I wasn’t sure about the colors in this cake at first. The more I worked it, the more I liked it. As I finished it last night, I prayed for safety for all in the path of Hurricane Harvey. Ends up it’s a quite fitting name as Harvey started affecting our area as soon as I finished blocking it this morning. #PrayforTexas #HurricaneHarvey #LionBrandMandala
The Mandala yarn is a wonderfully soft acrylic to work with and has very nice stitch definition.
I think these Sinkmates are just darling. I wanted to use them as hotpads. Although this is a knitted pattern, the thickness of the Tunisian Knit stitch was exactly what I was looking for!
The designer (Lorilee Beltman) uses the proceeds from this pattern to benefit Special Olympics. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sinkmates
This is my first pattern design and I couldn’t be more thrilled that it’s become so popular. Normally, I design more from necessity than from my own creativity. But this little gem was special after I learned the beauty of knitted slipped stitches. It’s quite simple and can be adapted to all sizes. And…..the pattern is FREE! Get the pattern HERE.
Photo on the left are the preemie hats I’ve made. Special thanks to Raveler “grantrm” for the adult version she made pictured on the right.
We’ve moved! And now I’ve had to reorganize for the space I have. I entered it all into my stash on Ravelry. What a nice feature of the site. I made notes on each entry as to location (bins, closets, totes, etc.) and got it all put away.
So….please don’t tell my husband I have 41 Miles of yarn!
Well, at least I finished a project this month. Two actually. We took a day trip Saturday and I didn’t have to drive so I took along some kitchen cotton and made a little crocheted hot pad. Ravelry link here: http://bit.ly/2fG0RSk
I’ve also been experimenting with knitting short rows and put together this scrumptious scarf. I used some mystery yarn I purchased at a show a while back. Pretty sure it’s acrylic. But beautiful!
