Just Ducky Teaser

Coming soon to Sweet City Knits, Just Ducky baby hat. Spring weather makes me think of baby chicks and ducks. Their fluffy yellow down coat and cute little peach bills were calling out to be made in knits. Bright sunny days call for a billed hat, but the chill that's still in the air means something warm and cozy up top. Simply adorable and Just Ducky!

Sweet Treats come to those who wait

Oh, fellow Sweet City-zens it has been so long since we've talked. Perhaps you've been wondering if I have fallen off the face of the earth. And at times, I've wondered that myself...
I have taken some time away from my business to deal with family matters, but I'm back and roaring to go!

Have you been wondering what I'm working on?

How about these Sweet Treats?
Aren't they just delicious?

We had a make your own ice cream sundae birthday party for my daughter and I crocheted these Ice Cream Treat Bags for her party guests. They were stuffed with stickers, lipgloss, and ice cream erasers.
I also made some for the boys that left off the drawstring and were stuffed with fiberfill for a play food ice cream cone.

Purchase this pattern "Ice Cream Treat Bags" in my Ravelry Store- $2.99

Ahhhh, Vacation.....and yes, Frilly Janes are Coming Soon

I know it has been a long time since my last post and many are waiting with baited breath for the release of the Frilly Janes pattern. But.....I am going on vacation September 8-30 and won't be able to respond back to your questions and comments until after that time.
The Big Question: When is Frilly Janes going to be released?
Soon, I promise! I was wanting to get it released this week, but decided it would be bad form to release a pattern and leave the country, leaving all questions, concerns, and inquiries hanging. So, the pattern will now be released about mid October. And I'll be here to open my arms to all your praise, and err, questions.
In the meantime, I'm making up sample sizes as I test knit Frilly Janes. Here is a preview:
Frilly Janes in Black/White Newborn Size

Frilly Janes in Red/White 3 month size
Frilly Janes Cupcake version: Pink/Brown in 3 month size

The Cupcakes Have Landed!

Finally, the long awaited arrival of the Sweet City Cupcake Hat! (Well, long awaited for me at least)

Sure, I'd seen other cupcake hats out there, but none had the look I wanted. I wanted frosting with a ruffled edge, a cherry that looked like a cherry, and it had to be totally safe for a baby to wear. Since I couldn't find the one I wanted, I decided to design it!


The Sweet City Cupcake is all I imagined. This could also be custom made with beads, buttons, or scraps of colorful yarn to make sprinkles.

Purchase the Hat: If you are interested in your own custom designed cupcake hat, send me an email:
This hat matches my "Frilly Jane" booties as well. I'm currently thinking about rattles to make this as a gift set. perhaps a large plump cherry?

Paw Prints

I'm working on the write up for my new pattern "Paw Print Booties".

Paw Print Booties are a crochet slipper sock style baby bootie with a ribbed fold-over cuff and paw print design on the sole. The bootie itself is completely seamless in construction, the “paw prints” are optional and sewn on. Make it in brown for many different animals, or make it in blue and it resembles a certain clue leaving puppy on a popular kids show. Makes an adorable baby shower gift or photography prop. Sizing options for newborn through toddler.
Skill level: Beginner
This bootie pattern makes a super cute themed gift set when paired with my “Monkeying Around” hat.

Pattern is in development and being tested. It will be available soon!
