Fun Stuff

Have you ever felt like you were spending more time thinking or reading about creativity than actually being creative?

I was browsing Brooklyn Tweed's Fall Collection of patterns and oh my, quite a few caught my eye. I love the Acadia Cardigan, the Levenwick Cardigan, the Sullivan Cardigan, and the Quinnipiac Cowl. I mean, really I love them all, but these are the three I can actually see myself making. The Perry Cardigan is great too, but I don't think it would be flattering in my current size.

I also found some pretty (and free!) patterns from Blue Sky Alpaca, like the Java Cloche, One-Cable Mitts, and the Zig-Zag Mittens and Hat.

And PurlBee never ceases to amaze me with their beautiful projects, like this baby blanket.

What patterns are making you swoon?


  1. That baby blanket is enticing. Thanks for posting the link.

  2. Great links!

    I came across Sullivan a few weeks ago but am trying to finish up a couple of projects before casting it on. . . I have some Peace Fleece yarn in my stash I am hoping will work but I'll need to do a swatch to see if I can do nupps with it.

    The gift tags came yesterday - thank you so much for sending them and for the nice card!
