Monarch scarf

I found this yarn at one of the Greenville South Carolina local yarn shops called Yarn and Y’all at the recent Southeast men’s knitting retreat. I used one skein to make this scarf in a crocheted linen stitch and also used a size H 5 mm crochet hook.

Hat for me!

Finally took a break from making gift hats and made one for myself using Mochi Plus yarn and this pattern for size adult-medium. I also used my new larger size Clover pompon maker! It really makes the best ones 🙂


Girl’s hat with two buttons

This is a girl’s hat for ages 1 to 2 years old with two small buttons. I adjusted this pattern by using a 5 mm hook instead of a 5.5 mm hook.

  

Girl’s hat with flower button

This is a girl’s hat for ages 1 to 2 years. I found this great button at Purl’s Yarn Emporium in Asheville. I don’t remember what size crochet hook I used 😦

  

Tiger Iron Jasper and Copper Pendant

This pendant has beautiful browns and rust colors striped throughout the jasper and catches the light in different ways giving off different shades of colors. It is wrapped with copper and comes on an adjustable cord/ribbon necklace. The pendant measures close to 3 inches.

Homespun afghan

Got some yarn sale yarn from my friend Teresa and think that most of it was Lion Brand Homespun. I decided to make a giant granny square afghan and I think it turned out great!

Tiger eye scarf

I was in Washington DC over the weekend for the national book festival. I ventured out to find Stitch DC, which is a great little yarn and knitting shop, to work on a scarf project. While I’m sitting there I hear someone say my name so I look up and there is Janet! We figured out that we had not seen each other in 24 years. How crazy to just happen to run into one another!!! We had a great time catching up while she was taking a knitting class 🙂

This scarf’s name is inspired by Janet’s comment that it was the color of tiger eye. I used a great Italian tweed yard and used a half double crochet stitch through the back loop.

Funky Chunky Browns Scarf

I decided to use some left over brown chunky yarn I had left over from another project and I also had two skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky hand-dyed “field mouse” yarn so I decided to make this HUGE scarf!  I set my knitting board to 1.25 inches and used a simple stockinette stitch.  Here’s the result!

A Scarf Fit for a Fisherman, or Someone…

Here is a really neat scarf I made (and have mailed out to someone for a Christmas gift) from Lion Brand Fishermen’s brown and white wool yarn.  Since I used my knitting board, the scarf comes out double knit so the front and back look exactly the same.  It’s going to keep someone warm this winter! 🙂
