I’ve written a pattern for it so you can make one too! It’s super easy since it’s knit on straight needles and uses only knit and purl stitches.  PERFECT for the beginner knitters!!

Click here for the pattern!  You will be re-directed to the loveknitting.com website.

Happy knitting!

and then there were 4…

Hi there.

Since my last post I finished up my Dad’s scarf for Christmas.

This was so fun to make and is the perfect idea for those little balls of yarn you can’t really make anything from.

To make this scarf, cast on 40 stitches using size 8 needles with 2 strands of yarn at one time.  I used 2 different colours at one time.  The yarn I used is DK yarn which is a thinner yarn.  It would also be known as a size 3 yarn. Knit every row (the garter stitch) and when one colour runs out, tie on another one and keep going!  You can make it as long as you want.

A perfect stash-busting project!

Happy knitting!

Projects on the go…

I thought today would be a good day to go through my knitting stuff to see how many projects I have on the go. You know, what I should finish before starting the next project I have in my head.

Well, it’s FIVE!! I have 5 unfinished projects! Yikes!!

I better get a move on if I want to start making my Christmas presents and more hats for the Downtown Mission!

Please tell me I’m not the only one???

Happy knitting!

I’ve been commissioned…

So, I’ve been commissioned for the very first time to make some baby gifts.  Cool eh?? 😀

A friend sent me some pictures of what she was looking for and asked me if I could make them.  I said “Sure. Why not? I think I can do this. I have no pattern, but I’ll give it a go.”

Here’s one of the little hats.  I’m almost done.  Just have to sew it up and put on the pom-pom.

Next I’m going to start on the bunting bag to go with it.

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend! It’s raining here so a great day to stay inside and knit!

Cheers!

Baby blanket…

Hi there!

I’m just stopping by to share with you a baby blanket I made.

I’ll be making a few of them to send to my hometown’s hospital Neonatal department.  A friend back home asked on Facebook if anyone could help and I said I would.

I love making baby blankets, but the opportunity doesn’t arise too often so I jumped at the chance to make some for the hospital.

You can click here for the free pattern.

I used Stylecraft Special DK yarn in Lemon and Meadow green.  I double knit the blanket using 2 strands of yarn at one time to make it super cozy.  You can purchase the yarn over at loveknitting.com.

Happy knitting!

and it’s live…

My very first pattern book is now available as a downloadable PDF through loveknitting.com!!

In this book I share with you 8 of my most favourite patterns for Winter wearables.  Every project is quick and easy and knit on straight needles.  The patterns use only the knit and purl stitches with a couple of slipped stitches thrown in there making them ideal for the beginner to intermediate knitter.
