Photos from Renegade

Here are some photos from this weekend. Saturday it was rainy and cold and nobody was prepared for that. The die hard fans came out though and keep us in good spirits. Sunday was another story! The park was super busy and we made a lot of sales. The sun was out and tons of friends came to visit. See you in a couple weeks at Hester Street Fair!!!

This super cute ity bity below grabbed two monkeys and couldn't decide which one to keep. In the end she chose the purple one.

Liz brought the girls, (Maura and Anna) and her dog Honey Pie to hang out both days!

Drowning In Monkey Bodies

I had some help with the inventory from Kim and Liz this past week. Here is what it looks like behind me while I'm working. Its like having 50 monkeys on your back. Literally. Watching you... Waiting for you.... to give them arms to grab you and eyes to see you! Scary!

This is Kim making a beautiful hula outfit out of a Corona beer cardboard. How fancy! (she went to art school)

Drawing fun at Etsy Labs!

Monday afternoon, Liz and I took her two girls, Maura and Anna to the Esty Labs to a fun drawing "Make and Meet" with artist Carla Sonheim.
We practiced drawing with our non dominant hands and one line drawings. It was great day and we learned a lot from Carla. We came home with free pins and cool sketchbooks. Thanks Etsy!

OMFG! A coat for Oy!

Ladies and gentleman, may I share with you the world's cutest dog, Oy of Brooklyn. This well behaved little buddy is my friend's Kim and Matt's dog.
During the last fair I did in December, Liz showed me how to make granny squares and we made 100 of them to make 2 little dog coats. One for Oy and one for Pancakes (pictures to come hopefully one day when patty gets less lazy!! Hint hint!)
So we followed this pattern (above) from this adorable sheet with all kind of rediculous looking dog coats on it. It took a really long time to make the two coats but they came out amazing and this little gent looks super in it!!

What! Check me out! I bought 2-1lbs of yarn and went at it. I just crocheted it like it was one big granny square, alternating colors. It took me about a week and a half to finish it just working in the evenings after work and on the weekends. This is one of the bigger accomplishments I've made. I am currently working on another blanket that will be more in the style of the Rosanne afghan, but in more "me" colors; light blue, black and grey. Also, Gizmo is a big fan of the blanket. He helped me make it, then tested it out for me.

Knitted Lace Scarf

I had to share this with you. Liz made this for my mom. Its GORGEOUS!!! Its a knitted lace scarf. Let me know if you want the pattern and I can get it from Liz.


Here is a blue scarf I made by following the pattern that Beck Blue J made up. I stumbled upon her blog the other day and its got lots of cool projects and photos. Its a simple double crochet pattern with a fringe. The pattern is below. Link here to her blog for the actual post.

R1: dc across all chain stitches, 200 dc

R2: chain 4 (counts as turning chain and chain 1), *1 dc, chain 1, skip one dc from previous row, 1 dc in next stitch. Repeat from * across all stitches.

R3-? You can make as many mesh rows as you like here, I made one scarf with 5, another with only 3: begin as R2 to last square, make the final dc in 2nd chain stitch over, leaving 3 chain stitches to act as last dc from previous row.

Last Row: chain 3, dc across all stitches, including the single chain stitches between dc.

Tie off, make fringe.


Here are three of the hats I made last week. The gray and red one for Andy, the blue and grey one for Shawn and the red and white one for Dan.


Hi Everyone!

I will be at Artists&Fleas this weekend, Saturday January 15th. They have moved locations to North 7th between Kent and Wythe. See you there!
