So cute! But then all of her patterns are.

I love making cowls for gifts and craft shows and this one is adorable. The yarn is yummy, too.

I love those shades of blue!

This pattern looks so easy to follow! Can't wait to try it!

I like to knit and scarves!

hats, cowls, and fingerless mitts

Scarfs or mittens, also love my beanies.

It's way too hot to think about knitting this kind of stuff! My favorite winter wear accessory to knit is probably a scarf.

I only do loom knitting, not knitting with needles, and I enjoy making dishcloths for my daughter.

Beautiful designs colors!

I love the yarn but am not crazy about the pattern. I have several other patterns that would work up beautifully in this yarn.
