About Me:
I have been working with yarn in one way or another since I was six. That's when I learned to crochet. I attempted knitting when in highschool but became too frustrated so I quit trying. About ten years ago I began weaving and aquired a catalog from a major company. They also had many beautiful knitting yarns and patterns. My fascination is really with fiber and the creative process, right? So of course I couldn't resist those patterns and yarns. I bought a How To book, bought needles, and dug out some yarn. This time I was off and 'knitting'. Shortly after that (or was it before?) I became enthralled with knitted lace (lace knitting?). There has been NO looking back!

Nutty for Other Things, too

Knitting just happens to be at the top of my list of creative things to do right now. I also crochet, weave, spin, sew, quilt and do paper crafting and rubber stamping. Never in any exact order. And never as much or as often as I would like since I am also raising children. That, of course, is my primary responsibility in life right now, and I love being a mom. It's even better when the children share in these other things I like to do.

In a Nuttyshell: I finally got smart!

Posted on August 19, 2013 at 8:06am 15 Comments

Yes!  It dawned on me a couple of weeks ago that if I wanted to stay in contact with my friends here, I need to use the blog option, not try to keep up with the discussion threads.

I'm not going to whine, really I'm not, but here's the low down on the latest MIA.

1) Replaced 166' of drop pipe and pump in our well.  But only after 6-8 weeks of nursing it along until we had the $$ for that unexpected expense.  (12 children, 3 of whom are toddlers, and monitoring…

A 'Nutty'shell: Singles, Plies and Setting

Posted on April 1, 2011 at 10:36am 7 Comments

I'm having trouble getting any decent pictures to put into this post, so I've decided to just write the info, and then sometime later if I can get the pics to come out, I'll add them in.  (I think I can do that?!) 

Anyway, the idea here, was for me to put into one place all I know about singles, plies and setting as it pertains to singles.  If I 'dump' all I know, then I think it's easier for everyone to digest that info, collate it with what they know that isn't here, then we can…

Busy Bees at our house!

And a couple of wonderful sights, as well.

This is the mountain we see to the northwest out our livingroom window every day.  Several views of it are in Cowgirl's album, but I thought this one was 'a little different' enough to share it with you.

A 'Nutty'shell: An Evenly Wound Bobbin

Posted on December 13, 2010 at 7:30pm 9 Comments

Some time ago some of us were talking about the advantages of having a Wooly Winder for a spinning wheel. The main ones being you don't have to handle the yarn and move it from hook to hook on your flyer, and you have an evenly wound bobbin. [This may have taken place on a discussion that has been deleted since I'm not finding it to link to it. =( ]

It would be great to have the advantages of this…

Hi, Nutty, haven't seen you around the crochet boards much and wondered what you are up to.  I'll check out your photos to see if there is anything I've missed.

Hi, Nutty. The sunset photos definitely have a southwestern feel to them. Where do yall live. I live in Albuquerque and have also lived in South Texas, South Florida, and Phoenix area. Your white lace shawl is just too beautiful to be true. Wow!

Hi Nutty !  :)

Thanks so much for cheering me on with my two projects for my mom and dad. Preps are right on time. I'm just about to continue with my mom's red shawl. If my calculations are correct, I have around 2 weeks to finish it. That should be plenty. I'm more concerned about my dad's blanket, figuring I won't do much work on that until my mom's shawl is done. And his birthday is only 2 weeks after my mom's. But I've met tighter deadlines. So for now I'm not going to stress out. Everything will fall into place somehow and get finished on time.

Hi Nutty!  I'm on KP only very briefly again, as the other day I suddenly decided I'd make a scarf for my MIL for Christmas.  I'm working on designing it myself - fun, fun, fun!  But I wanted to let you know I've been thinking of you and wondering how all is going for you and your family.  I was at Hobby Lobby on Sat. trying to find small amounts of fiber to do some needle felting, when I saw a stocking that would have been perfect for your oldest daughter.  Blues and browns, AND across the front "COWGIRL".  So cute, I immediately thought of you and your DD.  I hope to be able to spend more time soon looking at everything I've missed!  Have a wonderful evening.  :o)

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I got to spend some of today knitting, and I'm planning a trip to the LYS later this week as well as an order from KnitPicks soon. I plan to spend a lot of this year knitting & interacting with my new knitting friends.
