Obsessed with cowl neck scarves...

So Pretty! Saw this soft,  heavenly cowl recently on The Purl Bee and just fell in love.  The site offers so many really unique knitting ideas. Perfect with leggings and a sweater.

Love these knitting needles...

I just recently started teaching knitting classes at a local boutique and it's been amazing! Classes include instruction, appetizers and wine so how fun is that! I've been stressing that knitting is all about the creating....use materials you love and you'll love your finished project. There are amazing yarns and needles out there that add totally luxury to even a beginner project. My new obsession....knitting needles by Knitters Pride. Metal needles can be cold to work with in the winter months so these wooden needles are the coziest around and the colors are fabulous! Love them!
