Pintastic Friday – Double Edition

Hey Gang.  Sorry I’ve been so silent this week.  I have been working on some stuff and got a little carried away so I didn’t post like I should have been.  My apologies.  Here is a double edition of Pintastic Friday since I missed last week. We are still highlighting some quick and simple knit and crochet projects for the Christmas rush.  Hope you enjoy.

1. Tablet Cover While this is specifically designed for the Kindle you can modify it for any tablet.

2. Fingerless Mitts Actually named gloves, they are mitts as there are no finger holes, just the hand hole.

3. Hooded Scarf  All I can say is I want one and will someone make it for me?

4. Reversible Hat Great gender neutral hat!

5. Leg warmers Pickles has the best patterns.  These are so cute!

6. Toasty Scarf Again, gender neutral and very nice knit scarf.

7. Baby Slippers Using scant amounts of sock yarn, these are quick, easy, and cheap!

8. Adorable Flower This flower would make a great embellishment for a hat or stand alone as a brooch.

9. Headband Its a knotted headband, very cute and versatile.

10. Bow Scarf While this scarf is designed for Toddlers, you could easily adjust it to fit adults too!

 

That is it for this weeks round up.  Hope you like the picks.  If you make any of them please link up and let me see!  I love seeing projects, be it completed or in progress.

Until next time, stay warm and crafty!

WIP THURSDAY

Hello everyone! Hope this past week was good to you. I don’t know about you but I am so thankful the election is over! Too much hating and ads everywhere for me. But I digress. You are here to see the newest WIP! And…. Here it is!

This is a Bandana Cowl. You can find the pattern here. It’s a really cool pattern incorporating some new elements of knitting for me like wrap and turn for short rows. I really like the way it is constructed. This is one WIP post where you get to see the finished project too. I actually finished the cowl late last night!

It’s a bulky cowl but since it is constructed with short rows you don’t get the bulk behind your neck so you can easily wear it a coat and not have too much fabric at your collar. On the flat photos you can really see the bandana like quality. Its like wearing a bandana without having to do all the folding and tying! 🙂

Try it out. You won’t be disappointed!

Pintastic Friday

Hey Guys! Sorry I missed our WIP Wednesday post.  I didn’t have anything new to post in that department just yet and I have been on a reading binge lately so I’m sorry. 😦

Here is the pintastic friday for this week!

1. Cardigan – I desperately want to make a cardigan or sweater coat for myself sometime soon and this one might fit the bill.

2. Truly Flat Ribbed Hat – Brilliant!

3. Spider Web – (this picture is about 2/3rds of the way down the page.  The pattern is found here.)

4. Effortless cowl – umm, yes please!

5. Yarn Ball Holder Idea – This is such a wonderful idea!  I need to go get an adorable pot now!  World Market trip? I think yes! 🙂

 

The weather is supposed to get really “interesting” later this weekend and early next week here so I may or may not be back next week as we may or may not have power for an extended period of time.  Hurricane Sandy might just turn our area (VIrginia) into soup.  Hope you guys are out of harms way and if not, then I hope you stay high and dry with power!  Good luck to all those East Coasters who will be affected by Terrible Sandy!
