Mimi Wilson & Kate Denne, mother and daughter team, are the creators of "Whimsy Woolies". Myself being the artisan and Kate the queen of computer savey, allowed my dream to become a reality in this high tech world. Inspired at a very young age by my protegee, Mimi Foort, my namesake, who was an amazingly talented and spirited lebonese women. She lived on Quadra Island, across Discovery Passage from my home. I am reminded of the kerosene lantern, the spinning of the wheel and the smell of fleece. Mimi taught me to knit, crochet and spin. I was 19 when I opened my yarn shop, taught others my crafts, and had a design company for a number of years. This was prior to the web, when it was a great effort to market your talent. I was fortunate enough to sell my designs both in Victoria and Vancouver, but burnout hit and I lost my creative spark for a number of years. Then along came my sweet grandchildren, who have re-ignited my flame. I read a quote that lit a spark, by George Elliot, "It's never to late to be what you might have been". I want to leave a legacy, my patterns, a book, something to hold in your hands, a craft that I hope will ignite your creativity. I want everyone to be able to create and enjoy my Whimsy Woolies as much as I have in their creation.

This darling cloche is worked with Bernat's 'Sequin' in a double crochet and shell stitch. With the sparkle sequins embedded in the cable twist yarn, this is the perfect hat for all those special occasions. Finished with the 'Satin Sparkle' flower band, its simply sweet!
