Ruffles and Rainbows

How excited was I when she asked for a rainbow scarf? So much so I dropped everything and got started! (She's usually not into things I make)

And then her little friend started to show interest too. Oh smiling heart :)
Here it is in the making a rainbow scarf with ruffles.

Hooked on Cables

There is a Warm Up To Winter Knit Along going on over at Luvinthemommyhood. I decided to join in on the fun, picked up 2 skeins of Cascade sport weight yarn, and decided to make a hat.

Cables are a new knitting adventure for me and I'm really digging them. The pattern is a joy to knit. It's fun watching the cables and eyelets come about. I'm a little sad it's almost finished...

Done! Maybe I need another :)

Hot Head

Knit, knit, knit, slip...

A hat for him. Waiting for some fleece lining and it's ready to wear. The original band gave me some trouble so I had to go an easier route. May try again for myself. Here is the pattern.

The best part is...he likes it! Yeah.


None have fallen yet this winter here so I have made do crafting up some of my own. This is a wire craft I came across on etsy and let me tell you it is addictive. Craft wire and an eensy weensy crochet hook = lots o fun!


Loving cozy yarn in the winter. Working on fingerless gloves for the little one. They are turning out a bit on the large side, but that's ok. Found some lighter yarn for another pair. The pattern is too fun :)
