Jelly Roll Socks made with Three Mini Skeins

  • by

gHot off my needles are these Jelly Roll Socks and I am so excited to share them with you. I love this pattern by Mara Catharine Bryner. What intrigued me about these socks was the rolled cuff and the colorwork pattern in the heel flap and foot. I love knitting socks and wearing them. However, a full sock can be a bit too warm in the spring so this jelly roll sock is perfect on a cool spring day or… Read More »Jelly Roll Socks made with Three Mini Skeins

Twiggy Hat in Cashmere and Merino Yarn

  • by

Last year, when Janet and I were talking about attending the Woodstock Fleece Festival in October, we decided to make ourselves hats for the event. We had heard that it could get quite cold in the barns and that was where my booth was. Janet made the Seashell Beret and I made the Twiggy Hat by YYC Knits which is a free pattern over on Ravelry. Both hats used one skein of yarn. I used my cashmere and merino yarn and it was a delight to knit with.… Read More »Twiggy Hat in Cashmere and Merino Yarn

Easy Goes It Shawl

Easy Goes It Shawl

  • by

I’ve recently completed my Easy Goes It Shawl by Finicky Creations. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. It was a fun and easy to knit. The shawl grew quickly and there was enough variation in the pattern sections to keep it from getting boring. I knit the majority of this shawl while in the car, in the good old days when we could still go places!  I chose to knit this shawl in my SW Merino, Cashere and Nylon yarn.… Read More »Easy Goes It Shawl

I love when my customers share their finished projects with me.

She made them using my donegal sock yarn in the colorway Berrylicious. My donegal yarn features black and grey flecks on a merino base. Each skein is a generous 438 yds/100g made of 85% Superwash Merino… Read More »Mary Ann’s Socks

The pattern is easy… Read More »Sock Pattern: Butterfly Lane Sock Pattern

Winter in April

  • by

It’s winter in April. I can’t believe it! Spring is taking its time arriving this year. On Facebook people are joking it’s January 108th or something like that and I can’t help but smirk at the sarcasm. Actually, it’s April 18 and yesterday while walking my grand-fur baby I took this picture of a snowman on my neighbor’s front yard. The wind was blowing and it was snowing. Don’t get me wrong, I quite like winter and all the fun… Read More »Winter in April
