Craft in Style: Gifts Galore

I've been making an item for myself, and then duplicating it in different colors for gifts. This is a long hand warmer I made for myself. The knitting pattern is called Dashing which can be found on Ravelry, or on knitty. Then I created it in a creme superwash wool for my sister. My other sister requested a short one in green. I also made a short one for my friend for her birthday in yellow. As if this wasn't keeping me busy enough, I've made a few chunky scarves to give out as gifts. Category: Knitting » hey porkchop!

Daylight time in Winter is short. So short, that I waited at least 2 weeks before I could take pictures of my lovely Lace Legwarmers!

By Lisa Shobhana Mason On any given Saturday, you might find me strolling around a museum or gallery. I enjoy viewing artists’ unique interpretations of universal themes and elements, and I’m drawn to the repetition of various designs throughout the ages.

When I designed this blanket, I was thinking of the Bauhaus art movement with its stern and unadorned style. My aim was to create a piece that is sleek and clean, as well as moody and sumptuous.
