My Favorite Things - October

As you know we are getting close to Christmas! With the Canadian Thanksgiving just finishing a lot of us crafters are starting our final stretch!

Or if you are like me, you've been procrastinating working on the same project for the last few months!

I haven't finished my gift list yet so I have spent some time on Pinterest getting ideas!!

Here are the ones that I found that I love!


Echoes from Karelia sock pattern is a tribute to my mother’s North Karelian heritage. All the stranded patterns used are 4-stitch repeats, which makes the design easy even for less experienced knitters: there are no long yarn floats to tie and the total stitch count can be easily adjusted by 4-stitch intervals.:

LOVE these socks! Love the details and the colors! I'd never wear shoes to show these babies off!

I like the lines on this cowl and the way it drapes! Crochet this up in a soft and silky baby alpaca yarn and you'll be toasty warm ALL winter!!!

I thought these were such a neat idea! I can't wait to make some for camping this year!

If you have a kiddo like I do, this sort of thing is right up their ally! I have added this to my list of things to make my daughter! She would love hiding out in it!


I hope you enjoyed my list! I am really looking forward to trying out some of the patterns!!

Keep Stitching!
