Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼
Here in the St Paul/Minneapolis and St. Croix Valley area, February is “exit time” for many people. We’ve had it with the cold and snow, but it’s mostly the cold that drives us to seek out warm, and sometimes exotic locations to enjoy a respite from the blasted arctic chill.

On the other hand, we also revel in the winter with celebrations like the Hot Air Affair in Hudson, WI and The Winter Carnival in St. Paul, MN, to name a couple of the well-attended events. We do make the most out of all of the seasons.

Inspired by warm winter vacations and the reds of Valentine’s Day, I’ve collected several of my knit and crochet patterns to share in my Loving Winter ♥ ❄ ☃ ☼ bundle. They offer you a selection of projects using variety of yarn weights.

These are available for free download through Saturday, February 21st. Have fun with them.

Happy knitting and crocheting!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Happy Winter vacation!
Thank you for all of the pattern support!
Take care,
Diane

It’s time to knit fabulous yarns for Spring & Summer! One of my favorites is the gorgeous Kavo yarn from Shubui, which works up super quickly and looks lacy and lovely.

Cool cotton and silk make it ideal for warmer weather or too cool air-conditioned spaces. Here’s an easy pattern for a simple lightweight cowl.

Knit with size 7 circulars in a 24” length.

Inspired by my Thursday Night Ladies knitting class at All About Yarn, who wanted a pattern for a simply knit cowl. Thanks, ladies!

Give it a try. Enjoy!

From the manufacturer’s description:
Originating from cavo n. Italian for rope or cable, adj. Hollow. An unusual combination of strength and elegance. With a strong 2-ply cotton core and a decadent silk wrap, Kavo creates incredible knits with exceptional drape and a smooth, luxurious hand. The slight variation in diameter gives this DK weight yarn an organic feel. Intended to be knit on range of needle sizes, Kavo’s fabric is open and airy, yet substantial enough to hold structured silhouettes. The silk wrap adds a subtle touch of sheen, making it a perfect choice for summer wear.
