A belated Valentine to "my" Sarahs...two new hat patterns:

Where would I be without you, my little sister who sometimes acts like the big sister? SARAH, I am so proud to be your sister and so happy that you're happy. This hat is named after you. Love you. 

SARAHJAY is a ribbed hat that knits up quickly with chunky yarn and utilizes two needle sizes to ensure a great cozy fit. It is a hat that "gets you". Haha.

Colorway: Fairy Tale

SARAHJAY. Who knew all those letter-writing, angst filled years ago what a journey our friendship would take together. I may not see you for months/years but you're still my "BFF". 
What an amazing woman you have become. Love you, mama!

Hello my peeps. 
Want a cowl to go with your JANE hat? Meet SHANNON! 
Shannon is an elegant chunky cowl featuring squishy ribbed cables and lace and requires only a single skein of bulky yarn. This cowl is fully reversible and can be dressed up or down. 
Way back in the mommyHOOD days I met Shannon and have grown to love her dearly. 
Shannon you are uniquely talented, your creative overflow inspires so many including me and I love ya to pieces. Not to mention you are so generous with your advice and friendship. 
Hope you enjoy this pattern. xo.  
I don't know what's up with my camera, but this is the actual color of the cowl. 
Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes Bulky Superwash

This stuff blocks beautifully! 
Peace out, yo.
