Free Pattern

I was having fun playing with the Mini Mochi Yarn from Crystal Palace. The yarn was named for the owner's cat, Mochi. :-) So I thought it would be humorous to make a "people" collar instead of a cat collar, and asked my good friend, Karen, to model it. :-) Click here for the free pattern.

Making progress!

I made a mistake in my numbers and made the first Mochi Eyes socks (with CP's Mini Mochi yarn) WAY too big, so I frogged it and started again. It's taking shape!!

Christmas Ornament

At the FatQuarters (Grove City OH) Guild meeting on Tuesday evening, everyone was given an ornament to make! They are SO cute. They were designed to be embroidered, preferably the buttonhole stitch, but I was in a hurry, so I used some of the quilting sts on my machine. And then glued a star to the center.

Mini Mochi

I'm playing with the new Mini Mochi from Crystal Palace. I really like it! It's so soft and makes up so cool. It's a single ply, self-striping yarn that comes in some vibrant colors! I'm so excited. When I get the socks done, I want to make a "hugger" (half choker/half collar), I think. And I'm using new bamboo circs from Crystal Palace instead of Clover. I like the CP ones better!!!
