Christmas presents???

Hi everyone!

September is right around the corner and this is when most knitters (including myself) start thinking about Christmas presents!

I have quite a few people I like to make presents for, so the sooner I start, the better.  I try to pick projects I know I can complete in a couple of days – scarves, hats, gloves, dish cloths, etc.

So, if you’re looking for a quick and easy project that would make a great Christmas gift, here’s a FREE pattern for a Chunky Knit Scarf.  You can click here for the pattern.

I used King Cole Super Chunky yarn I purchased from loveknitting.com.

And stay tuned because I’ll be sharing a new pattern soon! 😀

Happy knitting!

I’m thrilled…

It’s not a towel…

Hello there!

A couple of days ago I shared a sneak peek with you of a project I was making that wasn’t a towel! LOL!!

Here it is!  I made a scarf! Yes, I know it’s the beginning of summer, however, scarves are always a simple and quick project and I wanted to start something I knew I could complete!!  😉 I used a super chunky yarn which made the project go even faster!

I used King Cole Super Chunky yarn that I purchased at loveknitting.com.   It’s so so soft!!

I also created a pattern for the scarf and it’s available for FREE right here!

So head on over to loveknitting.com and get yourself some yarn! It’s never too early to start those Christmas presents!

Happy knitting!

The hooded scarf…

Hi everyone!

The other day I shared a sneak peek of a project I was working on and here’s the finished product.

It’s a hooded scarf!

I’m not much of a hat wearer, but on some days I do need something to cover my head, so I was looking around Pinterest and I found pictures of hooded scarves! I figured those wouldn’t be too hard to make, so I came up with my own simple pattern.  Click here for the pattern.

I used 3 balls of bulky yarn (Loops & Thread “Charisma” available at most Michaels stores) and size 13 needles, but you can use whatever yarn you have in your stash and just modify the pattern accordingly.

It only took a couple of days to complete and I got it done just in time for the cold weather today!
