Two questions. Who doesn't have a skein of Cascade 220 in their stash? Who wouldn't want a copy of 60 Quick Knits in their knitting library?
With its low price and superior quality, Cascade 220 has long been one of the most popular yarns in the world. In fact, it currently ranks #1 on Ravelry.com. Affordability, quality worsted weight wool, excellent yardage and endless colors are just a few of the many reasons why Cascade 220 has such a devoted following.
60 Quick Knits is a delightful collection of hat, scarf and mitten patterns for everyone from beginners to seasoned knitters. The designs are what I would call "classically current" - you'll find fingerless mitts and fun hats, but nothing that is going out of style next week! Whether you're looking to knit something for yourself or for a gift, you'll find a design that fits - a monkey hat for your favorite little one, fair aisle mittens for your Mom or a mitered scarf for your best friend - they're all here. You will definitely not be lacking gift making inspiration! Some of my favorite patterns include... Scalloped-Edge Beanie, a tight fitting lacey feminine number; Cables & Wraps Scarf, with its ancient Egyptian motifs this is sure to get you a few "oohs" and "aahs;" Puppy Mittens, need I say more?; Textured Tam, a beautiful beret with cables and double moss stitch; Lion Scarf, a ferociously cute scarf that I can not wait to make! Whether you're knitting for yourself or gifts, 60 Quick Knits will surely keep your needles clicking. This is a must-add to the knitting library!
