Is Walmart Cheaper for Yarn?

Is It Cheaper to Buy Yarn on Walmart

Make a name for yourself and then just sit back and reap the benefits. I heard this from my dad most of my life. Is that what happened to Walmart. They’re known by their low price advertisement. But is this true when it comes to yarn or is it just a perception? Watch this 3 minute video that might give you a good idea.

Santa Hat

Every year someone will ask for a Santa hat pattern. This year I decided I would do an adult version. I hope you guys will like the textured brim and the knitted pom-pom. Both are a bit different but I think they make the hat a fun design.  This video is only for the hat but the knitted pom-pom video should be available shortly. The written pattern does include both the hat and the pom-pom.

The step by step video link for the hat pattern is below. Please feel free to share your questions, comments or suggestions. All of them are greatly appreciated.

Wire Spiral – Easy How to Video Tutorial

How to do a Wire Spiral Video Tutorial

wired spiral

A wire spiral is very useful for several craft projects. I like to use them as card holders for seating arrangements. You can also put short announcements, reminders and even a quick list. They can also hold your post it notes off your computer screen.  For that I might need 12 bakers dozen. Not to worry, because they are quick and easy to make. Now all you have to do is make the base and for that I have a cute idea below.

This short video shows how to make wire spirals with supplies you probably already have at home. No special tools are necessary.  ( Read More )…

Braided Headband on a Round Loom

Loom Knit Braided Headband

I wanted to design a warm braided headband that would look cool and stylish. This project takes very little yarn, and can be done in just a few hours. I did a second headband in a light pink which my daughter loves. I can’t wait to see all the colors you guys will use. I’m considering some happy bright colors for the next one. Some Caron Simply Soft in jewel tones would be beautiful.

Below is the step by step video tutorial for the pattern.

Rib Stitch Napkin Holder Pattern Video

Napkin Holder

The Rib Stitch napkin holder is part 3 of the table setting series. Recently I posted the Rib Stitch Flower and completed the Tiny Pumpkin pattern. I’m very excited about this project because like the other recent patterns you can make this one with just a little bit of yarn and just a little bit of time. It’s perfect for personal use and for gift giving, for a new homeowner, a ladies group or party favor.

The pattern is available for purchase but the it’s very simple and the video is enough for the average person to complete the project. I do suggest watching the video from the start to the end where I give a few cool suggestions.

The Rib Stitch Flowers are sweet little puffy daisy looking floral. They make great pin cushions, gifts in stocking stuffers, table settings for a ladies luncheon and perfect for bridal or baby showers. I hope you guys like them as much as I have enjoyed designing and knitting these cuties.

This is another scarp yarn project. Maybe I’m the only nut that just loves to use little bits of yarn to create pretty and practical items especially if I can give them away.

Chinese Wave Stitch

So I’m officially obsessed. The Chinese wave stitch is beautiful. I can tell you that as much as I tried I could not get a picture that would do justice to this stitch. It is thick and soft, lacy and warm, feminine but man friendly. Put in simple terms – I love it ! I’m hope you will too.
I have so many plans for this stitch. My first project will be for a washcloth. I love to give washcloths with homemade soaps.  The pattern will be available on Patreon and at my store shortly:

Loom Knit the Basic Basket Weave Scarf

Basic Basket weave Scarf

The basic basket weave scarf is great pattern for a quick and easy gift. If you start early you can finish the project in a day. What I like the most about it is that the stitch is unisex so you can make a matching set for a cute couple. One more thing to consider is the fact that the stitch is reversible. How cool is that?

Avoid Knitting Ladders with Knitting Looms

Avoid Knitting Ladders on Your Loom Knit Hat

Avoid Knitting Ladders On Knitting Looms

A few of my followers have asked me to show them how to avoid knitting ladders. Ladders happen when you have stitches that are more loose than the rest of the fabric.  They cause an ugly seam down your hat. After finding these on a hat you’ve been working on for several hours is very disappointing.
