Every year I say to myself, "Oh there's plenty of time". I'm coming to realize- there's no time!!! You can whip up as many projects on size 15 needles, but there's always someone you want to knit for last minute, or a cousin that's going to make this year to dinner this year and therefore you need something you can knit in an hour or so! Yikes, well I have some ideas for you.... One of the gals here, found a fabulous pattern which happens to be a freebie on Ravelry called Marian designed by Jane Richmond, who by the way has a ton of really great designs...
... It calls for 2 skeins of super bulky, we've been using 2 skeins of Blue Sky bulky of course, and size 19 needles. I knit 2 of them for Scarlett's teachers and they took me an hour each, now that's what I'm talking about!!
Knitty just issued their latest collection of patterns, and being that Spud and Chloe just sent us their new colors of outer, we're loving the Shroom hat which calls for 2 skeins. Super quick and this yarn is amazing!!
Speaking of new colors from Spud and Chloe, they're all here, for Outer, Sweater, and Fine, along with their new patterns which are all fantastic. The new Cotton Multi from Blue Sky is amazing!!! I can't wait to work with this yarn- hmmm, maybe I'll crochet with it....
One more quickie that I love is Lisa's Beret from Through the Loops. Last week Ko dropped by with a some of her patterns, all of which I love and can't wait to knit... The Lorna's Bulky that I showed you last week would be perfect for this beret, one skein.
