Scrap Yarn

Getting rid of more scrap yarn...And I found the cutest pattern EVAR at ATERG Crochet's Etsy shop!  Who doesn't need a wee owl to keep company with??  ;)

Crochet pattern owl 'big brother' by ATERGcrochet

Lowland Originals has a quick and easy shawl/wrap pattern to use up some of that leftover sock yarn you have lurking about...It's here.  You could totally make this out of worsted scraps as well, for when it's really chilly out.


I love how she's encorporated buttons into this little decoration.  Perfect for a kid's room, or your art room!

Knit Like A Man

This photo is from Life Magazine (obviously), but unfortunately I have no context for it.  It's an amazing image nonetheless.

My Googlefu is weak tonight, but a search for background info led me to this interesting history of knitting during WW2.
