What's Coming Next...

There's always something new I (Kim) want to try in the world of crochet! And I LOVE a challenge! One of my favorite things is when a customer says, "Hey--I have an idea for a hat. Can you do it?" It's a lot of fun for me. 

Currently, I'm working on a new style of crochet called Tunisian crochet. It has the appearance of a knit, but done with the ease of crochet. It's fairly simple to do once you get the movement down, but the challenge is that you can't work in a round. Here's a coffee cozy/sleeve I made using this style (available for purchase soon in the shop):

I'm also in the last stages of completing my first pattern, which will also be available for purchase in the shop. The challenge for me is that I don't use a pattern when I make things. I just make them! So all of the patterns to the hats in our shop are stored away in my brain. I've been working on writing them down so other people can make them too. I've finished the pattern for the Hello Kitty Hat and am currently having it tested by my wonderful and talented sister, Kelsey.


Check the shop often to see when these items arrive!
