    Your work is So so pretty! I crochet..haha..i say that lightly..my one and only "blanket" turned into a triangle . I then stitched up the sides and made a puppy pocket out of it for my couch dog. When she passed away..we buried her in it. She loved it.
    I have a bunch of quilt squares..just not much gumption to sew. My fun project is making old fashion sock monkeys. Been making monkeys for 32 years.

    Okay, I see. If you were selling handspun yarn I would be all over that. I have plenty in my stash as well, but I have a "you can never have enough yarn" complex, so I am pretty much always looking for more.:p I guess you could say I deal with yarn math.

This one is SO soft and squishy! The last one i used part commercial dyed yarn and part my handspun. I mucked up the cables some on it but meh only me knows... and if someone says anything about the cables not matchin.... welp they do not need anything handmade from me lol. Christmas is coming and i get a LOT of hints for hats and socks lol! That is ok though! They are quick and pretty easy. It is big momotonus things that drive me bonkers to knit. Lol. Right now i jave a cowl on my needles and i am sooooooo tired of it. That is how the top hat came to be. I needed a different something. But. The cooler weather makes me be itchy to sew! I have a quilt top that i am wantin to finish up for a special young lady. Maybe next week i will work on it.

    Those look great! I just learned to cable and I was surprised at how simple it actually was for how professional and complicated it ends up looking. I haven't gotten into making hats yet (my hair isn't very conducive to hats), but now I think I'm going to have to.:D

    Where do you get your patterns? Or maybe you don't use a pattern?

    Oh I know what you mean, but it's not only that I get hat hair. It that my hair is so long that I have to have it up whenever I'm working or it gets in my way, usually I have it in a bun. I've taken to wearing warm headbands to at least keep my ears warm.

    Ravelry. It is a community online of knitters, crocheters, spinner, weavers etc. loads of free and purchased patterns! LOVE it!

    Search panta. It is a nice wide headband. My hair is to my waist. I do both headbands and hats. I do not DO cold lol. It makes my back and neck issues worse for me to be cold. So i am always wearin warmies in winter.

    You should set up an etsy shop and sell your yarns/creations!
