My goal for this year is to waste less. Reflecting upon my daily beauty care routine I realized I was throwing away about 16 disposable cotton rounds every week. That's 64 every month! So, I decided to make my own reusable option. I love these because they are double-sided, so I can use one per day, one side in the morning, and the other at night. I also like them because they hold up well in the laundry and I've already noticed my skin getting happier and healthier! I do recommend washing them before the first use. Another tip is to be sure and get a good quality and soft 100% cotton yarn. My favorite brand is "I Love This Cotton".

I wanted to knit a Christmas present for a family member this year. Being huge Nebraska Cornhusker fans I searched for a pattern to celebrate the beloved football team. However, I couldn't quite find one that included a winter element, which I wanted to have incorporated into the design. So I created this pattern. It just so happens that our last name initial is "N" so it serves a great double-purpose and leant itself to the naming of the pattern.
I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I do.

This hat pattern came from a commission I received from a family member who saw a similar one online. It can be a little hard on the knuckles with twisting the bulky yarn, but the result is well worth the effort. I've made a few more for friends and they love them. I hope you enjoy it as well!

Just in time for Halloween, here is a fun pattern for some spook-marks! Lol. These were my first attempt at color work on such a small and intricate scale, and I was very happy with the result. I used the intarsia technique on the pumpkins, and it worked really well. However, regular carrying of the yarn worked better for the cats.
I usually block my bookmarks in a 1/2 water, 1/2 starch solution. It seems to give them just the right amount of stiffness.
I hope you enjoy this pattern and all of the neat bookmarks you will be able to make from it. If you want to say thank you, please favorite our Etsy Page: www.etsy.com/shop/scenerychanges or like our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/scenerychanges.

Much like my Antler Mitts, this hat pattern was created for a custom order. Since there wasn't a pattern out there that I liked well enough, I decided to make my own. This hat is perfect for little ones who want to dress like their favorite Disney character and keep their head and ears warm at the same time. It is listed in a size for a 10-12 month old, but should be able to be increased fairly easily for adults or older children as well.

I had a custom order request for a pair of mittens that used an antler cable like design. So this is the pattern that was created! Necessity is indeed the mother of invention. After only one “whoops” mitten, the following pattern emerged.
I hope you enjoy this pattern and all of the neat mittens you will be able to make from it. If you want to say thank you please favorite our Etsy Page: www.etsy.com/shop/scenerychanges or like our Facebook Page: www.facebook.com/scenerychanges.

I recently purchased a mandolin and have been able to pluck out a few songs. Some of the two-finger C, D, and G chords I can play with some skill. And though I am learning and having fun with it, there is one song that both my wife and I have enjoyed learning (you can only play "Constant Sorrow" for so long).
This is an ongoing work. I have pieced together some of the basic tabs for the melody. I will eventually get more of a completed tune as my skill progresses. You may even be able to hear me play it in the future... soon.
Here is my mandolin tablature that sounds a bit like the "Concerning Hobbits" song combined with a little of the "Misty Mountains" song from The Hobbit:
This is a very basic song to pick out. It is for all of us who are learning. More little tunes from the movies may be added. Let me know what songs from the movies should be added to this.
(p.s. I will hopefully have a YouTube video of this soon...)
