    CJ Shell Cowl

I’m a HUGE fan of fall and there is nothing better than pairing up a cowl and ear warmer set to match your outfit. I have been very busy the last several weeks with jotting down new designs and setting up a plan to get them out to you all. I’ve got an infinity cowl, bulky ear warmer, slouch hat and a few sets of fingerless gloves written out. Now, I just have to find the time to get them worked up and sent…

    Rhea Cowl

    Good Morning. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is getting ready to have an amazing week. Let’s talk about big, bulky and beautiful!  I tested this incredible pattern for Denisse Sharpe over at DeniMade and she did not let me down.  The Rhea Cowl is a cowl and a hood all in one and I am in love with it.. It took 4 skeins of yarn ( I bought ILTY from Hobby Lobby), a J hook, and a bunch of puff and v stitches. Along with a few other things as well. It measures 31 inches long and 17.5 inches wide on the bottom part. You may think…
