OK, so forever since I posted! New news is that I am starting 2 circles this Fall. One for the knitting challenged and one for Bundles of Love charity organization. I anticipate lots of fun!! I am working out a starter agenda and I think I will be asking what all the knitter want to learn then teach them! I have high hopes for my future knitter and can't wait to get started!

Believe it or not our little Nicholas is 8 months old! Where did all the time go? I am having a great time… Continue

I love my KP yarns, do you think they would open a store front?

Posted on May 9, 2010 at 8:20pm 2 Comments

I have toyed with the idea of opening my own store for quite some time. This year I got a little more serious. I have done tons of research and come to the conclusion that there really isn't a lot I could do to make my store unique...I got to thinking about KP yarns and I know a lot of people in my knitting circles that order from KP regularly. What if KP had a store, with strictly KP yarns, and classes... I would love to teach knew knitters and what a dream job to be surrounded by KP yarns… Continue

I am so excited to get back to knitting. Latest project= Mukluk Slipper Socks! It took forever to write the pattern but now that I nailed it down I got a couple of pair made. As always I have to post a picture of my new babe! He is 9 weeks how time flies!…


Baby Keeps Knitter From UFO's

Posted on December 24, 2009 at 5:12am 4 Comments

I haven't posted in an eternity! Being pregnant then having a baby has kept me from remembering to take pictures of my few projects that I have finished over the last few months! I did remember to take a picture of the cool felted oven mitts I made. I couldn't resist adding a picture of our new miracle born 12/18! He is the best Christmas gift!…

Hi - our admin knows about the spammers and is banning them as soon as they appear, but it seems there's always another one to take their place. I'm sorry about that!

I realized after awhile that I wasn't counting my stitches as I was going. I'll count better on my next one. I had found a pattern for a tote in a magazine using granny squares so that is my goal when I get better at it.
You were just being nice when you said my square was cute (smile).

Thank you! I don't know much about felting...yet...but I will have to look into it. I actually ended up finding a pattern that I decided to try, but I'm just now able to get on my computer to update on here! I really appreciate your suggestion.

thanks Sybil--I was thinking about it more last night, and realized the same thing...scary huh? I just made anafghan that was a similar could just crochet the squares "for fun" so to speak, or make a wholes sampler afghan. A friend gave me a large box of yaarn, and as she had started it, I finished it..loads of fun.....I think I'll do that ! Thanks...

I've been "off my yarn" for a little while. I still have to do the very last thing on my sampler, the Afterthought Pocket... cut into the knit fabric... YIKES! LOL! I've scrapped the idea of making my first sweater for my DG... the author encouraged that I not do that. She said it would really be best if I made my first sweater to fit myself and to look at it as an extension of the Sampler... purely a learning experience. Use cheap yarn that I don't care about and don't worry about the finished product... focus on experiencing the process more than about making it "right." I like that cuz I learned SO much from the Sampler, and I understand her thinking.

I've got some yarn I'd bought to make an afghan and have more than enough to make a sweater, from what the book says. But, I'm starting on a Norberta Dragon for DG first, then the sweater...

Thanks for the hat response... I had come to the conclusion that I must have missed the memo about using a negative ease for them, cuz I swatched, measured, calculated... had my husband check my math :-) ... and it still came out big. I made one for myself [crochet] in an extra chunky yarn from Rowan and it came out great. I made another [knit] for my daughter in a bulky yarn and it came out loose... not too loose to wear, but looser than she'd prefer. So, I still have plenty of the yarn to make another smaller one... I used Magic Loop, so I was gonna lose a repeat on each side, and I think that will be sufficient... I made another, a completely different design for my MIL and it was HUGE! That one will be just a little more complicated to reduce down, because of the pattern I put into it, but, it was so large I have a good idea how to do it and not screw up the pattern...
