Cozy Knits

Knits are just cozy - there's no other way to describe yarn woven into perfection.  Who doesn't love it?  

My love for yarn + diy manifests itself in crocheted creations.  It's a vicious cycle, I must admit. 

You see...around this time of year I get the itch to pick up my crochet needles again.  And every year I get a little more gutsy, trying my hand at something more difficult than the year previous {last year it was oversized cowls and coffee cup cozies, this year I'm thinking headbands and boot socks}.  

But it doesn't stop there - once I conquer my challenge, I usually think..."hmm, this would make a fabulous Christmas gift," or the unavoidable {if you're me}, "I could sell these!"  The latter thought launches me into a crocheting frenzy, every spare moment, leading up to Christmas, spent crocheting till my little fingers are numb and my eyes are crossed, and with the last stitch I swear off crocheting "forever."  {aka - next year}

Needless to say - I'm feeling the itch again.  Once I have a free moment, you can bet I'll be headed to my local yarn shop to swoon over my next knit project.  

Until then, check out these handmade beauties...{any of these would make perfect Christmas gifts for those who like to shop early!}

While I just adore all of the above, I have to say #2 is one of my absolute favorites!  {And she's offering a 50% discount on anything in her store if you like her on the #2 link to learn more.}  Maybe I'll attempt a bow scarf this year as well - why not?? 

Are you loving knits this season??



  1. Ooh I love a good cosy knit! I've never tried crocheting but it's now on my list of things to do over my Christmas holiday. Totally inspired! thanks :) xxx

  2. I have the same problem every year, but then I can't seem to finish what I've started! This year will be different. I want to try my hand at a cowl. Do you have any tips, ticks, or patterns you could suggest to me?

    Love all your knit picks by the way :)

    1. Brittany - my favorite cowl pattern can be found here:

      I've never made the hat, but I've made several of the cowls for gifts and one for myself. Be warned - this takes a really long time to make, but it's so worth it! It's absolutely beautiful when finished - I get so many compliments on mine. I even ordered the wood buttons from etsy. Let me know if you decide to give it a try. I would love to see your finished product! :) -d

  3. these are so cozy looking. I'm really loving the knitted boot sock look. great finds!

  4. Oh man, I am always loving knits! My grandma used to knit us sweaters and socks every winter and I never really appreciated it fully (until now). Such a special talent! xoxo

  5. Oh gosh, I want all of these! So perfect for the chilly holiday season!
    xo TJ

  6. I knit but I've never gone further than a scarf. I really need to try some other things. I love some of the headbands, etc!

    I nominated you for an award, it's on my blog today! :)
