Inspired by Jane and Kate (my college girl and my soon-to-be college girl), I designed a new hat pattern! The College Girl Hat! It’s a fun one…super squishy yarn and chunky cables. I even added a cute faux fur pom! It takes one skein of bulky yarn and knits up super fast….perfect gift knit! I’ve already made a good half dozen, with yarn for many more beckoning me to sit and knit in front of my favorite holiday movies. Love Actually, anyone?
You can find the pattern on Ravelry. And it’s on sale through this Friday, 12/13/19, for $2.50.
Happy knitting, friends!

The way I work in the summer is extremely different than during the school year. Nine months of the year, you can find me in my studio for a block of time while Fatty is at work and the girls at school during the week. The exact hours may vary, but they...read more
I recently did a mini clean up in the studio and at the end I had six quilt tops (with their backs!) waiting for quilting. There are also two quilts that just need to have the blocks sewn together. Honestly, I have no business starting another quilt top...read more
