Hello my awesome readers and friends! The Jessie At Home site is getting some TLC and it may be up and down a bit for the next day or two. This means I will be postponing the 10/3 knit pattern, but it will be worth the wait!! I’m very excited about the new company that will be handling the technical side of my site, they rock! Unfortunately switching these things over causes site outages so please bear with us. Thank you so much.

Remember, there would be no Jessie At Home without YOU, and I appreciate you so very much. ♥ ♥ ♥

handy-caddy-review-from-jessie-at-home

If you’re like me, you have a few crochet hooks and knitting needles. There are those that you love to use the most, and then the others that just kind of hang out for emergency purposes. Now I’ve tried organizing mine so many times, and I keep failing. I’ve ended up with several cases of hooks, but then there are always the hooks that don’t fit in the cases. (more…)

Well, after 4 years of home ownership, we finally renovated Vada’s room. I still need to make the curtains and a few decorative pillows, but otherwise, it’s done! (I may just go to Target and get some cheap curtains for now.)

This is how it all started. Can you see what it will look like?

Easter is coming! So is spring! This year I thought I would welcome the spring with a round up of free crochet patterns for eggs and baskets. That seems to be my theme lately, lots of baskets for all the eggs of my business, so this round up has a bit of a double meaning. Happy crocheting, and remember not to put all your eggs in one basket. 😉

Do you ever wonder how to present your handmade gifts? Well, I have a solution for you! I’ve made a collection of labels that can be printed on regular printer paper, or even on cardstock printer paper. These labels are made to be folded lengthwise, and then wrapped around your handmade items.

There are 4 styles in 3 colors each (solid black, purples, and blues) – that’s 12 labels. Here’s an image that shows the 4 styles, and the colors. (more…)

Unicorn Fibre Yarn Wash & Rinse Review

| Organizing, Review, Stories

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

Hello my friends! I hope you had a fun and safe Halloween weekend!

Today I want to talk to you a bit about Unicorn Fibre and their yarn care line of products. These products are great for blocking your crochet and knit items, as well as cleaning and general care. They also work for cleaning yarnie family heirlooms!

unicorn_fibre_logo_1416462435_11223_1418281059__62448

When I first met the lovely ladies of Unicorn Fibre at the TNNA summer show several months back, my original intention was to share about the Pour Scour with you. Pour Scour is their product that is great for your super dirty jobs. Maybe you have a yellowing baby blanket that has been handed down for generations, a handmade afghan that you inherited from a smoker, your baby sweater that smells like the attic it was stored in, or maybe you spilled your glass of wine or mug of tea or coffee on your current work in progress. Pour Scour is the product you need for these situations! Now, I was planning on giving it a big old testing of all sorts of situations for you, but then plans changed.

As you know if you’re one of my regular readers, there was a bit of a soot disaster in my makeshift basement workroom a a couple months back.

Studio Update

Hello there my blogland friends. I hope your week is starting out well.

Today I have some more studio reno photos for you. Right now the studio is sort of at a holding point. I’m hoping that I can get most of the remaining boxed items cleaned and organized into my new space throughout November. For now, I’m still catching up on all the work that got put on hold while I was renovating.

So here are some pictures, with a bit about each one. I’m pretty happy with it.

Twisted-and-Twirled-Teaser

You know what they say about the best laid plans…

I was planning on sharing all the details on the Twisted and Twirled MCAL / MKAL e~books with you today. However…

There was the home improvement disaster

Followed by the never~ending unplanned studio reno

And my regular blog schedule to keep up, including new patterns every Thursday

Plus my future Sister~In~Law who is marrying Doug’s little brother on Saturday needed me to fix her wedding dress this weekend (pictures after the wedding)…

So…

Something had to give. I have a few more small patterns to finish editing and photographing for the e~books. There will be one e~book for the crochet patterns, and one for the knit patterns. They will have all the patterns I shared with you during the MCAL and MKAL, plus a couple bonus patterns in each that will only be available in the e~books.

I have a lot of fun things to share with you over the next week or two. Keep on stopping by. There is also a spot at the top of the right sidebar where you can enter your email to get a notice of new posts.

Well, happy Monday my friends, have a great week!

This was my couch, post soot. I had just moved a bunch of stuff onto it to sort through. Notice the paper at the bottom right corner of the picture, the black bag is on it. That paper was white and clean before this all happened. (more…)
