Lena's Favorite Projects

Textured stitch patterns -- Some stitches just make you smile when you knit them, and it's even better when you get that instant gratification in just a row or two. The super-fun stitch in the Berry Scrubbies knit pattern is exactly like that for me. The stitch gives the ultimate texture, which is perfect for dishcloths or washcloths. The best part is that you can make one and use it in the same day!

Super-quick projects -- Sometimes you just need a quick fix. It's kind of like needing a cup of coffee in the morning; you need to crochet or knit a bit to get you moving. I really like projects like the Mug Rugs knit pattern. These are incredibly fast to knit, and you just know they will make a perfect gift to warm up anyone's morning cup.

Crochet motifs -- To me, crochet motifs just never get old. They are super-fast and just seem to fly off my hook. The motifs in the Bon Appetit crochet pattern are no exception. This set includes a place mat, napkin and napkin ring. The napkin rings use a bit of scrap yarn, and I love using cloth napkins at meals. I now have table settings ready for any occasion!

Baby projects -- I love babies! Every baby project I make always ends up with me smiling. My Sweet Heart Set crochet pattern, which includes a hat, diaper cover and blanket, is one of my favorite baby projects. We all know that hearts represents love, so to be able to sprinkle hearts and love all over a baby project is just the perfect idea to me. The little hearts are so much fun to make as you go, and once you know how, it's so easy to add a heart here and there when you want to share your love.
