Warm Green Mittens

Published on October 23, 2016 by in Felt, Mittens

It’s getting to be that time of year. The air starts to cool, the leaves start to change and you can sometimes catch a whiff of fireplaces being stoked. So finding a project for the winter is great fun. I love to knit, duh, and I’ve been learning to felt. So the perfect project came

Have you tried the Kitchener Stitch?

So I had started my blanket project called Persian Dreams and as I read the instructions I soon discovered that each side of each hexagon are put together using a technique called Kitchener stitch. Also called Grafting. It’s a beautiful way to bring two separate knitted pieces together.  It’s an invisible seam and looks like

Sock Making in General

Published on August 18, 2016 by in Socks

Ok, Socks.  You either knit a bunch of them, or you don’t knit any of them.  Up until recently, I only could ever knit ONE of them.  I’ve had a condition for years that prevented me from completing a pair of socks.  Yes I had one-sock-syndrome. I’m sure people have heard about the big black

Has a Yarn Ever Matched so Perfectly? Ashes of Al’ar Becomes a Winged Shawl

Ok, true confessions, I play World of Warcraft. I have played this amazing game for more than 12 years. Seriously, saying this out loud makes me cringe a little. Mostly because I’m sort of old and decrepit  experienced in life for being a gamer.  You don’t find many women my age (or even just women

Persian Dreams melts my heart

Published on July 30, 2016 by in Afghan/Blanket, Yarn

Every now and then a pattern comes along that calls to your heart.  I saw this pattern a while back and thought it was absolutely stunning.  Then a few weeks went by and I saw it again.  This time I added it to my wish list of future projects and thought….someday….this will be mine! Well

Blue Lace Sweater

Published on April 19, 2016 by in Sweater

I love to knit sweaters.  I’ve been knitting sweaters for about 25 years.  I’ve made colorful ones, cabled ones and woolly warm ones. I’ve even made sweaters and got all the pieces knitted then during the sewing together stage, figured out that I really didn’t like the sweater and never completed it. I know, would

How to Weave in those ends!

Published on March 24, 2016 by in How To, Videos

One of my all time favorite things to do after completing a great project is weaving in the ends.  Yeah no, not really.  I have actually met people who like to weave in ends. I don’t know what’s wrong with them. It’s just one of those tasks that actually crosses my mind when I’m picking

Dust Off the Cobwebs! I’m Back

Published on March 13, 2016 by in About Me

So ok I’ve been gone for a while.  A long while.  Taking care of real life things have caused my online activity to come to a screeching halt.  So I’m currently in a much needed lull!  Let’s hope it lasts more than a few weeks or months.  So I’m diving in full speed ahead into

Red Market Bag

Published on February 20, 2014 by in Bags

I like to have a handy bag available when I need one.  This one is perfect for taking the grocery for supplies, or filling with yarn projects and hanging on a door knob! Made of Cotton and using an easy Yarn Over and Knit 2 together pattern, this bag was a quick knit!
