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!

Two-Tone Texture41

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 – E is for Earring

Here is my latest entry for the “A” to “Z” Knitting Challenge – E is for Earring!

I knit these little flowers with a fine sock yarn and then just added some beads and an earring hook, I can’t wait to make more in a variety of colours!

Next on the challenge list is F is for Frost Flower. The Frost Flower lace pattern is one of my favourites of all times and I found the perfect yarn for it during my recent online yarn shopping spree at YarnCanada.ca. I will be doing a review of my shopping experience with Yarn Canada, I am a very happy customer!!

Here’s my Frost Flower yarn, I am so looking forward to getting started on this project!
