These little piggies are cell phone holders. I saw them on two different blogs and thought I would try to copy them. Apparently they are in the Stitch and Bitch Nation book as an IPod holder. I made one out of Red Heart Baby Clouds and the other is out of LionBrand Velvet Spun. The example I saw can be found here
They are so cute. The buttons I found at Joanne's Fabric store along with the giant snap for the closure. I am going to make another for a birthday present. They really make up quick.


Granny squares made out of Janlynn Floss. The top row is done in solids and the bottom two rows are done in ombre. The pattern is from an Annie's Attic: The Ultimate Book of Miniature Doilies. When put together they make a lovely coaster. Now to join them.


The Knifty Knitter

I purchased this Knifty Knitter and wondered what I could make with it. It took me awhile to figure out the 4 peg knitting tool and thought that if I could figure out the small one, I could work with the big ones.
Here is what I did with the blue loom. I ended up with a baby hat made out of pink Red Heart Baby Clouds.
My next attempt was with a skein of wool I had purchased with the intention of felting. I doubled it and used the blue loom again. I crocheted a bottom and attached it to the the knitted tube. I crocheted around the top and added the loop. The red flower was made with some other wool I bught to make a purse. It reminds me of an eyeglass holder that someone gave me with a key ring on it. I am not sure how I am going to use this, but I am very happy with the results.

This is a hat I made with the Knifty Knitter. I got the pattern from The Loom Knitting Designs site.



I made these flowers using #10 cotton thread, #3 microfiber thread, curling ribbon and embroidery floss. I haven't found a use for them yet, but there are now part of a collection that is growing.


Another hat

Here is another hat I made with Caron's One Pound skein. This one is being modeled by my youngest son Jake. Unfortunatly he had to cut his long hair when school started. This hat looked better on him when his hair was long..


This is what I did with my August YOTMC selection

This was August's selection. The only other yarn I added to the eyeglass case was some varigated cotton at the bottom. I am so excited for September's yarn to arrive. Check out this site if you are interested. Yarn of the Month Club
