Monekying Around!

Hi lovelies! For today's post I thought I would share with you two of my latest creations. Meet our twin sister monkeys... they don't have names yet for they will be going to a new home very soon... into the loving arms of my sweet lil' cousins. It didn't take long for them to be born and come to life with there mischievous cuteness! Even though they are youngin's you can still see that twinkle in there eyes looking for something to get into :) These two gorgeous babies were designed by Pepika and is published in the Zoomigurumi book by Joke Vermeiren. Pattern name: Johnny The Monkey. The pattern can also be purchased at I highly recommend checking out the pattern as well as the amigurumipatterns website. They have lots of cuteness ranging from kitty's and puppy's to birds and safari animals & so many more. If making amigurumi is your thing then they are a must see. I choose to modify my yarn weight & hook size to make bigger monkey's which has worked out perfectly on a couple other patterns I have tried from there website. You can check out our Ravelry page for more info on this project here: That will be all for now... its a short post but I am working to have another up very soon! Till then be good to yourself & happy crafting!

Hello Lovely's! I hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday with your family & friends. Today is a grey sleepy kinda of day here in Ontario, Canada but that isn't stopping me & momma from knitting up a storm! But for now though I thought I would take some time out to share one of my latest creations with you all. I completed this knitted slouch the other day and am very pleased with how it came out. The pattern is the Seed Slouch Hat- by Devon Johnson. For this beautiful hat I used Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in the colour way: Atlantis. For anyone who is looking for a simple but beautiful hat then I would totally recommend this pattern. It works up really fast because of the bigger needle size... this one took me 6 hours of straight thought knitting to complete... very fast! Before I end this post I have to share a fellow knitters page & current group with you. Olivia Bennett is a fellow Youtuber and friend that does some very gorgeous work... you must check her channel out! Olivia is currently doing a Christmas CAL & KAL which runs from September, 13, 2013 to December, 24, 2013.

Introduction

Hi! Welcome to our blog :D My name is Bobbie (to the right) & thats my beautiful mom Elda standing beside me. We are the team that make up Sweet Comfort Designs. Our journey started into the wonderful world of crafting about 2 years ago. My mom had been a crocheter & knitter in her younger days taught by her mother... whom is a highly talented lady when it comes to all crafts! Myself I had dabbled in crocheting a couple times as a child. My mom & grandmother would try and teach me the art of crocheting but it never took hold. I would always get frustrated and believed I didn't have it in me. That was until 2 years ago when I decided to give it another go. I have always loved creation and always had some type of computer building project going at one time or the other but I was wanting something more... so I took the plunge into crocheting and have been so fulfilled since! With my newfound love & confidence I stepped into the world of knitting. It was frustrating at first too but it was worth every moment! I find myself knitting more these days then crocheting but they are both much loved hobbies that both myself & my mom take up almost everyday! (Expect those sleepy or grumpy days, of course!) Giggles! My mom & I were also very blessed not long after our journey started. I had found another fellow crocheter & guru on Youtube... onevirtuouswoman. If you have not since her Fresh Off The Hook videos or awesome tutorials then you must go check her out! She accepted me & mom into her Youtube group Fresh Off The Hook. (For those not familiar with FOTH its a group of crocheters that do weekly videos showcasing there work.) We did FOTH videos for a good few months before moving on to another journey. Joining The Cast Off Crew (Creator-Owner: thecrochetzombie) on Youtube. It has been the most amazing journey... not only learning two new wonderful crafts but also meeting so many fellow crafters like ourselves. We wouldn't trade it for anything :D We created our little home here at Sweet Comfort Designs to journal or work & share it with you all. We love seeing what others are up to and creating... its very inspiring to see! Thank you for visiting our little site. More updates will be coming in the near future. Until then be good to yourself & happy crafting! Bobbie & Elda M.
