Ah, Valentine’s Day. The day we profess our love for one another, or at the very least, let each other know that we’re kind of special to each other. This year I thought I’d throw my hat into the Valentine’s Day madness and offer some of my own valentines for sale. Cat people and pug owners need Valentine’s Day love too, and a cat butt or pug butt keychain could be the best way to express your feelings for them.
This poncho design was the most challenging piece of 2017. The math involved was insanity at best, for someone who has not been in a math class for over 20 years. There were probably almost the same amount of rows
Is there such a thing as a cat butt colorway? (I have a new cat butt colorway. That’s why I was asking.) This is the Dark Rainbow Cat Butt Collection, and it’s freakin’ fabulous. Here’s what you need to know:

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. The puppets were so fun to play with… still took forever. The cost effectiveness of my new puppets was silly and after figuring out a cute one-eyed version, I wanted to elaborate on the design and get a crochet pattern out.
