The Sweetie Pie Hat When I first designed the Sweetie Pie Hat four years ago, I had plenty of time on my hands to create patterns. With no one tugging at my sleeve while I knit, I had deep reserves of concentration and loads of patience. But now that I have a one and half year old, updating an old beloved pattern with new yarn and simpler instructions is about all I can handle!! The original Sweetie Pie Hat was striped, because back then, I had no reason to mind switching colors every eight rows (not to mention weaving in all those ends!).

Basics of the Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf The Artfully Simple Infinity Scarf pattern includes written instructions and a chart… and now there’s a video that gives a basic overview of how to get it started! Getting past the start of Row 2 was tripping a few people up (so if it gave you trouble, you’re not alone), but hopefully the following video will make it all clear! So as you can see, the spiral forms because you don’t slip stitch and chain to start each new row – they’re just made in continuous strips around and around in a circle. Mermaid Tail Blanket There's nothing quite like the warm embrace of the cold scaly skin of a mermaid tail to snuggle up to and keep you warm at night. The mermaid tail blanket is a crocheted blanket that makes it look like you're a beautiful mermaid princess when you stick your legs inside of it. The blanket is made like a big pocket for you to stick your legs into with a wide opening on the top of it and a cocoon type shape towards the bottom of it. Plus the blanket has a big mermaid fin on the bottom of it. Perfect for any little girl to snuggle up on the couch with and feel like a mermaid princess, or any adult male that is just a little too into The Little Mermaid, the mermaid tail blanket is sure to keep your legs nice and toasty through the harsh cold of the winter. Update: The linked mermaid tail blanket doesn't seem to be active anymore.

Card-Blanc by Kathy Martin: Crochet Day Over the weekend I finished my latest crochet project....this colorful sampler scarf. It started out to be a blanket, but I decided to make it into a scarf because I thought it was too fun and colorful not to! I almost can't wait until winter to wear it! ;) I think I'll still make a blanket a little later. Aren't these colors and stitches fun?
