Curious: Handmade Lotion

I experimented with making lotion today. I think it turned out well. I was a recipe specifically for stretch marks but it feels like a nice thick lotion that could be used all over. My Pinterest Homemade Beauty board has the link to the recipe I used. Here is the original recipe I halved the […]

Curiosity 12: Snowflakes

I have been making hexipuff snowflakes that are cute and fairly simple to do. I can’t show them all, because some of them are secrets, but here is a sneak peek. I really enjoyed making a these. They combine crochet and knitting but the crochet is simple and if you have made one or two […]

Curiosity 11: Pumpkins!

Fall is definitely in the air here. The mornings are chilly and the afternoons are warm. I couldn’t resist knitting up a tiny pumpkin to go with our real pumpkins. I followed this pattern with a few modifications (Itty Bitty Pumpkin on Ravelry). I used fingering weight yarn and a size 1 US, 2.25mm needle, […]

Curiosity 10: More Hand Dyed Mini Skeins

This is a combination of Turquoise, Brown and Pink. I really, really like this combo and plan to dye more of this.   This is turquoise, brown, orange and green. This is a ‘witchy’ color, it will self striped acid green and dark purple.   Here is some of the yarn I dyed knit up. […]

Curiosity 8: Miniature Tea Set

I recently went to the local swap meet that is held every weekend at the fair grounds. There were many different vendors with everything from shoes and cell phone cases to old books and tools. After two hours in the sun and wind I managed to find this tiny little treasure for just a few […]

Curiosity 7: Hexipuffs

Here are my first completed hexipuffs. These are super quick to knit up, but to make a substantial sized blanket you need a number I’m not willing to think about. It’s a lot. This is going to be my on the go, don’t have to think, knitting. The pattern to make a plain hexipuff is […]

Curiosity 6: Owl Bag

I recently decided to knit this little owl bag. It is a free pattern on Ravelry and only took a few hours to finish. I knit the colored portions from yarn I dyed (see this post). I am really pleased with the results and how the yarn knit up. I am planning more dyeing experiments […]

Curiosity 5: Fairy Garden Sign

I found this awesome tutorial on how to make a cool fairy garden sign. I really want to make one of these for my yard. We have done a lot of work this summer to the back yard and it sort of looks like a real yard now (instead of a weed forest!) so it […]

Curiosity 4: Hand Painted Tea Cups

I recently found some neat looking white tea cups at Goodwill. I like to go to thrift stores and look for interesting things. I also look for specific things when I  got to thrift stores. I think it helps to have an idea of items you like/want when you go to thrift stores. You may […]
