Anyway these are two washcloths that I knit out of some Simply cotton in Marshmallow. I LOVE this yarn. The other is out of Comfy Sport.…

Quick Birthday Knit

What did I do before I became a knitter? Seriously. Here it was a few days before my co-workers birthday and I needed a gift. Now with all the cold and flu that hit my household the last couple of weeks. My knitting time was not as much I would have liked. So out to the stores I go. Hours I looked from store to store trying to find a present. The whole time thinking I bet she would really like some thicker socks. Nope I tell myself this person is going to think more socks? I just gave a her…

 If you are wondering why you are seeing two blog post from me on the same day the answer is simple. The first blog post was meant for last week but I got sick and this blog post is for this week and I'm still sick. I figure might as well post while I can. I know I said I would talk about UFO's but change of plans. Plans always change when one is sick. Don't they?

So here we go. My answer to getting my knitting fix when sick. Start a new project. What?! Yep my answer is start a new…

Where has the time gone...

I totally skipped August! Has it really been that long since I last blogged?? Jeez I'm slipping big time.

Summer, it came so quick and now its over.

With all the blog posts catch up reading I've done of what our fellow knitters have been up to during the summer it got me to think about my summer. While I have not gone on any wild vacations or extravagant trips I did have fun this summer. Goodness this is starting to sound like one of those papers we use to write on the first day of… Continue

Addicted to collages?

Boy once again its been awhile since I've posted anything other than adding pictures to my page. There just never seem to be enough time in the day. So here a series of collages of what I have been up to. I heard of this photo program Picasa during the beginning of the TDF and ever since I have been having a great time making digital collages. Let's start shall we? First there was the major spinning event of July on Ravelry. Le "Tour" De Fleece ( TdF). Boy was this fun even for a beginner… Continue

My two cents...

Pennies are a wonderful thing. If you save enough of them can you buy wonderful yarns,needles,and fiber ect.... Then there is the other usefulness of a penny. It gives you an idea of measurement when showing your spun yarn. I've read blogs post in the past were people have done this I thought it was a neat idea so here I give you the penny...



This my current sip (spin in progress, it don't know if its a term but I like the sound of it)

Some lovely Romney roving…
