Feel like pretending you are some insane adorable wild creature in the middle of winter, but it’s too cold? FEAR NOT! We have a solution. As usual our solutions are made of yarn. Here it is, The Purple Creature Hat!
We enjoy inventing new creatures as much as celebrating our favorite real life ones. Here is the first of our “Creature Collection.” This hat is super warm, so it is sure to bring play-time back into your winter days.
Crocheted in the round using super soft fuzzy yarn. Purple hat, dark pink ears, and extra long ties. This hat is designed to rest right at your eyebrows for maximum warmth, and creature transformation. Enjoy!
Thought we’ve been slacking? Running in fields of daisies? Singing songs? Playing all the live long day? All the while NOT crafting? Well you’re wrong Mr. and Ms. Fancy Pants! Steff and I have been crafting up a storm at the Green Elevator Head Quarters. While we are dedicated crafters, we’re not so great at taking pictures to prove it. I swear there will be photos to come soon.. really.. I swear!
Some things to look forward to:
Steff has been bouncing between sewing and knitting. Her knit patterns are so complicated my eyes glaze over just looking at her very.. large.. very organized.. chartS. Note the emphasis on the plural. As for sewing, you can all look forward to some awesome aprons coming up. Circle skirts, upcycling, trimmings – They’re so cute it hurts.
I’ve been making a few Amigurumi creatures, experimenting with “plarn”, itty bitty bit of knitting, and brain storming. By brain storming I mean starting 20 differnt things, not really liking them, making my living room look like a grave yard of unfinished yarn creatures. Interesting but not quite the decorating theme I was going for.
Also it looks like we will be teaming up with our good friend and fellow crafter Nissa of Nissa Sue Loves You (link to her Etsy shop on the right) to form a craft coalition! Right now we are in the very serious planning stages (coming up with a cool name), in extreme privacy and secret (in a conversation over our facebook walls), to take over the world (to make crafts)!!!
If the weather is a little less dramatic this weekend we’ll be taking photos of our recent finished works and a few in progress shots to give you a preview of what’s to come. Until then, sleep soundly knowing Green Elevator Industries is alive and well.
