Happy New Year! As I look ahead at 2019 one of my goals is to design more. I’ve had a few ideas floating around in my head and this year I want to get them published. First up, the Tundra Scarf! Knit with the yarn held doubled, this long textured scarf will be your go […]Read More New Pattern: Tundra Scarf
Call me crazy, because we all know I constantly bitch about lack of time, but I’ve joined in on the WIP Wrestling KAL for July. It’s all about finishing as many WIPs as possible. I currently have 4 tagged, 2 that I think are perfectly reasonable and will get two and two that will be […]Read More WIP Wrestling Mania!
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!)
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.

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…
That would be my latest venture. For kicks I joined a swap on Ravelry for knitted pasties. I figured it would be something fun and different to knit. The coolest part is that I could knit up a pair in an hour or less! I just wish I’d had more time to embellish them. (sorry […]Read More Knitted Pasties?
I now have three featured photos on Ravelry! Awesomeness. Funky Purse: Charity Capelet: Valentine Pillow: In other knitting news, I’ve started working on some quick/easy projects knit on big needles. This allows me to easily set them aside when Caitlin is awake and wanting to play with mommy. My first project is a series of […]Read More Featured Photo
