Free Crochet Latte Headband Pattern

A free crocheted cute-as-all-get-out headband pattern for you today.

I also love making a latte by hand every morning for my handsome fella and myself. And some coffee alternative Teeccino when I don’t want any more caffeine. So yum.

Are they beyond gorg or what?

These two colors would look sensational together as a shawl! OHHH WEEE! The options are endless!

The Brilliance of a Sock

The concept of knitting your own socks is mind-blowing to most people, especially non-knitters.

“Why make your own socks?” they ask, “When you can buy them for $1 a pair at Wal-mart!”

To this I just chuckle secretly inside because they don’t know. They don’t know the joy and purpose and the satisfaction of knitting a sock.

Whether or not you’ve ever knitted socks, I think you’ll understand this if you are crafty at all.

15% Off Sale all Weekend and NEW YARN!

Oh, good you’re here. I was hoping to catch you. I have NEWS! New items and sales and whatnot. 

~WHAT’S NEW?~

In the midst of a wee bit of shopping yesterday, I did manage to get my new wool sock yarn colorway listed on the site! It’s called AUTUMN RIVER and I think it’s just perfect.

I am currently thinking of what to make with it. I think it would look way cool to hold the yarn double and see how the colors merge and create a muted, heathered effect. Hmmm….

I have a confession to make. I’ve been keeping a secret […]
