First Grade "Modern Art Quilt"

Today I finished a work of love that will be auctioned off at this year's school fundraiser.  Each first grader created a "modern art" square in their art class with the same instructions.  Each square came out so unique and beautiful!  

Backed with Liberty "Pepper" fabric and bound with a small scale stripe . . . I'm in love.  I may just have to bid on it.

Chunky Mitten Pattern

I made these mittens in Galler Yarn's Asana Bulky for my son's kindergarten teacher. They came out so quickly and easily I decided to write up the pattern. I was lucky to get my cousin to come over and snap some photos for me.  I think they turned out so beautifully festive! Check out his Etsy shop where he sells furniture and artwork. 

Now I'm a bit addicted to this pattern as I will make them for anyone whom I can touch with a ten foot pole. I've made 3 pairs today.  I may need an intervention soon.  But in all honesty, it's just one of those patterns that is deeply satisfying to me.  Super quick, super easy, no fuss, no muss, perfect result every time.

This pattern is 50% off in my ravelry shop through 12/21/2015 with coupon code: CHUNKSTER. Who's still on your list?

Enjoy! <3 <3 <3

Local Yarn Shop Love: Looped Yarn Works, Washington D.C.

Sumptuous yarn, beautiful people, inviting spaces, friendly smiles - you'll find it all at Looped Yarn Works.  

While I was in D.C. this past week, I found myself wandering around near the hotel and like there was some sort of magnetic attraction I wound up in front of the only yarn shop in all of D.C.  It's a gift, it's a curse; beautiful yarn always finds its way into my home and my heart, even when I'm 3,000 miles away :-)

I ended up picking out a merino wool yarn called Clara by Manos del Uruguay in the colorway Frost. The yardage is great and I'm looking forward to designing something special with it.  If you are in town, make sure to stop by, you're sure to find something special.  <3 <3 <3
