FOs, Patterns, and other news
Well February came in like a storm here at R&R, and left almost the same. It has been one thing after another, with every single one of us getting sick at one point. We all got some much-needed haircuts by the fabulous Brittni at Holmes Hair Studio (if you’re in the area, go to her and tell her I sent you!) and I discovered that Ulta is both my new favorite store and my wallet’s worst enemy. Meanwhile, the weather lost its mind in SC, and decided to go from 70°F to FREAKING SNOW overnight. I just can’t figure out what to wear, but it’ll be okay. Spring is marching in! ( <– See what I did there? Marching? I’m hilarious.)
What have we got to show for the shortest month of the year? More than we bargained for, I can tell you that. Allow me to share this February RoundUp with you….
This month I released a new crocheted hat pattern called Flatter. This springtime hat is made using only ONE BALL of WeCrochet’s Cotlin, a DK weight cotton/linen blend. I have long loved this yarn for things like kitchen towels and market bags, but it makes excellent warm weather garments and accessories, too!
I designed this hat as a base for your own artistic inspiration. Wanna cover it in flowers? Or maybe weave a ribbon through it? Perhaps you’d like to add some beads or feathers or something super unique. DO IT! And tag your hat #RowsAndRosesFlatter to inspire the rest of us.
Wrappin' it up
All in all, I’d say it’s been a pretty stellar month, wouldn’t you? We’re wrapping up a Headband With A Twist KAL and a Felici On The Double Hat CAL in the Ravelry group in order to make way for the March -alongs. Maracas Bowls and “something knitted with cables” are both coming up on March 1st so please come join us! And if you haven’t checked out the latest info post on the blog about spinning yarn, be sure to give it a lookover, too.
We’ve got a St. Pat’s FLASH opening in the facebook group tomorrow, and the Spring/Easter Specials & Customs opening on March 5th. I’ve got three new patterns mostly written and another half dozen in various stages of completion, so be sure to keep an eye out for those. If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter yet, please do. I have so much fun putting this together every month, and sometimes I even include a fun surprise gift.
Thanks for hanging with me. Your friendship makes me feel cool and loved and included ♥ If you’ve enjoyed this February RoundUp, please consider tweeting, pinning, commenting, or otherwise sharing. Every little action you take helps my little business to grow!
