Knitting: Beanie, Toque
Hats are like pens in my house—they’re everywhere until you need one, at which point they all magically disappear. When I remember to look for one, that is.
Knitting: Cowl
Cowls offer my favorite form of cozy comfort. They’re like a constant hug, scarves that you never have to bother wrapping and tying - and re-wrapping and re-tying when they come undone, which they always do. Nope, just slip the cowl over your head and presto, your neck is warm and you’re good to go.
Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
Swatching. I love it. How else are you supposed to get to know your yarn? Embarking upon a full project without swatching is like getting married without dating. The first few stitches may bring thrills and excitement, but soon enough you’ll wake up next to a half-finished sweater that has betrayed you, wondering how on earth you got there.
Knitting: Shawl / Wrap
