Keep Busy This President’s Day Weekend with Quick Projects

February 14th, 2013

Pin It

It’s almost here. The coveted three-day weekend. The opportunity to get that extra day you feel you need every weekend to get those extra household chores done, spend more time recharging, or take a mini road trip. No matter what your plans for the long weekend, one thing is for sure: it’s a perfect opportunity to use some extra downtime finish (or start!) some outstanding projects.

If you don’t already have a great project on your hook or needles, I’ve rounded up a collection of fun, quick-to-knit or -crochet patterns that you’ll be able to cast on and bind off in just one (long) weekend!

PS: Bonus pattern! If you really want to ring in President’s Day, why not make your own mini president?
