closer to finished

The last ear warmer finished. Yeah!

This pattern is called Ear Warmer by Kate Morgan. The pattern is well written. I didn't have to do any frogging or fiddling with the pattern to make it work. Cool! I did add two extra rows to make the ear warmer 4 inches wide. I used US #7 needles as called for in the pattern and a German Twisted Cast-on of 80 stitches. The yarn was Red Heart Heathers in Teal. The yarn is another of my one dollar Michael's clearance finds. I used Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind-Off. I found a video of Cat Bordhi demonstrating the bind-off. I do believe it will become my go-to bind-off. I will be saving the basic bind-off for places I want a firmer/less stretchy bind-off like shoulders.

Now to finish up the rest of the Christmas presents! Two quilts and a knitted afghan are left. One quilt and the afghan are about 3/4 done. But I don't realistically believe I will finish all of it before Christmas as the house is knee deep and we are out of clean clothes.

Have a good day!



  1. Judy, I love the idea of ear warmers. Such a quick and cute gift! And there's nothing better than warm ears. :)

  2. I think so too! I didn't even know they were popular again until Miss T wanted to know if I would make her one.

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!
