Cuddle Toes Mini

I am now offering the perfect sized skeins of Cuddle Toes, what a surprise I am calling them Cuddle Toes Minis.  Half the size of the regular Cuddle Toes they are 50 grams/1.75 ounces and 225 yards/205 meters.  They are just the right size for fingerless gloves, neck warmers and cowls. :)

Horseshoe Lace Cowl

Fend off those wintery chills with this pretty cowl.  Snug enough to keep your neck warm with just enough room to pull up over your chin when the breeze picks up.  The lace design is easy to memorize after just a few pattern repeats and knits up quickly.
