I continue to make progress on my project list for the year… and continue to get sidetracked! Much of my time has been spent on my Saturate and Find Your Fade shawls. Saturate is all done being knit, I now need to block and add the fringe. For my Find Your Fade, I’m almost to […]Read More Let’s get caught up on knitting!

I had inquired with them about 6 months ago on how much […]Read More Time to make a change…

The downside is that I ran out of yarn. I have 6 decrease repeats left and I am out of yarn. Normally not a big deal […]Read More Still Trying to Knit
This post is long overdue and I certainly apologize for the delay. Work is in the forefront right now (along with my daughter) so the rest of life seems to sit and wait until I have time. About 18 days ago Carrie (craftypuppylover on Ravelry) posted a yarn that was inspired by me and some […]Read More Inspired By Me? (aka: Carrie Rocks!)
I previously mentioned that I have a directive from my husband to get out and knit more. Preferably in a bar or lounge type environment.
