Knitting: Hair accessories
I made a few scrunchies for my daughter with some sock yarn scraps I had, and I thought I would share my method for making scrunchies with the world. Knitting these in public, made me realize how polarizing scrunchies are…some people really hate them!

Ardour are lined, stranded mittens, knit on smaller than usual needles to provide warmth. The optional laceweight liner adds softness and a touch of wind resistance. Two cuff options are provided: a ribbed cuff and a colourwork cuff beginning with an i-cord cast on. The short colour runs make these a pleasure to knit. The longest run is 4 stitch...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
My son has been asking for replacement wiener dog hat since he was a toddler (someone had given him a factory made one with a wiener dog on the front).
