I had a lot of fun making this simple-but-gorgeous piece! This sweater is definitely one that will get people asking “where did you buy that?” quickly followed by “there’s no way you MADE that!” It’s an interesting silhouette, it was literally designed to look good with variegated yarn, and it’s also comfy! It was a no-brainer.
The variegated yarn makes these granny squares the real star of the show on this poncho! Beautiful Spring or Fall accessory that’s totally fringe-tastic.

While browsing Ravelry, I stumbled across something I wasn’t expecting – this unique blue dog with accents to look like a zombie. It is not really my style, but it really caught my attention, and decided to try it out with supplies I already had in my stash.
This pattern is mindless because it’s just one row that you repeat for the entire length. You also don’t have a strict row count, it’s a length suggestion. So you can turn off your brain and just stitch along to a movie. The finished shawl is gorgeous and will make a wonderful conversation-starter accessory for spring evenings when heavy coats aren’t needed anymore.
When I saw this gorgeous little cable collar on Ravelry, meant to go under your coat and basically add a warm turtleneck “sweater” (top half) layer without adding the thick bulk of the full thing, I was intrigued. Most of my wardrobe is basic V-neck tees from Target, and I’d love something to cover my chest below my coat! This pattern is the perfect combination. It’s gorgeous, it’s interesting and stitches up relatively quickly, and it’s incredibly warm and comfortable!
This pattern was so much fun to make and so simple. I am glad I chose the yarn I did! A special, colorful, one-of-a-kind cardigan that you are not going to find in stores! I would buy it and do the same thing again in a heartbeat, just to use a different colorway and have even more bright beautiful sweaters perfect for Spring and Fall!
I think right now, we could all use something simple and quick that turns heads. This one checks all the boxes: simple stitches, one skein project, looks amazing on everyone, and works up in a few hours!
This ear warmer is a gorgeous warm headband with adorable texture and a cute little cinch that uses a very unique strategy! It’s easy enough to be your TV or purse project, but the result is absolutely stunning.
