Merino Knit Cardi

I finally finished up the cardi I started last year! :D


Arusha Jacket Free Pattern: http://www.naturallycaron.com/projects/arusha/arusha_1.html


This is a jacket with a very comfortable ease.  If you want a snug jacket, I recommend going down on the size.  Using instruction for Small made a snug Medium, which is perfect for my younger sister!  I think it would look cute with the front open, tunic underneath it, a skirt, and boots! :)

The yarn I used is Mission Falls 1824 Wool in color Raisin.  This yarn has been discontinued, and it was a great deal for a cuddly soft superwash merino wool!  I love a good discount! :D

Yarn Snowflakes

I wanted big snowflakes so I used sport weight acrylic yarn :)



These are all free patterns! :) :

Please Support Children with Your Snowflakes

You all probably know what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT on Friday, December 14.
I want to support the children.  One way I can do is to send them crochet snowflakes. Would you like to join me?  http://www.pta.org/parents/content.cfm?ItemNumber=3459

There are many free crochet snowflake patterns on Ravelry!  :)

Please make and send snowflakes by January 12, 2013 to the Connecticut PTSA:
