October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Because one of my roles is as a lactation consultant, October is an important month to me. August is too, as it is National Breastfeeding Month.

My thoughts this month have been on how can we each as individuals support such a large cause. We know that early detection, education, and support are SO important!

Have you seen the new Meadow Poncho?

Who doesn't love a granny square? Well, actually, I'm not a real fan of the traditional granny square! Gasp!! But, I love a more modern take on the traditional granny square.

I created this poncho crochet pattern with the thought of creating a more simple, modern look.

This easy poncho crochet pattern - the Meadow Poncho - is a cute poncho pattern to crochet for the fall, winter or early spring.
