I am not accepting custom requests at this time. I will stock on Hyena Cart as I have openings available.

Run Fox Run on Cestari Fine Merino

I just love this colorway by Teresa from In Stitches. This is the second time I knit up her 'Run Fox, Run' and it was just as much a joy! The Cestari Merino is a nice weight of wool and hard wearing, it'll hold up well. I hope they will be enjoyed!

On the home front we've been busy organizing. I'm blessed with wonderful in-laws who can help us out. Tonight they're taking the boys overnight for a sleep over so I have all day tomorrow to work. Shall I knit or pack? Maybe some of both...

Welcome fall with some fun!

It's fall! Where did summer go? It's a welcome here, it was a hot summer. I'm enjoying a cool breeze through my window right now and it feels so refreshing!

What better way to welcome fall than with a special Woodland-theme stocking!? The girls from iCrave asked me to join them and I couldn't turn them down. The creativity there just hums! You can feel it!

Here's a look at what is going to be offered. There will be a little something for the girls and the boys using wonderful yarn. A couple semi-customs and one set that is ready to go! It's all stocking Friday the 26th at 12p.m. Please join us!

With the amazing Shannon of Flip, Skip, Jump a hand appliqued round neck top,soft sloe shoes, and appliqued t-shirt paired with this gorgeous yarn by Mosaic Moon in the 'Woodland Tale' colorway.

Lauren from Apple Bottom Baby made this perfect round-necked top to match Sugar and Spice Knits "Maple Tree" colorway. I heard Lauren's making a matching diaper in this print too! How adorable!

And lastly I'll custom knit this gorgeous yarn dyed by Kim from Western Sky Knits in the 'Foxes' colorway. There's a matching top to complete the set made by Meagan from Patchwork Pixie. I love this fabric the colorway is inspired from! It's Heather Ross's new line called 'Rabbits and Race-cars'. How precious!

Been a long time waiting...

Dear Samantha,

You, my dear, had faith. You had patience. Now, I am SO pleased to tell you... *drum roll*... that your longies are complete!!! A little back story on Samantha (if you don't mind me sharing...) Samantha had made a post on diaperswappers.com asking about Silver Rainbow - the colorway dyed by Wooly Wonders by Nada. I was getting ready to make a custom order from them (back in March?? April??) I messaged her offering to add on to my custom if she didn't mind the wait. Well! Wait it was!!! The custom took quite some time to get to me and I got a bit busy with more customs during that wait. So thank you, Samantha, for being so patient. I do hope that these will get to be enjoyed for quite some time.

A little funny - I almost sent them with a whoopsie! I knit an extra row of seed stitch at the bottom of the cuff and didn't notice until I took a photo. All fixed now!!! So these will be on their way to you tomorrow!

A couple customs

I finished up a custom order for two longies this week - finally it seems! With this move and selling our home, it's definitely limiting my knitting time. My mother-in-law is coming over today to so generously help me with watching the boys to free me to go through things to eliminate what we are not taking to MT. I'm so thankful!!! But would you know it, I'm feeling pulled to knit and keep moving through the list! September is creeping by quickly and I'm thinking that a couple things promised in Sept might be more like Oct. But I'm trying! You should see the knitting callous I have on my finger! (Is that normal??!)

So here are a couple pairs of Three Irish Girls colorways sent to me by a really sweet customer. The first is the colorway "Adara." What wonderful fall colors! The second is "Maureen." Love how it came out! Thanks for being so patient Amanda!!!

Also on the needles is Wooly Wonders by Nada's "Silver Rainbow." I am in.love with this colorway. I am hoping a little bit that the customer does not like them so we can keep them. :)

I just began another lovely Three Irish Girls colorway, "Nora." I love the colors in this one and am excited to see it work up! And LASTLY (lol) I am working on something for a fall-themed stocking coming up next week. Must finish that and get it out the door asap!

So you can see why I feel like I need to knit while my mom watches the boys!!!

Happy Birthday... to Necessitae!

Come join the celebration on Necessitae for their 3rd birthday celebration on Hyena Cart tomorrow night! I was flabbergasted that Morwenna from Mosaic Moon asked me join them. The perfect yarn jumped to mind when I was considering what I could knit... The "Little Doggies" colorway dyed by Kim of Western Sky Knits!!! It would make the perfect coming home outfit for a sweet newborn boy - dyed on organic Gaia Merino. It is delish! I want to cuddle it to pieces! I will hope that a new mama and papa will enjoy some soft warm cuddles with their new little guy wearing this set. :) I sure got some baby fever knitting these up and considering how small life starts out in this world. You can find it listed for sale tomorrow right here.

Run Fox Run and moving updates

A month and a half ago a charity auction was organized by Amy of Peanutbutter & Ellie Baby who graciously hosted it in her store. I was glad to donate yarn and knitting toward the cause. FINALLY here is the end result. I was cutting it close with finishing these in time before this mama moved. I hope I didn't have you on the edge of your seat too badly mama! ;) Enjoy them for your little man. (If you don't let me know b/c I sure would for my guy!) ;)

So I announced a little while ago that my family was relocating - to Montana! We're getting very excited. I have a lot left to do and hope hope hope to have everything wrapped up before we move. The departure date is *sometime* in the end of October. We want to be there to take the boys trick or treating on Halloween. I'm pumped today though - we got TWO calls for showings. One of the people said "I want to buy it," before even coming in. ??? We'll see! Wish us luck that this goes smooth!
