Hello friends! I have a new pattern to share with you today…the Frankenstein Coffee Cozy! This pattern is part 2 of a 3 part series of spooky coffee cozy friends!
With Halloween around the corner I thought it would be fun to make a few inspired cozies to go along with the spooky characters and pumpkin spiced lattes of the season. I really enjoyed this project and hope you do too.
It makes for a great stash buster, and can be made with any worsted weight acrylic yarn. For this project I used Michaels brand Loops and Thread Impeccable yarn. The cozy works up quickly and easily and is oh so cute!

Today’s project was a long lost pattern I had made a few months ago, but forgot to post! Better late than never…right?? It was inspired by one of my boss’s cowls that she had worn to work this past winter. It was such a cute shape and a simple enough design that I knew I had to make one for myself! On my way home from work that afternoon I booked it straight to JoAnn’s and bought two wooden buttons and a couple skeins of yarn for good measure (impulse yarn purchase only… I already had what I needed for this. Ha!). [Read more…]

Happy New Year! I can’t believe we said goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 already! The past year went by so fast but I am looking forward to a new year full of yarn, patterns, hooks, and needles.
I have a quick and easy pattern to share with you today. It’s been chilly around here lately, and with this cold weather I find myself stopping at Starbucks on the way home from work more than ever :). The coffee trips inspired me to make these fun and soft cup cozies! [Read more…]
This post is a little different than what I normally share on here but I thought it might be fun to branch out from crochet hooks and yarn to talk about something all of us do everyday, at least 3 times… and that is eat! I always find it interesting to learn how other people meal plan, go about grocery shopping, and favorite go to recipes. Sometimes I get into a slump where cooking at home just seems like too much at the end of a long work day, but right now I am also at the point where no food that I would go out a get would be any better.
Hello again! Today I am sharing with you a pattern to create mini crochet baskets which are totally functional and super cute! I made a couple of them for drawer organizers because lord knows my drawers organizing. Below you can see one that I already put to work in my “nerd” drawer to hold my DS games, but really they could hold anything. I might make up a few in some neutral colors to hold soap in the bathroom or hold jewelry on my nightstand. [Read more…]
