My new go to...


Lucy Neatby Knit Pattern Scrunchie Hat or Headband
Are the holiday doin's getting too stressful?  Why not try a realaxing knitting project to calm your nerves?  While my world has been spinning a little too quickly lately, I decided to try this lovely one skein (or stash buster-yay!) pattern by designer Lucy Neatby. I knitted my scrunchie hat with Boku from Plymouth Yarn on US size 8 (5.0) circular and/or dpns, but there are handy charts and info to help you figure out gauge with different sized needles and yarn suggestions. There are also instructions for completing this project as a headband. It has been my go to hat since it came off the needles and I've really enjoyed wearing such a comfortable hat. 
Hope you're knitting and staying stress free.

We were lucky to come through Hurricane Sandy safely here.  These pics were taken at one of my favorite places to visit, Pickering Creek Audubon Center.

Remember to enjoy a deep relaxing breath today with your knitting and count each blessing with every stitch.

A cozy bolero...

We had so much down time due to Sandy, I decided to dive into some WIP's and this bolero is one of them. The Cozy Bolero is knit with super bulky yarn and makes a quick weekend projet.  The pattern is very clear and easy to follow. 
Our hearts go out to everyone who is suffering due to the loss of family members and the destruction of hurricane Sandy.  We are all in it together.
Margaret (is very grateful tonight)
