Top 5: Spring Cowls – Pattern Links

***Aren’t these pretty?***

Cowls are a great take-along project and such a nice fashion accessory.

A lot of them are great for knitters who are just getting started too.

Happy Weekend and Knitting! 🙂

Goodies in the Mail: Fall Knitting Projects! ;<)

knitpicks order

Received this yarn order from Knitting Warehouse a couple of weeks ago and once again, the knitting needles are clicking here!

I feel lost without at least a couple of yarn projects on the go (can you relate?) 😉

When all this yarn is used up, I will have:

A beret, pair of gloves, neck-warmer for me and two pairs of socks for Joe.

I’ll post photos and pattern links, as they are completed. 🙂

I’m really happy with the patterns I’ve chosen this time; hope they all turn out as well as expected.

What are you working on right now? I love to hear about projects in progress and those completed.

Happy Crafting!

PS: If you aren’t familiar with Knitting Warehouse, click through to read my review about this company.

They have great prices and an extensive product line for all kinds of yarn projects. I’ve been happy with all my orders from them.

Knit Handwarmers from CreativeYarn

handwarmers post 2

These are the first pair of handwarmers that I’ve ever made.

I really had fun making these and I love wearing them when it’s a chilly morning and I’m typing a lot at the computer. They keep my hands and wrists nice and toasty! 🙂 

 I think they’re rather cute too. I see a lot of women wearing these now, thought it was high time I had a pair too LOL. 😉

I’m making another pair right now that I plan to wear over thin black gloves for outdoor use. These are going to be in bright gold yarn. I’ll share a pic when I’ve got these completed too.

You can find this pattern and lots of other easy, fun (and many free) patterns over at the  CreativeYarn blog.  Here’s the link for this free pattern: Emerald Green Handwarmers. The woman who hosts this blog is based in Rome so that’s kind of interesting too. Unfortunately, she hasn’t been posting recently but there are a lot of great archive posts and patterns to enjoy over there.

The yarn I used was:

Caron Vickie Howell Sheep(ish) in  Gunmetal Grey:

Here’s my review of this yarn, over at My Real Life Reviews.

♥ the pattern but NOT a yarn that I’ll be using again. 😦

Happy Crafting!  🙂
