Featured Artist on a Tuesday - lisianblue

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

Switching things up a little bit this morning, just to keep everybody on their toes!

This morning's featured artist is another clever and creative person from Handmade Artists, lisianblue.

Lisianblue creates hand-knitted and crocheted items for babies to babes, and she has a lot of terrific things.  I admire her skills, although I knit, and am pretty adept at it, Lisainablue can crochet, a skill / talent that eludes me.

Here are some fun and wonderful items from her shop and a couple of them would make fabulous gifts for Summer, or the new Mommy in your circle of friends.

Like these fingerless gloves.  These would be fabulous for a Summer Date Night, don't need a jacket, but bring something to keep the chill away.  These are great and lovely!

Product Description:  Sparkly ivory and lace elbow length fingerless gloves are a fun yet elegant accessory.
Made with sport weight acrylic yarn in ivory with bits of sparkle throughout, these three quarter length fingerless gloves are 13" long and 8" around.  With an all around lacy pattern they can be worn on either hand.  Comfortable thumb opening, but they do not cover part of the thumb.  They will comfortably fit up to a 9 1/2" arm. 
These unique hand crocheted fingerless gloves have a lacy hand edge and I've added a row of picot stitching at the elbow end to extend the lacy effect.
Want these lovely fingerless gloves in a different size, please feel free to send me a message and I will make a pair just for you.  Want a different color?  That's a possibility too.

Product Details:  Cool summer white cotton  thread crocheted in an open stitch with an elongated picot edging makes this sweet flowered hat flirty and romantic. 
Simply elegant to wear for a beach wedding, and your honeymoon too!  Dress up a summer outfit for a night out dancing, or out and about around town.
A stretcy 20" will fit most adult women up to 23" with an 8" cap long enough to cover the ears.  If you need this shorter or smaller, let me know and I can adjust it before mailing it out.
This juliet style cap is lovingly hand crocheted  with white cotton crochet thread.

Product Details:  Pretty ruffled baby bib with a sweet flower made with 100% cotton in purple, lavender, yellow, and white to keep your sweet baby clothes clean.
Thick cotton tie bib measures 9.75" wide x 13.5" long. Machine washable and dryable.
Mary Jane style matching baby booties coming soon.
Custom orders gladly accepted.

I know, we're just entering the summer months, but this is one of my favorites of her items.  This would be great for that Office Christmas Party, or just to add a little Holiday spirit to that bulky winter outfit. 

Product Details: Fun Santa hat to keep you warm while out and about, skiing, sledding, hanging out.
Made with acrylic yarn with eye lash or "fun fur" yarn along with the white for the brim and pompom.  This one is 20" around and 20" long.   Fits 21" - 24"  heads
If you need a smaller one let me know and I can adjust this one, or make a whole new one if the original one is sold.  Please let me know head circumference if you want a smaller or larger one.

What lisianblue has to say about herself:


I enjoy doing so many things, painting, sewing, knitting, crocheting, drawing, photography. I have many years of experience in all these areas. My grandmother taught me how to knit and crochet when I was about 8. I am the mother of 2 and a grandmother to 3 beautiful children from 9mo's to 12 yrs old.

All hats and scarves are hand crocheted or hand knit in a smoke free, cat friendly home. I try to use a smaller hook or needle so you get a hat with a tighter weave to help keep the cold air out. Each hat and scarf is washed with a mild detergent without the use of fabric softener, and put away to limit any further contact with my furry friends. If your hat does not fit, I will gladly make another one for you as soon as I receive the original back in the same great shape it was mailed, or adjust the original. Custom orders: I will be happy to work with you on colors and yarn choices - except for wool. I love wool, but unfortunately, I am highly allergic to it. I can get away with working with a mohair blend, but otherwise I pretty much have to stick with acrylic, cotton or bamboo.
All orders are mailed through USPS, as soon as possible after your payment is cleared through PayPal.
If you have any questions, comments, please feel free to contact me

I hope to be adding some clothes for children in the near future. Spring - Summer 2012

  1. loloLove it! Thank you for such a wonderful feature!
    short story about the santa hat - I was wearing mine - just like that one when I went to Wal-mart one evening, I had a few people smile at me, and some kids said Hi! But this one particular cute little boy got so excited as I walked through the parking lot, and called out cheerfully " Hi Santa!" Made my day!
