I designed the Aviator Ear Flap Hat for children through adult size.  The kids hat is featured on the voting page but I designed an ADULT size in BLAZE ORANGE, as well.  You can vote for us once per day.  We really want to win this contest..great perks for the shop and our pattern will be featured in a free e-book.  SUCH FUN!  Help us by voting once each day NOW THROUGH SUNDAY, November 23.

   

  We are so excited to showcase local designer, Josh Ryks, known as Swordofaknitter. I embedded a link so you can check him and his designs out on Ravelry.  He is obsessed with shawls and has designed quite a few.  We are pleased to have his designs showcased in a trunk show at the shop this week.  Stop in and check out his work - Amazing~
