Chatoyant Knit Vest

Share

This beautiful vest really has a designer flair to it.  Nothing boring, or ordinary about it.  But the beauty is that it’s still an easy pattern to knit.  So you get to work on a project that you can whip-up as a gift, or use as an on the go project.  I love the color of the yarn used in this photo.  A pretty purple yarn is a great way to add a splash of color to your outfit, and it’s the perfect choice for an Easter or spring knitting project.

2013 Calendar for Knitters

Share

Knitting-calendar

If you’re looking for a new calendar for 2013 and you’re also a knitter, then why not get something that mixes these two together?  The Knitting 2013 Calendar comes chalk full with 101 great projects to tackle throughout the year.  I picked-up a 2012 calendar last year and I really enjoyed seeing all of the fun projects that I could make throughout the year.

What I like about a knitting calendar is that it inspires me to knit every day.  Wake up every day to see a new knitting idea.  When knitting is on your mind, then you’re more likely to make time for it.  So you won’t end the day wishing that you had picked up your knitting needles.

The other thing that I enjoy about this calendar is that it offers a variety of knitting projects, many of which are great knitting gift ideas. Break away from scarves and socks to see what else interests you.

Happy 2013 and Happy Knitting!
