About Me:
Hey! I am an avid knitter and crocheter, I learned as a girl from my mama and grandmother. I learned to knit in the Eastern European style, and then learned this was "wrong", LOL. So i learned Western knitting. NOW i know it is just a different stitch configuration, so i enjoy both ways. I sometimes knit in the Combination style as well. I love all the different methods for different purposes.

I love making hats (knit) and amigurumi (knit or crochet). I have been wanting to try socks forever. I actually have many pairs started, but none finished :-) Maybe this is the year... **UPDATE** i made a little pair of baby socks, and absolutely loved making them! I hope to make more. BUt ... so many projects... so little time :o) NoW my newest project to conquer is spinning.

I also love to quilt, tat, and sew. And cook. And make cleaning products. And recycle stuff.... I have been known to stuff my amigurumi with dryer lint ;-) This is an eastern thing, or perhaps a lesson from my depression era Father - don't waste anything.

I am crazy about making stuff from scratch - not just food, and clothes, but also laundry detergent. But ya, mostly food, LOL. i make my own yoghurt, bread, pasta, junk like that. Even filo dough for baklava :) (Remember, I am Eastern European)

I am married and have three children, aged 6, 4 and 1.
I do have MS, have had it since my first was born. So my hands are clumsy and my vision is quite sketchy. I have periods of blindness. Please do excuse my typing errors!! And i tend to ramble, probably from the brain damage ;o)

Blessings, and Happy knitting!!

I am really loving making socks, but i do love slippers too... so i took a break to make a few pairs. They were fun because they were felted...

Here is a mary jane pattern which i bought on ravelry. (French Press)

Before felting:…

i finally made a pair of socks!!!!

Thanks to Kelley P's awesome you tube tutorials. It was So EASY, i got my mom to start a pair too. I made a pair of toddler socks for my 1 year old. They are in Caution WOTA (worsted weight) with squirrel grey heels and toes. No pictures, as i just never get a chance, lol.



I am now making a pair of light pink anklet socks (palette sock yarn) for my 6 year old. They will actually have some blue variegated craft store sock yarn ( by some celebrity that i don't recognize) for the heels… Continue

New Year, New Knitting!

Posted on January 1, 2010 at 8:30am 4 Comments

Here it is, twenty ten! The aughts are over!!

I am not one for new year's resolutions. I resolve to do things all the time, any time of year. And I actually do some of them, I am just type-A like that. SO, any resolution I make on January 1st is just a regular old resolution, no need to call it a "New Year's Resolution"

So anyway, what have I resolved to do, particuarly concerning my knitting & crocheting?

New Born's Going Home Hat

Posted on December 30, 2009 at 2:00pm 3 Comments

Yahoo, I just love hats!!! And I love color work to spice it up. This hat was made at the request of a friend, expecting her second in January. I put it off so long (she asked back in October!) and I JUST managed to finish it, hopefully she will receive it before the birth, as it is to go with the baby's going home outfit. It is a basic little hat with a bit of 1x1 ribbing, then some very simple colorwork to match the outfit. I made it up as i went along.…

Oh, wow, Jenny, that was awhile ago! Susan, Peggy and I had so much fun with that. And having to keep it secret for so long seemed agonizing. Well, it was a month or two. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it.

I'm not active there either. Just to look patterns and on occasion what friends are doing. Thanks for your birthday! November is a great birthday month!

October or November? What day? I couldn't find you on Ravelry. I would love to put it on my Spin Along list. What day is your sweet DH's? I have those listed to if I know the date.

Well, we are certainly glad you chose us! Whenever anyone has joined the Spin Along, I try to gather extra info, such as birthdays. So I pop over there to see. So glad your eyes are doing better right now. We think about you all the time but we all understand with little ones how hard it can be to have time to play here.

Welcome to the Spin Along! I hope you have as much fun as I've been having!

Thanks for the compliment - I realized when I went to view your comment that it had been a while since I had uploaded photos so just added a few new ones...a couple new bags that are slated to be part of KP's IDP patterns...Your hoopskirt scarf is wonderful...very eye catching.

BTW, aren't you over on Ravelry? I don't see a Ravelry name for you.

Hi Jenny! It's so great to find a knitter that's in upstate ny on knitpicks! I haven't been to any yarn shops in saratoga but I'm eager to get there! I have been to vermont for my yarn and they have some great shops there! A couple of friends of my mineand I were going to go up to saratoga to look for some shops so if you know of any great shops then let me know! Have fun knitting! :)
