Progress makes everything worth while….. ( a WIP )

I’m sorry to say that I have no new patterns for you today. My life has completely revolved around my current project.  It’s one of those “this is going to be great! What was I thinking?! Wait, it’s totally working!” types of projects.

It actually started weeks ago. Small, simple, quick enough. And then….. Well I got this brilliant idea at 1:00 a.m. ( yes I know, ideas at one in the morning are very rarely brilliant ). I woke up the next morning still on the “Yes!” high and ran off to the craft store to buy supplies. 

Let’s now fast forward about three weeks. After very many hours of questioning my judgement and sanity level, it has finally shown itself. I’m pleased as punch, it’s working the way it did in my mind!! 

I’m patterning out the entire thing ( which is not helping the time it’s taking ) and will be including it in group or set of patterns for sale. Not much longer, I can see the finish line, getting ready for detail work!

But for now, a sneak peek: 

  

Estimating height is just over a foot tall, once it’s done, I’ll actually take a ruler to it.

The Knee Hugger (a pattern for sale)

I’m absolutely in love with the vintage knee hugger elves. Someday I will own one!! My grandmother has quite a few and my goal is to acquire some of hers. She did just give me her pyrex bowls so I’m thinking asking to have her Christmas decorations is not a good idea…. So, in the mean time I have decided to make one. Here he is!!

IMG_0315.JPG After a lot of brainstorming, a smidge of swearing, and a bit of tears ( not really, or maybe…..) his pattern is complete. It is for sale at my Ravelry store ( buy it! ), link in my bio, and I’m working on mastering linking it straight from here for you!!
