My new scarf

I love skinny scarves and ones that are so long they loop around a couple times. I made this one over the weekend. Super easy just purled the whole thing. Its very warm. I'm getting more comfortable with knitting and I think I am ready to move on to some patterns!

Sparkly Glittery Scented Skull Soap!!!!

I spent all day yesterday making these FANTASTIC soaps!!! They will be available for purchase at the Hester Street Indoor Market that you all will be coming to. Each soap set includes one big skull and three mini skulls. The scents are: peppermint, lavender, sandalwood and eucalyptus. The soap is made from a Shea butter base that I have used before here. The molds are from when we made Sugar Skulls in Maryland for my birthday weekend. My uncle bought them to make real sugar skulls and I have been trying to find other uses for them. The molds are A LOT more effective with the soap because you can see more detail in them than you could with the sugar. Maybe I'll make some chocolates next!!

Balls Deep in Felt

I am trying my hardest to get enough inventory together for the Holiday Market in a couple weeks. The amount of stuff I have to make is more than I have ever made before. Its a little overwhelming but I feel very confident about it which is rare. We have two trash bags full of monkey and sockelphant bodies and last night I made all the felt cut outs for about 50 onesies. Woah. So tonight... more work.

Riddle me this Batman......

The day after Thanksgiving, our friends Josh and Jules came over to play board games, sip aperatifs, and eat leftovers. Jules completely wowed me with this super intricate scarf that Josh's mom had made her. Around this time last year she was sporting another equally amazing scarf from Josh's mom too. I am the picture of jealously again! Check this thing out. It falls beautifully around your neck as the rows varying in length. It is such a cool idea. I have no idea how to make something like this but if any of you out there have any idea I would love to know!!
