Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
While they were not my favorite candy (that honor went to Root Beer Barrels), Circus Peanuts were still a childhood staple.

My cousin, Tasha, is super fashionable and I never know what to get her. This year I designed a short cabled button up cowl in super bulky yarn for her.

Knitting: Mittens
Being knit with two strands of worsted yarn (and at a tighter than normal gauge) makes these mittens not only eye catching,
Knitting: Mid-calf Socks
Construction: Knit toe-up with Turkish cast-on and Sherman short-row heel. Written for magic loop or two circulars. “Because of the placement of the decreases and increases this sock does not have as much stretch as most patterns.”
