LetsTalkAboutKnits!

Ick its so nasty outside! All I want to do is stay inside and drink hot cocoa, watch Christmas romance flicks and KNIT!

December in Saint Louis definitely makes me wish I lived somewhere much warmer, like San Diego or Miami or Puerto Rico or... well you get it.
But I'll manage for now, until I meet mister charming to take me away to his beach front property where we will live happily ever after- with a tan. : )

Anyway- back to the subject, knitting! My favorite pasttime. I've been working on a few projects, but I can only disclose details on one...
Usually I get too impatient to finish what I started, but this time, I can finally say I completed my scarf. See pictures below. Its a beautiful cabled 'cowl.'
The project I've spent that last couple nights on is a pair socks. So far I only have one completed. Here's hoping it can keep my attention so I can finish the other!

Cowl made by Madelyn, Earwarmer made by Julia (sister)

Chanel of course

  1. I am kind of obsessing over your knits! Question for you! What is the difference between crocheting and knitting?
    I have a beautiful red and silver sparkly scarf I started crocheting last winter, ran out of yarn, by the time I got more yarn I forgot how to crochet! Now I don't know how to finish the scarf! I need someone to re-teach me!
    I still have the lovely scarf Kay Shores made me.

    I think you should make knitted bracelets of some sort with bling added for xmas gifts!

  2. Gorgeous! I LOVE knits! And your blog is beautiful. Do you ever do button swaps by chance? I'd love to if you're up for it.
