A Knitted Hug

Who doesn't need a hug?  This pattern is a quick knit with bulky weight yarn, Lion Brand Hometown USA, in the Charlotte Blue colorway.  The pattern is HUG by Sarah Pasternak.

I think it could use some bling so a bracelet and ring are planned before it is gifted.  Don't you want one, or several?

Tuesday's Temptation

Hey all!  Sorry I missed last week, but I have a wonderful book for you this week.  It just arrived in my mail box and I am already enamored with it. I am sure that you will be too.

Cowl Girls: The Neck's Big Thing to Knit contains 41 designs and I want to make 40 of them!  Cowls, gaiters, balaclavas, and more grace the pages of this incredible text.  Also you will find tips on how to convert from B&F knitting (back and forth) to ITR knitting (in the round) in case you have a favorite stitch pattern that you would like to incorporate into a cowl.

I must admit that I am partial to cowls and gaiters.  I much prefer them over scarves.  Scarves dangle in my way, get caught on things or have to be repositioned over and over.  My cowls and gaiters stay right were I put them and provide amazing warmth which is very important during a Maine winter.  Equally important is that they are small to mid size projects that work up quickly, so if you need a last minute gift that will really be appreciated, think COWL.  

With all this going for it, I imagine you have already clicked the Amazon link to get a copy for yourself.  Enjoy!
