green owl

my sister likes lime green (at least i hope she still does). this little pattern was written by another fellow knitting blogger ~ my knitting basket. her owl coffee cup cozie can be found on her blog for free here. she has a lot of very interesting free patterns but this one caught my eye (and the other 107 ravelers who also knit one.)

being the 107th logged knitter of this pattern has me thinking that i hope someday she runs into someone somewhere... and find that the one thing they have in common is a knit owl coffee cozie.

i changed the pattern up a bit to accommodate the lime green lambs pride bulky by using size 7 needles (for a tight fabric) and only knit 4 owl repeats to fit the mug i chose.

i hope she enjoys it.

happy birthday sarah!

conkerr cancer

hello pillowcases.

if you have not already please visit the conkerr cancer website. who wouldn't want to bring some cheer into a chronically ill child's time in the hospital and what a sweet and simple way to make some thing that might accomplish just that.  it was through craft hopes new campaign to bring awareness to the charity that i found myself at the fabric shop looking for just the right cotton designs, coordinating fabric for the tops and just the right trims.

when i was growing up i had a "special" pillowcase that was made especially for my small stuffed raccoon (his name was rocky). rocky has his own pocket where he slept with me on my pillow.  i decided that i could not make a pillowcase without the pocket for any little ones special stuffed friend or treasure.
