Malabrigo Rios yarn offers up wonderful colors to pair together. Better yet, the fiber is super-soft and a joy to wear. The pattern came about when …

Gimme Shelter Cat Blankets

The pattern below includes some very simple ideas for making blankets for cats in animal shelters. I’ve put together yarn suggestions and stitch pattern recommendations to match the weight of the yarn (either bulky or super bulky). The blankets are dense to offer the cats plenty of cushioning for warmth and softness against hard cage floors. The pattern makes for great social …

Kellie Fingerless Mitts

My nephew and niece-in-law (I call her our “nice-in-law) are avid photographers. They love catching early morning light, but it can be mighty chilly! Fingerless mitts are just what they need to keep their hands warm, while their fingers are free to move the controls on their cameras. I adapted my Kellie Fingerless Gloves pattern, replacing the fingers with ribbing …

Braided Cable Hat – Ravelympics 2010

There’s nothing like a good challenge to spice up life! I had a blast (in panicky sort of way) participating in Ravelry’s knitting mayhem otherwise known as Ravelympics 2010. Thousands of knitters make projects with the idea of casting on during the Olympics’ opening ceremony and being done by the closing ceremony. Knitters can choose different events to “compete” in – …
