…and even cheaper with a few free patterns.
I needed hand towels for the kitchen. My mother needed a bit more on her KnitPicks order to get free shipping. So I ordered a few skeins of CotLin to help her out. I made a smaller version of the hand towel from Mason Dixon Knits. I liked it, but not enough to make two or three more just like it. So I worked out a few more patterns. Here they are.
I went a little nuts in anticpation of the arrival of my first great-niece. You don’t even want to know how many little sweaters, hats, and booties I made. Baby stuff is so much fun. Here’s the pattern for the matching set of Pirate Hat & Booties. Ahoy!
Note to All the New Robot Lovers: Illusion Knitting really is simple. I blogged about it here.
These three illusion scarves were made as gifts. The Alien Scarf was designed by Shetha Nolke; the pattern can be found in the fabulous Stitch N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook by Debbie Stoller. After starting the Aliens, I was so tickled with them that I had to try my hand at making my own charts and so we have Robots and Cats in Shades.
