By Molly Kimball, ElephantBeads

The DTeam welcomes a new member from Canada, MK Girl, whose shop contains lovely hand-crocheted and knitted accessories for winter, including snow boots, snuggly hats, and other functional and attractive items for children and adults. However, you will also come across unique spring finds in this shop. As the warmer weather ahead beckons, so do the handmade treasures from this Etsy shop.

Below are a few we find especially appealing, from a flower headband to a woolly lamb hat (who can resist that face? It’s the Chinese Year of the Sheep, after all!) We encourage you to browse MollyandBuggs for more adorable creations.
