Wine Bottle Cozy

This is pattern is free on Ravelry from Tara's Knits. I knitted it on 3  US 8 double points with worsted weight yarn I had in my stash.  It is knitted in the round, so no seaming. You start with a rib pattern and then basically knit for 12 1/2 inches then decrease to form the bottom.

Chutes & Ladders Scarf

This is the Chutes & Ladders Scarf from I knitted this with size US 11 needles and Lion Brand Wool ease Chunk in the Nantucket colorway. The yarn is real soft and squishy, it will definitely keep someone warm. It was a simple pattern to knit and I loved doing the cables. This scarf will be given to the Knit Wits at the Novato United Methodist Church.

33 Cup Cosy and Tea Toter

 This is my first attempt at knitting a cup cosy. I recently have started to watch many knitting podcasts on You Tube. One of the podcasts I am watching is the Little Bobbins, where I participated in a cup cosy swap. I was paired up with someone in Australia. I knitted this cosy with some stash yarn called Phentex "Chunky". It is bulky yarn good for cabling. I really had fun making this and now I want to make more cup cosys.

 I also had fun knitting this Tea Toter. I used worsted weight yarn called, I Love This Yarn. I really love this yarn, it made a lovely pattern as I knitted. I would like to make more of these, too.
