Barn Owl Longies

My children love to sketch out designs for me to knit up at some point. Some are kinda crazy and just about impossible to imagine knitting up, but then some are GREAT and just HAVE to be created!!

This is a pair I recently listed on my shop that my oldest daughter designed. She is 10 and has a great eye for it!!

Introducing.......... BARN OWL LONGIES! (Click the link to view them on my shop!)

First is the little designer...


and here is her sketch...


And this is what I came up with when I got my needles clicking... (back view)


and even the front is cute with all the speckles!


Do you have any ideas you'd love to see in longie form? Let me know and I'll see what I can whip up for you!!

Time to knit! Goodbye for now!

My Squeaker's Candy Tree Longies.

My sweet little Squeakie has a new pair of woolies for this Fall/Winter! I finished them today and made sure to do a little photo shoot of her outside in them.

Here they are! I designed the little tree on the back and my 10 year old daughter told me I should add roots and a bird at the top. She's a designer at heart and I know she'll be very active on my shop in the years to come!





I love how she crosses her fingers and ooooh her little "dedos" are so cute!!!

(my brother is a missionary in Guatemala and taught her that "toes" are "dedos" in Spanish. Now if you ask her what they are, she says "day-doe" ~ baby talk melts my heart!)


Squeakie, you are the silliest little girl with the cutest cheeks in town!!! I love you!!


Contest Winner's Budgie Bloomers are DONE!

Back in April, I held a contest called:

Squeakin' Cheeks Needs a Slogan

The winner, Sara M., ended up finding out she was pregnant and asked if I could wait to knit up her longies after she found out what she was having! I thought that was a GREAT idea! (since she has a boy, she was thinking that if this baby was a girl, a fun ruffly pair would be nice!)

She chose her colors (neutral "Sea Holly" and "Wheat") ~ I ordered her wool and set it aside until she was ready!

At the end of September, she found out she was indeed having a Baby Girl, so she contacted me and I got my needles clicking on her Budgie Bloomers!

Here's what her little Miss will be wearing once she is big enough to fit into them! (they are a 16" Waist & Rise and 8" inseam!)


All packaged up and ready to go! Congratulations, Sara & baby GIRL!!!!!!

My Wool in a News Video Clip!

A repeat customer of mine, Jamee, sent me this NEWS CLIP and wrote "your longies are famous!" hehe

She was part of a diapering segment on this local news channel and it's great to see that she teaches others about the wonderful world of cloth diapering!

In this video, you'll see her and her two children (I've knit for them both!) and her little guy is wearing longies that I knit while she was pregnant and then on the table you'll see her newest custom, "Tiger Stripes", over to the right of the cloth diapers! How fun!!


Check out the video here!

Economy stinks: Parents using fewer disposable diapers

Thank you, Jamee, for sharing this with me!!!
