Black Brook Beanie

Remember the hat design I said I was working on, well I did actually finish it! Ta daaa, the Black Brook Beanie! It seems a bit late in the season to be revealing a hat, unless you’re in Canada or something! Whatever, it’s not too early to start preparing for next …

Sneak Peak: My First Design

Alpaca Rhythm

Yup, you read right. I designed a thing… or am in the process of designing a thing, rather.   I’m carefully tiptoeing into the world of design!  I have decided to start off simple, with a nice scarf in a stitch I discovered recently and really loved.  This kept the …
