What I've been up to lately.

Chaleur.

So pleased to release my latest design.
Which I have been wearing for weeks now.
A soft, cozy companion.

Keeping me so chaleur
(and looking très chic)
on these cold winter days.

I’m so in love with herringbone at the moment.
This ‘popover’ uses a vertical stitch pattern.
I also have a horizontal stitch (scarf/wrap) pattern in the works.

More details about this pattern found here.

For fun, and as a sort of pre-holiday gift,
I will be giving three free patterns away!
Please leave me a comment below to enter.
I will announce the winners on Monday, 12/19.
