Sun’s out, Buns out…?

So I’m sure some people have seen that ponytail/messy bun beanie post that kind of exploded on Facebook recently? I literally had 4 different friends (within the same 24 hour time span!) send me the same post saying I should try making one!

Yesterday after school I made up a pattern for one and it turned out pretty decent! I usually make slouchy beanies, so this one is a little more fitted and I’ll need to work out the length so it sits a little further on my head, but it’s definitely comfy!


Introducing the Buns Out Beanie, available for purchase in my Etsy shop just in time for the holidays! I’m also thinking about possibly posting patterns I’ve created… maybe another time? What do you guys think?

Side note- My messy buns NEVER look this good because my hair is super thin, so honestly I’m mostly impressed with that! 🙂


Merry Madness

I’m sure I’m not the only one saying this but I can’t believe it’s already a week into December… Where did all my time go? My first year in a new teaching job and now it’s halfway over! Honestly I feel like I’m drowning a little, but not even because of my job.

This gift giving season, I’ve gotten a lot more orders through my Etsy shop and it’s been a bit of a challenge trying to balance time at work with time working on knitting at home. In retrospect, I should have been more prepared, maybe had a few items already made instead of doing it 100% made-to-order… But hey, now I know for next year! I’m down to only 5 orders left to fill before I fly back to Ohio for winter break.

My issue now is that I have so many ideas of things that I’d like to make for myself, or to possibly list, but I feel like I have no time to get to them because I’m busy filling orders! Which I guess is a good problem to have so I shouldn’t complain.

I just wish there were more hours in the day! Don’t we all??
