What do I love about kids patterns?
1. They are cute
2. They go by fast
3. They don't use a ton of yarn
4. They are great for busting some of your stash!

Seasons Change

The fall winds are starting to blow through Chicago. The change from Summer to Fall has always been my favorite transition. It's like a sigh of relief from the hot and busy summer.

As a shop owner, I look at patterns every day. I believe it is important to constantly inspire myself, that way I can help inspire others. And what better way to spread the inspiration than create an Inspiration Blog dedicated to patterns and yarn that inspire us together!
