Catching Up

We have been off on adventures!!! We just returned home from a camping trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We came back with tons of wonderful memories. I can't wait to get more pictures posted!

In the mean time I have finished a new pullover knitting pattern and I can't wait to show it off at Chelsea Yarns tomorrow. The New Jersey Wool Walk starts tomorrow. Do you have your passport?

I will have a trunk show set up with my patterns at Chelsea Yarns so I hope if you are in the area you can stop by!!

Okay just one more picture from our fantastic vacation.

Happy kids!!!!

The Joey Infinity Scarf

This week I released a new knitting pattern "Joey Infinity Scarf." It is worked flat on straight needles and can be closed with 4-5 buttons.

These fabulous tree buttons are from Wooly Moss Roots.

I have made quite a few of these infinity scarves over the Fall & Winter and I have been testing them out and wearing them everywhere :) I wanted to make sure of the sizes before releasing the pattern. The greenish brown version is made with two skeins of Tosh DK (450 yards).  I alternated skeins as I worked that version.

The gray or "Slate" version is out of Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein! This version used one skein (560 yards).  I love the Yowza because I didn't have to alternate skeins and I loved the length of it.

I have also made quite a few versions of this pattern in a cowl length.  I didn't include the information for the cowl sizes in the pattern, but I did include notes on the pattern page for making it cowl size.  I suggest having at least 225 yards of a DK or lightly worsted weight yarn. Work to desired length and then work the button band.

On the cowl I secured the top button approximately 7" from the edge. Then I buttoned the other three buttons.  This makes the cowl a funnel shape and It really shows off the buttons and is so comfy to wear.

These infinity scarves work up quickly and I think they make a great gift.  I also love the excuse to hunt for good buttons at fiber festivals :)
