Life Is Too Short to Wear a Boring Hat!





Introduction: Life Is Too Short to Wear a Boring Hat!

I was a sculptor/painter until I became a Mommy. Now, I'm a "hooker" specializing in gourmet crochet hats & couture wearables.

I use a LOT of Lion and JoAnn Inspiration Brand yarns, in addition to wonderful hand painted, hand spun, silk, rayons, and cotton from Mystical Creation Yarns from New Mexico. I just couldnt get by without them, and anything else I find on sale!

When it comes to my designs - I break all the "rules"! I'm self taught... I dont count stitches, or use patterns and I delight in using yarns of various weights in the same piece (*gasp) Thats right... I'm a real renegade! ha!

To me, every hat is a work of art. I pair colors that I find appealing or texturally interesting together, sometimes using up 10 different yarns in one piece. My work is unhindered and free form. Each hat is one of a kind, and as unique as the people who wear them!

I do what I do, because I love the feel of fiber between my fingers... and because I'm not right with the world when I'm not creating. The majority of my day is spent being a Mom, and I often sacrifice precious beauty sleep to create and crochet. Long after everyone else in tucked snuggly into their beds... you'll find me knee deep in yarn...muse struck.... with hook in hand.

This slide show is just a small sampling of my work. On average, I make 60 hats a month, as well as a few sweaters, and frocks! (I am a VERY busy hooker!) My 3 yr old daughter is my model and best saleslady! But dont let her size fool you! The human head is nearly fully grown by age 3. The hats you see her wearing here are all ADULT sizes. I also offer preemie, 6 mo, 12 mo, and 24 mo sizes.

You can find my work for sale at my website at, select retail shops, or if the stars align, you might even happen onto me in person at craft fair or art festival somewhere in or around the Pacific NW.

Now, just sit back... relax... and enjoy the show!
Oh! And by the way... Custom orders are always welcome!
