A Free (and Fab!) Collection of Lace Knitting Patterns


As any of my regular Veggie….readers already know, I’m a big fan of Knitting Daily.

I’ve shared a few of their free eBooks here in the past and today noted this one for a Lace Knitting collection that is oh so pretty. (click link to get your own copy of this free eBook).

Don’t you just  ♥♥ that mauve shrug?

I’m going to put that on my very long list of knit projects I want to make. 😉

What are you making right now?  

I’m working on a (fairly easy) autumn lace shawl that’s going very well. I’ll be sharing a pic soon along with a review of the yarn I’m using for that project.

In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this free collection of lace patterns from Knitting Daily.

Happy Knitting and Crafting!!!

Free Crochet Ideas: 7 Patterns for Crochet Gifts

Although I haven’t posted any crochet projects recently, I do ♥ to crochet too.

For a long while, I didn’t knit at all, only crochet. My switch (for the most part) to knitting was due in large part to the limited number of crochet patterns I could find, that I really liked.

Happily, more and more designers ARE creating wonderful and varied crochet patterns these days and I plan to get back to “hooking” quite soon. 😉

I recently received this pattern collection, courtesy of Interweave.

It’s easy to get your own free copy and NO SPAM or excessive emails in your inbox. I’ve been getting newsletters from Interweave for a long time and appreciate that very much.

With Christmas just around the corner, there are some great gift ideas included in this one. I particularly like the stunning market bag and the baby “Charlie Brown inspired” sweater. So cute. 🙂

Hope you enjoy these patterns too and do share what you are currently making, if you are a crafter.

I ♥ to hear about projects of all types, in progress or completed!

Happy Crafting! 🙂

Another Stash-Busting Project: Bow-Knot Scarf

bow tie scarf 2

I made this Bow-Knot scarf recently from some black worsted-weight stash yarn that I had.

It was a very hot day when I had this photo taken, hence the inappropriate clothes worn with it. LOL 😉

I do think it will be very nice to wear for the winter though.

An easy project, would be perfect for beginners and didn’t take much yarn either.  Nice gift idea too!

If you’ve been looking for another stash-busting project for your own “yarn pile” you can check out the pattern here.

The only slight error I noted in this pattern, was on the first line that starts with: NEXT ROW, line should have read decreases NOT increases stitch. No biggie but if you’re new to knitting you might wonder about that. 😉

Happy Crafting and Knitting!

Happy Autumn too!  🙂

Now I just need something nice in black to wear it with this fall! 😉

You can read more about the background of making this project and also a link to order this scarf kit here.

Happy Knitting!

And speaking of knitting, if you’re making something right now, do share the details! 🙂


My New (absolute) Favorite Organic Cotton Yarn!

This is definitely my new “go to” cotton yarn of choice! Sooooooo nice! And for so many reasons too.
