First of all, I finished the final doll in the series and now think I have doll-making out of my system, at least for awhile!
And, as many of you know, I spend most of my evenings with either knitting needles or crochet hooks in hand. This is the latest thing to add to my stash of things earmarked for Christmas gifts...
The pattern is the 'Coffee Bean Cowl' from HERE. It's a fun pattern to knit and I used one skein of Red Heart Boutique 'Unforgettable'. The only modification I did was to increase the length from 19" to 22" - mainly because I wanted to use up the entire ball of yarn.
- THIS is one of those things that fall under 'why didn't I think of that?". I think I'd prefer to hang it inside my purse though.
- And just so you know that this blog has a little bit of everything - I came across a household hint that really does work. If your cooking pots are grungy on the outside, just make a paste of baking soda and vinegar and give them a good rub. Works like a charm!
- Another great stash-buster idea HERE (and perfect for that-day-that-shall-not-be-named gifts too).
- And HERE's another awwwwww project for you!
