I was so pleased to see Lion Brand step up their game when they introduced a line of free patterns geared especially for us “Curvy” girls! Yay! I must admit that the Cowl Neck Knit Tunic is looking like a high priority on my list. I would like to make it for the winter 2015/16 season, but I already have so many projects backed up here! Grrrr. I’ve included the link here – now go have fun!
And speaking of backed up projects list, I am actually hacking away, successfully, at one that, surprisingly enough, I have never done before; the Christmas list. Some of you may be thinking “What? All these years you’ve knit and crochet and have never gifted them before?” I know, I know. Every year I think about it, around December 12th. You see the problem. But this year, I’m on a mission. No, I didn’t start in July like I was supposed to, but I have chosen fast, crocheted hats and beanies for the young ‘uns, so this plan should work. So far, I have punched out two this week and intend to be done with another tonight – woo-hoo! I found the burger hat online from a talented fiber artist – click here for the pattern!
As almost an afterthought, I wanted to include some pics of my completed Autumn Wrap. I know I did mention it a few posts earlier, and I have been working on it diligently in the meanwhile. Not as happy as I thought I would be . I don’t seem to have a sense of color matching like I should. 😦 A little caveat for those of you who want to get decent pictures of your work: don’t let the husband do it!
