Here are some of the projects I was working on in January! The bigger things are not going to be posted for awhile since they are birthday gifts and I don't want to spoil the surprise!!! ;)
Pattern: Yorkshire Cowl for Lion Brand
Yarn: Hometown USA in Monterey Lime
Hook: Size P
I had been looking for a bulky cowl pattern I have liked for some time now. This was perfect! Easy pattern, it was done in about an hour. It would make a great gift! The yarn, even though it is acrylic is really NICE and it is soft!!! Lion Brand seems to have come a LONG way from the days of "fun fur"!! I think I might make a few of these for gifts!!
Pattern: Amigurumi Mouse and Door Hanger cat toys from Lion Brand
Yarn: Acrylic Scraps
Hook: Size G
One of my friends brought home a new kitty (Welcome Chloe) and I whipped these out in a few hours (it took me longer to put them together than to crochet them!). They were fun and I think I will make some more! I added a bell in the stuffing of each toy for some interest.
Pattern: Reusable Swiffer Cover from Sugar n Cream
Yarn: Lily Sugar n Cream in Chocolate
Needles: Size 7
Another easy project and environmentally friendly too.
I did make the top portions in plain ol garter stitch as opposedto the "pattern" for a bit of sturdiness!!!Happiness is a dog hair free floor and no more spending $$ on disposable cloths. This would make a cute shower gift along with a Swiffer!!
This is a MYSTERY PATTERN!!! Look for the finished photos soon and maybe a pattern!!!
Ok, back to knitting!!!! :)
