Cozy Spirit CAL Part 2 makes your scarf twice as long, now that’s cozy! I love the color play in this scarf, with the mirror image and the varying length stripes, it stays interesting. You may think we’re done here, but there’s more. Part 3 will add on a way to keep you even more warm and cozy.

Stitchopedia Video & Photo Tutorial

Do you want to know how to KFB (Knit Front and Back)? Well, here you will find written, photo, and video tutorials that will teach you this increase. KFB is an easy increase that does not create a hole. It gives the look of a knit stitch followed by a purl stitch on the front, and a purl followed by a knit on the back. Working this stitch backwards (knit back and front) does not create the opposite look; trust me, I’ve tried.

July 2020 Crafty Time with Jessie featured felt crafts, loom knitting, wood painting, and lots of fun with various Plaid products. I mean, Plaid just keeps sending me the coolest goodies and I LOVE playing with them and sharing them with you. I also really enjoyed the day I learned to use a straight loom knitter because one of you asked how to use it. Keep sending me questions and suggestions so I can be sure to share info YOU want.

You can find general info, links to all the weeks as we progress, and the current week’s videos HERE.

Yarn Dyeing with Indigo – This is so cool!

Yarn dyeing with indigo was way cooler than I imagined. It started out green! Really, green, I’m not kidding. I never knew indigo had an oxidation process, and it was really neat to watch. Plus, I had a blast coming up with ways to “tie” the yarn with rubber bands to get all sorts of cool designs.

This is our third installation of Adventures in Yarn Dying with Jessie At Home. There are two more still this year, so the fun will continue!

Upcycled Snow Folx can be made from crafty items you most likely already have in your stash. See what you have and then get creative! Maybe you don’t have as many buttons for hats, but you have pipe cleaners or little ribbon flowers. You could even use some clay to make hats, or yarn to make scarves. Just poke through your stash and have fun!

Yarn Over Purl Wise

Stitchopedia Video & Photo Tutorial

Yarn over purl wise isn’t used that often, but it’s a good skill to know for when you do need it. It’s super simple, basically a yarn over the other way. Really, that’s all. It’s almost embarrassing to make a tutorial. But not everyone learns the same way, so a tutorial is happening.
