This week's designer is not only a creative and talented mind, she's also very giving.

She's set up the non-profit organization ConnieCaps, Inc, which provides stylish, hand-crafted hats to cancer patients. All all the proceeds from the sales of her patterns goes to fund ConnieCaps.
So, purchasing her patterns will do great good to not only you, but others in need whom you may never have met!

On to the knits!

Pictured is Lemonade from Lemons, a free and very lovely poncho. I quite enjoy the multiple pictures of ways to wear it, especially the over-sized cowl!

Simple Ridges Shawlette is just that: a great little knit that utilizes simple texture and repetition to create visual interest. With such a solid base, this pattern is wonderful for that special hank (or two!) of yarn you might have.

Hanging on Hat was designed and is meant to be purchased in conjunction with the complimentary scarf, Letting Go. This hat has a fantastic lacey yet cabled brim, one that adds a subtle twist to the basic shape of a simple hat.
