Hugs & Kisses Fingerless Mittens

The girly pink colour of this leftover yarn led me to knit gushy lovey dovey cables.  I've listed these for sale in my Etsy store too.

Sweet Hearts Fingerless Gloves

I finished knitting these yesterday with yarn I had left over from a sweater.  The pink was pretty much dictating something with hearts, so that's what ended up happening.  I luff them.

They're up on my Etsy store because I've run out of people to give them to.

Children's Fingerless Gloves

After knitting Erica's fingerless gloves, I still had yarn left over so I decided to knit a matching pair for her little cousin.

This yarn seems to be like the loaves and fishes story in the bible because I had enough to knit a third pair that will fit a toddler.  I thought that would be the end of it but no, I have enough yarn to knit a fourth toddler pair.

I don't know any toddlers so I'll put them up on my Etsy account.

Knit Trivets

 I knit these simple flower shaped trivets.
Details and free pattern are on my Ravelry Page.

Lacy Knit Bar Soap Holders

I like the idea of showering with a never ending supply of bubbles at the ready on a face cloth, so I decided to make these soap holders because I like knitting and I like lacy things.

Taupe Floral Pillow

I sewed this pillow when I switched to fall colours in my living room.  The tutorial to make it, is here.

Hanging Stars

I made this strand of hanging stars for Christmas to the delight and gratitude of my cats who will no doubt shred them the second I turn my back, even though I made them their very own catnip filled stars which they promptly ignored.

This is a very quick and very easy project, and I'm placing a tutorial under the cut.

Mismatched Mishmash Fingerless Gloves

I knit these as a little extra Christmas gift for Erica, who likes oddball weirdness. This girl will lose one or both within 92 hours of receiving them but they were a great way to use up the tiny bits of leftover yarn I am never able to bring myself to throw away.

Darning in the massive amount of ends from all the colour changing took almost as long as knitting these things, but I’ve never knit stripes before and I have been wanting to.
