Drying!
Going out for janaya for her little guy, as soon as they are done drying... These took a little more time than normal because of all the stripes, which I think I am still getting used to... but I wanted to make them even and perfect. I love the way these colors look together! They are almost the same shades as Milo's longies. :]

For Sale
These beautiful Shaba longies are still available for sale! I made them as an in-stock item for The Muses and they never sold. They are a medium-long. Waist is 20", Rise is 19", inseam is 9". BUT I am perfectly happy to lengthen or shorten these for your babe, you just choose what. They can be shorties, ruffly capris, longer longies with a contrasting trim, pretty much anything your heart desires!

Howdy!
Just a couple of notes:

I have a Flickr account now, mostly for Ewe Hooker stuff. You can browse the Ewe Hooker gallery here.

If you are on Ravelry, my name is exxon23 over there. I have all of my projects on there, both personal and EH, and I sometimes post "in-progress" pictures if you are into that sort of thing. I have a lot of fun with that site. Take a peek when you're on there next and you can also look at some of my personal projects and stuff that aren't necessarily soakers. :]

Also, if you have any pictures of your kidlets sporting their Ewe Hooker wares, please please pleeease show me! I absolutely die over seeing happy customers wearing things that I made. It really, really makes me happy!

Alrighty folks, back to hooking! ;D

Little Brother
Here are Jonah's longies, so he can coordinate with his big bro. Baku Black peace fleece trimmed in Shaba Green peace fleece. I love this combination!

Up next is a pair of sweet capris for a brand new baby girl, in Baghdad Blue and Perestroika Pink. I can't wait to work with these colors!

going out tomorrow for backwardslight
This is the first installment in a set of 2 pairs of longies - one for a big brother (who is VERY tall!) and one for his little bro who seems like he was just born yesterday. *sniff* They are both done in Baku Black peace fleece, each with different colors for trim.

Noah's, shown here, are trimmed in Baltic Blue (probably my favorite Peace Fleece blue... it is very rich and royal!). Jonah's pants are still in progress at the moment.

Our weather here has been icky lately so when I took this picture the lighting was not so great. :[ Now they are packaged up and ready to go, though, so I will have to look forward to some action shots!

waiting list
I think I am going to call this a waiting list, not like I enjoy making people wait, but I think it makes more sense because I have the person on the list and then the actual transaction kicks into gear after a small waiting period. Basically after the yarn comes, measurements are taken, and deposit is paid, then they are started. that is how I have found it has been working for me. I hope this works for you guys. I am really hoping to shave down the turnaround time. My first batch of customs have taken for freaking ever because I still don't really know what I'm doing as far as the WAHM thing and the balancing of time has been very tricky. :[ Because of how it's been dragging I've been trying to give better prices just to compensate for that. Then once I get my actual turnaround time nice and efficient then my "real" prices will be kicking in. I hope that makes sense and seems fair!

So here is the customs/"wait" list as it currently stands:

1. SD - granny square madness (in progress)
2. AW - winter wool for brothers (one pair done and mailed, second pair drying)
3. AS - baghdad blue/perestroika pink longies (yarn is here, will be in progress shortly)
4. JA - baltic blue longies (have yarn, need measurements)

Milo's longies
These are for a very special friend of mine. Well, technically they're for her son. But a lot of love went into these. A lot of math went into them, too, to make the stripes perfect!

teal + lime = happinessCollapse )

fancy longies for Hazel
These were a special order from my dear friend wyckhurst for her littlest one. The design was her invention and I just made it work into a pair of longies!
These are done in Kamchatka Seamoss (teal) and Chickie Masla (yellow) Peace Fleece. Like Suzanne said, these colors are born to be together!

Customs updates
Here is the current customs list w/ updates! If you need your items done in Peace Fleece in a color I don't have (inventory to follow), let me know and I will be happy to order it. Since my slots are taken for the time being I won't take any more orders for customs and instead I will just work with the folks on the current list. I'm always happy to keep someone on a wait list, though! Just email me at erinbearden at gmail dot com.

Customs list: (updated Dec 4th)
1. S - fun w/ granny squares, fancy longies (done & mailed)
2. H - blue and green merino longies (done, lanolizing)
3. AW - winter wool for brothers (need measurements)
4. AS - baghdad blue PF longies (yarn has arrived)
5. ? - a surprise! (done & mailed)

Available PF colors in limited quantities (*=VERY limited):
Ancient Fern, Grassroots, *Shaba, Chickie Masla, Georgia Rose, Baltic Blue, *Kamchatka Seamoss, *Lena's Meadow, Baku Black, Antarctic White.
(asterisk colors can be used for waistband and cuff, if you want the body in any of those colors LMK and I can order more) :]

Also, androsyn mentioned the potential for a sensitivity to Peace Fleece. I love working with Peace Fleece but I am more than happy to work with anything you'd like, and you can ALWAYS send me your own yarn.

Thanks for your support, as always!

XOXO, E

Going out on Monday for loki_quinn... now that they are finally dry! That is one of the wonderful things about crochet soakers... they absorb SO MUCH! Although it does take them a bit longer to dry, but to me it is worth it.

Anyhow here they are... newborn longies in rescued BFL!Collapse )

ETA: this is the soaker from which the yarn was rescued. loki_quinn had purchased this as a size Large for her son, but unfortunately it was TOO large! She sent it to me and I made it into some longies for her little one on the way. :] pic behind the cutCollapse )

Customs
Hello everyone! I am opening up for a limited number of customs. Since I'm still really new at the WAHM-gig and still gauging my abilities regarding time and the amount of goods I am able to put out, I'll only take a handful of custom orders at this time, and then we'll see how it goes. I am working on an introductory price list, and of course if there is anything specific you want that I can do and it's not on my price list, we'll work something out :) E-mail me at erinbearden at gmail.com if you are interested in a spot on the list. I have limited quantities and colors of Peace Fleece but you can always send your own yarn or tell me what color you want when you reserve your spot and I can order it :] Thanks everyone!


Current customs list:
1. S - fun w/ granny squares, fancy longies (gettin' hooked up)
2. H - merino longies
3. A - something fun!

I'm stocking some Shaba longies tomorrow at The Muses! Check them out, they are just gorgeous and would go GREAT with a Lime Goodmama one-size diaper!
