Life over the past 15 months has left me with little free time, especially time to do simple things such as knit, read, learn to use my sewing machine… you know, all those little things I may have taken for granted before. That said, I wouldn’t change a thing as Caitlin means more to me […]Read More Mother’s Day Directive
Back from Hawaii, the trip was so-so. I know, who comes back from a trip to Hawaii feeling that way, but given the medical complications that reared their ugly head it couldn’t be helped. The trip was bittersweet to say the least. Finding knitting inspiration in Hawaii is a funny thought given the constant temperature […]Read More April- Inspiration?
And I don’t have much to show for it. ~ I’m still seaming up the baby cardigan. It’s almost done… almost. I’m home on Thursday, if I find a moment I may try to finally get it done. ~ I did knit a “Hug” for my husband based on the one in the MasterCard commercials. […]Read More Last Day of March
Year older and likely wiser. I think having a baby does that too you. Or at least helps you view life in a very different way. Some of my birthday goodies that I’m exceptionally excited about: I see many Softies/plushies in my future. I can’t wait. I also want to try making a few aprons. […]Read More Birthdays Happen

The not knitting part… I’m taking three days off this week. Yesterday was the first of the three. Of course I found myself snowed in for the most part, but given what I was working on that really didn’t matter. And why is that, you ask? because I was painting our living room which I […]Read More Knitting, but not…
In an effort to de-stash a little I’ll be selling off some old yarn that I will never use. Some of it is cheaper Lion Brand or Red Heart type yarn and some of it is more organic/yummy yarn. I’ll post pictures and prices by Friday in a new blog post and then a way […]Read More Yarn Sale – Coming Soon!
That seems to be the theme lately, no time to knit. I entered the Ravelymics with the best of intentions. Scheduled knitting time, 2 WIPs and a pair of socks… surely I could get that done in 2 weeks. Nope. I got about 80% of one sock done and one of the WIPs went from […]Read More Not Knitting
Sooooo, no pictures yet. I know, I promised them in my last entry which was a month ago. *sigh* I have, however, cast on the Criss-cross Garter. And not just once or twice, but three times! The yarn/needle combination is incredibly slippery and it’s come off the needles a few times. And as I approach […]Read More Time is not on my side. No it’s not…
Neck warmers? Who knits those in the spring/summer? Apparently I do. There is a craft fair in August that I’m dying to participate in, Craftin’ Outlaws. This is year four and I’ve been to the last two. How awesome would it be to have a table to sell my hand knits? So that is my […]Read More Baby blankets and neck warmers
