~I really enjoyed knitting this new-to-me stitch, the Linen Stitch, even though it took fifteen minutes to knit one row of the scarf. The yarn was from “Three Irish Girls.” I love the look it gives to the scarf. The pattern is from Churchmouse Yarn and Tea. It is an easy stitch to learn and to knit. Look at the beautiful drape. I am going to love wearing my new scarf. The linen stitch is quite simple: Row 1: k1, sl1wyif (slip 1 stitch knitwise with yarn in front) Row 2: p1, sli1wyib (slip 1 stitch purlwise with yarn in back)
~I’m an iced tea drinker: rain, shine, or snow. Walking across the parking lot in 45 degree weather with iced tea in hand I admit, my hand was REALLY cold. Time to knit an iced tea cup cozy. While checking out Pinterest I saw the perfect cup cozy, Pretti-Cozy a free pattern on Ravelry designed by Mimie Wong. It’s a very quick knit and uses scrap yarn. Ok, Curls was visiting Wednesday, so I gave it to her. That’s her Iced-Americana-Decaf-With-Cream cup which is modeling the cozy. Time to whip up another one.
