Twin Warmest Winter Scarves

20131115-092133.jpg

I started knitting the Warmest Winter Scarf in September of 2013 and I finished it on November 15th of 3013. I used US # 10 Circ. needles. The Yarn is I Love This Yarn in Brown.

These scarves will be Christmas gifts for a special couple in my life. 🙂 I made the darker scarf first and then asked my Hubby what I should make for the other half of the couple. He suggested matching scarves. Great idea. I’ve made one for myself in the past and I love it when the temps and wind chills are below zero in the frozen arctic…. You get the point 🙂

The pattern for these little angels was really easy to follow. I whipped up all 4 of them using scraps of yarn in about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Ravelry Link

Snowman Hat Tutorial

20131104-112808.jpg

I’ve been seeing tons of super cute snowman hats on Pinterest lately. I wanted to make some for my kids but I didn’t find the exact pattern I wanted to use. So I knit a basic hat and crocheted a carrot nose. Buttons eyes added a nice and easy finishing touch.

So here goes my first crack at a tutorial in case you’d like to make something similar.
