With Covid-19 quarantine still very much a reality here, it’s been a long while since I’ve had a hair cut. So I decided to create a free knitting pattern for this lacy head scarf to help me out on all of my bad hair days… suffice to say I’ve been wearing it every day. Folks, I don’t recommend going red before a global pandemic hits. It’s not a pretty picture.

I believe my last trip to the salon was before Christmas? Anyways, I think you’ll be seeing a lot more head wrap patterns around here in the near future. I’m currently working out some ideas for a crochet version- so stay tuned my patient crocheters!

How has quarantine affected your knitting and crochet? I find myself full of inspiration all day long. I’ve come up with so many new ideas.

Part of me wishes I could crochet a cocoon around myself and hibernate until the world gets less weird.

You guys might notice that the blog looks a lot different than it used to. It was actually down for quite a while, and I didn’t intend on bringing it back. I let the domain name expire, lost all of the old content, and was about to move on when the Coronavirus hit. Around that same time a huge, stressful life event took place. I returned to my hobby as a way to find peace throughout the day, and quickly found myself missing this blog.

I’m actually kind of excited to have a fresh start, and I’m loving the new look! I hope you like it too. I have a few exciting things in the works, including free knitting patterns, crochet patterns, kits, supplies, and more. I’m also offering a unique pattern membership. For the cost of a cup of coffee per month- you can have access to ALL of my knitting patterns and crochet patterns in ad-free downloadable format! If you buy more than a few patterns per year, the membership will pay for itself. Check it out below!
