Twisted Diamond Earwarmer

The Twisted Diamond Earwarmer pattern was inspired by the Barfi Stitch . The design has clean lines that draw the eye. It is visually interesting without being too ornamental. The selvedge stitch combined with the ribbing makes a beautiful edge. The diamond pattern down the center is gorgeous. This pattern would be great for men or women!

I must admit, this pattern took me HOURS to figure out. I started and restarted it so many times I can't even tell you. It was difficult because I was going off of a video that repeated the pattern instead of having it just once. I mostly had to just look at it and figure out the pattern. I must say excel spreadsheets were also super helpful. They were the grid I needed and not mention coloring in the cells. Even when I thought I had finally figured out the pattern, it still wasn't quite right. Shoutout to excel for allowing me to make easy adjustments to the pattern so I could get it right.

This pattern was so worth the pain, though. It's a simple design yet it's also eye-catching. In a neutral color, it goes with everything. It's great for men or women.

This pattern is also great to use up some of that left-over project yarn. You need a little bit more than scraps but definitely not a full skein. Even less than a half skein of yarn would be enough.

Materials Needed:
(2) Knitting Needles Size US 9/ 5.5mm
Red Heart Yarn Classic or any comparable worsted weight yarn
Darning Needle
Interlocking Stitch Markers (or paper clips)

Dog Hat

A few weeks ago, a good friend approached me about my knitting a hat for her dog. She sent me a picture that she saw on social media of a Corgi looking adorable in a hat, and decided her dog, Walter, needed one as well. What I didn't tell her was that the picture she sent me was of a crocheted hat. Unfortunately, I do not know how to crochet, and, at this point, I don't think I'll ever learn (but who knows, I'm still young). I make this point because, in my opinion, crocheting is great for freeform-type projects like dog hats. Again, I am unfamiliar with crocheting, so I could be way off base here.  Knitting  a hat for a dog was going to be a challenge, and I knew that from the very beginning. I spent weeks (okay with many days off in between) studying the picture my friend sent me trying to figure out just how I was going to construct this thing. Just when I thought I had cracked it, I noticed another part of the hat that I hadn't considered. I compiled quite a lon

Mermaid Soap Saver Bag

* When shopping using some of the links provided below, I may benefit from it. I am not paid to advertise these products, I just truly believe in them and the company.  I've recentlly decided to #giveupthebottle and start using bars of soap instead of liquid soap in plastic bottles! When I started researching shampoo, conditioner, and soap bars, one thing became clear - a soap saver bag was necessary to extend the life of my bars. I thought to myself, why buy one when I can just make one? Plastic production has nearly doubled in the last 50 years. Did you know that 18 million pounds of plastic ends up in the ocean every year? Research predicts that there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050. Only 9% of plastic is recycled. Product packaging accounts for about 40% of plastic usage. This plastic never goes away because it is not biodegradable. It may break down into smaller pieces called microplastics, which human and sea creatures then injest. Humans consume an averag

Trio of Wall Hangings

Since moving into my new place, I have been trying to find something to hang over my bed. I looked at a lot of artwork online, but didn't see anything I liked in the very specific colors that I wanted. So what do I do when I can't buy something I want? I make it! Specifically, I knit it, of course. I actually looked into doing something macrame before deciding on knitting. The biggest deciding factor for these wall hangings was the fact that I already had the dowel rods. This made deciding the yarn weight pretty easy. I had to use yarn that would look decent on 4.5mm needles because my dowel rods were about 4mm thick. Narrowing down the yarn weight helped a lot, but there were still many yarn possibilities. I was looking for very specific colors. I spent a lot of time looking at yarn online but was too nervous to buy it in case the color was off. I deciding to check out the yarn store around the corner from where I work, so I could look at the yarn colors in person. Would you b
