The cat butts have been turned into ornaments, been photographed, edited, and finally listed. Whew. I always forget what a process it is to make new items for the shop… it’s definitely more than just making. It’s also totally worth
I wish I could make these faster. I really do. This is the second in the series of tentacles hanging ornaments that will follow this particular style. It reminds me of Van Gogh’s, “The Starry Night.” I think it’s something about the blue yarn. Regardless, it’s kind of awesome.
There is something so completely satisfying about seeing what seemed like a potentially awesome idea turn into a thing that you can hold in your hands… or in this case, hang in your house. I was talking about this tentacle idea at a birthday party back in January, and it must have been meant to be, because the first of my tentacle ornaments is up for sale in both the retail and wholesale shops.
Hand dyed yarn is back in the shop, and everyone over here is doing a happy dance. Okay, it’s just me dancing. I wanted to jump back into dyeing with a bright colorway, and that’s exactly what happened with this one.
Last fall I was playing around with easy to make hand puppets. I was looking for a design that was quick to make and fun to play with. Half of my wish came true.

Here is the newest little set of cat butt ornaments. I’ve been having fun playing with the variegated sock yarn with the solid base colors for these butts. You really never know how it’ll turn out until you are finished. It’s the little things for me… The last set listed had ten cat butt ornaments, so a set of three seemed like a good start for those of you still on the fence about cat butts; especially in your brick and mortar shops. It’s time to really get this cat butt wholesale train moving, and I’m hoping that having more choices will be helpful.
This is my new shawlette. I started crocheting this late, last summer in the hopes that I’d get a piece that I love out of it. It was a good plan. This shawlette has been a staple in my wardrobe this past winter, and I’m looking forward to do some early spring hiking. It’s the perfect size to keep the chill off, and you can wear it many different ways.
