knitting and yarn

This is the perfect weather to be sitting at home, cozy in your "knock-arounds" and doing something crafty! Sewing, knitting, making things out of felt. Although I don't know how to knit, all of the following images make me truly wish I did!! I am kind of flipping out over that yellow blanket, and was willing to find someone who did know how to make it for me, but the yarn might be a tad bit out of my current budget! Maybe one day. Maybe one day when I can knit it myself! I would, however, be up for finding someone to make me one of those striped blankets in a full size vs. the baby blanket size!

I have referenced Purl Soho plenty of times while looking for quilting patterns, or books, or fabric. But am taking a second glance at it in relation to all of the yarn and knitting projects. I love to go into fabric stores and browse all of the textures, patterns, and colors; but there is something more appealing about yarn. Maybe because you strip away all of those varieties of textures and patterns, and focus on the subtle variations in color and types of yarn. The palettes in some of these blankets and projects are so inspiring, I cannot seem to pick a favorite! Much less stop looking at them all!

Love the striped blanket, too! Looks pretty easy to make!

I know, and it even has the word "easy" in the name! But that doesn't mean it would be true for me! ;-)

Great to hear from you Katherine! Miss seeing you around daily!

Oh, I love your blog! I don't think I knew that you had one. I will definitely keep checking in. Love!

I have been trying (unsuccessfully) for about 4 years to learn how to knit and crochet. Cast-ons are easy, but the actual kniting/crocheting part is boggling my little mind! :-)

(P.S. Can I tell you how much I love that you used the term "knock arounds"?!)
