Knitting Winter 2017

This Coffee Shop Wrap by Alexandra Tavel,  really caught my eye. It's a dreamy casual wrap pattern free from Lion Brand Yarn.  I'm in a less frigid climate right now and this fits the bill for me. Needles are ready.

If you're in a cooler climate, discover some cozy and fabulous wraps (and more) for cold weather Download Red Hearts Free ebook, A Year of 3 Colorful Ways for more info.

Happy Winter Knitting wherever you are in this big beautiful world.

More happy to you in 2017,

Knitty Fab Five


Yarn Valet - Yarn Bowl.  I love my ceramic yarn bowls that I've collected over the years, but I find the Yarn Valet a real keeper.  It's durable, non-breakable and cute with plenty of room for thicker yarns to flow through smoothly and easily.



Knit Happy Scribbles Mugs are fun, colorful and great for sipping your favorite hot beverage while you're enjoying winter knitting.

This is a grrreat helper when it comes to sticking to your budget and not overbuying yarn.  Happy savings in 2017 as the stashbot guide takes away struggle to know if you are accurate in the amount of yarn you will need for your projects.

The Gauge Counting Set is a nice addition to your knitting tools for checking those gauges. Enjoy your gauge knitting in the new year and beyond.



Sock Knitting time!  Enjoy the yummy soft and beautiful hues of Forever Heathers Yarn.  There are five beautiful colors to choose from. This yarn is durable and perfect for socks, shawls and baby garments.

Happy Knitting in 2017!

Wrapped Up: Yarnbombing at Morris Arboretum











We took a trip over to Morris Arboretum this weekend and were delighted to see the latest installation by fiber artist Melissa Maddonni Haims of Philadelphia. These are a couple of pics of my favorites. Do go and see them in person if you can. I really liked how the pieces were placed throughout the arboretum. It was like getting a surprise every time you turned on the path. You can read more about Melissa and how the installation came to be here. I hope you will visit Morris Arboretum soon if you are in the Philadelphia area. It's such a lovely place and it was exciting to see this type of fiber art outdoors.


Remember, you can always choose to knit or crochet your worries away. 

Stress less,

Margaret
