Check out what I knitted for this little cutie... without a pattern. 🙂



I’ve been waiting for something like this to happen like this for years!

Quamut has all knitting patterns free for us to print!

And that bead scarf pattern they have is so pretty…. I’ll have to remind myself to get some more printing paper at the store….

Here, kitting lovers: enjoy. Quamut free knitting projects.

Did I mention that it only lasts until the end of February? It’s like at midnight Cinderella will turn back into a servant. Meh.

And if you don’t knit, check it out anyway. You might send it to someone you know who loves knitting, or just start learning yourself… you never know what might come out of it.
