Karuna is the Sanskrit word for compassion, and was inspired by a Yogi friend who radiates sunshine, and would move mountains to bring joy to others. The crossed stitches of this motif reminded me of sparks of sunlight dappling water, and I couldn’t think of a more peaceful and happy image to create in string!

This tuque is knit from the top down, which is turning the typical hat making method on it’s head. Top down hats are a game changer if you are always playing yarn chicken and struggling with the fit of tuques.

A fantastic seller! Super friendly and helpful, even in these crazy times. And the yarn is SO gorgeous, it's unbelievably soft and easy to work with and the green is such a beautiful color. I made a bralette and matching shorts and absolutely love them both! 😊

I wish I was better at spinning to do this justice. It will be fun to see how it turns out. Love the combination.
