Holiday Stash Knit Down

I actually made some set and achieved some knitting goals that past holiday season. I managed to knit down the stash by some where in the neighborhood of 21 skeins of yarn.

I used no patterns for the mitts, half socks, and anything that was made from the… Continue

One Sweater, Two Sweater, Three Sweater More

  At what point do you begin to think you have knitting ADHD? I have begun three different sweater projects and I switch between all of them every evening. Is that weird?  Oh, did I mention I also have a crocheted blanket going too?

Sweater one, front…

This was the week we said goodbye to visiting grandkids.

When I took Soren and his family to the airport I learned that he didn't have a hat that fit, so I dug through my stash when I got back and found some Swish DK in "Dusk." I CO immediately.

I'm using…

High Fiber—Winding Down the Year

Christmas day at our house started out like this:

It execrated from there. In a word: Bedlam!

The day after Christmas is my birthday. Rather than go out to breakfast as we usually do, we ate at home and the ladies went out for pedicures. Miss Daphne got her first pedicure.…

Blustery Weather: Need More Handwarmers!

   Brrrr... finally got to pull on my hand warmers this morning as I headed out the door into a very blustery November day!  But, I think I need to revisit my pattern as my wrists were still cold.  My warmers only covered my hands and I really could use some length to cover my frozen wrists!! Back to the needles!!
