Kindle Patterns

Thats right Kindle crochet and knit patterns. I have spent the last few days reading and learning the proper way to format my patterns in Word so they can be put on Amazon for the Kindles. Woohoo. And for those that dont have a Kindle you can download the Kindle reader on your computer even a Mac. I have a Mac and A kindle reader on there. My patterns will have the table of contents so you will be able to go to a certain section. Meaning if you stop working on a pattern then you can go back to where you are. I am hoping to start converting patterns next week. I will be starting with some of my first designs and slowly start adding them to  Like this apple purse. This is one of my favorites happy and smiling. Stay tuned to my blog for my Kindle pattern releases.

Pitbull Beanie

Yup a pitbull beanie. My family saw a hat on FB and thought it would be cool to get a hat that looks like a Pitbull soo. I sat and stared and a picture of a pitbull and here is what I came up with.
I am gonna try and remake the hat then publish the pattern. I thought he turned out quite cute the snout is a wee tricky and I ended up using three different hook sizes to get the effect I wanted. I can be picky when it comes to things lining up. This is the third set of eyes this poor puppy had.  Overall it was fun to make. You can check out my shop to see if I get it published or look me up one Ravelry as AundieMolina and see if it has been added to my shop. If I can make a duplicate the pattern will be released early next week. :)

Hope yall are having a fabulous day.

Happy New Year. Feliz ano Nuevo.......

Happy New Year to all. I just know this is going to be such a wonderful year. 2012 was a year of great changes for me. The biggest being the move from Dallas, Texas to Seattle, Washington. I have learned to make some much warmer items and appreciate being able to find supplies. I have a hard time finding the yarns I used in the south but I will adjust and learn to use new ones.

I have so many ideas for my Etsy shop this year. My very first pattern is one that my son asked for. My boys live in Alabama and are football fans. Soo this child asked me to make him a pair or Elephant Trunks. I can not say I was the happiest camper about it but OMG they are so cute.

I made two different pairs one for each son. The one on the bottom is getting the Alabama A embroidered on the front bottom right leg.

I did take time to write the pattern which you can find here in my etsy shop. Elephant Trunk Pattern

I am so looking forward to the new year and mor fun things to create and design.
