Well, howdy do.

I have new stuff for you! I’ve been listing new yarn colors on the site since yesterday (many more to come! Keep an eye on the facebook page!) and…

A new pattern! YAY!

Funny story.

About 8 months ago my nephew, Brandon asked for a purple hat.

Who knows what I was thinking but I just didn’t get it done! And then BOOM, 8 months had slipped by and it still wasn’t done!

Unacceptable, I say! πŸ™‚

So I dyed up a “manly” purple, called Smoky Mountain Rain (sold out). and whipped out this hat for him. (Ya, that’s me modeling it, just in case you’re wondering).

So this hat was “sorta” 8 months in the works, but only took a couple hours. Yeesh.

Peeps were begging me on Facebook to share the pattern, so I wrote it up and it’s available in the shop now!

What’s so cool about this pattern is you can use it with any size yarn, any size needles and make a hat for any size head. Seriously! It’s my go-to beanie formula and makes for great last minute gifts.

I LOVE it.Pics soon!I’m off to weave and list more colors for you… Just wanted to share this adorable little purple hat with you!Enjoy your day!! Sending lots of love your way!XOXOXO
