These fun gingham stockings are perfect for Santa to stuff full of goodies! They work up quickly in Tunisian simple stitch with only 1 seam to sew. Use your favorite color combination for a bright & cheery holiday. I think I’m going to hang oversized gift tags on them instead of trying to put names on them.
Available in my Ravelry store.
Here in the South, frigid winter days are few & far between. We have wind though, lots of wind. When the wind blows, even moderate temps can feel like your ears are icy. This is a simple ear warmer headband which works up very quickly in bulky weight yarn for just that occasion. A great 1-2 hour project.
It’s a free pattern in my Ravelry store…TexasPurl Designs
I am so blessed to have been chosen as one of #Yarnspirations#StitchflixContest winners! This arrived today and I’m so excited to start a project with one of them. (Maybe all of them) lol
I so enjoy making baby blankets. I can always envision a little angel cuddled up in a handmade blanket. The first baby blanket I made with this pattern was planned for a little girl, turns out my friend had a little boy! Surprise! He’s so adorable! Second time’s a charm for this blanket. Tunisian entrelac works up so nicely with Caron Simply Soft. #Yarnspirations
Not that anyone necessarily needs a sweater or shawl to contend with Texas weather year round, air conditioned offices and homes certainly can demand it. I always seem to be chilled in the mornings.
What a nice project to work up! Just a small bit of adjustment with the yarn as I added a new ball so the colors would blend properly and off again. Very quick to make and I love it.
Side note about the yarn: The Patons Lace in Patina is a bit “sticky” to work with. It doesn’t glide though your fingers well. Better to pre-load on your finger than depend on it to flow well. But very soft and pretty.
Thank you to my beautiful daughter-in-law for modeling it.
I had this brilliant idea (in my opinion) for a new kitchen curtain. Now….to find a motif I can work with. I came across an awesome hexagon lace motif on Pinterest and off we go! I have two completed and had to block them to see how they are going to look. I think I’m going to love it.
