a quick fix and highly recommended free pattern from peony knits blog. (thank you peony knits)
5 balls rowan holiday in shale
1 hank of louisa harding thalia in #1 (above)
*a quick note about rowan holiday yarn- i choose it because i was looking for something that would work as a substitute that would be comfortable in the texas heat- it is a loose cotton gauze yarn that knits to the same gauge as the pattern.
-added true raglan sleeve shaping
-lengthened by 3 inches in length & 1 inch to the width for a looser fit.
-ended last row (and c/o) of sleeves and body with thalia and added a single crocheted boarder on front sides for contrast.

trucks is a favorite word of my nephew. what can you make on a budget of $4.60 that involves trucks?
lolly pop mold $1.79
lolly pop sticks $1.79
large box of assorted crayons (non-toxic) $0.99
instructions can be found here.
1) the smell of melting crayon is horrible
2) it takes about 9-10 minutes to melt 6 crayons (enough for one mold) stir every 3 minutes.
3) don't freeze to cool- it will leave a white discoloration on the edges.
now if i was opal- this is the bag i would want to be… unfortunately she is sulking. perhaps she knows there is a opal look alike soft and chewable toy sitting above her safe from her hungry paws.
