IKEA and Lions

This week I took a break from my normal routine of completing orders and made a new pattern. I usually feel guilty about working on something else when I have so many people waiting on orders, but I couldn't wait to try out this new pattern AND I was dying to get my hands hookin.' I had been eyeing this lion hat pattern for a long time and I finally bought it. I am SO happy with how it turned out. Anne, the lovely photographer that takes pics for me, passed along the picture today and it turned out great!! She said that the hat had her and the mother of this adorable baby laughing the entire time! Check it out:

On another exciting note, I finally made it to IKEA and purchased my long awaited shelf for my abundance of yarn. This sucker is HUGE, but it makes me so very happy! This offers me an insane amount of storage for my crochet materials. Yarn is really an annoying object to store. It gets tangled, knotted, and takes up a lot of space when you have 100+ skeins lying around. On top of the yarn issue, my hooks were everywhere. I will be the first person to say that I lack in the area of organization. I felt that this was the key to organizing my crocheting obsession, and in turn it would make my husband MUCH happier since he wasn't finding yarn all over the house.

DON'T YOU LOVE IT?? The munchkin in front is pretty darn cute too!

Things have continued to be hectic for me, but I have managed to stay on top of my life. I took a little vacay from the crochet business to focus on other areas of my life and I am ready to dive back in! Sorry for those still waiting for orders. I am getting to them as my life allows.

Okay, next post is going to be all about yarn! Brands, weight, where to buy, and my favorite! If you have any questions about yarn that you want me to answer send me your questions!

Pin It!


  1. Yes! I do love it. And, the adorable little babes. :)

  2. Your shelf unit looks awesome! I must admit that IKEA has helped me and my hubby to organize our necessities, too! We absolutely love going there.
