November love :: the crafty edition


yarn for November (by bookgrl)

I’m all about the crafty goodness this month. It’s just starting to get cool(er) down here in the land of the longhorn and I’m loving it. I actually wore a hoodie last night! The mornings have been brisk and clear and knitting finally feels like a worthy pastime, instead of a useless hobby.

First up, 100% philistine made. I am seriously coveting one of these pouches to put my knitting in. My current set-up for bus knitting is a cat-chewed gallon-sized Ziploc freezer bag tucked into my purse. Which, if you ask me, is ever so classy. ‘Cause that’s just the kind of gal I am!

More knitting: b r o o k l y n t w e e d. His photos are swoon-worthy, like this one and these. Handspun, patterns and beautiful photography, oh my!

How About Orange always has something creative and fabulous to brighten my day and I really want this mousepad. Or maybe this one. And her fabric. Oh, and this ribbon. Weiner dogs! With sweaters! On ribbon! I’ll stop drooling now.

You will probably see me working on this sweater in the near future, from Marie Grace Designs. Such a cute, simple sweater and it doesn’t hurt that she has adorable children to photograph her patterns on! See the adorable children in adorable hats that I’ve been wanting to make for a while now. Love!

And now splityarn! (Shop here, blog here.) As if I didn’t have enough things already on my wish list, I totally *need* this camera strap! (That fabric should look familiar…) Good thing Christmas is coming up…

Well, that’s it for this month’s love edition. I’d also like to add that I have officially gone off the deep end by signing up (again) for NaBloPoMo. Again. Again! So you’ll be seeing more of me over the next month! After last year’s abysmal failure, I’m not sure what to expect for this year. I managed to do it in July, but July doesn’t have the frantic pre-holiday rush of November. Or Thanksgiving. Or long dark nights. I love November, don’t get me wrong! I’m just not convinced it’s conducive to daily blogging… We shall see!
