I usually dislike working with black yarn but now that I’m knitting, give me all the black. 🖤 Also, black coffee because we ran out of creamer and Houston is experiencing a winter storm. Which basically means a little ice but the whole city shuts down 🤦🏻‍♀️ I’m not complaining about an extra day at home though! Earwarmer pattern by @vanessaknits, mug from @fordexplorerknits

Three #wips from the other day are now three finished items. My goal is to not start anything new until I finish everything in progress. Who else has a problem starting new things without finishing something else? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Ear warmer pattern by @vanessaknits

I got this book in the mail today! I love @amazon and Sunday deliveries. I’ve been wanting to try #macrame for quite some time now and hopefully this book helps!
Well I was working on another Mr. and Mrs. pillow set before someone decided she needed some attention. Pattern by @tlbpatterns
Believe it or not but this is my very first time working with the thick and quick yarn by @lionbrandyarn. I don’t know what took me so long to try this yarn but wow do I love it! And of course I’m working on another Emma Ear Warmer. 🤷🏻‍♀️ pattern by @vanessaknits
I finally finished the hat we got at the @ourmakerlife meet up in 2016! Now that I know how to knit, it took me about an hour, but back at the meet up, I had no idea what I was doing when it came to knitting. I’ll be honest for a minute and while I was in NYC, I felt completely out of place because no one knew who I was and I didn’t have anywhere close to the number of followers that some of the other people did. The only reason I went was because one of my sweetest friends was one of their founders and she convinced me to go. People would ask my handle and I’d almost be embarrassed to tell them because I knew who they were but they had no idea who I was. I have since learned that my number of followers or sales on Etsy is just that: a number. I’m slowly growing but I’m okay with that. I know I’m talented at what I do and those silly numbers don’t change that. Although I was super shy and awkward, I did meet a few amazing ladies who took the time to get to know me as a person and not just a maker. I’m now happy to call those ladies my friends. If you’ve read this far, then thanks for listening. 💕

Hi everyone! I thought I’d go ahead and do a #fridayintroductions because I haven’t done one in awhile. I’m Jessica, the sole person behind Orsak Originals, and I’ve been crocheting for 6 years. I recently learned how to knit and I *may* like it more than crochet. I work full time but I’m also a full time wife / mama to the sweetest 4 month old boy. I’m definitely a morning person and love coffee no matter what time of day it is. I live in Texas but I miss the mountains of Colorado that I grew up in. It finally got cold enough for knits so I definitely took advantage. Tell me something about yourself in the comments!

#tbt to the 2016 @ourmakerlife meet up in NYC. Confession: I’m still working on that hat from @weareknitters 🙈
I have a lot of #maker goals for 2018. I have already learned my lesson on this hat to choose colors that contrast better but one of my main goals is to get better at knitting. What are some of your maker goals for 2018? Wifey hat pattern by @ladyjaycrochet
Finally finished my sisters Christmas present (only a few days late 🙈). Headband pattern by @vanessaknits Cowl pattern by @the.hook.nook
I finished one Emma Ear Warmer and started two more! I am obsessed with this pattern by @vanessaknits
This lion baby blanket is available in my shop! I also have a few other baby blankets available. Best part? I’m trying to clean out inventory and prepare for 2018 so they are all on sale! No code needed! 🦁
Pattern for this specific blanket is from @repeatcrafterme
All those granny squares I made became a Christmas tree skirt! I absolutely love seeing my creations in use! 🎄🎅🏼
Today is my last day of maternity leave. And I’ve been an emotional wreck all day. I’m dreaming of the day when I can be a full time mama / maker. I’m hoping to finish this Emma ear warmer today. It’s been a nice distraction to take my mind off going back to work. Pattern by @vanessaknits
I’m obsessed with how this Mr. and Mrs. pillow set came out! 👰🏻🤵🏻Pattern by @tlbpatterns

Repeat customers make my heart smile. There aren’t enough words to express how happy it makes me knowing someone loved my work enough to order from me again. Pattern for this Santa hat and the finished hat can be found in my Etsy shop. 🤶🏼🎅🏼❤️
I am loving how this Mr. and Mrs. pillow set is turning out! Pattern by @tlbpatterns. If you aren’t already following Emily then you need to because her patterns are amazing!
Today I’ll be working on sewing all these pieces together. But not until I finish my coffee ☕️ 💪🏼
