Summer begins this Friday so why not use vibrant colors? Currently on my hook (I intend on knitting with it as well). I’m loving the new Red Heart Super Savers Stripes yarn colors…currently working with ‘Favorite Stripe’. They can be found at many craft stores/online for just about $3.00.
What a cool ‘Love the neighbor’ message.
#WIP – Work in progress…
itty bitty preemie baby hats (and newborn for Charity). Using my 8.5″ #8 circular needles. Depending on the size of the hat I want I cast on 35 or 42 for preemie size.
Knit around creates a rolled edge hat. At 3″ 1k. k2tog *. Cut a 10″ length of yarn, weave through the top to cinch the hat, weave in the ends.
Enjoying a recent deal on Caron Simply Soft yarn, from Michael’s….love the colors!
Triangle Scarflette on my needles this week. Rocking the colorful sock yarn.
On my plate, a hearty meal:
Yellow (Brown rice), pink beans – made with chuncks of zucchini), tostones (green bananas) with a lot of toasted garlic, avocado & cukes, Veggie, Gluten-free & Vegan life.
Charity knitting for newborn babies on my needles. The perfect on-the-go project.
WIP Wednesday…on my needles.
I switched it up this week and started using large needles… making a garter stitch throw (in Oatmeal) that will go to charity. There are enough projects my Stitch & Bitch work on, this one is going to: The VA Nursing Home.
It’s looking and feeling like Spring lately.
This is my new soft Cotton mini yarn stash. It wasn’t easy selecting from the tons of colors Knit Picks offers on this yarn. It’s cotton & modal blends. I find this very interesting about Modal: http://www.aaatextiles.com/knit/Modal.html
The sheen is pretty and is so much softer than the Lily Sugar & Cream yarn I’ve used.
Here are some of the colorful skeins I bought.
