A whole bunch o' scarves added to my Etsy!

So I decided I would go ahead & try to sell all of the scarves I had knit on Etsy...why not? I can always make more for myself! Modeled by me & my gorgeous man ♥

Haha, poor Will was all squinting into the sun. He doesn't have big ass shades like I do!

I also embroidered a cute little baby shirt. I had tried a onesie but it was a total fail. I had tried to embroider using all 6 strands & I think that was a problem. I also was trying to embroider on a very poor quality cheap ass onesie (yeah, I'm blaming the onesie too!) So I tried the t-shirt using just 3 strands & that worked sooo much better! Brook, what's your secret?!

God, having onesies & the tiniest of baby t-shirts is NOT a good idea in our house! The whole time I'm looking at them thinking, "Awwww...we should...maybe...nooooo not yet!" Haha!
I've done a few things already with brass knuckles but I just love them!

So one of my friends wants me to stitch an apron for her & I'm so excited! I think it's gonna turn out really really cute. I'm not sure what exactly I want to stitch on it, but I've got plenty of ideas! I'm also going to be making some wine-themed towels for my mom soon. Blech, I hate wine but she loves it! I got the pattern for that from Aunt Martha's Wine Country transfers. Looks like I'll be busy for a little bit!

I know that you do more cross stitch than knitting, but have you checked out Ravelry. It's a community of knitters and crocheters.....lots of fun :) Thanks for the birthday wishes.

I love that green scarf! It is so hard to get use to you with blonde hair.

As a complete aside, because Will is a hairy monkey, you should check out this instructable for future reference..! :)
