Small Projects

After the rush of the holidays, I wanted small, easy, quick projects.

I made myself some simple garter stitch fingerless mitts using Woolspun from my stash.

I cast on 30 stitches and finished these while watching tv the night before a snow storm.



Then I saw Yarnutopia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens blog post and decided this would be a fun project.

I was right!

Quick, easy-such a cute finished project.

Also using Lion Brand Woolspun from my stash, I finished these in record time.

When off the hand they look very narrow, however they fit quite well.

These I will be adding to my box for Hooking for the Homeless.

Next up, coffee cozies.


After I posted this picture and one of a finished cozy, several friends asked for a coffee cozy.

I have a few more to make 🙂

Top right-garter stitch in Lion Brand BonBons

Bottom left-garter stitch in Big Twist Serenity

Bottom Right-box stitch in Big Twist Serenity.

I am currently casting on one in seed stitch using Fibranatura Inca – Inca Yellow.

These were nice, mindless, watch tv projects.

Have a good week!

    I love your pictures. And your fun projects. And I love that Woolspun yarn. It’s so squishy soft. I wouldn’t have thought to make something like mittens with it, but those look great. Being familiar with this yarn I can totally see how they would stretch. I love the idea of all those cozies being different stitch patterns. Again, what a fun project!
