Well, the last few days have been very chilly here at Heavenly Wools, despite our rather disappointing lack of snow. I feel very grateful that we have such a snug house and a great pellet fire. Hopefully you will all be safe and warm at home, too.
In case you need to venture outdoors, I've posted patterns for two snug hats, the Anna-Maria hat and the Granny Square Beanie, which you can make quickly.
If you need yarn, it might take a bit longer! To help you cut the time a bit shorter, I've posted a new video - Navajo plying - on the site and on YouTube. Get out those old part bobbins of yarn and get plying!
The Granny Square Beanie uses Thick and Thin Felted yarn - a single ply yarn that's extra quick to spin and prepare for knitting or crochet.
Have fun with these new projects while I get back to dreaming up something new for the Spring!
