If you follow me on instagram (which reminds me that I need to get to work on those social media buttons), you know that I made a new hat for souricette 1 on Monday.  It’s the pointy hat pattern like

Sustainable Fabric Shopping

I’ve been wanting to compile sources for socially conscious fabric and yarn for a long time but keep procrastinating.  Why?  Because I don’t feel like I know enough and I don’t feel I’ve researched it enough.  But at this point,

Albion Jacket

It’s finished!  Actually, I finished it a week ago but I only got around to having pictures taken on Saturday.  Perfect weather for it too. The pattern is Colette Albion.  I made version 2 (unlined jacket) to use as a

Project Run & Play : Signature Style

First things first.  A big shout out to my photoshoot helpers, souricette 1 and Mr. Mouse.  Especially souricette 1.  Souricette 2 wasn’t happy at the start of the photoshoot and souricette 1 worked tirelessly to make her laugh.  And succeeded.
