Recently, I went to a triple baby shower, not for triplets, but for three separate soon to be mommies. I decided that I would try my hand at some fabric baby booties and the result is this post. I got the pattern from The Purl Bee (my newest favorite place), which was for some adorable felt booties. With a few modifications, this pattern became great for some left over flannel I had on hand.
I came across this project on Pinterest and knew it had to happen. Paper Matrix is an awesome blog chuck full of printables for a Silhouette Cameo that you weave together to make incredible 3D objects. There are a ton of balloon patterns available; I opted for the scalloped version. The weaving takes a little getting used to, but is so worth it. Plus, for the balloons, there is a YouTube video available.
Probably a year ago or so, I came across the lovely Big Herringbone Cowl by The Purl Bee and was intrigued. I wanted to make it but just really didn't feel like knitting. Then, my amazing friend, Abby or LADY from the NORTH, showed up wearing it and I knew I had to make it. I had some yarn in mind from my stash, however it wasn't quite thick enough and I wasn't sure if I had enough so I modified things a bit. Originally, I was planning for it to be a cowl and started out knitting in the round, but the color changes were going in a diagonal and didn't look too great, so I switched to knitting the herringbone stitch back and forth. Then, once I finished, I just liked it better without the ends connected. I added a little linen stitch bow for a touch of femininity. All in all, I quite like the end result.
You may have noticed that a new post hasn't showed up on my blog since last October. Truth be told, I had so much going on that the blog kind of fell by the way side. One of the reasons for this absence was that I was busy making things for the Christmas Beehive Bazaar last December. I thought I would share how it all turned out. (By the by, if you follow me on Instagram, you may recognize some of the items!)
