I’m absolutely in love with our Boutique yarns, including Boutique Treasure. I love the feel of the yarns and the beautiful color changes. This week I’m knitting the Ripple on the Side Scarf. My best friend’s birthday is approaching and she loves knit scarves, so this is the perfect item to make. The picture shows color 1901 Mosaic, but I’m using 1923 Tapestry for my scarf because I think it matches the colors of her clothes better.

Independence Day will be here before we know it, so I’m getting a head start on decorating by crocheting this Statue of Liberty Pillow. I’m starting to make a pillow with a blue background, as shown in the picture, but I may also make one with a red background to have a matching set. The original color in Super Saver, 885 Delft Blue, doesn’t match my decor, so I’ll be using 886 Blue instead. For the red I’ll use 319 Cherry Red. I think they’ll look cute on my patio chairs.

I love reading but don’t have much space for books, so I love using my e-reader. To protect it from getting scratched as I carry it around, I’m starting to work on this Cabled E-Reader Cozy. I love working with With Love, and I need to practice doing cables. Yarn I love + technique to practice + practical need = perfect project for me!
