LOOM KNIT SAINT PATRICK'S DAY HEADBAND...

FREE LOOM KNITTING PATTERN!

Front of Loom Knit St. Patrick's Day Headband

Last night I was trying to think of a quick pattern that I could add my loom knit shamrocks/3 leaf clovers to. I was also playing with my German Shepherd and thought it would be fun to take pictures of her for this St. Patrick's day...She may have a German name but my father was very Irish...a Milligan. So I came up with the pattern below, it's perfect because it can be used as a headband or a doggie photo prop.  It also took me under an hour to loom knit...even better!

The front of the headband has the belt and buckle and the back has the Shamrock/3-leaf clover attached. You can find the pattern for that here:  Shamrock-3 Leaf Clover. This can be adapted to any loom.  For a headband use a loom that would make a tight hat on your head (1 size smaller).  I use the green KK for my head and it makes a perfect adult ladies size headband.  Go smaller for a child.  The green KK loom also fits the neck of my German Shepherd. She is a normal 60-70 lb. female. For a larger or smaller dog just use a loom that fits over their head and it should fit.  For small dog,s lesson the rows evenly throughout pattern. If using a small gauge loom, I recommend using more pegs for the gold belt as it will end up smaller.

CHOCOLATE CHIP HEART VALENTINES!

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO ALL OF OUR READERS!

#heartshapedchocolatechipcookie #valentinesday

I spent my morning making my yearly Valentines for my husband, children and nephews.  I was determined to use items that I already had in the house and was very proud that I didn't even have to leave the house for this years Valentines.  The way to my husbands heart...is anything baked! He loves sweets. So I decided that I would make him a heart shaped chocolate chip cookie.  This was my first attempt but it came out pretty good.  I also made some heart shaped cookies for the kids and wrapped them up!

I whipped up some Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and put it on some parchment paper and using a butter knife I shaped it into a heart shape.  I had all the supplies because I never found time for my Christmas baking this year. During baking, the large cookie spread out and while the cookie was hot I trimmed the heart with a butter knife.  I made regular cookies and used a cookie cutter to make one heart shaped cookie for the front of each of the bags.  To do this, I pressed the cookie cutter into the larger cookies as soon as they came out of the oven. Then, of course, I ate the trimmings. I cut out felt hearts and hot glued them on the bags, along with a tag.

I'm not going to lie, this took me all morning (clean-up included) but I was glad to stay out of the commercial side of Valentine's Day.  I would love to hear how my readers use their creativity to celebrate this holiday!
