Time to Start Planning for Winter!

I know, it sounds ridiculous and numerous individuals are probably going to want to smack me for saying it, but when you are talking about something like knitting, you really do need to start early!

Whether you are creating additions for your own wardrobe, making gifts for family and friends, or preparing for holiday craft shows, time is not on your side when you produce goods that are quite time consuming to complete. That’s why I am in the process of finalizing a number of patterns for winter accessories!

I just added the pattern for my Two-Tone Textured Wrist Warmers yesterday.  I loved designing this pattern and was so impressed with the Lion Brand Landscapes yarn used for the warmers pictured above. I used a Red Heart Super Saver yarn for the ones below, making it a very inexpensive but equally attractive option!

Now that I have discovered a liking for working on double pointed needles, after 40 years of avoiding them, I have a multitude of new pattern ideas milling about in my head!

I posted my newest cowl pattern earlier this month, pictured above, and have just started another new pattern today for a hat and wrist warmer set which I plan to publish next week, so if you are looking for winter projects to add to your knitting wish list, please stop by for a visit!

“A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge – B is for Bracelet – REVISITED

So, I posted earlier today that I had finished my “A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge – B is for Bracelet, but when I took some time to think about it, I realized that I had stepped away from my original idea of what I wanted to create and I think I sort of cheated at my own challenge!

What I created isn’t really bracelet, more of a cuff or a wrist warmer which was not the idea at all!  I got caught up in the idea of doing something quickly, and although I do actually like the finished item, it is not even vaguely what I had in mind.  Here is my second attempt, this is more like it!!

Now I can move on to the next step of the challenge with a clear conscience and with a little note to myself to take my time and stay true to my ideals!
