I like to wear my spring coat, my converse runners, and walk around blissfully unaware of the cold front that is about to strike. Read more
Wow! The interest and support for these baby booties has been unreal. I started this blog in hopes that some of my posts and patterns might become popular, but this has been overwhelming! Read more
One sign of a truly successful crochet project is when no one can actually tell if it was handmade or store bought. I love when people are genuinely surprised when they find out I made something. Read more
