Hats for the Mission…

Look at this big box of wonderful yarn I just received today from YarnCanada.ca!

It’s going to be turned into hats (and maybe scarves) for our local Downtown Mission.

This year I bought a chunky yarn so the hats should knit up nice and quick!!

Have a great weekend everyone!

The Taylor Baby Blanket…

Hello everyone!

I’ve completed one of the two patterns I wanted to get written.

The Taylor Baby Blanket pattern is now available to purchase over at www.lovecrafts.com, in my Etsy shop and on Ravelry.

It’s a nice quick knit and the blanket is super soft and cushy! Wonderful for the special little one in your life. 😀

2 new patterns coming soon…

Hello everyone!

I’ve finally completed one project I’m writing a pattern for. Yay! I just have to sew it up, take photos and write out the pattern.

Here’s a sneak peek.

I’ve also started another project I’ll be writing a pattern for.  It’s a baby blanket.  It’s double knit so it will be SUPER thick. I’ve knit it on smaller needles resulting in a tight knit so those little fingers can’t get caught in it.  It’s also so cushy you can use it for a play mat.  😀

So stay tuned!  The patterns will be available on loveknitting.com, Ravelry and in my Etsy shop.

Off to get these done. 😉

Happy knitting!

Joanne’s Back Porch Shawl…

Hello everyone!

Joanne, who purchased my Back Porch Shawl pattern a while back, sent me some pictures of her finished piece.

Didn’t it turn out just spectacular?

I love the colours she chose to use.  Instead of using the off white for the collar as shown in the pattern, she chose a soft pink.

If anyone else has pictures of projects they created using one of my patterns, I would love it if you would share them with me!

You can send them to diana.poirier@yahoo.ca.

Happy knitting!

THANK YOU…

Hey everyone!

Rest assured I’m still knitting (LOL!), but have been busy doing stuff outside now the weather is warming up a bit.

I wanted to take this time today though, to say “thank you” to all my followers, so I’m giving away a FREE pattern.

My “Peacock Stroller Blanket” is the perfect, lightweight blanket for this springtime weather.
