Bring-your-own Shopping Bag

These bags are great to stash in the car when you need to pick up some small items on the way home.  They also make a colorful place for stashing balls of yarn & your current project.  😉

The blue bag is spoken for, but the other three acre currently available at $15 each.  If you’d be interested email me at NooneysKnotworks@gmail.com and drop a note here (to make sure I’m aware as quickly as possible).

All cotton bath set

This set came from patterns I found at www.crochetnmore.com.  I’ve changed them around a bit to suit my sensibilities.  🙂  I make them from 100% cotton yarn because the feel is softer on the skin than acrylic yarns.

The mitt has a small pocket on one side to accommodate those little slivers of soap that you never know what to do with once they’re to small to hold onto.  The back scrubber has nubs all over the face to help scrub.

This is one of my favorite go to gifts.  I like to keep a few sets stashed around the house for a last minute gifts.  I’ll package it with a nicely scented soap (or homemade soap if I’ve been particularly crafty) and any other bath type accessories I can find (pumice stone, lotion, bath salts, etc.)

Since these live in damp environments, I do recommend regular washing & thorough drying.

If you’d be interested in a set please contact me at nooneysknotworks@gmail.com.  I usually charge $20 for the pair.

Thanks for looking!

The Jayne Hat

You know it must be love if you’re willing to make something that looks like this for your spouse.  And not only make it, but make 2 so he can send one to a long-lost friend overseas.  And to top it all off I don’t even watch the show that the design of the hat originated from!

So with all that being said, this is the Jayne hat (a.k.a. the cunning hat) from Firefly.  Yes, I know I have too much orange at the bottom.  This particular hat has a few things about it that don’t put it at the top of my list of fun projects.  First of all it’s done all in single crochet (I much prefer double crochet hats because they shape much better).  Second, these 2 particular hats were made with sport weight yarn instead of worsted weight yarn – skinnier yarn means more stitches – more stitches means longer to make.

But I have to admit that one good thing did come from the making of this hat (as I’m still in he middle of the second – hence the In Progress category).  I have discovered that I am actually able to make the fuzzy pom on the top on my own.  I had given up on making them years ago after nearly every attempt I made was on the limp side & had strands of yarn falling out whenever it got moved.

If you’re interested in a pattern, there are several on the internet.  I don’t happen to know where the pattern I used is located (hubby found it for me – probably with a Google search).  If there are any requests, I’ll post my pattern.

Lacy Shells Scarf

This is a scarf I made as a gift and I just love it.  I used a bamboo yarn to make it and it turned out so soft.  The pattern looks so delicate, but it’s actually quite simple.  A little time-consuming maybe, but not difficult at all.

I made a second one with a worsted weight shimmer yarn (standard thickness for yarn) and even with the added chunkiness of the thicker yarn, it still looked very lacy and lady like.  For that particular project I even found a hat using the same shell stitch.  I took a few liberties with the original hat pattern to suit my personal tastes, but it only made a minor difference in the way it looked.  The set looks really great together.  I may end up making one for myself (which is something I rarely do).

If you’d be interested in a scarf, hat or set please contact me at NooneysKnotworks@gmail.com and drop a note here (so I’ll be aware as quickly as possible).  Pricing would depend on which items & what type of yarn would be used for the project.

Thanks for looking!  😀

Granny Square Throws

These are two afghans I made a while back, soon after I caught the crochet bug & figured out what the heck I was doing.  They’re both made using a speed hook (16mm) and two strands of yarn giving it a chunky look.

One is electric blue with blue/lime blend.  I’ve always thought this would be perfect for a college kid.  Not sure why, that’s just the vibe I pick up from it.

The other is hunter green/eggplant and a blend of those two colors & cream.  The edge of this blanket is detailed with a scallop design.  This one has always made me think of having a glass of red in Tuscany.  Again, I’m not sure why.  Just the way it feels to me.

Both blankets are approx 4ft square.  I have them priced at $35 each.  If you’d be interested email me at NooneysKnotworks@gmail.com and drop a note here (to make sure I’m aware as quickly as possible).
