Party Pom pom Garlands!

I'm a little ahead of schedule with this but I just couldn't wait any longer to show you a brand new exciting product I've added to the shop! I now have pom pom garlands for any occasion. I'm imagining these as a great kid's room wall decoration, party photo booth back drop, or a photo shoot prop. Really, whatever you want  to use them for! I only have 6 of them made up right now and have a lot more to go since I'll be selling at two markets this April (more on that later!) But here's a look:

This one's definitely a party garland. Bright cheery colors with a pop of neon. I was thinking a kid's birthday party and once the party's over, it could go up in the bedroom or play room to add a pop of color.

Obviously I was thinking wedding. Different shades of ivory, cream, and white. I added soft ribbons and lace as accents. I also found these pompom strings that go great with the theme of this garland.

I wanted something that was not only for kids and I came up with this. Something about the white/black/neon that makes it pretty cool. 

Again with bright colors but this time a little black. I intentionally avoided white in this instance in order to make it pop against a white wall.

Why should the girls have all the fun? This one reminds me of woodland creatures, foxes, bears, squirrels. Earthy colors  and twine ribbons with a punch of orange is perfect for a nature loving little boy.

Again, I was making this thinking a a new baby boy in his nursery. Soft blue, ivory and grey but with a   touch of orange. Subtle and calming for a brand new baby.

All of these are now up in my etsy shop: Little Knitty Things. However, I'm always up for a custom order to make something special just for your and your special occasion. Please don't hesitate to email me and we can start working on a special piece!

Save the Date!

I promise I have other things to blog about (DIY body scrub, hair color boosters, and lotion bars anyone?) other than my Etsy shop but that'll have to wait just a couple more days. For now, I just want to announce that for those of you in the NYC area, I'll be selling my knits at the Greenpointer's Valentine's Day market! Details below:

I'm pretty excited to step into the market game as it's something I've been wanting to do for a while but never had enough inventory to do so. I'm trying to get some unisex hats made up for adults too so that I have stuff for everyone. Who knows, maybe Little knitty things will expand in the next few months! I do have some ideas stored away but it all takes time to unfold so here's hoping to new & exciting changes! I hope to see some of you there.

New Look!

I gave the shop a little facelift before the Holidays. I think it was more over Thanksgiving actually but you know, I've been  a little busy getting things up, seeing about new yarns for Spring and well, just enjoying the time off! I really like the look of these new pictures and feel that they are exactly the "feel" that I was trying to convey.







I'm obsessed with these scallop hats! But I know they are not for everyone so I'm trying to keep it to a minimum. The little newborn mittens are pretty darn cute too and I think I'm going to expand to baby size as well. I just received a yarn order with bright reds and soft pinks to get into the Valentine's day mood. Don't worry, I have ideas for the boys too! So much to do, so little time! To check out what's new visit the shop!
Thanks everyone for supporting me in this new venture! I'm feeling quite happy about the way it's all going and have high hopes for the future.

Scenes from the road








I give full credit to Sonny for taking these pictures. We drove up to Ottawa, ON last Sunday in the middle of an ice storm. Thankfully it only took us an extra hour or so, making it a full 8 hours to get there. Our way back was a little more relaxed as we made a couple of stops for shopping both outlet and vintage. it might've been a little stressful on the road but I think the scenery made up for it. And considering our alternative would've been dealing with Holiday Airport madness, it was pretty nice to hit the road.
