This week has been busy! (So what else is new?)
There are presents to wrap and send off, more knitting and quilting to do (some of which I can't show you) and other preparations to make. We took the time to dress up the pups and mug for the camera, though.
The annual get together for the…Continue
The snow is still falling down! I have made an entire hat and am now working on a scarf to match!
Today the snow is falling, falling, falling..... covering the ground with a blanket of wintery white. Hundreds of thousands of snowflakes, each one different and unique, the wonder of snow, tiny pieces of art floating down from the sky.…Continue

It snowed last night and it looks so pretty! I am still such an Iowa girl at heart and it never seems like Christmas to me until it snows. It is only supposed to be 2-4 inches today so it is nothing like what they are getting in Iowa but it is enough to see it falling and accumulate!
On another note, I got my latest KP order yesterday!…Continue
The rain is gently falling on the dry ground outside my house.
I am snug and warm inside with all my wonderful fiber-y things, a cup of Earl Gray, some beautiful music and my spinning wheel. The spinning wheel that has been sorely neglected for too long, today I will remedy that... Gods in His heaven and all's right with my world...…Continue
I am really loving making socks, but i do love slippers too... so i took a break to make a few pairs. They were fun because they were felted...
Here is a mary jane pattern which i bought on ravelry. (French Press)
Starting with my first blog post here, I will tell you a bit about myself... I learned how to crochet when I was 9 from a neighbor, and that was the start of my love of all things fiber related! Over the years I have also learned to knit, weave and spin. I have dabbled in basket making, beadwork, sewing, quilting and tatting. I love history and am now making historic reproduction textiles. I started creating items for the public in 2000 when I started my home business…Continue
This is Lydia's first completed project. She was sooo excited! She has started many projects but not finished them. Now she is making a k3p3 scarf for her brother who is in the military. She misses him so much.
And below is what my kitchen cabinets look like now. I am really not very creative when it comes to decorating but I dreamed this and I think it turned out looking cute.…Continue
To be more specific, Christmas stockings.
I've been anxious to start decorating the house for Christmas since the day after Thanksgiving. I had hoped to do some while my girls were home on their break, but it just didn't happen due to schedules and other interferences called life. My…Continue
I'm almost done with my first dino! Finally, after weeks of being overly busy and sick, devoting nearly every free moment of time to hooking has paid off! Here's what the head and body look like now!

Thanks to all who support that it doesn't matter how you get there, just so long as you get there!
Thinking about frogging a 2-@-once socks that I've got on needles to make some that work with the colorway! Also working on a circular yoke cable top -- yeah, I frogged two sweaters to do this one! I am actually enjoying the pattern, and feel good about the progress, so this one may actually get finished! I'm also working on convertible mittens…Continue
My goodness, it's been SO long since I last posted here!! I've missed you all!! I have kept posting on my other blog, but once things started to pick up with the wedding, I just didn't have the time to get over here as much. However, now that the wedding is over, (it went fantatic by the way) I seem to have a little more time on my hands to come over here and post. I've decided I'm going to do my best to keep this blog devoted to KP related items as that will…Continue
It's 100% alpaca, so should be nice and warm! It's for a family member who might see this, so I can't say, but I'll try to post a photo later on its new owner.
I have never made so many presents for friends and relatives as this…Continue
and one of the very unexpected outcomes of the holiday bazaar was the evolution of my hair bows - bow…
Hey sock knitters
Well, I am on my way again with my new adventure
This pattern is called "Robin Foot" I got this pattern off
of raverly. This pattern is more like a slipper boot than a sock.
The yarns I will be using is "Bernat Berella 4"
the colors are "Deep Forest Green and Black" and size 8 circulars needles.
This pattern seems exciting and I haven't been excited about a pattern in a long time.
So I am off to start my adventure.

It has been a while but I am finally finish these socks
I am going to be honest with you I got that 2nd sock syndrome
I think the reason being is that the needles that I used were a size one.
First, it took to long to finish the foot and besides my fingers started to hurt
I am not use to knitting with needles this little.
But I guess this is a lesson to learn that I will try to avoid this…Continue
