What do you do when you are in the house because of a blizzard?  Why you knit, of course!!!!!!  While Long Island was blanketed in snow, my meatballs and sauce were simmering on the stove, I decided that this was the time to knit one of those ruffled scarves that everyone is wearing.  I had bought the yarn a few weeks back waiting for the perfect time to try out this technique.

I googled the directions and found a very simple youtube video.  After watching it and studying the steps a couple of times I was ready to have a go at it.  Here is my finished product.  Only a couple of hours time, a good movie and a glass(or two) of wine and I am ready to wear it.  Will get some more skeins in other colors to make as gifts!!!!

I whipped up these cute little wrist warmers in a few hours.  I am not a glove wearer, maybe it is because I have long nails, but these will definitely be better than not wearing anything on my hands in the cold weather.  I am even going to make a pair to send to my daughter in London!!!!!

If anyone needs the pattern just let me know.  If you can make a scarf, these will be a snap!!!!!!

Here is a pair of easy and quick crocheted slippers for girls.  I whipped them up in less than one hour.  Just as easy are slippers for women.  I embellished these with crocheted flowers, but buttons or any other embellishments would look great.  If anyone is interested in the pattern I use, just contact me and I will post it.
