Last Sunday I lead a workshop at Studio 333 in Sausalito. I demonstrated how to make the yarn bird ornaments. The idea is based on a tutorial for similar birds which stood on wire feet. I created this ornament version because Studio 333 was looking for some unique handmade ornaments for the holidays. My students had a great time, and all succeeded in making some fantastic little birds! I will be teaching this workshop again. Click here to Like Studio 333 on Facebook and learn about more workshops they are hosting, from finger knitting blankets, to paint pouring. I'm available to do bird-making workshops at private parties too. Contact me for info.
My first attempt at crocheting a hat turned out too big, lumpy, and just unwearable, so I all but gave up... until a friend showed me the correct method for creating the increase and decrease stitches to make a proper hat. After that I was hooked, and when I became good at it, my friend asked me to help make 40 hats for a commission from the local surf shop. That's when we started up BONEYARD BEANIES. I have since been designing my own patterns and selling crochet hats and accessories. More photos and an Etsy shop will be added in time...
