Free pattern will be delayed this week


So I love the Hunger Games. Katniss is the biggest badass since Ayla of the Clan of the Cave Bear. I went to see the movie and avoided the smack down when we called a dude out on singing randomly during the movie. However, the black angry bird I was working on is still not done. I hope to finish it tomorrow. I will post it tomorrow. It’s awesome.

If you are upset, blame Katniss. Be prepared, she’ll kick your ass.


Free Pattern Tuesday – Bacon Scarf



Everyone loves Bacon. Okay they should love Bacon. This Bacon Scarf should make all the Bacon lovers out there happy while keeping them warm and toasty. This pattern should be a little free form so if you don’t know what I am going for, it’s okay. If you get completely flustered, let me know and I will help you as best I can.
