patience pays off...


i have a very very patient boy. especially considering he's only 4! as you all know it's been crazy for me the last month or so of constant knitting. preparing for the summer market, and now that fall is literally just around the corner... it's about to get even more crazy....




every time he sees something new for the booth, he asks if it's for him... sweet boy... so i decided it's time he gets a little something. he has a ton of stuffies... remember? haha but that doesn't stop him from wanting another one.
iris by rebecca danger has been a new monster added to the booth. and owen looooves this monster...


so yesterday we went to the yarn store. and i splurged. we got one skein. owen picked the colour.... and i think this will be a fantastic iris!

yes. this is malabrigo yarn. for. a. toy. i know. but he's worth it. i promise to show you soon.

what do you have up for today? any early christmas knitters out there? xo

  4. Isn't it hard to always say "no, this is for someone else"? I think that's the sentiment behind 'the shoemaker's children go bare'

    And I too like the yarn.
