Mallard Duck Hat free knitting pattern

A fun outdoorsy hat to make with a skein of bulky yarn. This pattern is a stash buster and when I was out walking I saw a couple of mallard ducks in the bay and thought the color of this hat stocking cap just about matches.

Michael Kors Crochet Dress & Pattern

This is a Michael Kors ad from the December 2014 issue of W magazine. Love it when knitting and crochet makes the pages of high fashion magazines! This crochet dress is similar to a pattern that is in the 2005 January 31 Interweave Crochet magazine. 

Lace Dress is a pattern from the January 2005 Interweave Magazine that you can get copy of via the link above if you would like to make your own.

The winter days in Port Townsend are so short that the sun rises just in time to see it before the work day starts.

Mui Mui Granny Granny Square Crochet Tops & pattern

Mui Mui has these 60's crochet granny square vests (cashmere) in their 2015 Spring Resort Collection. The top picture is from the latest W magazine. Whenever I see knitting or crochet on the runway I want to runway right out and make one for myself, or my teen daughter. The picture below has a link in text to an Etsy store that sells a pattern that to my eye is the same vest in different colors and likely different fibers.
