Winners for the January Giveaway

I'm so excited today. I love announcing winners of my giveaways. Today we have two. One for a beanie hat...

and another winner for this slouchie hat

I split the names into two lists, numbered them, and then used to randomly determine the winners.

The winner for the beanie is:

Pacas !!!

and the winner for the slouchie is:

Sam !!!

Congrats to both of you! Now all you have to do is send me your mailing address and I'll put these in the mail tomorrow.

Ok... I have more business to discuss:D

I finally broke down and did it!
I joined twitter. I kept saying that I would eventually get around to it and finally I did. So now you can find me there too.

More business... and I think you'll like this better.

A few weeks ago I got an order for a sock monkey hat. I mailed it out and then one day last week I realized something. I screwed up. Imagine that! I forgot to sew the ears on the hat before mailing it to the little girl. I felt sooo bad, because the ears make the hat. It just wasn't complete. So I contacted the mother of the little girl and offered to make her another hat for free in a different color.

I used my own pattern, that I am currently writing out. It is really easy and I hope to offer it soon.

A few weeks ago I put up a poll asking what kind of critter hat would you like to make most and of course the majority chose "other". I'm hoping "other" meant sock monkey...tehe

Here's my little monkey modeling and acting crazy

Congrats to the winners and check back for the beanie pattern And the Sock Monkey pattern!


  1. Well done to the winners! I know you have said that a pattern is coming for the beanie hat and I am interested in that. However, I Would also love a pattern for the slouchy hat. Do you already have one or have plans for one? I have checked in your etsy shop but I am wondering if it is on your blog somewhere? I would certainly be interested in a pattern if you are considering it!

  2. Hello,

    I will post the beanie pattern tomorrow. The slouchy is a little different. That one may be published elsewhere. Not sure right now. It depends on several things. I'll definitely let you know when I find out.
    Thanks so much,

  3. Yay!! So exciting!!!! An email is coming your way.

  4. Thanks for letting us know about the slouchy hat. I'll keep a look out!

  5. OMG!!! I win it!!! Thanks a lot!! I'm sending you an email right away!!!
