I recently made a cowl for a swap.  My partner had very specific color choices, and I didn’t see a pattern that would let the yarn’s long repeats shine.  After trying a few different stitches, I came up with the Quick, Fast in a Hurry Cowl.  I used just one skein of bulky yarn to […]

Apparently, Honey Nutbrown‘s whole temperature scarf concept has really taken off.  Even Bernat, one of the larger North American yarn companies, has jumped on board with a year long KAL/CAL. I’ve gotten quite a few questions about the stitch pattern I’m using for my crochet version, so I thought I’d share it.  I wanted the number […]

I have a hard time saying goodbye to summer.  Winters in the Northeast can be brutal, and, to me, the end of summer is the first part of the long haul through the shortened days and cold weather. For the past few weeks, I’ve been passing a display of sunflowers at a local market. Sunflowers […]
