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 πŸ™‚

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!

      My favorite travel cup isn’t insulated and gets so hot…so nice to have it wrapped in some fun yarn! So many people comment on it when I’m at the coffee shop at work πŸ™‚
