Happy Valentine's Day!

One quick and sappy FO: the beer sweater!

I Surprised the hubby with this this morning and he really liked it! That, or the promise of Guinness to go in it! LOL
This was incredibly easy to make. I did change it a bit. I omitted the sleeves and shortened the neck. I am thinking of making another one in a girly pattern for myself. Maybe lacy.... :) (Should I be looking forward to drinking?)
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!
I will have more items for sale soon. Check out the link on the sidebar for what I have right now!

Swatches for your cell phone

I just love it when inspiration strikes!
These are the new items I will be offering for sale in the next few days. I still need to go over to Lowe's and pick up the O-rings that they will attach to so they can hang from the cell phone attenae.

Starting from top left: pink and orange acrylic in single crochet w/ pink square glass bead, pink and orange acrylic in garter stitch with dark pink oval glass bead, green and teal acrylic in seed stitch with blue glass bead, green and teal acrylic in double crochet with blue glass bead, yellow and white cotton in stockinette and garter stitch with yellow glass bead, and yellow cotton in eyelet stitch with red wooden bead.
I will be charging $5 (including shipping) for each cell phone charm.
I am hoping to make some in the shape of hats and socks and maybe mittens. I still haven't worked it out yet! I am also going to try to crochet some different shapes.
To keep up a variety of colors and fibers, I am also proposing a bit of bartering if anyone is interested. If you have remnants of fingering, laceweight, or sport weight yarn hanging out in your knitting storage, I will be happy to trade with you! Send me ten remnants and I will send you a cell phone charm of your choice! (I will count large remnants over 20-ish yards as two remnants.) Thanks!
