My Latest & LONGEST Hand Knit Stocking Hat



This is my favorite 
that I've knit so far!

Over 30" long !


I had so much fun knitting this with soft
chunky yarns and a touch of mohair
here and there. 


I've knit it with 2 strands of yarn
so that it's extra soft , thick
& snugly.

I've used shades of denim blues &
hints of purple here and there.



It's a long process but
very enjoyable to me.


If you love this as much as I 
do it's available on my Etsy.

My Knitting Progress


I've started to knit
like crazy again to get
ready for the seasons 
ahead.


I've come a long way
with my knitting in 
just one year.
Knitting this long stocking
hat is my latest challenge.


Hats , scarves, headbands
 &
finger-less gloves.
That's about all I know
how to do so far.

I am really still just a
 beginner and eager to learn
more.






I have heaps of my hats & 
things at my shop for sale.

I was pretty proud of myself 
last year for selling out of just 
about everything I made.

I'm back !


It's good to be back .
It's been a very nice summer & 
I've been doing a little
 bit of everything. 

I've been very busy 
running my shop
 6 days a week and still 
managed to get in some 
creativity along the way.

I was also lucky enough to take a 
couple of great little day trips
to the beach. 


I've been working on these little
art dolls. 
I was totally inspired by another artist 
that I've met on Facebook  in an art group
called 
" The Enchanted Imaginarium "

I call my dolls 
" Enchanted Garden Folks ".
I'm hoping to get some 
time to make a few more soon.



 I've also had fun making 
tons of the little 
art tags.
I sell quite a bit of them in my 
little Main Street shop .
Some of them I really have a hard
time parting with but 
off they go .


These tiny wooden match boxes
are also a cute quick 
project that I've done 
recently.


I've filled a bowl with them &
sell them next to my candle display
in my shop.




These are just really a few of
the things that I've created this 
summer.
I will be posting more soon ,
I promise .
