Well, I’ve got lots of hats in stock 😂 My market didn’t go as well as I was hoping (though I did get my first “Jesus Christ, that’s expensive” 🙄), but overall it was a good experience. I was stationed next to some absolutely fabulous gals and the customers who came through were amazing! I do have a bunch of stock left over, including a handful of Mika beanies (I’m definitely keeping that mustard one for m’self 🙃 [pattern coming soon, too!]), so I’ll post them either here or in my shop soon if you’re looking for some ready to ship jazz. Feel free to DM me if you want to claim anything or want pictures before I post them; I’ve got beanies and ear warmers and octopi (oh my) and scarves ++++ 👍🏻

Market number 2 is tomorrow and I’m still working on stock...way to go, me!👍🏻 This is my first straight craft show (my first market was a sort of fair/festival sort of deal), so I’m not really sure what to expect, but I think it’s a relatively smaller show, so hopefully it’ll just be a fun, laid back day ✨

Moments before my wallet joined the witness protection program 👨🏻 No, all of these puppies were on clearance which, 1: sucks because I guess they’re being discontinued? but, and more importantly, 2: I got a pretty sweet yarn haul on a cheapo’s (me) budget 👍🏻 I even found the ever elusive Lemongrass 🕺🏻

Listen to the pillow 🗳 #knitthevote

New project 🧚🏻‍♀️ It’s been a while since I’ve made something purely for fun, and I gotta say, it’s the bees knees 👍🏻

✨ PATTERN RELEASE ✨ After 15 months (😬) the Holmes Beanie pattern is finally here. This super quick knit uses super bulky weight yarn, so it’s nice and toasty, and is great for knitters of all skill levels. Available now on Etsy & Ravelry (use code HOLMES15 for 15% off, this week only!) #holmesbeanie

They’re done done done! My only contributions to #socktober have been sent to their rightful owner and I’m very proud to say I did not cry. Though I may have stood over them, staring for a good 5 minutes before sending them off 😢

It’s finally coming together! After over a year, my Holmes Beanie pattern will be releasing Monday 👏🏻 I think this is going to be my last new beanie pattern for a while, so I’m pumped to get it out!

I did just list these beanies in my Etsy shop, too, if you’re looking for a new winter bean 👍🏻 Over 15 colors to choose from!

iiiiiiiiiiiits heel time!

It’s cowl season! And if you’re a totally-normal-and-not-crazy-at-all dog lover like me, that applies to the canines of the world, too 🐶 These bear cowls are always a favorite in the fall/winter and I love making them...almost as much as I love getting pictures from my customers of their dogs in them 😏 #imonlyinitforthedogpictures .
These dog cowls are available in the shop in sizes XS-XL and a ton of colors 🌈

Whose crafty birthday is it and is incapable of not looking terrified in pictures? THIS GAL! Today is my shop’s 4 year birthday 😆 I started this jazz after I graduated high school as a way to make some extra money doing something fun, not really taking it seriously or thinking it would go anywhere. And here it is today, my actual, full-time job. That’s pretty friggin cool! This was never “the plan”; I didn’t see myself working in this sort of design/art field, but it happened and I’m down for the ride. I don’t know if/when it ends, but I’m incredibly lucky and so grateful to be doing this thing. And to end on a sappy note, thank you to everyone who has ordered my products, purchased my patterns, or followed along. You all are a fabulous bunch and your support is greatly appreciated. You, quite literally, are the only way I could do this...and not go bankrupt 🦄💕
