On The Needles

In the spirit of Nicole's KKCO (Keep Calm Craft On) blog series, I am sharing what's currently on my needles.

I teach a handful of classes at my wonderful local yarn shop each season.  Next up on my schedule are the adorable and super simple, Give a Hoot mittens.  With just a couple of easy cables and a few buttons, the mittens come to life as amazing little owls.  Brilliant!  This pair is a sample for the class I will be teaching.  I thought the orange would be fun with little turquoise buttons.  The yarn is Cascade's Superwash 220.  It's such a great, workhorse yarn.


I knit a pair as a gift for a dear friend's birthday last year and she loved them.

I am totally smitten with the Owls and Owlet sweaters by the amazingly talented Scottish designer,  Kate Davies too.  But, holy buckets!  That's a whole lot of buttons to sew on!  Not sure I am feeling that just yet.


  1. I have had that pattern in my queue and now you maybe the push I needed to knit it :)

    1. Can't wait to see them, Nicole. They are super fun and surprisingly fast to knit!
