I’m a pretty avid knitter, but I almost exclusively knit sweaters. Sometimes among the slew of never ending collars or that dreaded second sleeve (the feeling of accomplishment after finishing the first one never lasts long), I need to just finish a project. Whether it’s chunky yarn, or a small result, I sometimes need to remember how great it is to finish a project. Here are some of my favorite quick knits.
Anything for babies is guaranteed to be finished quickly and look adorable. The color change in these cute booties keeps the pattern interesting, but not so interesting you won’t finish in a couple of hours.
I love bracelets, they are my go to jewelry. Maybe it is because after my watched died about 15 years ago, I never replaced it, and my arm felt naked without something there. This bracelet is quick and easy to crochet, and after the first one, you will want to make more. I mean, you need one in every color, right?
My entire family loves crocheted dishcloths, my mom has even brought me yarn as a not so subtle hint that she needed more. I am not kidding. Awhile ago I was introduced to a tulle dish scrubby, and loved it, and may have even taken it apart, to figure out how to make my own. So if you are in my family, I am sorry to say, no dishcloth this year, you will be getting a scrubby instead.
I’M BACK! And I am so excited to share with you this necklace using last week’s crochet flower pattern. This project merged my two current crafting loves right now, crochet and jewelry making. Don’t let it fool you, it really isn’t that difficult to make (I think I may be getting the hang of those jump rings…finally). I LOVE how it turned out, and I hope you do too!
I have been finding all kinds of ideas of things to crochet, and I am excited to share them with you! My next little goodie involves these cute little flowers, and just in case you didn’t have a Grandma Fluffy that taught you to crochet like I did, I thought I would teach you the simple stitches that are needed to make these flowers.
It’s raining, it’s pouring and this craft lady needed something to keep from snoring. They say it is officially Spring… But here in Portland we are in our longest season – RAIN. And it has been a wet one this year. Thankfully the rain hasn’t stopped the flowers and trees from starting to bloom, and I wanted to steal (or copy) some of that beauty for my front door. I hope you enjoy this wreath.
Here in Portland, the last few weeks have had much more winter than we’re used to. It’s settled down to our typical rainy days, but we were struggling for a very long time! Because of the super chilly weather, I’ve been making great use of my knitted projects. Make some of your own to stay cozy all winter long!
Simple Cable Scarf
Cables make a thicker knitted fabric, which helps create an even cozier scarf. I love the striped pattern and fringe on this scarf, and that it’s so easy to customize!
