Trio of Wall Hangings

Since moving into my new place, I have been trying to find something to hang over my bed. I looked at a lot of artwork online, but didn't see anything I liked in the very specific colors that I wanted. So what do I do when I can't buy something I want? I make it! Specifically, I knit it, of course. I actually looked into doing something macrame before deciding on knitting. The biggest deciding factor for these wall hangings was the fact that I already had the dowel rods. This made deciding the yarn weight pretty easy. I had to use yarn that would look decent on 4.5mm needles because my dowel rods were about 4mm thick. Narrowing down the yarn weight helped a lot, but there were still many yarn possibilities. I was looking for very specific colors. I spent a lot of time looking at yarn online but was too nervous to buy it in case the color was off. I deciding to check out the yarn store around the corner from where I work, so I could look at the yarn colors in person. Would you b

Mermaid Soap Saver Bag

* When shopping using some of the links provided below, I may benefit from it. I am not paid to advertise these products, I just truly believe in them and the company.  I've recentlly decided to #giveupthebottle and start using bars of soap instead of liquid soap in plastic bottles! When I started researching shampoo, conditioner, and soap bars, one thing became clear - a soap saver bag was necessary to extend the life of my bars. I thought to myself, why buy one when I can just make one? Plastic production has nearly doubled in the last 50 years. Did you know that 18 million pounds of plastic ends up in the ocean every year? Research predicts that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Only 9% of plastic is recycled. Product packaging accounts for about 40% of plastic usage. This plastic never goes away because it is not biodegradable. It may break down into smaller pieces called microplastics, which human and sea creatures then injest. Humans consume an averag

Wild and Free Wall Hanging

I'm not entirely sure where I got the idea for this wall hanging. I had the phrase "wild and free" stuck in my head for a while, and then I decided I should put it on a wall hanging. I also knew exactly who I wanted to give it to. I have a friend from college who is the human form of this phrase. She's not afriad to take that leap of faith and go after her dreams. She marches to the beat of her own drum no matter what anyone else says. And of course, she thrives in nature.  I wanted to make the wall hanging more special than just having the words on there, so I got a little ambitious. At first I was thinking to have one flower on there, but then I thought the flower came out so cute I needed more. I also felt ambitious trying to put a bee on it, but I felt that's what this wallhanging was missing and needed. I spent a lot of time on excel trying to work out the designs of the flowers and the bee. I finally got it as good as I was going to get it, and I hoped the d
