Friday Finds

Happy Friday! We’re staring down a cold and snowy weekend in Colorado, so basically, my plan is to stay inside as much as possible and knit away! Probably on the couch with a movie queue piled next to the blu-ray player. What are your favorite “homebody weekend” movies?

  • Slipping Ridge (free) by Kathryn C. features a slipped stitch pattern that I think would be really great for highly variegated socks. Plus, they look pretty awesome in this solid color as well!

  • You all know I have a mitten problem, but how cute are these Fox in the Snow Mittens (free) from Patons? SO CUTE. I really want a pair.

  • Bonnie Sennot’s Biscuit infinity scarf ($5) features a simple textured stitch and lace edging.

  • Woodstove Season ($6.50) by Alicia Plummer is a classic cardigan shape with simply textured fronts and a chevron texture on the back.

  • The classic Granny Square blanket gets a simple yet contemporary upgrade in Purl Bee’s Granny Stripe Blanket (free). I’ve frequently said I wanted to crochet a yarn-scraps blanket, and I think this stripe version will definitely be a contender. (Let’s face it, I probably have enough yarn scraps to do a traditional Granny Square afghan AND a Granny Stripe blanket, because I’m ridiculous.)

  • The Birthday Shawl (£3.50) from Kate’s Twirl is a lovely little shawl with a garter stitch body and sawtooth-inspired edging.

One thought on “Friday Finds

  1. The weather has been very snowy here in my area as well. I’ve actually taken the day off, as I didn’t feel like braving the snow and the storms to head into work.

    I’m catchup on the podcasts, TV, and the internet. 🙂 My favourite “stay at home” films are Wilby Wonderful and waydowntown. Cabinet of Dr. Caligari too if I’m in the mood for something darker.

    The stripe blanket is very classy and modern.
