CSD Weekly Wrap Up

I've been neglecting my blog a little. Sorry.
I've been busy working on orders, trying to come up with a design for Design Wars & just living life...

Speaking of Design Wars, I revealed one of my "reject hats" this week.  I didn't feel like this hat was good enough for the contest, but when I posted it on my Facebook page, I got more likes and comments on it than I have in a long time.  I just hope you all like my new item even more!
If you're not familiar with the Design Wars contest, you can learn about the designers & the amazing prize sponsored by Red Heart Yarns by reading more HERE.

 A friend of mine was wearing a slouchy knit cowl & told me that a friend of hers bought it from Forever 21.  She told me she had to return it & asked me if I could make one.  Easy Peasy.  This is my new "Maria Cowl"... you can order one in my shop & the pattern will be available soon!

 I made a hat for a friend's daughter a couple of years ago.  That little girl loved that hat, but as time went on, I really started to hate it (I made it before I got really good at what I do)... so I let her pick out her favorite colors & sent her this replacement.  This is the "Mia Hat", and oldie-but-goodie.  It snowed in Chicago this week & I saw a photo of her wearing it.  Warmed my heart... and her head. :)

I also finally released the Sharyl Headwrap Knitting Pattern this week.  You've seen these headwraps EVERYWHERE, I'm sure.  I've found several similar patterns online, but they were SO hard to read.  I simplified it a little & even novice knitters will have success making one using my pattern.  I'm also available for pattern support (always!).  If you don't knit, I do... you can customize one in my shop, too!

January flew by, so here's to a happy & healthy February!
