Laura Irwin is an incredible designer. In her book Boutique Knits, she has some beautiful patterns. This one is the Side Slip Cloche knit with Berroco Vintage. I am not sure who will get this one as a gift but I know it will be adorable on someone. It would be cute with a variety of brooches or buttons added to the brim above the ruffle. You could even change the look by changing out the accessories. I have been uploading my photos so look for more projects soon.
I first began making glass beads in 2004 and have been consumed ever since. Experimenting with different techniques, glass colors and metals is a never ending pleasure. I love opening the kiln to see what new suprises are inside. I am truly blessed to be able to do what gives me so much joy.
