“Insert Witty Title Here”

The hubby took me shopping today at JoAnns! I got 5 more balls of crochet cotton, 4 of which are new colors, well, colors that I didn’t have in my stash yet anyway, and 2 necklace stands so I can take better photos of my necklaces. One is black velvet and the other is an off-white weave. I’m hoping to increase my crochet cotton color selection gradually over the next couple of months too. That means I need to make color swatches for the new colors and take better photos for the Shops available thread colors page.

Some friends of mine suggested that I should try my hand at some Steampunkish style necklaces after I did the one with the circle and flower motif a couple of weeks ago. So I think I’m going to look into getting some accessories, like gears/cogs type things and maybe glass pearl beads, to embellish the motifs with. I know a lot of people who are really into Steampunk, so I’m hoping I do this right! I’m not “into” Steampunk myself, but it interests me the more I learn about it, almost to the point that if I had the money, I could probably really get into it. I’ve always been a “Ren Faire” person, especially after working at The Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, MI for over 10yrs with a few different Artisans, so Steampunk wouldn’t be too far off for me LOL

I was also thinking about making pins for removable embellishments for certain necklaces, like my new Lattice & Lace necklace. Ever since I started my Shop, I just keep getting new ideas in my head that need to come out and I really hope people like them.

While I’ve been working on these necklace projects, coming up with new ideas, and getting ready for a (hopefully) big sale on my Facebook Page, I’ve noticed that I’m a bit OCD with numbers. It’s weird. If I’m working on something that has some kind of pattern in it, it has to have odd numbers, especially something to do with 3, 5, or 7, or a multiple of one of those numbers, or the piece doesn’t look right to me. If I’m working in the round, I have to start with either 5 or 7 stitches. When I was making the 2-round Irish Rose for a necklace, the original pattern called for 6 petals, but I had to make 7, because any other way seemed wrong to me. I guess I’m just weird that way.

Anyway, I think I need to get off here and get back to cleaning out the area for my expanding crochet cotton stash 🙂

💚Love those green eyes!💚 Pretty Miss Jade #cat #blackcat #greeneyedblackcat My baby girl, Drusilla MamaKitty. She turned 11yrs old this this year in July. She is the ruler of this house and the Mama of everyone. She can actually say words too, her favorites are “Mom”, “No”, and “Now”. Somewhere I have a video of her talking. She doesn’t talk as often now as she did when she was younger. I wish I had a better pic of her eyes though. She has the prettiest aqua colored eyes. #cat #myfurbaby Faerie Blossom Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers Diamond Tweed Wristwarmers #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetwristwarmers This tank and shawl set are actually from 2 separate patterns that I found on Ravelry. The Wing Span Shawl made in Tunisian Crochet by Oana Oros and the Custom Tank Top Version # 1 by Jane Sharp. I really love them together and they’re both made with Bernat Softee Baby in the Girly Girl colorway. The shawl clip is a Lilla Rose Flexi Clip. #crochet #crochettank #crochetshawl #crochetwrap #notmypatterns Another idea for my bag. It has a single strap that goes across the body. I’ve been using this one and have found a few things I’d like to change in the newer versions. #bymidknightdesigns #crochet #crochetbag #crochetsinglestrapbackpackbag
