BrambleTINI loose ends

Hello & Welcome to my 47th episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a handicrafter’s round of custom copyright tag(s) for anyone game to knit my designs 🙂

But first, we’re home safe ‘n sound from our road trip! The wedding got off with just one required “hitch” ❤ But then, the internet went down unexpectedly… And it stayed down until long after everyone had returned home :-/ Can you imagine a house full of social networking text-craved adult family left to communicate the old-fashioned way?!? LoL 😉 Fortunately for me, my blog post got published in time… whew! Now several disconnected days later, my inbox again/still/continually runneth seriously over! I’ve managed to at least cover all your lovely comments, ‘though that hasn’t reduced this current cyber-shemozzle by much :-/

One comment—enquiring whether it’d be okay to appliqué my Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart knitting pattern onto handcrafted hats for sale—was actually the inspiration for this post… Thanks again Nancy! In this “what’s yours is mine” world, respect for copyright warms my heart ❤

So now it’s official… Anyone wishing to enhance their items for sale or gifting may use my designs—provided you include a copy of the applicable printable tag(s) provided here by me. As well, I’d love to share pictures of your hearty creations. So please feel free to leave a link in the comments section below to show off your work! 🙂

Shamrockin’ Spring Bracelet ♥ Why wait ’till spring?!?

.
Hey there and happy almost-first-day-of SPRING and St. Patrick’s Day!
For all you crafty, wool-luvin’ knitters who may possibly be wondering
about that Shamrockin’ Spring Bracelet “how to” I promised to you in
my last post… I’ve been busy preparing the graphics/instructions for that!
Oh but… they’re not yet quite ready for your public knitting pleasure :-/

Now begging your pardon, but this project has been delayed due to the early
arrival of mild, spring-like temperatures and rapidly melting snow in our area…
Yup, the rapid melting of snow that’s been blanketing us since November!!!

Unfortunately, this all means I’ve missed my target posting date 😦
Honestly, though, it can be a bit tough to keep my knitting nose to the
blogful grindstone with all this pleasant early spring weather going on!

Fortunately, this all reminds me of when my dad used to say, “Do it now! Why wait ’till spring?”
That’s a good memory, for me 🙂 And to this day, those words have remained in my heart…
Especially with St. Patrick’s Day tomorrow, followed by the date of dad’s last day on earth ♥
I don’t believe luck has anything to do with anything, though would have liked the chance to
have told my dear ol’ dad how his life measured 7 decades + 7 years + 7 months + 7 days long…

Anyhoo…
Thanks for waiting! I’ll be sure to do it now and not wait ’till spring!
To get started now (whilst you wait, sorry) please visit my previous post.
It  describes what you can do to start Shamrockin’ right now.
As well, please click here to enjoy my first Shamrockin’ post 🙂

Last but not least, it’s fun to watch snow melt…
So here is a quick clip, featuring our snowbanks of melting snow 🙂

Shamrockin’ Spring bracelet ♥ Do you felt lucky?

Hey there! Do you feel lucky? St. Patrick’s Day is coming up… The days are getting longer… And SPRING is in the air! Equinox is still over a week away, but half our snow is already melted! And with this weekend’s double-digit +Cº forecast, the rest will soon follow!!! A welcome change, since springtime around here tends to arrive rather late 😀

Some people say shamrocks are “lucky”, but for me they are simply a sweet sign of spring. I’m hoping this post will inspire you to knit ‘n felt my most recent design for a shamrockin’ fun-felted bling bracelet. It will surely have you feeling like spring 🙂

To get started, knit 4 Sweetie♥KNIT♥Hearts from feltable wool—leaving extra-long tails measuring approx 30″/75 cms in length. Sew all 4 of the Sweetie♥KNIT♥Heart points together. Secure all yarn tails on WS (wrong side). Then separate the yarn tail plies.
.

Okay… that’s all for now, but I’ll be back asap with photos demonstrating the rest of this “how to” for you! Then we can all wear handmade shamrockin’ bling this spring!  In the meantime, here’s Cary Grant in a movie clip from “Mr. Lucky” 1943. Watch now, as he demonstrates how real men knit 😉
