From my great-grandmother to my grandmother to me, the love of crocheting has been passed. I used to chain long strings and used them for 'show-and-tell' when I was little. Now I crochet clothing of all sorts. This is a passion and I love to make wonderful accessories for babies, kids, and the occasional adult. I use this blog to post new photos of hats and of my friend's lovely children. A quick feed of my Etsy shop is to the right and below are some buttons for your personal blog. Enjoy!

we have activity

life has been insane and i was surprised to get orders over christmas break (saved my booty), but now it is slow and i can get caught up on other things. the first and foremost is trading hats for photos. Shipra Panosian contacted me and was finally someone who photographed, but did it with a feel that i like. its warm, no matter how cold the picture looks, and its real. everyone else takes pictures just the same (no offense, they're all beautiful pictures and i'd love to be able to photograph anything that came out that nice) and i like her different style.

school has began to keep me busy again. but it will all be okay, i am sure. i have a very good feeling about this semester (versus last) and feel i have a wonderful 7 months ahead of me (1.5 in France)
