Instagram and a Warm Drink

Do you follow @anchorintime on Instagram? If not you should. 🙂 Here’s what I’ve been up to lately.

I stayed warm through January crocheting away, drinking peppermint mocha tea steamers and wearing my favorite Boot Warmers and Beanies. Some lovely winter items went out last weekend, like the Sailor’s Net Scarf, a few Bow Hand Warmers, Beanies and some fun custom orders. I stocked up on yarn to start creating the Spring Collection!

Growing up in beautiful California, I have a love for the outdoors and know that requires cozy and classic accessories for everything from a cool morning on the beach to windy mountain hikes in the summertime. Ever since I began crocheting, I was more interested in making my own patterns, rather than something that already existed, I wanted to create new things. I originally learned to crochet from my mother and have now been crocheting for longer than I can remember. Accessories I dreamed up and Read More »
