yarn love {cozy cover ups}

Hello! I am trying to get back into the swing of things as life slowly gets back to normal after the holidays. I miss Christmas already, but I'm also ready to get back on schedule.

The chilly winter air kind of comes and goes around here. I was expecting it to be really cold tonight so we decided to burn our Christmas tree and cook hot dogs over the fire with some friends. It turned out to be pretty  mild but we had fun anyways!

Sitting around the campfire always gets me into the mood to snuggle up in some really great knit blankets and wrap up in some scarves and there's my inspiration for today's yarn love round-up of crochet and knitted goodness!

This hat caught my eye right away. What a great design! It has a vintage quirk to it and it's just adorable. It is the Poppy hat by Justine Turner.

This shawl is so pretty and I love the way she wears it. This is the Gillespie by Louisa Harding.

I love this clamshell crochet pattern by Sandra of Cherry Heart. She made a pillow cover with it, but I really love this blanket! I worked up a swatch of my own and the pattern is written really well and easy to follow along! 

That's all for now!
Here's to a good start to a new week!
