The finest fixer upper!

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I’ve heard about yarn being used for various things other then knitting or crocheting.  For things like hair on a doll, as a piece of string to hold a little porch tree straight, arts and crafts and even a hair accessory.  When I received this link the other day it totally blew me away.  It showed me a whole new use for yarn,  something I would have never dreamed of ……  A pothole filler!!  Yes that is correct a pothole filler.  What a terrific and funky idea!   Just think of how great, some of our cities could look with pretty yarn, used to fill in the cracks that nature leaves us with.   No patterns needed just some yarn and a little time.   :)  What an interesting way to reduce, reuse and recycle.

With Earth Day right around the corner it is time for us to remember that every little bit helps.   As I was searching the internet for Earth Day activities in my local area, I came across a cute poem I wanted to share:

Everyday is Earth Day, If it’s cold or wet or hot pitch in to save the planet it’s the only one we’ve got.

Snuggle Knit Bunny

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Spring has sprung here at Plymouth Yarn.  With the Easter season upon us we are reminded of warmer weather soon to come.  This is the time of year when the birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and the sun is shinning.  So I was thinking what another great idea for Easter.  An adorable hand knit bunny.  This pattern is made using the Dreamin yarn.  How much fun would it be to give your little ones a hand knit basket made from Galway and this snuggle bunny from Dreamin.  Contact your local yarn shop to purchase pattern 1795.

Baby’s Boutique Cardigan

Thursday, February 24th, 2011

Baby Boutique is the perfect baby yarn for Kathy’s cardigan–

Knit in size 1-2 years in Baby Boutique

Love the football buttons!

Knit in size 1-2 years in Baby Boutique, it took 6 balls of blue, and 1 each of white and brown.

The traditional cable pattern makes this a great staple garment for any child. I like how the hoods’ cable detail adds a sporty finish.

Baby Alpaca DK never looked so pastoral in DivineGift’s leafy scarf-

4 balls of Baby Alpaca Dk in color 402

The pattern repeat was doubled to create a wider scarf. The alpaca drapes well when knit on size 7 needles in lace stitch.

Brooke Nelson’s design has a matching hat and fingerless mitts as well.
