Holiday Tradition 2012

You may recall that last year we had our curmudgeonly pal Spud on a holiday tag or ornament.

Our gal Chloë pulling Spud for sledding fun.

In the spirit of tradition, we bring you the 2012 holiday tag. Click here to download.

A multifaceted ornament.

Auntie Sarah took several tags to create this whimsical ornament. How will you use the 2012 holiday tag? I’m trying to come up with a project to combine both 2011 and 2012!

Happy holidays from the gang at Spud & Chloë!

We Think You’re Swell

CHLOE:  Spud, that’s not how you wear it!

SPUD:  What is “it”?

CHLOE:  a Cowl

SPUD:  a Howl?

CHLOE:  a C-O-W-L. Like a scarf only knit in a loop.

SPUD:  Cowl – Shmowl…ZZZZZ

Well, Spud & Chloë Pals, do we have a treat for you. The Swell Cowl, a pattern by Melissa LaBarre is worked in three hanks of Spud & Chloë Outer. The sample shown uses Wave (7217) and is a nice bright pop of color in February.

A quick and speedy knit, just in time for the end of winter.

It’s always nice to have a new, cuddly knit right at the end of dreary winter.

You can download the free Swell Cowl, right here

Wave 7217 is such a beautiful blue.

Melissa is a talented designer that the whole gang admires a great deal. In fact, we think she’s really interesting and have a lot more Melissa fun in store for you soon! I have this cowl on the needles in Sequoia (7205). I felt a tug to do a red project in February, I’ll have pictures soon. The stitch pattern is fun and easy to memorize. The Swell Cowl is a nice project to come home to after a day at work. Just me, the squishy, soft Spud & Chloë Outer on my needles and a movie. To be perfectly honest, a cup of tea and a cat in my lap too. Life is good.

Have a Swell day my Spud & Chloë Pals.

And don’t forget to download your copy of the Swell Cowl.

Super Soakers – Free Pattern!


CHLOË: Wow Auntie Sarah! These Baby Pants are adorable! How did you think of such a clever idea?

AUNTIE SARAH Well Chloë, sometimes you just want to cover a diaper up. I like to make everything cute. I’d love to see all the fun ways people customize the Baby Pants: stripes, ruffles, bright colors. Babies are so much fun to design for!”

This is simple, straightforward knitting.

Next, you simply fold the pants and make three short seams.

And then your little person is rip-raring and ready to go.

I think this free pattern is perfect for babies on the go!
