The Dukes of Hazzard Shirt



It was my son's birthday and him being a big fan of The Dukes of Hazzard, (the old TV show), I made him up a Dukes of Hazzard shirt.

Getting Ready for the Outfit Along


I don't know if you heard, but Andi from Untangling Knots and Lauren from Ladybird are hosting a sewing/knit along called a Outfit Along or a OAL. Two of my favorite blogging crafters teaming up! Plus motivation of a completed outfit when it's all said and done! Joining this OAL is a no-brainer! (This means you should also join... if you haven't already.)

I'm going with the Myrna cardi pattern and happily received my Miss Babs yarn in the mail on friday. I went with the glorious Squash Blossom. Got to tell you couldn't be happier with this yarn! If you want to feel spoiled buy some of this stuff!

I think for the sewing pattern I'm going to use Cami dress by Pauline Alice. I've had this pattern for ages and need some motivation to start the muslin. Think I'm going to change the skirt though. Maybe go with the pleat option that Lauren mentioned she'll be demonstrating in the sew along.

As you see I got some lemon fabric... ... ... Ooooo a lemon dress for summer... ... ... Oh yeah, its going to be awesome!

A Little Selfless Knitting


A new local yarn store opened up in town and I knitted one of Rebecca Danger's monster chunks, (a free pattern you can download here) as a gift. The yarn store is sponsoring/participating in a collecting knit items for the families affected by the Oso mudslide, and I made some squares for the afghan/blanket project. Feels pretty good to use something I enjoy for others.

My New Safire Cardigan


When I found the fabric for this dress, I snagged up some yarn for a cardi. The yarn is a very nice, vintage, acrylic blend I found at the thrift store.

Sew Dolly Clackett Wrap-up


Well, today is the last day of the Sew Dolly Clackett challenge and I have to say I'll miss it. This is the first dress contest I've participated in and boy did I have fun! I'm still surprised I was able to knock out five dresses and get them posted! Lets see if I can keep the blog momentum up with posting my makes.

A DREIECKE For My Sis


Modeled by Mr. Fabulous Handsomeness

I just finished up the Dreiecke hat, part of a Birthday gift for my sister. I know, I know, not exactly winter hat season! But I've kind of started this tradition of giving my sister a handmade hat on major holidays and the Dreiecke looked fun. (Which it was!)

You're looking at it here in the "unblocked" stage, so you'll have to excuse the wobbliness. (I'm sure wobbliness is a very fancy knitting term... somewhere in the world.)

   I used Wool-Ease in Forest Green Heather and really liked everything about the yarn, the squishiness, the color, plus the machine washable/dryable part. For a knit gift, this is always super important, (at least for me).

Like I said the pattern was fun. I really like the stitch pattern and it was the perfect breather project to stick between bigger projects.
