Hi everyone, my name is Leah and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, NV. (Yes, I'm a rare native breed!) I'm an ancient alien theorist that fell in love with a master motorcycle technician while living in Louisiana when we agreed on what was the best Role Playing Game of all time, then married him a few months later wearing a Lynard Skynard shirt (he wore Metallica)! However, being a southerner, he does enjoy when I act like a pristine southern belle from time to time, so I keep in touch with the trends in fashion.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was a little girl, and I've been hooking non stop ever since. Tradition has always meant something to me, so I try to make items that honor this generations old art while being fresh and unique - nostalgic novelties- and hope to inspire other crafty women to try this technique for themselves.

Red is my mother's favorite color, and I designed this cowl just for her. We live in Las Vegas, NV where it never gets very cold, so I knitted this with an airy pattern that lets it breathe without feeling a draft. I also love infinity scarves because they can be worn so many ways and make the perfect everyday accessory and gift.
Because it can be worn so many ways and used so often, I decided to use the most durable and comfortable economic choice of material: Acrylic. Acrylic isn't the plasticy itchy stuff of yore. With new technology, nothing compares to the combination of silky softness, ease of care, and pure durability that premium acrylic yarns have to offer. Being the spill-clutz and lazy washer that I am, I much prefer acrylic to merino or wool and design most of my wearables with this awesome material.
