9 Easy Knitting Projects for Mom

Happy Mother's Day! I have always believed that handmade crafts and cards are the perfect way to show your mother that you love her. I was thrilled when my friends at Prime Publishing asked me to take a look at AllFreeKnitting's latest eBook, 9 Easy Knitting Projects for Mom.

This free eBook contains adult knitting patterns that would be perfect to cast on for your mother. The 9 patterns include three scarves, one shawl, two clutches, a hat, a pair of socks and a pair of legwarmers. The Sashay Awhile Scarf is a romantic ruffle scarf - a perfect warm weather knit. This is also a good opportunity to try out the popular ribbon yarns that are hitting the scene. The One Shoulder Shawl is a simple lace patternt aht would be great for beginners. Try using luxury yarns to dress it up, or if your mom is more casual then it would work great more of a workhorse yarn for daily use. The Entrelac Clutch is darling, and a stashbuster, too! The yoga socks weren't what I expected, as they are socks without a heal or a toe. If you like the pattern and wanted to adapt them to classic socks it wouldn't be yard, but these look super cozy.

There are many Mother's Day knitting patterns out there, but I think that "9 Easy Knitting Projects for Mom" will have a lasting place in my virtual knitting library. Don't forget to call your mom today!
