Need a last minute Valentine's gift?

Stop by Can Can Candy on Elmwood Ave (across from the co-op) and pick up one of my new recycled wool heart ornaments. $6 each or two for $10.

In season

I've been knitting for about 5 years now. And every time I start out to make something for myself, half way through I decided someone else should have it, or that its not quite right so I rip it out. At long last I made this little neck scarf just for me and me only!

It's made from my favorite yarn Suss Love, it's 100% tactel nylon which is the softest (though definitely not the least expensive!) stuff I've ever touched in my life. The color is "love red" - so its very seasonal of me! It's from a pattern that I believe originally was published in a Martha Stewart Living magazine, though I've seen it many other places. The pattern is available for free - here.

I don't think I'll be able to take this off for months!
