Pattern Description:

This pattern was originally designed for a hat contest where all proceeds went to a local charity. I wanted something adorable and classy to win the heart of the judges.

My addiction began when I was working at a sock store...During summer, business was slow. I got bored reading and decided that I wanted to learn how to make my own socks. So I did. And I have yet to set my needles down!

One project after another, I'm constantly learning new things and making things I never thought I would or could.

It's fantastic!
