Imaginary Play

One of my very most favorite things about childhood is imaginary play. My daughter, Emma, has an amazing imagination and I am forever attending birthday celebrations and tea parties with her. When Lori of Beneath the Rowan Tree invited me to attend her tea party stocking, I was so excited and knew just what to bring!! A Silly Stripes™ Skirty of course!! I was just peaking at Lori's shop and realized what amazing things Hyena Cart vendors have to offer for a tea party...both imaginary and real.

I hope you will come too!!

Silly Cranky Stripes Monster Booty Pants!

Whew...what a mouthful! But, it's true! Amy Kett of Crankypants goodness and I are going to be collaborating on a super special, ooak pair of woolies.
Amy is fundraising at her son's school to assist in the building of a play scape for the thrid, fourth and fifth grade. As a former elementary school teacher, this is close to my heart as I believe that *each and every child* needs a place to play, exersise and build social skills with their peers during breaks from the school day. The plan looks great and appears to be a very well planned financial expenditure...but, as money does not grow on trees (as we're all too aware) they need a bit of assistance to reach this goal.
This is where we all come in! Amy requested donations for this fundraiser, and she and I have come up with something pretty special. You'll have to use your imagination to picture it, but....after the winner of the lotto chooses four colors, Amy is going to knit a Monster Booty then send it off to me to Silly Stripe the legs! I am very excited to see these *Silly Cranky Stripes Monster Booty Pants*!

For inspiration.....

Check out this great fundraiser now...there is only one day left!

Capris~Manpris~and a Guest Spot!

I am thrilled to announce that the wonderful ladies of Universal Mama on Hyena Cart invited me to stock with them next week! They are *amazing* artisans and I am honored to have been asked!'s a peek of my offerings for this stocking. I have always secretly wished for twin babies. I wanted to make woolies that "match" but not exactly. Here's what I came up with. Orange, green, blue and a natural....brown for one, cream for the other.

Please join me, along with the artisans of UM next Monday at 10PM HC time. :)

Silly Stripes™ and Elliebelly Crayon?

Yes!! It is true! Joyce at Elliebelly invited me to guest at her crayon party on May 7th. I am really excited at the prospect of working her special Melted Crayon stripe set into special Silly Stripes™! Look at this beautiful yarn set...

The best part...there is so much yardage here that depending upon sizing, I can work two pair for twins, siblings or buddies. :) The purchaser of this set may choose to have Joyce send this lovely yarn to me so we can create perfect Melted Crayon Silly Stripes™ together. It is a guaranteed custom slot with purchase of the yarn set.

Don't miss Joyce's Crayon's sure to be colorful!!
