A Short Sale: Headbands and Mitts

I have a problem, and I hope you all can help me out. I made some headbands and matching mitts for my first Craft Fair way back in April. However due to a number of factors, we had very low patronage at the fair and I sold only three items. Now I can't sell these headbands and mitts on Etsy because the designer also makes them for sale on there. I however cannot wear all 6 headbands and 3 mitts, so I thought I would have a short sale here on my blog and on my Facebook page.

The price for each headband is $16, and for a pair of mitts is $20. All items are made from top quality yarn. The green, fuchsia, rust red and goldenrod items were knit in Classic Elite Waterlily yarn, the Flame Red headband in Manos del Uruguay Wool Clasica, and the Cadmium Headband and Mitts in Malabrigo Merino Worsted.

Here's the deal I have for you:
Buy 1: 10% off
Buy 2: 15% off
Buy 3: 20% off..... you get the idea.

Below are the pictures of the headbands and mitts. They will make great gifts. If you are interested, please email me at Shipping will be $5.50, and sales tax will be applied for California residents.

Green Lace Headband - $16
Flame Red Lace Headband - $16
Cadmium Lace Headband - $16
Fuchsia Lace Headband - $16
Goldenrod Lace Headband - $16

Rust Lace Headband - $16; Rust Lace Wristers - $20
Goldenrod Lace Wristers - $20
Cadmium Lace Wristers - $20 - SOLD

As I would love to have the sales and feedback ratings on Etsy, I will set up a reserved listing (without pictures) for the items on my Etsy shop with the buyer's name attached, so you can purchase through there. Please let me know if this is a problem and we can work around it. I have one of each item, and I'll give it out on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you all so much for helping me out with this, and have a great rest of the week! 


  1. Oh, I hope your beautiful items get snatched up! They really are gorgeous.

    1. Thank you so much Evelyne. I've had a few nibbles so I'm hopeful. I still need to knit your hat. :)

A new free pattern: Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf v1

Today I have a new pattern for all my knitters out there. It's a very simple pattern that creates a gorgeous, warm shawl, just in time for the cold weather. I actually finished this last year but only got the chance to write it up and put it up now. Here it is, the "Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf". Thanks to my friend Johanna P. for modeling this at work about a year ago!! The pattern has also been added to Ravelry here.

 Wrapped in Clouds Shawl/Scarf

A friend of mine saw a shawl similar to this somewhere and asked me to recreate it. I did my best to imitate the look of the shawl, but I cannot for sure say that it’s the same shawl. I thought I’d share the pattern with anyone who might be interested in a light but warm shawl made by striping thin cotton yarn with bulky single ply wool yarn. Because of the lightness of the bulky wool, this shawl can also be worn as a scarf by wrapping it around your neck. The finished product is classy and elegant for very little wor…

Here is the second thing I designed. It's a very, very simple pattern, but the yarn just added another dimension to the pattern. Enjoy! :)

Nurse Appreciation Scarf 2 - For Sheila
