Grass Roots Cowl…

Hey everyone!

Last week I decided I’d pack up my Mission hats and all my yarn because we’re moving soon, but in hind sight, that was a little premature as it left me with nothing to pick up in the evenings! LOL!

So I went and bought some Red Heart Soft Essential yarn at Michaels and decided to make some cowls out of it.

I’ve completed one so far.

It’s a very simple seed stitch and knits up quickly on US size 10 needles.

I wrote out the pattern and am offering it for FREE, so get your copy by clicking here.

I’ve started my second one and am almost done, so will post that one soon!

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!

Introducing “Thomas”…

Hi  there!

I started this crib blanket late last year but never had a chance to finish it.

Between making commissioned pieces, hosting Christmas, ringing in the New Year and then deciding it would be a great time to begin changing our flooring, I just didn’t have the time.

But now we’ve taken a break from changing the flooring (I needed a break from the dust – we’re putting hardwood down) so I had the chance to finally complete the blanket and get the pattern written.

I was inspired by the Burberry colours and hence the name “Thomas” as in “Thomas Burberry”. 😉

It’s a really simple blanket pattern that utilizes only the knit stitch and simple colour changes.  I used “Red Heart Soft” yarn.  It was wonderful to work with.  The blanket ended up nice and cushy!

The finished size is approximately 35″ X 46″ so would make for a really nice lapghan too!

The patterns are available for sale over at loveknitting.com, in my Etsty store and on Craftsy.com.

If you give it a try, please share a photo on my Facebook page! I would love to see your work!

Happy knitting!
