Firefly Lace Shrug

Get it on Ravelry here:

Noche Boliviana Shrug

Donde esta la fiesta?
This gorgeous shrug is as soft and shimmery as a starry night under a summer moon in La Paz. Worked in a simple rectangle then folded in half and stitched together to create the sleeves, this piece is as easy as it is evening-breezy. You’ll be hearing “Que bonita!” all night long.

Shrug size is written for “One Size Fits Most” with notes on making size adjustments. The length of the shrug will depend on individual wingspan and the sleeve tightness will depend on individual size and preference.

Big Friendly Giant

Because sometimes you just need a big, cozy hat.
A ridiculously big and ridiculously cozy hat.
Whether you are tramping off to Dream Country or chasing bellyhoppers off the edge of the map, this BFG inspired hat will ensure that you do it with a maximum amount of delight and comfort.
Fit for a Majester or a modest giant, this bit of whimsy in chunky yarn and big stitches is almost as much fun to make as it is to wear. 
You can make it in any two colors your heart desires: we chose Cameo Rose and Eucalyptus from Wool and the Gang, reminiscent of frobscottle and zozimus dream bubbles.
Hold your horseflies, keep your skirts on, I is your humbug servant.
In short, every human bean should have one!
(Description written by my fabulous editor & bestie who just read The BFG to her boys. She isn’t on social media, so I can’t tag her to give her full props💕)

Ballet Bun Covers

Necessity is the mother of invention.

My daughter studies ballet (which sounds very grown up, but she is only 7) but has not yet been blessed with an abundance of hair. After each recital we trim (or chop) her hair to let it grow in better. She really loves having a real ballet bun for practice, so we’ve always had to use a ballet bun form. After her last recital, only an inch of hair popped through the form! So before class, I whipped up one of these ballet bun covers to go around the form. She was so happy to have the appearance of a bun!

This pattern includes 8 different kinds of bun covers. It’s a great stash-diving project. No specific yarns are listed in the pattern.

Four options are given for lightweight yarn and a 4.0 mm hook.

Four options are given for worsted weight yarn and a 5.5 mm hook.

Large and Small Mesh pattern & Large and Small Web pattern in worsted weight & lightweight yarn.

Large = 10” circ. bun form (or hair bun equivalent)
Small = 7” circ. bun form (or hair bun equivalent)
