Free Lace Scarf Knitting Pattern

Here is a link for a very pretty scarf by Sweaterbabe, I have to say it’s very pretty and I think that it would be a perfect gift knit.

Does anyone receive Classic Elite Yarn’s Web Letter?  I get it emailed to me every Tuesday and some of the patterns are beautiful!  This week’s pattern is a reworking of the ever popular Kudzu Shawl by the talented Rachel Henry in the yarn Cerro, which is a Pima Cotton and Alpaca blend.  Although I have not used this yarn, the blend sounds beautiful, I think the alpaca will soften the feel along with the look.  There are some really pretty colours, very spring/summer like, which, I don’t know about you, but after the gloom and short days of winter, I’m just itching to get a bit of colour in my stitching 😉


Oh and on a very brief personal note, I had a spinal cord stimulator put in last September for neuropathic pain and I seen my Consultant today who is extremely pleased with me, I’ve had an excellent response to the stimulator and I feel like I am walking on air 🙂

Happy Crafting Folks ♥

Free Sweaterbabe Pattern

So I’m quite a fan of Sweaterbabe, I really like her knits,  I think the detail that she puts in, sets it apart from just your ordinary knit.  I’ve had her Flutter Sleeved Blousy Cardigan in my very long, unrealistic queue for quite some time now,  all I need is to pluck up the courage to knit it as it’s rated advanced on the Sweaterbabe website, although on Ravelry it’s given a medium hardness rating by the people who have knit it previously,  which would make me more comfortable attempting it, as by no stretch of the imagination am I an advanced knitter!  Sweaterbabe has a monthly newsletter and every month there is a free pattern contained within (there is also a paid subscription,  so make sure if you’re signing up that you’re on the right list).  This month it is the sweetest little baby hat and considering I’ve just became a Great Aunt again and a few of my friends are pregnant, I thought this was very apt and maybe helpful if you are in the middle of a baby boom, like I seem to be!

You better move quick though, the free download is only available until 30/01/2014 and then the pattern is chargeable.
