Noggin Toboggans and an Etsy Shop

In the crafting world, I am first and foremost, a knitter.  For years, the only blogs I followed were knitting blogs and this blog was actually supposed to be mainly about knitting.  So far, I see that there hasn't been one post about something I've knitted.  This is probably because there's just something about Spring and then the 100 degree weather of Summer that just takes all of the knitting life out of me.  But since school has started back and I know that Fall is just around the corner, my knitting fingers have begun to itch and so I've begin to knit.  Since one small family can only have so many hats, scarves and such, I've decided to open an etsy shop.

My shop will contain mostly knitted items in the colder months and a larger mixture of other things (vintage items, sewing, jewelry) in the warmer months.  Right now, I only have two hats (knitted last week) in there, but I've got three more hats that are almost finished and many more inside MY noggin, that are chomping at the bit to come out.

With all of that being said, here is what I've been working on this week.

What've you been up to?  Link back in the comments so I can hop over check you out.

  1. Congratulations on the new shop! I'm loving that first hat. Of course blue is my favorite color. Awesome job!


  2. Love those hats. Plus, the your head for the photos is really cool! Plus, I love your banner art. Plus, did I say I love the hats, LOL! I have a post going in tomorrow (wed) about my friends farm in WA State that produces wool.

  3. I need to check out your hats!

    I wanted to let you know about Atticmag's new linky party - Giveaway Friday! It's a convenient place for bloggers to link their giveaways each week. We've kicked it off with a fantastic giveaway of our own. Five lucky winners will win material to do a backsplash in their homes. Hope to see you there!


  4. The colors on both of those are just fantastic! Congrats on the new shop!
