Hi everyone! Sorry I missed a post yesterday, I was sick in bed all day, but feeling a little better today! I hope you all are having a stress-free and enjoyable holiday season!
Today I just have a quick post for you, I hope this helps some of you out there when laundering your knitwear. All those symbols are on yarn labels and garment tags to help us know how to take care of our laundry, but I don't know what half of them mean! Print this out and tack it up in your laundry room, it might come in handy!
It's time to get those gifts wrapped and under the tree! I have another freebie for you today - but this one is different! Print out these gift tags and use them to address your gifts, insuring that the recipient know that the gift inside was handmade just for them!

Today is December 20th, 5 days until Christmas! Today I've got an idea for what to make for your favorite barista, your mail person, your kid's teachers, or to stuff stockings with - Coffee Cup Cozies! Cup cozies are quick to make, fun to play around with, and take a minimal amount of yarn - great for leftovers!
Today is another new video tutorial! Today I'm going to teach you a new way to weave in your ends, using duplicate stitch!
It's Free Pattern Friday! As we get closer and closer to December 25th, gift knitting needs to be quicker and quicker! Today I have a fast and stylish beanie that you can make in an hour or two!

This beanie uses 1 ball of Plymouth Encore Mega, and size 15 needles. These big chunky hats with big pompoms on top are really popular right now, I'm sure every teenager on your gift list would love one! Not only is this pattern quick to knit, it's also economical - 1 ball of Encore Mega is $6.50, so make one for your whole family!
