The Really Useful Central Decrease

Here’s a video I just shot showing you a really neat way to work a central decrease. I’ve used this technique before in my Hottie Cover to decrease 8 stitch (4 over 4) cables, and in this video I’m using it in ribbing. It’ll work anywhere, you can decrease as many stitches as you like, and it’s really easy to remember. I certainly didn’t come up with it, but I love it nonetheless! :) You’ll also get a sneak-peak at my new pattern, which I should have ready really soon. Let me know what you think & if you have any other knitting problems, you can ask them over on Tumblr, or here.

“I believe in pink.” – Audrey Hepburn

Pink is powerful. It can make anything cosy in an instant, without being aggressive or overwhelming like red. Pinks don’t clash, which is lucky for me, because at the moment, everything I make or buy has to be pink! I worked up this pink version of my hot water bottle cover pattern the other day. It only took me a day and a bit, so I’m considering making one for each of my girl friends, for Valentine’s Day. I wonder whether I should modify the hottie pattern into a muff so that I can wear it out and about? I had a muff when I was little that had strings to go around your neck. And I’m always losing gloves! What do you think? :)

Here’s the link to the Ravelry Project Page.

Also, I loved this video by Michelle Phan about different ways to wear a scarf. I usually do a loop or a wrap-wrap, but I’m really excited to try out the knots she shows.
