Who me? Ok, ok, ok, soooo I got a special order to make some CO state hats. And I went bonkers for a few days making blue and white hats, with the little CO yellow sun with the red C (for CO) around the yellow, and then stitching them to the hats! Sooo much fun! I’ll have some on the shop this Friday too hopefully! Then that started me making the Elizabeth Zimmermann Maltese Fisherman hat pattern, with of course the CO flag C on it! Which then led me to making another earflap (non CO) hat! THENNNNN….
Yesterday I read on one of my knitting groups about a crocheted (there’s a knitted version too. /squeeeee) Amish Puzzle Ball pattern. OMGOMGOMG!!!! Guess what I have been working on? Yep, Amish Puzzle Balls!!! I don’t know if I can sell these, because every one I make I am like, “OMG it’s soooooo CUTE!!!!”, and I just wanna KEEP them! Now Cassie has started making them too! Between last night and this morning she got four of the cones done, and then I talked her through making the fat skinny part today, and then she stole my stuffin, stole it, I say!!!!! And went and got one ring of her puzzle ball done, and THEN she comes to my desk and steals MY puzzle ball, and pops one of the rings off of mine, and pops hers on!!! So now, I can see selling these in like sets of three, so you can have same color balls, or mix them all up and have multi colored ones…. but of course I can’t part with them yet!!!! First thing every child said when they saw it all put together was, “is it for the cats?” Well… maybe… it could be… if I could ever part with one! LOL Oh, and here’s a video just in case your puzzle ball comes apart, you will be able to pop them back together. You should have seen my kiddo’s faces when I pretended like I had ~Had it up to Here~ and tore mine apart. 😀
So, y’all know where I’ll be. Off in the yarn buckets going, “oooohh that’ll be a good color, and that, and that, and That!” Yeah, it’s what I do.
