February is Almost Gone!

When I think of February , I think of my mom’s birthday, which is this Sunday! So, Happy Birthday, Mom!  You are the best!

I’m busy knitting this beautiful  super bulky cowl in a seed stitch.  Just kind of made up my own little pattern, very basic, very easy! The color is called Velvet by Loops & Threads. I think the color is the awesome!

Happy Halloween!

Time to get those costumes ready and fill the Halloween bowl with all that candy for those ghosts and goblins!  I really miss those days when the kids were small and all excited to go around the neighborhood, meeting friends and getting all excited to be dressed up in costume.  Fun times for young and old!  Before long my beautiful grandson will be enjoying this tradition.  Time does march on…..

I’ve been knitting a new style of headband for Boho Chic Boutique to feature.  I have used this Super Bulky (6) yarn from Loops & Threads called Cozy Wool. I just love the color and think it would look great surrounding almost any color hair.  The cable is right in the front and will be sure to keep you warm on those cold days ahead.

Class Time!

You can tell that it’s getting to be the beginning of the holiday season, because my Christmas Cactus is blooming!  I just love the colors and the uniqueness of this plant.  Just a little water and sun and it seems to be happy in that spot.

I thought before the Holiday cooking starts, I would show you what I have been working on.  I have been asked to teach a beginners knitting class and am deciding on how best to approach the instruction.  I am going to start to teach the knit and purl stitch.  So, I started to make this pattern that I found here called, Easy Mistake Stitch Scarf.  It alternates the two stitches and becomes an interesting pattern which looks good on both sides and is really easy to follow.  I am using a bulky yarn from Loops & Threads called “Cozy Wool”.   I might suggest that we sew it together to make a cowl instead of a scarf just because this pattern looks so good close up around the neck.

Happy knitting and Happy Thanksgiving,
