Something Old, Something New

Yay! Put up a new background and banner picture on PKmmminty. As I am sure you will notice it says "PKmmminty &". This is my attempt to combine the two entities into one. I like them both independently and it wouldn't feel right to me to combine them and change to one collective name (maybe later on some time) so for now they will run in tandem on blog and twitter but they will only be in one shop which is

I've been thinking about it for a while and I've come up with what I think is a cute idea in honor of breast cancer awareness and research. I am still designing the packaging so pics and information to come because there will be a donation made from the sale of each.

Madison Avenue & Sweet Country Home Wreaths!

A couple of years ago when I really spent a lot of time perfecting my crochet I enjoyed amigurumi and other types of small projects because of the versatility in movement and flow. With knitting you have to be more exact because everything shows. I remembered and still have a couple of little pins that were made years ago by a lady in our church congregation. I liked the wreath but it looked so plain and sort of ugly. I scoured the internet for any and every pattern I could find, there was really next to nothing in the way of crocheted wreath pins. So I started brainstorming because I really wanted to make one but I wanted it to be pretty and attractive. I tried a few times and frogged them, then as they say third times a charm. The third one was completely free handed, just flowed and grew in my hand with no trial or error. I fell in love with it, the end result was not only cute but three dimensional, plush and had a 'real-life' feel to it. I was also pleased with the generous size it turned out to be. I am already working on a troop of them for next year, hopefully they will be available in bulk around the '09 holiday season. Perfect for stocking stuffers or to give as teacher gifts.

So far we only have ornaments of pins, I am hopeing to come up with more variations soon. I'd love any feedback on these, Enjoy!

Bee My Honey Hat in Honey - Small - Ready To Ship

This is one of my favorites! When I first picked up the yarn I knew I wanted it but I wasn't sure what to make with it. It's an alpaca blend that is soft and squishy with a slight halo. It also has an amazing amount of stretch and memory. This particular size is made to fit a child or youth and will stretch to fit an adult with a small head. The pattern can easily be edited to be larger or smaller so don't be afraid to ask!

Feel free to speed up the process by making an Alchemy request!
