just a slip on so I think I should make another and make it adjustable with the button.

More Clothes Pin Magnets!

I did get some craft time in but between homework and making some nametags for a work event it wasn't enough (never is right)! Once the nametags are all finished I'll post those too and post a how to make them (so far they are easy but the hard part is coming up).

I love making the clothes pin magnets because they are easy to do and look so great! Plus I really enjoy hand painting them, another theraputic activity for me ha! This set was made partly for St. Patrick's Day and partly for Easter. More will be made for more easter colors like yellow and blue but I only had time to make the pink, purple, and green this weekend. The green ones are my fav! My cat Chainsaw liked watching me make these so much that he rolled in the glitter I was using. He is still sparkley!

Busy Week!

I wish I had something cool and entertaining to post but this week has just been a blur! Work was busy, school was busy, and I was just busy. No time to really knit or do crafty things, which is my release at the end of each day so tomorrow I will be crafting away and will hopefully have some fun things to post. I am testing a knitting beanie pattern for a lovely Etsy knitter PetalKnits so as long as she gives me permission to show off the beanie when it's finished I will post it. I hope I do her pattern justice! I've gotten about an inch done and it's looking pretty darn awesome so far.

Happy friday blogger land and I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Sara out!

Cable Knit Bracelet and Necklace

I've been obsessed with the cable knit recently and this weekend in between homework and cleaning I managed to knit two bracelets and a necklace with the cable look. The necklace originally started out as a headband but as I kept knitting I kept liking the necklace look more and more. The yarn I used really looks great against any color shirt, plus I have enough left over to make a matching headband yet! I got the pattern for the cable knit here at NaomiChaney and just adapted it to work for me. I changed up the button hole a little bit too since the buttons I use are a bit small and slide through the hole that is knit with the pattern. So without further ado here are my most recent knitting creations!

Awesome Blog Posts of the Week!

I haven't done this in a long long long long time and for that I apologize! I have missed some great blog posts and you have too. I could make excuses that I've been busy and yada yada yada but truth is, I've just been lazy when it comes to blogging. No promises that I'll be able to keep this post up forever but I will certainly do better!

Building a Better Blog - Love this post, and part of why I am doing the awesome blog posts of the week again :)
