Favorites of 2015: a yarn lover’s pick of the year


After receiving a sizeable stash of sock yarn for my birthday this year (best birthday EVER!), I’ve been eyeing all the projects in Sock-Yarn Accessories.

First project on my list: the Rockport Fingerless Gloves.

Rockport Fingerless Gloves

They’re light and lacy and look good with just about any outfit. They’re like knitted jewelry—pretty bracelets that keep you warm!

Once the weather gets colder, I’ll have to whip up a pair of Run Around Mittens. These mittens are super-cute and not at all bulky, so they’re perfect for a quick snowball fight (yes, we really do get the occasional dusting of snow in Seattle!).

  • I love hats and scarves. So soft yarn.

  • I mainly crochet (I can’t knit to save my life) hats and scarves but am going to tackle mitts and maybe gloves.

  • I make mostly scarves and some afghans. I’m thinking of joining the knit shop in our city to learn to do more.

  • Having lived in Seattle and the surrounding area, you get MORE than a dusting of snow. It can be downright heavy, and when those times happen, Seattle SLITHERS to a halt! Trust me, I’ve seen it. Best place to be is home with the knitting needles, crochet hook, or sewing machine — making something indulgent. And hope the power doesn’t go out.

  • I am the one that does HATS! . Hats for the soldiers! Hats for Newborns in Need! Hats for just about anyone who asks.
