mittens, pompoms, and beads

Click here to get the pattern for my mitten above.
And for the pompom, I know that Martha Stewart's
website shows how to do the pompom but I learned
how to do it from a magazine. I just used my fingers
instead of buying a pompom maker
at a craft store.

And above is the back of the mitten.
My friend Casey helped me figure out
how to weave the pompom into the mitten.

And this is my latest necklace. i found some
deals at Michael's and Hobby Lobby.

IKEA blanket

i started this blanket maybe 6 months ago. i got the idea from a blanket i saw on the IKEA website. below i added a picture of what it looks like on IKEA. obviously i couldn't find the exact colors at walmart and this is an angled picture so all the stripes are actually the same size.
