Special thanks to Ravelry member dc2go for requesting this pattern be next to update! I love this pattern for teaching begging lace knitting, making a last minute gift, or keeping my on the go project bag light and easy. It is a great little pattern to practice many of the […]
The newest issue of Craft Leftovers Monthly is in the shop today and it happily marks 4 years of making this fun zine! Can you believe that? Four years of zine making and I’m still loving it as much as that first issue. To mark this great event, get 40% […]
In the spirit of full disclosure, Quarry Publishing sent me this book to review. That being said, I never review a book I don’t enjoy. Cut It, Paste It, Sew It: A Mixed-Media Collage Sourcebook (Quarry Books, September 2010, $17.99, paperback) arrived in the mail and I immediately read it […]
I’ve been overly fascinated by crochet lately and have started to use it more and more in my paintings. I’ve working on this particular piece and while I want the crochet to be flat across the painting I do not want a lot of tension on the sides of the […]

I have been wanting to make a new summer head wrap for myself for quite some time. Something that buttoned up, something a little lacy, something red and crocheted. This turned out just right and I am so happy to finally get it written up for you. It’s the perfect compliment to any summer outfit, whether your hair is long or short, up or down it will look just great and keep those wispy hairs out of your eye when running around outside.
Ah using up little bits of yarn and little buttons makes me so happy. This week’s pattern uses 1/2 ounce of fingering weight yarn. And 2 to 4 buttons. It knits up pretty fast, and since it’s so small, blocks fast too! Definitely wouldn’t hurt to add some beads in […]
