Go on Ravelry and type in Alice’s Embrace. There are several that are easy and pretty.
I have used both. The thick & quick has more body. The hometown is softer.
I make a very simple neck warmer . Cast on 30 stitches using worsted and size 10 needles. Work in garter stitch for 14 inches. Bind off and seam.
I hold two strands together (random colors) and make children's mittens.
I hold two strands together...just two random colors...and make children's mittens. Every pair is different.
UMCOR is the very best. Absolutely every penny donated goes to the people who need it. None of it goes to administrative costs.
If you use a toddler size pattern for a sock using worsted weight yarn, it makes a perfect size for an ornament. You start out with 24 stitches so it goes fast. You could put a note in each stocking.
I make my dishcloths with dark yarn...black, navy, brown. They fade some but I never have stains.
Years ago a friend at church was in a cast. Someone made her a two needle sock using a Mary Maxim Christmas stocking pattern. It could easily be done without the design. It worked perfectly.
I'm doing a couple market bags.
Baby bibs made with cotton yarn are quick. Lots of patterns on Ravelry.
Viburnum Korean spice bush. I have a row of them in my front yard and a row in the back. They smell heavenly...I think.
I have also used the Burrow for hats and the Everest for Infinity scarves. Both were great to knit with. The Everest has been through the washer and dryer with no problem
I have used their Quest yarn for socks. It is very soft and silky and easy to use.
