Knitting: Animal Toy
“Florio lived around the corner. He was a young, golden-haired cat who was as handsome as a prince.”
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!
Knitting: Mittens
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...

Add to that fa...
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).
