Fun fur scarves

I did these a couple of weeks ago to get rid of my fun fur yarn. Wouldn't you know my mother went out and got me more.


This is what I worked on this past weekend.


This is what I am working on right now.

My grandson wants the white one and his friend wants the one I am doing right now.

This is the bad thing about knitting Christmas presents in front of them, they want the hats now. My middle grandson will get the one with the gold band.

Will need to do mittens and gloves to match.

Harry Potter Sweater

So my nephew wanted a Harry sweater . This pattern comes from the book "Charmed Knits " by Alison Hansel. The yarn is Lionbrand's Vanna's Choice.

I am not sure how this yarn will hold up as it is the first time I have used it. It's a thicker worstered weight than I like for a sweater. I like woolease much better. Holds up great for kid knits. I hope to get it finished before halloween.

Round Blanket

I made this blanket out of Lionbrand Homespun.
This is not my favorite yarn to crochet with, but it is so soft. My needle kept getting caught in the fibers. The picture is alittle dark. The yarn was leftover from sweaters I have knitted . The sweaters are so warm ,but the yarn tends to pill a bit.

This is the pattern I used.

Mittens & Scarf

I finished my mittens and still had enough left over yarn to do a scarf.
