Back from Break

After taking a much-needed break over the holidays (and recovering from my annual Christmas bought of bronchitis), I’m back at it! I’ve got 3 new patterns in various stages of completion, plus and oldy-but-goody that never got released, all waiting for me to finish them up and release them. I’m using three fun new yarns – the blue cabled sweater is in Cascade’s Ultra Pima Fine, 100% Cotton. The gray tweed sweater is Remix, a unique blend from Berocco of 30% Nylon, 27% Cotton, 24% Acrylic, 10% Silk, & 9% Linen. And lastly the socks are Plymouth Yarn’s Diversity, which is an acrylic/polyester blend. And the best part – all three are machine washable!

Marshes Cabled Sleeveless Shell

New pattern release! Inspired by the ebb and flow of the salt water marshes of Cape Cod near where my grandparents lived, this sleeveless shell is worked in Classic Elite’s Firefly.

Buy on Ravelry Buy on Craftsy An empire waist helps this shell flatter any figure.

Men’s Cabled Work Gloves

Worked in a tough cotton, these gloves are meant to be used then tossed in the washing machine.  Inspired by my in-law’s need to take care of their horses mid-winter in Ocala, Florida (which gets surprisingly cold), yet maintain the ability to use their fingers in delicate maneuvers, these fingerless gloves have a cable to give them some pizazz but in their essence these are work gloves.

Toddler Socks

My son needed new, warm socks for this frigid New England winter and I had trouble finding anything besides a warm weather thin sock for sale in local stores – so I decided to knit some for him. He even picked the “color” yarn!  These are super easy socks and knit up very quickly.  There’s nothing fancy.  If you can knit, purl and decrease (k2tog/ssk) you can make these.  Yes, you have to turn the heel but it’s all written out for you.  The leg and cuff are a simple 2×2 ribbing so the sock won’t slip down the leg.
