Custom Cowls for the Winter Months

What a wonderful and luxurious way to stay warm this Winter!  Cowls are all the rage right now and I'm making a limited number of custom cowls for those who appreciate handmade goods.  The yarn is an acrylic/wool blend, super soft, chunky and warm.  Here are a few that I've already completed for my most recent customers:

Burnt Orange L/XL

Red Sm/M

Multi-Colored Special XL

Oatmeal Sm/M

Forest Green L/XL

Here's an example of the size difference:

The one on the left is: Large/X-Large and is done in a 'broken' pattern.  The one on the right is: Small/Medium and is done in a 'continuous' pattern.

Other colors available: Black and Brown.  The Multi-Colored Special is on back order so probably won't be back in before the holidays (for those wanting one in time for Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa).  All other colors and variations (if the exact color is not available) are.

Interested in ordering your own customized cowl for the season?  Message me at KnowSewMuchHandmade[at]gmail[dot]com and I will send you further pricing/ordering details.

Be well and stay warm!

Crocheting with my Girls

I've recently learned how to crochet.  Maybe I've been at it for 2 years now?  Maybe three.  Anyway, this is something I want my girls to learn and they're finally interested and able. (smile)

Pretty girl has been doing it for over a year now and decided today she was ready to learn how to crochet in the round.  She wanted to make her doll a hat.  Sweetie-pie has been interested but not quite ready.  At the end of last week, we went to our favorite craft store and found some yarn she just had to have.  She's been working on a basic chain stitch and added single crochet today.

Here a few shots of our progress for today.

Practicing Single Crochet

These are definitely the days I'll miss when they grow up and move into their own lives.

Anything on your needles?  I'd love to see.  Share your link below!

Sewing for and with My Girl

Haven't been here in a long time.
But wanted to share a quick top I whipped up for my girl the other day.
I didn't use a pattern, just pictured it in my head and went for it.

Not bad!!

My girl decided she wanted to make a similar one for her doll....and she did.

So, I've found Pinterest.
And gotten into it.
Such an addictive place.
My hope is that I'll take time to actually MAKE the projects that I've found.
So many neat & cool things.

We'll see....

A boy & a hat

The Boy has been begging me to make him something for awhile now. Although I have made him a couple of things, since he's been a 'big boy' I have not.

Well, here is the lovely knit hat I was able to whip up in a couple of days.  NOW he says it's too itchy.  Go figure.  It's cute, anyway.  I do have plans to make him something in the pattern in something other than wool.

It's a Wrap!

And oh,

(more pics to follow!)

On My Needles

I know you're dying to know, right?!

Well, I'm almost finished with the first leg of a set of legwarmers for my sweetie-pie.
Aren't they cute?  She picked out the yarn.  It's her gift for the holidays this year.
