Super news friends! I opened up a new shop on Shopify, I have new product AND I will be participating in the Craft Lake City Virtual DIY Festival! The corona virus has pushed my business in an unlikely, but welcome direction, but I am so excited about the different opportunities that will open up. Anyway, below are images/links to my new products on Shopify and I hope to see you at the Virtual DIY Festival!
Starry Textured Beanie
A couple of months ago, I created a lovely shawl using pink, mustard and cream colored yarns. I used up all of the pink, but had enough of the yellow and cream to make a beanie. I got to work, searching Pinterest for inspiration and found a brioche beanie using the star stitch. I thought it would be perfect, but I didn't have enough yarn for the brioche technique, so I wrote this pattern. Enjoy!
Hey all! It's been awhile, but I keep getting updates on friends joining the mailing list, so I figure I should post! I really should have posted this about 3 months ago, but you know how life goes... I recently had the pleasure of exhibiting some knitted art at Bountiful Davis Art Center in Bountiful, UT. I had this thought in the back of my head for several years and I finally got up the courage to put my ideas out there! Anyway, click on the read more link below for all of the details.
Hey there! I've been a bit quiet on the blog because I have been working on building my inventory to do some handmade markets. Last week, I did my first market since moving back from Rome. It was The Hive Market SLC/Above the Salt Marketplace. I had the best time! So many friends showed up and the booth I sat next to, Labyrinth Bead Company, were the nicest people! Afterward, I was on such a high from all of the good vibes, I don't think I fell asleep until 4AM!
Nutella Pretzel Cookies
This recipe was born in Italy. Comes as a shock, I know. Basically, while we were there, Nutella was a staple (okay, that is true for when we are living in the States too...). Anyway, I had an urge to bake one night, saw the Nutella sitting next to some pretzels and thought, Nutella is similar to peanut butter, I bet it would make a great cookie.... Low and behold, I was right. Careful, though, eating just one is basically impossible.
Hey there! Remember, some time ago, when I did the Beehive Bazaar? Well, I've been looking to get back into selling my handmade goods and I'm hoping that will happen this Christmas season. I've got a few things in the works, which I will let you in on, but for now, I'll start with some cute little stuffies I've been sewing up.
Textured Bubble Scarf
Soon after returning from Italy, I began to notice "yarn cakes" everywhere. Honestly, I felt like they were calling to me to make something. I just loved the blocks of bright colors and how they melted into each other. Before I knew it, I bought 3 without the faintest idea of what I would make. Then, I saw the perfect stitch on Pinterest and a scarf was born. Since I didn't come up with this stitch I'll tell you how I constructed the scarf but refer you to the original stitch over at MyPicot (which is perhaps the best site for discovering crochet stitches).
Panna Frost Flower Blessing Gown
I made this dress over three years ago for my daughter. Like usual, I couldn't decide on a pattern, so I took the challenge of adapting one to fit what I wanted. This post is more of a guideline of what I did than an actual pattern, mostly because I didn't write out how I made this dress. It was a bit complicated, however, the results were totally worth it!
Light Chicken Pad Thai
Back when I was trying to lose the baby weight from my first kid, I came across this recipe over at Skinny Kitchen and it is one that I keep going back to. This Pad Thai is the ideal dinner for summer because it is so light and tastes so fresh and bright. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Girly Shirt Dress
I'm sad to say that this is a dress I made so long ago, it no longer fits my oldest daughter. Fortunately, I did take some process photos so I will give you as much direction as I remember. In any case, I loved it and I hope you will too.
Hey there! I'm Kristin, aka Kit. Here is just a peek into my crafting mind. I hope you find something to spur your creativity!
