At what point do you begin to think you have knitting ADHD? I have begun three different sweater projects and I switch between all of them every evening. Is that weird? Oh, did I mention I also have a crocheted blanket going too?
Sweater one, front…Continue

This was the week we said goodbye to visiting grandkids.
When I took Soren and his family to the airport I learned that he didn't have a hat that fit, so I dug through my stash when I got back and found some Swish DK in "Dusk." I CO immediately.
Christmas day at our house started out like this:
It execrated from there. In a word: Bedlam!
The day after Christmas is my birthday. Rather than go out to breakfast as we usually do, we ate at home and the ladies went out for pedicures. Miss Daphne got her first pedicure.…Continue

Brrrr... finally got to pull on my hand warmers this morning as I headed out the door into a very blustery November day! But, I think I need to revisit my pattern as my wrists were still cold. My warmers only covered my hands and I really could use some length to cover my frozen wrists!! Back to the needles!!

It might have been a hare-brained scheme to make four bunnies, but I finished the third boy bunny, this one for Johan.
Here's what he looks like without his little kimono. He's wearing garter-stitch booties and soaker, actually knitted as part of the legs and body.…
It's the little things in life...like reading knitting books, and blogs and marveling at how other people can make beautiful sweaters, with necklines and sleeves! And after years of pushing myself and trying over and over, I've finally made a sweater that looks like a sweater, feels like a sweater and although it is a little big on me...the pattern size I was following said it was Size S...hmmm...it is still a wearable sweater!!! I even wore it to the grocery last night!!!
I must keep…Continue

My family, while always supportive of me and my craftiness...I mean crafting...is always happy to see me engaged in ANOTHER yarn project.
