Baby Twisty top beanie pattern (paid)

It's been one heck of a week.. but it is finally done! I love the twisty top beanie so much I wanted to make another one but for the little's in our life.

I started this pattern just after I released the adult hat, I have been sitting on this pattern for a little over a week now. Not that I wanted to but that was the last thing on my mind. As some may know my daughter (my blog post on her illness click here) has been sick since 2014 she was diagnosed with Leukemia and this past week she has been trying to fight off a virus! It had us in the ER 2 times with in 3 days. So I have been trying to tend to her and her brothers that came back from there mom's a week ago. Life in the Williams/Grundy house hold has been a very eventful one at that. Long story short her immune system has been non-existent for 3 weeks now, her counts have been so low that she can't take her chemo (which is everyday orally at home and once a month in clinic). This is her body's way of saying chemo has been to much lately and she needs a break. 
Honestly it breaks my heart, I can't really help. We have done all that we as her parents can do and the rest is up to her little body.  

Today is the day! I am finally able to release it :) I am pretty excited and hope you are too. Holly from Hooked by Holly was kind enough to let me use her cute little boys picture!

Ring around the cup Cozy

It's almost that time of year again.. fall, football season, all fall sports for children and what's going to the practice or game with out your drink? I know I use mine throughout the day and have many different styles of them, some for coffee and some for my iced beverage's! I absolutely love them.

I was sitting out side this morning with my coffee trying to absorb the little bit of sun and the crisp cool air. Today was our second day of 70 degrees and honestly I am not complaining at all! I love the cool air after being in the upper 80's for what seemed to be weeks. I have been having these templates sitting around and really wanted to put them to use (Check below for the link to the cup cozy template). So the first thought was the packers I'm not a fan of football but everyone here in Wisconsin is a die hard packer fan.. seriously.. Im talking Sundays there dressed head to toe in packer gear, when the game starts the stores are empty just about. I LOVE Sunday shopping lol! I thought I would make some cool looking cozys to take to the game for bought beverages or simply sitting at home showing there support to there favorite team. Plus I am in love with the spiral affect of the cozys. It gives it a little edge it also stretches a little to hug cup ;)

The color options are endless, match them to your favorite boots or purse, color coordinate them to your favorite sports team, your children's teams, or you can go funky and use a ton of different colors!

50% off all my patterns in my Ravelry shop!

My fathers Birthday is today (August 8th) and my brothers birthday is August 23rd he would have been 30 this year! My father has been one of my supporters with my crocheting, I am sure if my brother was here he would be too. So I thought this would be a good way to celebrate my 50% off sale. 
Now through AUGUST 31 11:59pm (CST)
 I am still working on getting more patterns listed, I'm still a newbie at this :) but I assure you ALL my paid patterns are tested by multiple people and all sizes that are listed have been tested! I work really hard to keep my paid patterns easy to read so a beginner could even do them!
Every year around my brothers birthday I always talk and reminisce about the good times, the bad times, and what we went through when his passing happened. That will be a whole different blog post! Its quite sappy and this is a celebration :)
