Okay, I know I’ve been on a little bit of a crop top spree, but this is the last one before summer ends. Pinky promise! I’m actually super excited to tell you about this crop top though, because it’s finally an original pattern! I love being able to experiment and try new stitches, and not to toot my own horn, but I really like how this pattern turned out. In fact, I would be honoured if you’d take the time to check it out.

Inspiration #8 – Stargazing

This summer, I’ve been working with some international students visiting from China, and it’s really helped to remind me of how blessed I am to live in Canada!

You do have to sign up for e-mails from Wool and The Gang in order to access the pattern, but I think it’s worth it.

#26 – Wolf

Wolf 1

I always tell people that if they tell me their what day they’re born and a little about themselves, I might make them something for their birthday! People normally don’t think I’m serious when I say this, but honestly if I’m not busy the week of their birthday, I’d totally be willing to make something for them. I made this offer when I was camping with some friends from church, and someone jokingly gave me fake birthday and asked for a wolf. I don’t think they expected me to follow through, but I had time this week, and as a result, here is their very own wolf!
