Back last winter my little Schnauzer was shivering with the cold so I whipped up a sweater for him. Which he loved. A little while later there was a call for warm and cozy designs. I submitted several and at the last minute included Scotty's sweater. Wow! was I surprised when it was accepted. Ecstatic in fact. I worked it up in a larger and a smaller size. So look for the book Crochet! Magazine Presents Warm and Cozy Crochet . It will be available soon for fall 2012 on news stands and at Annie's Attic. There are so many great designs that will keep your whole family toasty this winter. They would also make excellent holiday gifts.
Great Morning All. Introducing a new logo that, I have designed for
'My Aunties Yarn Studio'. See at left. I like it a lot. I love calling my design self 'KairNettaS. It is very close to my real name (Karin Annette), but gives me a bit of anonymity. Room to move around in as I work out design ideas to share with you all. I am trying to push myself toward being a business in earnest while letting the artist enjoy the process. I am having the time of my life with this, and must encourage others to stretch their creative branches as well. This is the Scary-est and the coolest thing that I have ever endeavored.
Did you know there is an online fabric printer that will make fabric with your design. Spoonflower.com is an awesome site and they are on Facebook as well. Fabric has been order to be made with this image; to use as lining in the clutches and bags that I will be making from my own designs. Hand made treasures that will be rather one-of-a-kinds, as you know I cant bare to make the same thing twice, so they will all have a little something unique to themselves. How thrilling this all is. I am sure you will love the looks . I hope to have enough made and and the courage to place my babies on Esty soon.
More on the progress later. KairNettaS March 1, 2013 WOW - Am I ever behind on my goal with this. I have some bags made and lined but as for putting them up for sale all I can say is I have let designing for pattern sales and my regular job, get in the way. Look for them there by next week. Pics to take and descriptions to write. KairNettaS
Last evening my little dog kept parking at the back door. When I looked out there was a medium sized rabbit hopping in the back of the yard. As it is only a week until Easter I think he may have been scoping out the neighborhood to see where to hide his Easter eggs. :)
In this picture you can see just a bit of his large white fluffy tail. I wish I had a better shot of that but he thinks he is well hidden and once he did move he was down the alley in a shot.
