Yup, I got two bracelets done today! This was my first attempt at a bracelet that consists of two different styles of beads and I have to say that I'm quite pleased with the outcome. The magenta and tan marble patterns really make this piece pop! Available for $15.
So here's another addition to the recycled denim bracelets. This one is lined with gold colored beads and matching snaps. Sorry for the blurry images. For some reason my camera was terrified of the amount of bling this bracelet possesses. And it's only $10 (slightly less than previous bracelets due to these beads being snagged during a sale!).

So this is my first completed afghan! It's crochet with two yarns at once, making it extra think and warm. It measures roughly 28" wide by 42" long and would make an ideal throw blanket for a small child.
While this blanket is gorgeous, it deserves a home where it will actually get some use... or at least be safe from our cats. To recoup the cost of materials I'm asking just $30.

I wanted to make a scarf that incorporated these three gorgeous shades of yarn. But I'm lazy. I don't want to constantly have to change colors and count rows and weave in ends.
The solution? Take all three yarns, cut each into random lengths and tie them end-to-end. This creates a rustic yet whimsical pattern that has a little extra texture. The best part? No loose ends, literally!
This scarf is about 50" long (plus tassels) and is super soft! It's also light-weight due to the knitting pattern, making it perfect for those cool spring mornings. Just $6!
