FREE Pattern: Classic Super Bulky Knit Hat

Here is a free pattern for you guys! I love the simplicity of this hat and how customizable it is. You can knit this in a solid color, a variegated, self-striping or as many different yarns as you would like. I think it also looks great with a big pompom on top or a wooden button on the side... the possibilities are endless!

You will need a Super Bulky yarn (I love Lion Brand's Wool-Ease Thick & Quick) and size 13 & 15 needles.

The pattern is free on Ravelry so click this link to grab it!

Don't forget if you make this I would love to see your beautiful creations! Tag me on Instagram @kizzyknits or hashtag #kizzyknits

new year, new things

My birthday was this past week and for my 29th year I decided I want to learn something new. I stumbled upon a youtube video that mesmerized me. The hooper in the video moved around so beautifully with her hoop and I couldn't stop watching. I began searching more videos of hoopers and saw that all kinds & shapes of women were hooping and that gave me the confidence to want to try it out myself. I logged into Etsy and bought myself a hoop from Stellar Sunshine Hoops. The seller was so kind to send me an extra hoop with my order! 

The moment I received the hoops I spun one around my waist and realized that waist hooping was just like riding a bike. I was pretty good at hula hooping as a kid but never thought I could still do it as an adult. I am looking forward to learning how to move with my hoop and hopefully becoming a healthier and more confident version of myself!

Accumulate Experiences, Not Possesions

Back in August my husband & I visited a wonderful church in Branson, MO called Woodland Hills Family Church. Since that visit I have been following their sermons online and this weeks sermon has been my favorite so far. It is so much about what God has been teaching me the past few months about minimizing my things and allowing more time & energy for relationships & experiences that God has in store for us that I just had to share it here.
