Using Leftovers

If you have  a lot of leftover sock yarn that you hate to just throw away  you could make some very colorful socks.  These socks are made using leftover  Merino wool. They turned out pretty and are nice and warm.

Snow Country Hat

You need a warm hat  in snow country and this one, should do the job. It is hand knit with 2  strands of 4 ply yarn.It is nice and thick and closely knit to keep that cold air out. It seems like a lot of states need warm hats this winter!

How about that Snow?

  Here are 2 photos I took today. The first photo is of when the snow removal job was finished removing the snow off the roof of the Crystal Pinecone gift shop. The last photo is of  Rich and Alan  in the process of  removing all that snow.  It was at least 3 ft. deep at the deepest point. And besides all that is zero
degrees. Rich's beard was completely covered with white frost,  like  some guy from the Arctic!

Little Brown Shrug

Brown and other fall time colors were used to create this child's shrug. A different color buttons were used for closure. This pattern is available from the Ravelry website. It is made using circular needles, starting at the neck  edge and working down to start the raglan sleeve shaping. I knit  button holes and the buttons on my own, though. Worn over a long sleeve brown or orange long sleeved shirt, would look sweet!
