I was on Pinterest last night and found a
really simple pattern for socks…or slippers. I personally think they are a perfect mix of both socks and slippers… slocks?? LOL!!
I’m changing up the pattern a bit as I wanted to double knit them to make them really cushy.
Here’s hoping they turn out!
I was contacted by
Yarn Canada earlier this week and asked if I could share a post about their yearly event of giving yarn to individuals and groups who knit or crochet for good causes.
They are giving away $2000 in yarn! How wonderful is that?
So, if you are a part of a group or an individual that knits for a cause,
please feel free to fill in their application form! Deadline is December 15th.
The details and application form are here:
And if you are looking to purchase yarn, they have a fantastic selection and SHIPPING IS FREE on orders over $45!
I had some time this weekend to complete 1 of the projects I was working on and got the pattern written yesterday!
The pattern is now available over at
loveknitting.com, in my Etsy shop and on Craftsy.
“The Little Royal” Bunting Bag and Beanie is the perfect gift for a soon to be prince or princess in your life. It’s a quick and easy project that knits up on US size 6 straight needles using DK weight yarn.
