It became an Infinity scarf…

Hello everyone.

Last week I posted a picture of a WIP using up some left over yarn I had.

I didn’t know if I was going to use it as a shawl or a scarf.  In the end, I sewed the 2 ends together and made an infinity scarf.

Because I used 3 strands of yarn at one time, it’s super thick so will be really warm for the blustery winter they’re predicting for us.

And it’s quite wide, so can use it as a hood too.

Well, off to finish a baby blanket for a friend whose daughter-in-law is expecting in January.

Happy knitting!

The Preppy Infinity Scarf…

Hello there.

My pattern for the Preppy Infinity Scarf is now available at loveknitting.com, in my Etsy store and on Craftsy.

I used the “Condo” method of knitting for this scarf – using 2 different sized needles – giving it a lacier appearance.

And because it’s a lighter, airier stitch, you can still wear it during those chilly evenings in the Spring with a little jean jacket!

Well, off to decorate my son’s birthday cake! He turns 14 today!

Happy knitting!

Another pattern coming soon…

Hello there!

Here’s a sneak peek of a new pattern I’m working on.

It’s going to be an infinity scarf.

I’m using a technique I haven’t used before, but learned about a while ago.  It’s super easy and fun!

So stay tuned.  It should be done soon!

Oh, and I’ve published my Hudson Bay Cup Cozy pattern.

You can find it over on loveknitting.com, in my Etsy store and over on Craftsy.

Happy knitting!

Super cozy infinity scarf…

Hey there!

I’ve knit SO MANY infinity scarves for other people but never one for myself, so hearing that this week was going to get COLD again, I grabbed some yarn and knit myself this beauty!

Here’s the pattern:

3 balls of King Cole Super Chunky (approx. 250 yards)
US size 13 needles

Cast on 25 stitches
Knit every row (garter stitch) until you come close to the end of your 3 balls
Cast off in pattern leaving about 12 – 15″ of yarn to sew your ends together.

Super simple and fast!

Stay warm!

This scarf is really warm since it’s knit with 2 strands of  yarn at one time.

It’s a great weekend project, so what are you waiting for?

Happy knitting!

What’s next???

Hi there.

Here’s a couple of photos of the second infinity scarf I’ve completed as promised.

The request was for purple, so I used a dark Emperor purple and added a band of a neutral colour – Parchment – to give the scarf a bit of pop and break up the purple a bit.

Now that I’m done this scarf, I have no other requests, so it’s back to working on my blanket (yes, I’ve made some progress on it LOL), and I’ve decided to make some new cushions for my bed.  What I haven’t decided on yet is which stitch I’m going to use for them.  I want something that has texture and some visual interest. Hmmm?

I hope you’re enjoying your day!

Happy knitting!

They’re done…

Hi everyone!

I’m done the 2 other pairs of slippers I was a making for a couple of girlfriends.  I delivered them today so I can share some photos without ruining the surprise!

DSCN2672

The slippers above were double knit using teal and lemon yellow yarn and for the slippers below I used dark purple and lemon yellow.  The yarn I used is Stylecraft Special DK and I purchase it on-line at loveknitting.com. They have such a large selection and the yarn is excellent quality.

These slippers are super easy and fast to make.

You can find the pattern here!

Now I’m off to finish an infinity scarf I was asked to make and maybe take a nap! Everyone here at my house has a cold and no one slept well last night! Well, maybe the puppy did!! LOL!!

Happy knitting!
