How does F/W13 look for Make More Happy?

So lucky spend time with Hannah & Kelty of The Weaver House a few weeks ago to shoot our looks for Fall/Winter 2013. Check out their blog for a couple more shots of the goodness to come.

The start of something good....

Fall/Winter 2013-14 is going to rock your pants off.

I've been inspired to start a kids line this year. Lots of yarn testing, pattern designing, and testing on my nephew over and over again has led up mini versions of MMH staples (infinity cowl, tubular cowl, button scarflette, earwarmers) and added a fox, a bear and a dragon to the mix.

How does this look all together? Watch this amazing sneak peak into Fall & Winter 2013 video to find out!

Incredibly fantastically sweet and perfect right??!

Giveaway | "One for you, One for me."

In-Betweener Season: the awkward time between Winter and Spring or Summer and Fall where you don't quite know what to wear. You end up putting on multiple layers, carrying around an umbrella in your bag, as well as rainboots in the car.. and.. you don't quite know if it will be too warm for the awesome knit cowl/scarf you got at Christmas. Thus, the "inbetweener cowl". Its unofficially official. Comes in four colors  frost, seafoam, grey fog and slate and two styles. Straight-up or Twisted. Both infinity cowls but 'twisted' has a twist in it. All made from a super-light warm wool that drapes beautifully over or under your coat.

HAPPY around the world

I always love seeing people wear MMH cowls/scarves and comment on how much they love them.. how soft, warm and snuggly they are.

It especially makes me happy when I send accessories to places that are not-Vancouver... not that Vancouver isn't special but its like part of me is travelling.
