Will You Be My Galentine?

February 13th is Galentine’s Day and it’s the day to honor the girls that stand beside you through thick and thin! Celebrate your Bestie on Galentine’s Day with the Claddagh Crochet Hat.

The Claddagh is one of Ireland’s most recognized and precious images. Two hands embracing a heart adorned with a crown symbolize the purity of a cherished relationship. Little hearts adorn this hat to remind you of that cherished love. Choose a single skein of Monstrous Bulky from Jems Luxe Fibers or use one of their Monstrous Minis curated color collections like Aphrodite shown here in reds and pinks. Create this hat for your favorite lady or girl-it comes in two sizes!

October Tricks make November Treats!

I had a lot of fun partnering with Jems Luxe Fibers for their Trick or Treat advent box in October! I may or may not have been directly responsible for one of the tricks. I can admit, I am directly responsible for one treat: the crochet pattern included in the kit, the Winter Twilight hat! The pattern really shows off Jems’ stunning color palette that tells the story of the three witches of mythology who had to share an eye!

So now, the tricks of Halloween can be your treat! The pattern is great for any of the Monstrous Mini bulky sets from Jems Luxe Fibers. Check out the version below using the Apollo Collection. The blues and whites are perfect for ushering in winter snowfalls. And the Star Stitch detail evokes thoughts of twinkling stars in the clear cold night or snowflakes on a sunny winter day.

I hope you enjoy this trick-turned-treat!
