About the Designer:

Lauren Rad of A Been in the Bonnet describes her work as simple, classic knitwear designs, and I agree. A yummy collection of socks, gloves, hats, wraps, and other "small" knit patterns. What exemplifies A Been in the Bonnet is a lovely combination of texture and lacey stitch patterns that create work that is cozy and light at the same time.

About the Designer:

Kerry Bullock-Ozkan of North Carolina, is a knitter, spinner, and novice weaver. She began designing her own knits in 2013 when she couldn't find the patterns she was looking for. (How many can relate to that?) Kerry's full line of knitwear is inspired by the natural fibers she loves to work with. Her catalogue of classic cowls, hats and cardigans feature both color work and textured patterns. Looking at them you can imagine sitting outside on a crisp autumn afternoon with your favorite hot beverage and enjoying the changing leaves.
