These are a few of my favorite things

I had planned to have a piratical project for today's post, but we had a bit of a laundry crisis that took up the majority of my day... alas
SO instead today I have new shiny things to show you. For my birthday my mother made me a bag to keep my growing yarn collection in (I have become a yarn junkie, I really have) and a roll case for my hooks, which is awesome because I purchased a whole set of hooks and had nothing to keep them organized.

the fabric came from my grandmother's stock and I find it charming *pet the kitties*

unfortunately my gorgeous Morgan's Mane crochet hook is too long to fit in the roll, so it gets a zebra striped box to itself

And recently a friend who was moving fed my yarn addiction and gave me some. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but it's pretty!

As always (ish) I'm ending with the next Spartan this is number 11 (only 289 to go WOOHOO!) he belongs to a former coworker of mine, Kevin, my coffee ninja from working at the Coffee Beanery in NY, also my favorite person to work with while I was working there. I have so cleverly named the Spartan Kevin, after his (eventual) owner. This little guy is also holding a wee coffee to-go cup (because I couldn't resist) we never will get away from coffee, no matter how hard we try. lol


Hope you like it because I had fun making it!


  1. Great presents!! I love Spartan Kevin...the coffee just makes it the best :-)
    This is goes wonky if I try to post on my google account.

  2. Tiny to go cup of doom!! SQUEEE!!!

  3. Shelley, I'm trying to figure out what to do with yours, since I've already done a coffee. Thoughts? Suggestions?
