Twelve Days of Christmas Knits {in progress}

At our house, Christmas is not over with the dawning of December 26th. I love Christmas and think it deserves more than one day of celebration! So we have developed some of our own traditions for celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas.   We continue Christmas crafting and baking until Epiphany, or King's Day, which […]

Mother- Daughter Belles

  Belle is a sweet crocheted cloche with a big three-tiered flower. This hat reminds me of a cloche you would find in the wardrobe of the ultimate southern belle. My girlies are totally in love with Belle!     The entire hat is worked in a variation of popcorn stitch. The variation gives the […]
