Custom Color Throw Blanket Afghans Knit for You!

I really do love collaborating with my customer-friends to come up with brand new color combinations!

Recently, Michelle asked me to create a large throw blanket in chartreuse yellow-green, steel grey, bronze and poppy red. 

She sent me two inspiration photos, one of a throw pillow and one of her coffee table.  What an amazing color pop!  And I do love a challenge. :)

So, I put multiple strands each of a few different, color-shifting yarns and I think that I got awfully close to a perfect match.  Wanna see??

Michelle's custom throw
This was all possible because several new colorways of the color changing yarns are now available.  So if you've been hankering for a hard-to find combination, please let me know and maybe I now have the "paints" to "color" a perfect throw for you! :)

There's even a white, soft brown and pretty grey stripes yarn that I'm especially excited about, I think it would be so classy as a throw!

What about you, what have you been up to?  What are you excited about these days?  Please let me know! :)

Appreciating you,

Baby Photography Prop Clear-Out and Wrap Sets!

Here's what the baby props clear-out is all about:

1) I'm realizing that the more time I spend managing nine (NINE?!  How did this happen?!  I'm out of control!) different online photography prop shops, the less time I have to give to YOU!

You deserve more... more personalized attention and more choices! :D

As a first step toward my goal of focusing on my VIPs instead of on computer stuff:

I've decided to allow the 587 (a-what?!) listings at my BabyBirdz shop to sell out and to centralize at CricketsCreations and CricketsKnits.

2) I've got 20+ colors of yarn for my single ply, lace baby wraps and I'm loving knitting up these fluffy, light-as-air bits of softness! 
lace wrap in light pink
Squiggle lace in sage-cream-taupe
Brown-Grey metallic
Light Beige/Taupe
White with fancy stitches
And here's where I could really use some help...
My big idea is to set you up with an assortment of these sweet wraps at a quantity discount as a way to clear out BabyBirdz!

You get to choose any five or more wraps for only $25 each (normally a $38-48 each value depending on which exact yarn and stitch I use) and $5 flat rate shipping worldwide.

That's basically like getting 2 wraps for free, woo hoo! :)

And I get to clean up BabyBirdz by setting up 5 different listings for you with the special price after we've discussed your custom picks! 

Here are some of the many colors to choose from:
  • White
  • Cream
  • Light Beige/Taupe
  • Pale Mint
  • Light Antique Yellow
  • Light Pink (shown above)
  • Squash (light orange)
  • Gold
  • Teal Blue
  • Plum Purple
  • Dark Berry (like a burgundy)
  • Rusty Red
  • Bright Red
  • Spring Mix (pink-purple-green-peach)
  • Heartthrob (pink-purple-charcoal-peach)
  • Black
  • Navy Blue
A few of the colors
Please get in touch so we can discuss which colors I can knit up for you (I have too many to even list)! :) My contact info is in my signature below or I can be reached at Crickets Creations on facebook.

Always grateful,
