I named this shawl after the yarn I used … Vanna’s Glamour. I really loved working with this yarn. It’s so soft and sparkly.
One would think that the metallic thread would be scratchy, but it’s not. The shawl remains soft and comfortable to the touch. It’s lightweight enough for warm spring and summer evenings.
I’ve designed this pattern to be easy, so it’s a perfect project for beginners. I’ve also included links to clear and concise video and written tutorials. Although this pattern is easy, the end product looks very sleek and stylish. Read more
Some days, I get so excited about knitting that I tend to get carried away. This was one of those days. I was making a cute tea cosy that looks like a cabled sweater (see the free pattern here). I couldn’t wait to see how it would turn out.
I will admit, I may or may not have also been distracted by the TV. And I didn’t count the cables correctly. All this excitement and distraction resulted in the little sweater having one side longer than the other. Oops! Read more
We all love those little things that make our lives easier. Life is busy and we need to get to do those things that we love ASAP! I’ve put together a little Crochet Cheat Sheet for you that I hope will do just that.
How can something so easy look so fabulous? Nobody will believe you when you tell them its a knit!
I love this scarf so much. The pattern gives it such an interesting textured look. There’s no need to sew in the loose ends as they create the fringe. You may want to knot the tips to prevent fraying.
This scarf is knitted length-wise, not from the bottom up as most scarves are. It’s done in a seed (or moss) stitch to give the scarf more texture. I’ve used a velour type yarn, but it will work with any yarn, really. I chose this yarn simply because I liked the feel of it.
