another cubby update

 

Good news! The rings and earrings sold well, so I spent the past weekend making more :D

Amongst the new things that I tried, my favourite is the nest ring. A friend gave me a large bag of scrap yarn and I found this lush green yarn in it. Thought it would make a nice cozy spring nest.

 

Reminds me of the green nest in this game that Mike has been playing, called Tiny Wings.

And then there was the coral ring, with a sparkly button in the centre.

 

These aren’t for the shop, I made them for my brother and sister-in-law because they moved to a new home :D and they love wearing buttons.

 

But they inspired the idea for this ocean love necklace.

 

The updated cubby! :D

 

On a crochet-related note, I started on this pullover from Vogue Crochet! (I was so excited when the issue came out :D)

 

Ah, kind of a small picture, but if you click on it it will bring you to the page where you can view a larger image. 

I got confused by stitch count for the first pattern row because I was watching an especially exciting episode of Grimm at the same time, so I’ll have to start over. But isn’t it beautiful? I like it.

 

Have a happy Thursday!

  1. Oh my goodness, that little nest ring is pretty darn special. And I notice you have some crocheted earrings in your cubby. Did you post about those previously or are they a new creation?

  2. the crocheted earrings are new :D i made similar designs with the rings before, thought i’d try the same with earrings!

  3. Love all your work :) And it is cool to discover you are a Grimm fan, too! I think the final episode was great, too — left a lot of questions!!

  4. Great new pieces! And I can’t wait to start something from the Vogue Knitting Crochet mag, too! It’s been 19 years since their last dedicated issue, can you believe that?!? Now … to decide WHAT to make??? ;)

    I’m glad your cubby sales are going well!

  5. vogue patterns are gorgeous. wish i know how to knit better, or wish they come up with the crochet editions more often!

  6. started watching mid-season! i didn’t realize it was the season finale, was looking forward to finding out more about nick’s mother next week! now i have to wait till next season…
