A few years ago bun beanies went VIRAL. And when I say viral, I mean instantly overnight these stylish beanies took over the internet. I remember being tagged in a multitude of photos of these hats on Facebook, so I decided to make a few and see how they did on my Etsy shop.
Have you ever been gifted a gorgeous skein of hand dyed yarn and had absolutly no idea what to make with it? No worries friends I have found the perfect project for you, a basic half double crochet beanie, or as I like to call it, the Nola Beanie!
Recently, I've found myself struggling to find inspiration. Sometimes, I try so hard to design amazing pieces that I end up completely failing.
It's such a sucky feeling.
One way I am able to come out of that "funk" is by strolling the yarn aisle at Hobby Lobby or Joanns and letting the yarn speak for itself. The different colors, textures, weights, all have something to say.
Do you guy's know what the absolute BEST part of summer is?
It's Farmer's Markets.
I mean come on, who doesn't love waking up early in the morning (cup of coffee in hand of course) and taking a relaxing walk down to your local farmer's market. Supporting small town vendors and getting to try all those yummy baked goods!
We've all been there. It's a hot summer day. You're hanging outside, sunbathing, just doing your thing and you reach to take a drink of your cold iced macchiato from your fav coffee shop,
but wait... UGH
