Instagram and KOKITO

The cold weather is upon us and my little fingers are busy endlessly wrapping yarn around needles. I just sent 10 colourblock hats to KOKITO in Prince Edward County in Ontario (with five more to follow -- my fingers can only move so fast!)

If you're anywhere near Prince Edward County, please drop in and show Shelley and Jenn some love.

I've also started an Instagram account for darn it all. You can follow all my woolly adventures here.

If you need anything from the shop before Christmas, please order soon!

Dots & Loops

Just a quick update to say that I delivered a stack of beanies, fresh off the needles, to Dots & Loops Handmade in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

It was my first time visiting the shop and it is just perfect. It's so nicely laid out -- no clutter -- and it's clean and beautifully organized. I would love to work in a shop like that. Almost makes me want to move to Lunenburg . . . 

If you find yourself on the South Shore, please stop by Dots & Loops at 183 Lincoln St. And while you're there, have the beet salad at the Salt Shaker Deli. Seriously. I can taste it right now. It was one of the best things I've ever eaten!

Organic cotton wash cloths

Homespun recently contacted me and they're nearly out of darn it all product! I've been spending the past few weeks doing this:

darn it all. 
and this:
darn it all. 
and now I have a big stack of organic cotton wash cloths ready to ship off to Indianapolis!
darn it all. 
But first I have to finish knitting a few more fingerless mitts and hats to include in the shipment.
darn it all.
I hope everyone had a great summer. As the weather turns colder, I'm getting pretty excited about all the warm woolies in my future. But before that, I think I'll take time to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer sun. Happy September!

Tusket Vintage and Antiques Fair

The Tusket Vintage and Antiques Fair is this weekend in picturesque Tusket, Nova Scotia! If you're local, stop by to check out all the antiques and collectibles. I'm personally hoping to score some jadeite.

Nice big stack of darn it all beanies, ready for the Tusket Vintage and Antiques Fair this weekend! #darnitalltoheck #darnitall #etsy

And while you're browsing your favourite kitschy trinkets, why not stop by and check out my big ol' stack of warm woolies? Yes, that's right -- darn it all will be making its first real-life-not-on-the-internet appearance at an outdoor sale during the summer. Whether you like it or not, winter is coming again in six months and it's never too early to plan to keep yourself warm and cozy.

See you this weekend!

Big news! Patterns now available!

I've been working away at writing up patterns for three of my hat designs and I'm very happy to announce that you (yes, you!) can now knit your own darn it all slouchy beanie!

 Pattern writing. Stay tuned! #darnitalltoheck #etsy 
I've checked my patterns twice, thrice and probably more times than that. I'm crossing my fingers as I send them out into the world, hoping there are no typos or errors!

Abbotts Harbour slouch 

So, how can you get your hands on a sweet little pattern? Two ways, my friend. Patterns for the Abbotts Harbour slouch, Miniques slouch and Ledge Harbour slouch are available in my shiny new Ravelry store and ye olde etsy shop

Minique's slouch in grey

And how much would you expect to pay for such a hat pattern? Well, . . .

Ledge harbour slouch 
Okay, I'll stop. I don't want to sound like an infomercial. Suffice to say that I'm selling my patterns for a mere $2 apiece.

So, c'mon! Grab some sticks, some string and a toonie and knit your little heart out!

Of course, if you're lazy, I'll still knit you your own darn it all hat. There's lots of selection right over here.
