Warm Up Quick Infinity Scarf

Hey everyone! Is it chilly where you are? It's freezing here! Like literally! We've had weeks at a time that it hasn't gotten above 32 degrees! (Or zero for those of you that use Celsius). 

I suddenly realized that I didn't have scarves for me or my girls! I usually donate the ones we used the previous winter when it starts to warm up so that someone else can stay warm and I'm not packing away things I will never find again or use. Somehow winter hit this year and I wasn't ready for it! Haha! Long story short, we all needed scarves and we needed them FAST! 

This infinity scarf works up so quickly and because of the bulky yarn it is also soft and warm. It makes a great last minute gift and because of the simple stitches it's a good gender neutral pattern. Also, because it works up so quickly, it's easy to make it in every color and expand your accessory wardrobe! I hope you enjoy it!

I'm Back!!!

You guys!!!! I am so so so excited about this! I have missed designing so much and really I have missed talking yarn with all my friends!
So much has happened over this last year. The biggest news of all being - our family grew by one! We now have our first little boy!

He is the happiest baby - seriously never stops smiling! {Unless he's poopy.... hahaha!} He is content in almost every situation, loves his sisters and daddy. {He loves me too but that's a given - I make the food! Hahaha!} We had some pretty serious jaundice concerns with him the first couple months but now there is no stopping him. He is growing too fast! He has made our life more complete then I ever thought it could be. I never knew what I was missing not having a boy!

I am so excited to get a new free pattern out to you! It's in the works right now and almost done!

How to - Wind a Hank Into a Ball Without a Ball Winder or a Swift

Don't you just love all the lovely hanks you can find all over the internet! I love that so many moms have found ways to work from home and the yummy yarn that they spin and dye just makes me drool!!!!! BUT if you don't have a swift and a ball winder to wind the hanks into cakes then you can have a serious mess on your hands! Knotted, tangled yarn messes are avoided at all costs around this house! GAH!!! They take forever to fix!

I have a yarn ball winder and my 4 yr old makes a pretty good swift but sometimes the situation isn't perfect to wind up an entire hank. We were outside the other day, I was crocheting, my girls were playing and I ran out of yarn. I needed to wind up the next hank but no one was really in a "sit still and help mom" mood and honestly I was comfortable enough that I didn't want to get up and walk in the house and wind up the hank anyway, but I DID want to keep crocheting - dilema!

Salted Caramel Delight Shake

It has been soooooo hot here lately! We definitely need a cool down treat! How about you?
A couple months back I had a friend mention on fb that she had just made a salted caramel shake for dessert. Needless to say - and she had my attention!! Ingredients? Time? Delicious-ness rating from 1 to sugar coma? Mmmmm I had to try it! She listed all the ingredients but couldn't remember exactly how much of what she used because she would add a little more of something till it was just right.

Well I played around with it a little bit until I found the perfect concoction for us - The Salted Caramel Delight Shake. I really hope you like it too! It's basically only the best dessert you will ever have. True story!

This is seriously one of my absolute favorite treats. It is so quick to make and perfect for a cool down on a warm summer evening. Just the right amount of sweet and salty this Salted Caramel Delight Shake recipe will hit the spot!

Here you go!
