The fireplace is roaring, my husband and 8 year old daughter just finished baking chocolate chip cookies, and now my husband also has a pot of hot cocoa on the stove top for me. There are few things I enjoy more on a cold winter evening. I am spoiled rotten sometimes. All this pampering leaves me plenty of time to get some knitting and pattern writing done. I also spent the day finally getting my Facebook page up and running for my knit and crochet items:
If you get some time, you should stop by and give it a “like”
I have no idea where I am going with it or what my grand plans are, but for now I am using the page as a place to showcase my creations and communicate with people who are interested in my designs. I will still be posting my free patterns and designs here, on Threaded Together.
Our weather in south east Virginia has been continually cold, especially since our snow storm here last week. It’s quite appropriate that I have spent much of that time knitting and crocheting boot cuffs (or boot warmers) for some friends of mine. After creating no less than six patterns in the last two weeks, this pair is by far my favorite. An inspiration picture was shared with me on Pinterest and I started on making a pattern for it right away.
To complete this pattern you need to have knowledge of cable knitting, knitting in the round, and picking up stitches along a piece of work along a side (shown at 3:45 in the video).
