The larger Baby Surprise Jacket (BSJ) for BS is done except for the hood (You will have to scroll down if you use the link).
Shoulder seams still need to be sewn, and there are no buttons yet, but that shouldn't…Continue
Looking forward to a nice, quiet day at home with the family. Everyone is off of work all day today. The girls have recovered from their Senior Prom on Friday night, my husband is back from his sailboat race. Friday night was pretty good for me, though. Sitting by the TV, catching up on Game of Thrones while knitting my second baby hat for the hospital. My goal is two hats a month and I'm almost finished my second hat. After that, I'm…Continue
I just finished this pair of socks for a lady who had socks from me before & really liked them.
I used Online 4 ply yarn Fancy Colour Range number 1347 I think the picture of the colours show them a bit brighter than they are in true life while my photo is a bit darker …
At Cheryl's request, here are a couple of pictures from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.:
My little brother's stuck in Louisiana and we are going out there to rescue him and bring him back home to California. I'm having a raffle of some great yarn in an effort to raise some money to be able to cut the high cost of gas. Check it out!You're helping out and maybe winning some great yarn or even handknit socks!
Progress on the Fiji sock!
I just returned from a weekend trip to Grand Junction, Colorado, to help register voters. It was about five hours each way, so there was lots of knitting time in the car. (It's amazing how much you can get done cooped up in the car.) The yarn is Knit Picks Glimmer in Fiji. The…
Well, a lot has happened since my last blog entry:
1. Went with my daughter, Lindsey, to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We both had a really great time. The minute that my daughter her the first sheep bleating, she was no good for 10 minutes! She couldn't stop laughing. We met a lot of interesting people and saw a lot of neat things. I picked up a new drop spindle from my favorite crafter, some lovely dark blue merino and silk yarn, a pair of lovely ebony knitting needles…Continue

Hello fellow knitters and spinners… hope you are all well, and that spring is giving you good weather and lots of fiber enjoyment.
My blog today is about the story of an Angry Bird.
As most of you know, I knit for all of my grandchildren. It’s pretty easy to knit a sweater/vest/scarf, etc. for a granddaughter, or a simple hat or sweater for a baby. But what do you knit for a 10 year old boy? Pretty hard to figure out!
A few weeks ago, my daughter, Deb, suggested that…Continue
Today is Daphne's birthday! It's hard to believe it has already been two years!
Here's one of her new toys. It's a castle slide, just right for a little princess with an imagination and lots of energy. Baxter, the dog, enjoys watching her play on it, especially because it means she plays outdoors longer. Her little brother is…Continue
Here is the Aran Sweater I been working on I finished it last night.
I had started I think just after Christmas & was doing well but dropped it as DH needed some socks then having a bout of Vertigo also stopped me working on it so last Sunday I picked it up again I had the front started & about half may be a little less done so this week I managed to get the rest of the front done plus sleeves &…Continue
Well I'm back after two exciting days at the Maryland Sheep and Wool. My first stop was at a booth for Lavender Hills Farm where I purchased 2 lbs of Cormo. She told me that she some one of her fleeces took 2nd place in the judging and another took 3rd. Sure enough when DH and I got down to where the fleece sale was there were her fleeces in the silent auction. Wehad a bit of a wait to get in the fleece sale as it did not open until 9AM, The wait seemed like forever. Women were lining up…Continue

The body is almost finished. The nose is just resting on the appliqué. I have to sew it on and do the nostrils in reverse-appliqué, as I did for the eyes.…Continue
Last night I went to my first knitting group meeting. What a nice group of women. Everyone was very warm and welcoming even though we'd never met before. Everyone brought out their current projects as well as recent purchases. I never saw so many lace shawls. It makes me want to try more adventurous projects.
The group knits baby caps for premature babies and pink scarves for women undergoing cancer treatments. When my daughters were born, they were premies and someone…Continue
