It must be the time of year, 'cause I've been wanting to make scarves and I desire something different than the usual garter stitch pattern. I found this yarn at Walmart and decided to make a zig zag scarf from this free pattern on the web. It's a pattern for beginners, so I wasn't intimidated. It will need to be blocked because the edges tend to curl up, but I think it's going to turn out pretty cute.
I'm also gearing up for Christmas gift making mode. There are so many cute things to make. I'm compiling a list of websites that have free patterns of stuffed animals, clothing and knitting ideas that I'll share with all of you so you can get started too!
