Knitting fun & fast!

Hi All,

I wanted to start a blog on knitting quick projects. I'm always on the go or multitasking at home. So, what I like to knit the most are quick projects. Now don't get me wrong, I do knit the occasional sweater, but I like fast fun projects... hats, scarves, ponchos, bags. I also felt alot of my projects.

I'm always looking for hip, funky patterns that are fun and fast.

Share your cool knitting accesories too!
