Who Wants My Beatnik?

January 19, 2013



This is my new favorite hat. It’s made from super soft Cascade Eco Duo using the pattern Felicity. I used larger-than-called-for needles, sizes 6 and 8, but otherwise stuck to the pattern. I highly recommend it.

I’ve been wearing a lot of handknit accessories. Cowls, mitts, hats and socks have all been part of my daily wardrobe. I also wear neutral colors, simple silhouettes and like to be comfortable. If you saw my stash you would think otherwise. Pink! Florals! Periwinkle coating!! I’ve calmed down my yarn stash and have been making smart purchases lately. My fabric stash not-so-much.

So, I’m beginning a purge. You can eventually buy my fabric here. Nothing is currently posted because I’m kind of a lazy bum and it’s nice outside. Maybe tomorrow.


Also, even though it breaks my heart to give it away, who wants my Beatnik? It’s too small for me. If you’re interested in a free sweater, please email me: stephanie at makesthethings dot com. The size is about a 32″ chest. It’s knit from 100% wool, so you have to promise you’ll never throw it in the washer. It’s so toasty that I recommend it goes to someone who lives in the Arctic Circle. I’ll ship international, so lemme know.
