WhatWeDreamt

Here in Denmark Etsy isn't very known but I learned about it when I lived in Hawai'i for 3 months this fall. I fell in love with  instantly and a month ago I decided to open my own little shop here. It has been so much fun already - it's a great learning experience, it really boosts my creativity to have a potential "audience" for my creations and people on etsy are very supportive and social.
My first plan for my shop was to sell my art here. I make mixed media artwork and sell prints of them here alongside with my original ACEOs. After a few days, however, I decided to list one of my paper owls, too - and it sold the same day! : ) I now have a mix of art prints, ACEOs and paper owls, flying paper elephants and cloud mobiles in my shop - it is perhaps a funny mix but it is very me!
I hope you'll have a look at my art and meet my owls - this is my address:

TESLA
I've had the crafting bug every since I can remember. Growing up I've learned it all, from bead working, to scrap booking, to wood working! Now I want to extend my creations onto you.

Being a twenty year old college student is difficult as it is, but with little to no financial support from my family, living in my own apartment, and having a very restricted schedule making even a part time job nearly impossible. So this is not just a hobby for me. The investment that you make in my products for your home helps to provide for our family. I strive very hard to live debt-free. Even living a very financially conservative lifestyle, it's still difficult to make ends meet.

I picked up crocheting as a way to stick with my diet, as a culinary student I packed on a little more then the freshman 15 (if you catch my drift). Crocheting is a way to keep me distracted long enough not to keep sticking my hand in the back of chips.

I put a lot of time and love into each little animal I create and make sure they are perfect before I send them out to their new home.

Hand Knitted Baby Cardigan Pattern

By Popular Demand!
This is in one size only - takes for ever to figure out other sizes!
For chest 10" - finished measurements about 14"
Sleeve 3"
You will need:
2 balls of a soft yarn that woks with 3.25mm (US 3 Needles)
A button

tension is 25sts and 50 rows for a 4x4 inch square

If you are a beginner you may not understand this pattern - for more experienced knitters, I am sure you will see the 'pattern' of the decrease rows forming the raglan)
I think this was originally a Debbie Bliss pattern i had written down somewhere so please forgive me if there are any mistakes - as i keep saying, I am hopeless at writing down patterns and i just had some notes on a scrap of paper!


Back
cast on 45 sts
knit until back measures 3" ending with a wrong side row
cast off 4 sts at beginning of next 2 rows
leave remaining 37 sts on a spare needle

sleeves (I  knit both at the same time)
cast on 29 sts
K 7 rows
increase:* k3, m1, k to last 4 sts m1, k3
knit 7 rows*
repeat *…

2 needle fingerless gloves

This is an easy pattern that can be adapted according to your skill.
I used worsted weight yarn and US 5 needles.
You need just over 50gms of yarn.
I also found that knitting them both at the same times ensures that they bout turn out the same !

Cast on 42 sts
Knit 20 rows in k2 p2 rib
on the 20th row place markers this way:
k20 place marker, k2, place marker, k20
the 2 sts between the markers will form the increase for the thumb.

Switch to stocking stitch (1 row K - right side- 1 row P - wrong side)
Knit to marker, (20 sts)
knit twice in the next stitch and in the one after that (the sts between the markers)
K20
next row and all wrong side rows, Purl
Knit 20 sts (you have reached the marker)
knit twice in next stitch, K2 (till next marker) and K twice in the stitch before the marker
K20

Continue this way, always increasing a stitch at each marker till you have 16sts between the markers.
k 2 rows then with right side facing, k20, CO 16, k20 (shaping the thumb)
next row, (W side) knit …

An easy shawl pattern

I wrote this as i knitted it so if you find any mistakes let me know!


The cast on sts are the top of the shawl, the cast off will be the bottom. This is a very basic pattern that you can then embellish - i used an eyelet pattern on random rows.(k2tog YO) The first stitches should not be slipped (as i usually do when knitting) but knitted.
You can use any yarn you like with its corresponding needles. there really is no gauge
You can also knit it to any size. Just remember that the final amount of stitches you have will be its width and the number of rows you knit will be the length. You can check that on a swatch and calculate accordingly


Cast on 7 stitches.
Row 1 (RS): k2, yo, k1, yo,place marker k1 place marker, yo, k1, yo, k2.
Row 2 (WS): K2 , P to last 2 sts knit last 2 sts (and on all WS)
Row 3 (RS): k2, yo, k to marker, YO, k1,move marker YO, k to last 2 stitches, YO, k2.
and so on


So to give a quick recap.
The 1st 2 sts of every row are always K followed by YO
Before the 1st marker, there…
