Cushion pattern…

My “Horizon” cushion cover pattern is now available for sale over at loveknitting.com.

I created it to go with the “Lost At Sea” cushion cover.   I used 100% Rico cotton.  I just LOVE this yarn! It knits up so well.

Such a great simple weekend project for the beginner knitter!

Happy knitting!

Colourful dish cloths…

Good morning!

I just wanted to share some dish cloths that I made for my neighbour.

She is the sweetest lady always baking us cookies, so I wanted to make something for her to say “Thank you”.

The pattern for the dish cloth is FREE and you can find it here.

I used Rico Creative Cotton Aran for the dish cloths that I purchased from loveknitting.com.

They have so many different colours and it’s great to work with.

So I’ve decided that 2017 is going to be a year of knitting socks and pillow cushion covers.  I already have my first pillow cushion cover on the needles and a shopping cart of yarn over at loveknitting.com for the socks just waiting to be purchased (I want to get my pillow cushion cover done first, but I don’t know if I can wait!! LOL!!)

I hope you have plans to do a ton of knitting in 2017 too!

Happy New Year!

The Sweater hat…

Hi there!

I can’t believe it’s December on Thursday and I’ve only just begun making my Christmas presents.

Not to say I haven’t been knitting, because I have; only I’ve made hats for my husband and son because the weather had taken a turn for the colder!!

The hat I made for my husband was inspired by his favourite sweater!  I really liked how it turned out so I wrote a pattern for it! 😀

It’s double knit using 2 strands of yarn at one time making it super warm!

You can find the pattern here over at loveknitting.com.

I have my sister and brother-in-law coming this weekend and I have to get their presents done so I’ll be knitting like a crazy lady for the next few days!

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!

Quick weekend project…

Hi there.

Over the weekend, I decided to use up some cotton yarn I had left from another project and make a dish towel.

It was a really fast project and super simple utilizing only the Garter stitch (knitting every row).

I used Rico Creative Cotton Aran from loveknitting.com for this project.  It’s one of my favourite yarns to work with.

Well, off to start another dish towel.  This time I’m going to make one to go with the dish cloth I made the other weekend.

Happy knitting!

A new pattern…

Good morning!

I have a new pattern for sale over at loveknitting.com – The Frances Beanie!

It’s my first intermediate pattern!! I initially categorized the pattern as beginner, but when I submitted it for review, loveknitting.com recommended I increase the difficulty to intermediate! Maybe I’m not just a beginner knitter any longer!! LOL!!

Super easy winter hat…

Good afternoon everyone!

I thought I would share today a super easy hat pattern. You can literally complete this hat in a few hours!

It consists of your basic ribbing (knit 1, purl 1)and the garter stitch (knitting every row).  I used 2 strands of DK yarn at one time to make it extra cozy.

You can find the pattern here!
