after filling her store window with crocheted glass ornaments for the holidays, sarah had the idea to crochet around plain glass vases and votives. these would be so pretty with flowers, or glowing with a lit candle in them.
anna gave sarah and amy each a set of these knit bangles—a great idea from a magazine. we have used wood bangles found a craft store, but you could use any old bangles you had lying around that need a little makeover. we are working on crocheting a few with the string used on the votives for a more gauze-y look.

we all have many friends these days who are welcoming tiny new family members! during down times we stock up on little gifts for them. this is a pattern from our all time favorite book (debbie bliss essential baby) and we used sublime’s new organic wool yarn—the colors are all so good and cozy. the yarn knits beautifully and almost feels a little bit felted. we packaged these with a cigar for the new dad in one of our old cigar boxes!
these great patterns from have been fun to make and fun to give. super fast, the instructions are great and we learned lots of new tricks. the ellie is our favorite, chubby with a funny nose.
