Cables? YES! The more the merrier. This piece is the hottest thing in my wardrobe these days. It's springy, soft and feels so good on the skin. I was happy to have it a few weeks ago when we had a 9" snowfall. Wore it to fill my bird feeders and walk the dog. I… Continue reading Alcova Scarf
There was an email from the Indie Untangled Trunk Show for Rhinebeck offering up a delicious colorway of a neutral wool with POPS of orange and hints of violet and blue - it was so special, I had to order it. Yarn: La Bien Aimée Merino Singles Colorway: Automne A Rhinebeck It had to be… Continue reading Spice Cake, a Rhinebeck Souvenir
Find it on Etsy Find it on Ravelry I've been making this scarf for a little while and I'm really enjoying it, so it's now an available pattern. So far, my favorite yarns to make this in are Berocco Folio and Tosh merino light. Both very different yarns - the Folio is an elegant and… Continue reading Spice Cake Scarf
This pattern is the Holey Cocoa! by Silvia da Silva which is my go-to for having an 'around the town' project in my purse. I added a little bit of width to it, because I love it as a wrap or scarf. The yarn is Gina that I found while traveling.
This Windowpane Scarf was so easy to make and the yarn creates all the "WOW". I had this yarn sitting around for a while and lately, I've been on a mission to use up my older stash when possible. I can't say I'm on a "yarn diet" because, as with ANY diet, I am not… Continue reading Windowpane Scarf
Makes a great loooong wrap or a very bulky scarf. FUN. This scarf used 1000+ yards of leftover Lion Brand Heartland from my Small Flower Blanket and some cowls I made. Had a lot of stress going on recently - thankfully this project kept me distracted so I didn’t lose my mind! I just switched… Continue reading Floor Length Scarf
This yarn is amazing - so soft, but it's a bit fragile, so I crochet with it. It feels like it may break when blocking if you do knit with it, so maybe be extra careful. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I had to snap one and it was near 90 out (yes,… Continue reading Alpine Frost Wrap/Scarf
I just can't gift this one, I have too many things that will go with it. The yarn was a gift for a friend and it's called 'A Good Yarn Canada Sexy Sock' in the colorway 'Leather & Lace, Stevie Nicks'. An easy to memorize pattern and what a SUPER yarn! Very calming and easy… Continue reading Leather and Lace
Just some pinches of cables in a delicious worsted weight wool. Just 2 skeins of Malabrigo Yarn Rios (dreamy) and this was a great project for flying and waiting around in airports. I forgot how fast worsted weight projects can be!
In the last month I've made quite a few things. I was overwhelmed with work drama so I tuned out from everything - facebook and other sites - for a bit and really just enjoyed the quiet. So meditative to bring life down a notch and just enjoy the scrumptious and squooshy yarns and the… Continue reading Quiet time produces so much joy
