I have a habit of going to the craft store for 1 item and leaving with a bagful! This time i found some bead garland to add the finishing touches to these festive Christmas yarn wreaths. (I was at the store to RETURN, not buy something lol). Needless to say i ended up with the beads and more and full of more creative wreath ideas. What’s your favorite thing to decorate a wreath with?
Ps… These wreaths will soon be available in the Stitches of Light store.
This beautiful yarn wreath is newly listed!

Well here they are! My first knitted projects completed on the Knifty Knitter small round loom. Instead of trying the hat pattern that came with the loom, I decided to try these cute dish scrubbies. I found the pattern here: http://www.rostitchery.com/2005/11/knifty_kitchen_.html
I used acrylic yarn as that is what I had with me on our weekend trip. The purple scrubbie on the left I tried using three strands of yarn. I love the sturdiness of it. The turquoise one I did two strands and like how it feels in my hand. So I’m not sure which way I like better. I will probably make some of each. I’m excited that they turned out and I am looking forward to finding another project for my round looms.
After my struggle to learn to crochet, I really have not felt compelled to try to learn to knit. Until now! While ordering some stuff for one of my children online, I a came across a set of these round knifty knitters round looms in clearance. And they have arrived. And I am excited! So in a little bit I am going to try them out and see what happens. Have you tried these before? Do you love them? What are your favorite patterns?
I’m so excited to share that I am finally getting my store up and running on Square Market! I will most likely be migrating away from Etsy over the next few months. Now I will be able to showcase all of my itmes! I currently have about 14 items on the site, and will be adding more as time allows, along with editing and better pictures. Please check it out and leave me your feedback. Stitches of Light Store
