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.

Since I’m super picky about my coffee, I decided to get myself a pour over coffee maker so I could satisfy my coffee needs without making a whole pot. Plus, it just tastes better.

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

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!
