The big , chunky scarf is one of the most trendy items this winter… probably only second to the knee high boots!

so #3 is the QUICK knitted Infinity Scarf. This scarf knits up in a couple days time and is a seamless, warm beauty!

I made one over the weekend and started a second to give as a hostess gift for a holiday party I am attending this week. The first one I made exactly to pattern and the second one I only changed the weight of the yarn to super bulky (instead of chunky/bulky) – mostly because I wasn’t happy with the color choices of the correct yarn weight.

The needles and # of stitches remained the same. Click on the last scarf photo for the pattern and link!

and finally one that I have used over and over… fingerless arm warmers!

no knitting involved and won’t cost a whole lot to make!

I first saw this on a blog that I fell in total love with.. but I can’t seem to find it. When I do I will definitely link it here… because this blog had so many cool repurposed ideas and I need to find it again!

but for now here’s the jist:

You take a pair of knee or thigh high socks (Target sells each pair for about $2.50) and cut off the footie part. Then in the top area (where it would go to your knee) make a small slit (thumb hole) and stitch around it so it doesn’t pull.

Easy as pie and ohhhhh soooo cool! The first photo is a link to a store that sells these and the second is a tutorial if you want to make your own! The second doesn’t sew the thumbhole… but I think it’s worth the extra effort 😉
