Snowtracks Cap and Scarf Custom Order

Recently I had a custom order request for the Snowtracks Cap and Scarf that I have in my Etsy shop with a few modifications.  I thought others would be interested to see the finished hat and scarf so here they are.  (Sorry about the dark picture.  The weather hasn't been cooperating lately and this was about the best lighting I could get before I shipped them out.)

The customer requested 100% wool with the cap in red with a rolled-up brim and the scarf in natural.  I had quite the time trying to find a reasonably-priced wool yarn that came in both red and natural.  What I found and ended up using is Patons Classic Wool.  I used 1 ball in Bright Red for the hat and about 1 1/2 balls in Aran for the scarf.

If you'd like to make these yourself you can find the Snowtracks Cap pattern here and the Snowtracks Scarf pattern on my blog here.  I also welcome custom orders.  If you'd like either the cap, scarf, or both made for you please contact me and I'll be happy to work with you to create something beautiful for you.  These make great gifts!  Be sure to order early, since the busy (or should I say *crazy*) Holiday crafting season is starting. :)

Kaitlyn's Tunic Sweater Finished

After putting my daughter's tunic sweater down for a while to work on some other projects, I finally picked it up again and finished it yesterday!  Yeah! 

I think it turned out really cute and she loves it!  In fact, she wore it to Sunday School right after it was finished.  If you'd like to make one yourself, you can find the pattern on the Caron yarn website here.  If you'd like one made for you please contact me.  I'll be happy to work with you to create a beautiful sweater for the lovely girl in your life!
