It's Been a Long Time

It's been a very long time since I posted anything here. I have had a very productive summer, although I have never finished the Moderne Baby Blanket. One of these days...

I just finished up a Clapotis using Evil Stepmother Imagination. I love that yarn. I made the Clapotis for a friend for her birthday, but I really wanted to keep it for myself. I bought four skeins, but only used three. So I think I am going to make a smoke ring from the leftover skein.

I have since… Continue

Well, I never have finished the Moderne Baby Blanket. However, I did manage to get 3 burp towels and 3 bibs done for my friend Brenda. She had her little girl last week and is loving the burp cloths.



I now have a pair of… Continue

Only 2 More Weeks!

I have been working on a Moderne Baby Blanket for quite a while now. I have also made 2 burp cloths, 2 bibs, 2 baby surprise jackets, hat and booties, and 2 pairs of socks along with this blanket. My problem now is that my friend Brenda is due in 3 weeks, but is getting done work in 2 weeks. I am only on block 8. I really wanted to give it to her on her last day of work, but she may receive it after she has the baby. We have changed to summer hours at work (7:30 to 5:30 M-T and 7:30 to 11:30 F)… Continue

Kool Aid Dyeing

This week I tried Kool Aid dyeing for the first time. How much fun!! I used two skeins of Bare sock yarn. The first one I used 4 packages of pink lemonade in my 8-cup glass measuring bowl. I zapped it twice, waiting 5 minutes between zaps. I wasn't real happy with the color so after the second zap I mixed up a package of strawberry and added that to the mix. I zapped it for another 2 minutes and that was all it needed. I then let it sit for a hour or so… Continue

Spring is Here!!

I believe it has finally arrived. It is supposed to be in the low 60's today!! Silas is loving it. He gets to go for a long walk every night! Now I am awaiting the arrival of the ticks. Silas hate ticks. He can tell when one gets on him and just sits down and looks for it. So I have resorted to carrying tweezers with me on our walks. I have to remove the tick and show him before killing it.

In the past week and a half, I have finished the Baby Kimono and made a hat to go with it. I… Continue

Yet More Snow

It snowed here again on Friday and Saturday. I think we picked up about 4 more inches. Today is supposed to be sunny and around 40. I sure hope so.

I did have a productive week. I finished the Baby Genius Burp Cloth. I also made a Baby Kimono. I just have to sew it up and add a border. I am trying to decide between and I-cord border and a single crochet border. I have used Sugar'n Cream Lavender Ice. I am going to use hot purple… Continue

I though it was supposed to be Spring!?

I live in Maine where we expect to have winter, but this winter has been exceptional. We have had over 100 inches of snow this year, and that is in the southern part of the state. Today it is in the mid-30's with 20 mph winds. Isn't Spring supposed to be warm?? This isn't warm, not even close!! Now that I've vented....

I just started knitting socks in January. Kelley's podcast about being deserted on an island convinced me to try. I am totally hooked. That is all I have knit since… Continue
