Red Heart Big Comfy Sweater --- Easy Knitting Pattern!

Oh, boy, I want to make Red Heart's Big Comfy Sweater!! I downloaded the FREE pattern sometime ago. 

I recently discovered that Marly Bird (Spokesperson for Red Heart, and crochet and knitwear designer) has a 49 minute video on YouTube on how to make this easy knit sweater pattern from Red Heart Yarns.

I've ordered my supplies and look forward to making this sweater down the road.

Finger Knit An Easy Butterfly!!

I have a lot of leftover worsted weight yarn from previous projects that I have been trying to decide what to do with... So when I found an easy finger knit video on how to make a butterfly on YouTube, I knew this would be just the right project for me to make use of my leftover yarn.

What do you do with leftover yarn from projects?

Easy Lace Top With Video Tutorial!!

I was surfing on YouTube the past couple of days trying to find some other cool and easy knitting projects to make. 

I came across a YouTube Channel called IKNITS and watched 2-3 of the videos made by the host, Christine. 

After watching Christine's video tutorial (above) on how to knit an easy lace tutorial, I now want to make one for myself. I have yarn that I've stashed aside with no project in mind for the yarn. So, tah dah, I now have the perfect project for my yarn stash, yippee!!

Now, all I need is to find the time to make the easy lace top as I currently have four projects on knitting needles.

How To Add Fringe to A Scarf!!

Believe it or not, I have never added fringe to anything I've knitted!! I am currently knitting two scarves that call for fringe to be added. 

I discovered a video on YouTube from The Crochet Crowd on how to make and add fringe to a scarf. The above video is short and makes adding fringe to a scarf look so easy! 

I look forward to seeing fringe on my completed scarves!

Until my next post, happy crafting!

I've Knitted My 2nd Fred The Cowl Scarf!!

Me wearing the Fred the Cowl
I've finished knitting another Fred The Cowl scarf for my cousin's daughter. It turned out really nicely.

This time I used Deborah Norville by Premier Yarns Serenity Chunky Yarn in the Puppy Dog Tails colorway and is a bulky (5) weight yarn. 

The Puppy Dog Tails colorway ends up looking like a tie dye experiment with light blue and light purple colors with a white background once the yarn used to make something.

The Puppy Dog Tails is a colorway I normally wouldn't gravitate towards, but I found myself really surprised at how much I really enjoyed the colors once I had completed the project. I just hope my cousin's daughter loves the cowl too as she likes purples and blues.
