Gifted Ginny

Ginny Scarf

Introducing the Ginny Scarf! It’s a pattern that has a right side, but the wrong side is also attractive, and it’s warm but not heavy. The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn, but you could really make it in just about any weight, so if you want a puffier worsted or bulky weight scarf, just size up the needle along with the yarn and it’ll work! I made this one from Knit Picks Stroll Gradient in Mood Ring (this colorway is actually on sale right now!) – it’s a superwash wool/nylon blend that is super soft and can be machine washed and dried in the dryer, so it’s very easy to care for. You can wear it as an outdoor scarf or an indoor accent to your outfit (it may be a bit on the warm side for this, but many workplaces are not very toasty in the cold months, so maybe not!), however it works best for you.

This Ginny is heading as a gift to Isabella County Restoration House, as part of an effort members of the Isabella Fiber Arts Guild undertook this month to make scarves for guests of ICRH.

New! It’s Nymphadora for Blythe!

Nymphadora Hat for Blythe

Sometimes you want a relatively simple hat that just fits really well. This is that hat for Blythe! It’s a good fit, but not a tight one – it works really well for traveling because it keeps Blythe’s hair in place without leaving hat head when you take it off. It’s also stylish and ready for winter activities!

Knit with worsted weight yarn, this hat is quick to knit and the ears are picked up, so there’s no seaming! It’s easy and you could make one in each of your favorite colors.

Halloween Blythe Swap!

The Halloween Blythe Swap was a lot of fun again this year! My partner has now had the chance to post her photos of her received package, so I, in turn, was able to upload my video of what I sent to her.

free pattern for November!

Here’s another freebie and it’s another super easy shawl to make when you don’t want to pay a lot of attention to your knitting.

Teasel Shawl

This one can be made to whatever size you want it to be, but I have usually made it with one skein of yarn approximately 400 yards in length. It shows off variegated yarn really nicely, like the one pictured here made with Knit Picks Chroma Fingering.

This free pattern is available on Ravelry, LoveKnitting, and Craftsy.

Angelina

Angelina Hat for Petite Blythe

Petite Blythe, like Daisy pictured here, is a great doll for taking along around town or while traveling. She’s small and fits easily in a pocket or purse, and she’s much less likely to suffer damage to her face than a Middie or Neo Blythe. One thing I’ve noticed, though, is that her hair can get a bit static-y and disheveled, and having a hat on helps to keep that from happening. This hat is very easy to knit! It’s all in one piece and takes only a few minutes to complete.
