Our January designer is Emily Sheehan of Woolly Bear Knits. Emily is a local Minnesota designer. We enjoy her quick knits in super bulky yarn. The name “Woolly Bear Knits” comes from her love of finding woolly bear caterpillars in the fall (my favorite season). They literally freeze solid in the winter, and the bands of color on their bodies are said to predict the harshness of winter. These fuzzy little creatures make the perfect mascot for my knits. Her cowl is a creative way to use up scraps of yarn leftover from making hats.
