Crochet Patterns are coming!

Those of you who follow me on Facebook know tha I recently released my very first pattern for sale. I'm not sure how exciting it was for you, but it's something I've been looking forward to for months.

More patterns are coming!

Make sure you're following me on FB so you can be the first to know. BONUS: All patterns are only $1 the first weekend they're in the store.

 

Custom Orders are Fun!

 

 

I was working on these last night - so purrty!

These are a custom order to a lovely lady in southern California who heard about my shop from a friend who was wearing a pair of my big crochet hoops.

Word of mouth is great!  Plus, I've gotten such a great response on instagram (@thebkloop) that I'll be making  more of these - - in more fun colors. But, what colors??

 

Big crochet, Big plans

I've been working on some big projects -- literally.

 

My livingroom in strewn with rope and cotton piping and my forearm is sore. That can only mean one thing: there are going to be some big items in the store soon!

Craft Fairs, Holiday Prep and Forgotten Scarves

Working hard. 

End of summer is basically holiday prep time (it may sound crazy, but once halloween arrives its getting close to the end of prep time). Even though as a consumer I can't deal with seeing holiday decrations for sale at the same time as back-to-school items - when you make, and sell, carefully handmade items, it pays to be prepared.

Quality Control

My little lady -- trying out one of my prototypes -- before I started doing fun knots and things.

Toddlers = Quality Control Department.

Introducing.....

I know you're chomping at the bit to know what I've named my awesome new dress form, and we'll get to that in a moment. First a few pictures of what I've been working on for fall and for the Art and Music festival that's coming up next week.

 

I've been working on about 6 different knots. (There's a whole world of intricit knot tiers out there. It's amazing.) These are Celtic Button Knots.

Crochet Beaded Necklaces and Bracelets

Here's an arial view of a few things I'm working on right now. Care to go in close and take a look? Let's start with the big bowl of fun in the corner.

 

This bowl has the beginnings of my beaded strands restock over at Modern Mouse.  

Crochet Bowls

I am in the middle of some serious bowl making mojo right now.

 

First there were my little trinket holders - how could some thing so functional, be so adorable?

Then yesterday I just posted my new Memory Bowl in the shop.

Small Crochet Bowls

I've been working on a few things, here's a sneak peek:

A New Rug for You

I've been working on something new.

It's a rug.

I could stop now - but I want it to be bigger. I'm thinking 4 feet across.

 

 

yeah. bigger.
