Morning Projects

I rarely get to sit down and just knit in the morning since I have work and school. This morning, however, I got to stay home and knit away. I got my wisdom teeth out Wednesday, and since I still look like a chipmunk, I've been limited to sleeping, eating pudding, and knitting.

I always have a small amount of yarn left over from knitting my headbands, so I decided to use it all for iPhone sweaters.






Also, I just ordered some lovely business cards! I can't wait to start handing them out!

I had so much fun editing these pictures yesterday!

I also have a new listing on Etsy where you can purchase a custom headband (any color your heart desires!)

Periwinkle and Mustard

I. Can't. Stop. Knitting. These.

I've made about 12 different colors so far. Here are two I recently photographed. These unique colors are very eye-catching. I love accessories that make you stand out from the crowd- and these two headbands definitely do the job!

All the colors will be available on Etsy tomorrow (Hopefully)!

White Knit Headband

All I can say is - prepare for a ridiculous amount of lovely headband pictures next week. I've knit up about ten different gorgeous colors! Along with the headbands, I'm going to sell the pattern!

I also plan to doing a new post on ways to wear headbands (hairstyles, clothes, other accessories, etc.)  so keep an eye out for that!

Gluten-Free Mini Blueberry Pies

Check out my recipe blog to find the latest recipe- Gluten-Free Mini Blueberry Pies

So a few days ago I attempted to make a cobbler. I used a gluten-free flour without looking at the ingredients- which was a big mistake. Have you ever tried garbanzo bean flour? It tastes like death. So I made this cobble and it not only looked amazing but smelled amazing! I dished it up with ice cream, super excited to eat it. I took a big bite AND...it was awful. It was inedible. It tasted like I had made cobbler with a nasty bean crust that overtook all the other flavors. I had added so much sugar- and it didn't do a thing to mask the nasty garbanzo bean flour of death. So I threw out the whole cobbler. And I've been apologizing to my family for days since it took hours to get rid of the bean flavor in our mouths.

SO in an attempt to redeem myself, I made these pies. I took my time and made them with love. They are delicious.

Have you ever had a major baking disaster? I would love to hear!

Wool Headbands

Last night I made this headband and I think it's my favorite one I've ever made. I've made a lot of headbands but I'm just in love with the color, the wool, the cables, and how it fits! I've written down the pattern and I plan on selling these in all different colors. Interesting in one? Let me know! ($18 each - 100% wool headband)

Coolest Tea Party in Time and Space

So I have the greatest friends and for a gift they got me the coolest tea pot ever! Today I was a super nerd and I had a tea party for one involving: tardis tea pot, tardis tea steeper, and of course I wore my galaxy pants. Now if only my tea pot was actually bigger on the inside - I could just drink tea forever!
