New in the Etsy store is what I call my mini Dr. Who.  It's patterned after the scarf seen in season 12 but not nearly as long.  Small enough to wear on a regular basis or as a cosplay costume part that won't leave you and everyone else at comic con, wizard world, etc tripping over you.  :)  

Also, with winter pretty much over I'm putting everything on sale with a 15% off coupon.  Just use AAWINTERSEND17 at checkout.  

Happy cosplaying.  :)

Happy 2017.  

December was quite a busy month for me with a house full of people, both kids home for a while and hosting the holiday.  2017 for me is the year of the empty nest.  A true empty nest that is.  Both kids are 2000 and 3000 miles away now.  We decided to drive out our son's dog and some of his boxes out to him the day after Christmas as the weather was decent for several days in a row.  That was an ordeal.  On the drive back I finished the latest item for my Etsy Shop.  It's a ribbed cowl using Caron Cakes blended wool yarn in Cookies and Cream color.  

It's rather soft and light yet the ribbing gives it a slight thickness.   This is probably the last item I put in my store for a while.  I have a few baby blankets to make and a blanket for my son's new home.  By 5pm tonight the latest storm should be here so as long as the power holds out I'll be up in my office crocheting and watching Stargate Atlantis on Hulu.  :) 

You ca...

I've added a new infinity scarf in my Etsy shop. The Pumpkin Spice Infinity Scarf.  I love these colors together.  So fall like.  It's a houndstooth pattern and the alternating color carries through each row so there aren't a bunch of connections where the yarn was cut and added which also makes this thick and warm.  I came very close to keeping this on for myself.  :)

My latest item is a delicate lightweight triangle scarf, or mini shawl.   

Also a Black Friday coupon code: AAFREESHIP1130

Perfect for mild weather or as a neck warmer under a jacket.  I used RedHeart's Unforgettable yarn, 100% acrylic in Tealberry.  Another design that I made for my mom as well and she loves hers.  Happy #BlackFriday Shopping!

And in my Etsy store is this new set.  I really liked this hat pattern which I found on littlemonkeyscrochet.com.  I made one for my mom for her birthday and she loves it.  Now we just need some snow.  

The yarn is 20% wool and 80% acrylic and is really lightweight.  It's the new ™Caron Cakes yarn that just came out at Michaels.  I wasn't sure I was going to like it  at first.  The color changes are dramatic and I prefer subtle but the colors go longer than the usual variegated yarns so it has some advantages.

I've turned my Etsy store back on. I went into vacation mode during the month leading up to my daughter's wedding as things were just too crazy and I didn't want to miss any conversations.  It's still winter items but I have at least one finished item that I'll be adding this weekend, it's a light weight pink/purple circle scarf.  I also have a mini Dr. Who scarf that is almost finished.  That item seems to be a favorite as I've sold two so far.  It really is a great cosplay item.  I've been working on some cotton spa cloths and I plan to work on a few baby items after my vacation in July.  My daughter has me working on a mermaid tail blanket so as I've been getting caught up with Game of Thrones I've been crocheting that.  She would choose a design that requires a change of color for each row.  Ah, she's worth it.  :)
