Yarn ❤︎

It's been a while,
but I heard that today was
I Love Yarn Day,
and I thought it IMPORTANT 
- or just fun -
to share that I do
Still Love Yarn. 

And it loves me back, 
helping me relax 
and unwind
every day.

The One That Got Away

You could call this
The Cowl That Got Away,
 or maybe
The Cowl I Gave Away.
 I offered it to Groovy Girl
while I was knitting it
because the pink
would be perfect with her dark hair and eyes.
I never DREAMED she would take it.
She is a fashionista and this is a hand knit...
I had grown to like it for myself,
but as she carried it away
with a pleased, "Thanks, Mom!"
it was all good with me.

Pattern:  Last Minute Cowl
              free pattern from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas

Yarn:  SMC Select, Silk Wool

Naked Knuckles and Neon

If these were mine...
 I would have worn them today.
If these were mine...
 I probably would have been peppier today.

Guess I'll have to make
a pair
for myself.

(I modified the neon pair by extending the length beyond the thumb
far enough to make a cuff which can be rolled down to cover
the entire length of the fingers)

Yarn:  Grey is Madelinetosh
Green is Regia Fluormainia in Leaf colorway

Best of Both Worlds

I like fingerless mittens
they give me the best of both worlds -
the world where my hands are 
warm enough
the world where
I can still use my fingers.

Pattern: Maize
Yarn: Martha Stewart
