Back to School Sale…

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but we’re a house of educators. My husband teaches technology for grades K-5 and I teach freshman composition at the university where I’m working on my PhD. For as long as I can remember, I have LOVED back to school sales. Yes, I was the nerd who couldn’t wait to get new pens, pencils, notebooks, and crayons. Even though our son is too young for school, I still grabbed a couple boxes of crayons and some glue for our at home learning sessions, plus some notebooks and pens for me. I’m seriously addicted to buying new notebooks. I should take a picture of my collection one day.

Anyway, now that I crochet all the back to school sales remind me that fall is indeed coming and that means busy season for all the yarn lovers. I decided to prepare for the busy season with a back to school sale of my own. I recently uploaded tons of new custom options to Etsy and all you have to do is use coupon BTS2014 at checkout to save 15%. I haven’t decided when to end the sale, but I’m thinking August 1st will be the last day. I know it might seem early, but handmade purchases take time and if you order now you’ll have your items in time for fall.

If you’re a football fan, I recommend checking out the team spirit cowl or purchasing the color block bulky cowl and headband set in your favorite team’s colors.

Wine Totes and Chain Scarves: In the Shop

Now that things are calming down I’ve finally had some time to start working on my Etsy shop again. This afternoon I added chain scarves and wine totes as new custom options.


Wine totes come in your choice of off white, yellow, red, and sage. They are made from 100% cotton yarn, which makes them very sturdy and able to withstand cool liquids. If you’re going to a vineyard or want to give a hostess gift, these tote bags are perfect. Plus, they’re only $17 (plus shipping) and you can’t beat that price.



I am all about accessories and scarves are one of my favorite accessories. I always miss them once the cold weather breaks and the sun peeks out. These lightweight chain scarves are perfect for spring and early summer, and will look great with pair of jeans and t-shirt. If you’re looking to add a pop of color to your outfit, a chain scarf is perfect. They come in a variety of colors, so be sure to check out the listing for more information.
