My little secret…

So some of you may have noticed that I have been fairly quiet here on the blog and in crochet land apart from anything to do with the CAL…. well the reason is I’ve been busy growing a little human which pretty much took up all my energy! 

My beautiful new daughter joined our family on Tuesday and we are over the moon – though a little sleep deprived! To celebrate I’m having a one-day sale in my Ravelry shop. Use the coupon ITSAGIRL only for a special discount on your total pattern order (offer ends midnight May 21, 2016 GMT).


Happy Hooking!

Pattern Release: Inca Kisses Ladies Hat


The Inca Kisses Ladies hat is finally ready for release – cue big sighs of relief from me! This hat has been one of the most complex hats to get from brain to paper that I have ever created! Not because it’s particularly difficult but trying to explain what to do turned out to be trickier than I thought it was going to be.  Thank goodness for the patience of the (numerous) testers on this one;  special shout out’s of thanks to Magic Mommy’s Yarnings, Loopy Hooky Crochet, Crazy Leggies,  and P Bridge.

This colourful and fun Inca design inspired hat has soooo many possible colour combination options; just looks at some of the colour schemes my testers put together.


A perfect hat for hitting the slopes or just adding a splash of colour to the suburbs or team it up with the Men’s Inca Trail Hat for the ultimate cool couple look!  From now until the 23rd February 2014 if you buy Inca Kisses Ladies Hat you can get Inca Trail Men’s Hat half price over on Ravelry; just add code: DOUBLE-INCA to receive the discount.
