Christmas Socks

These socks were a lot of fun to knit and now my toes can be festive during this holiday season. I love how they are miss matched & I have more than enough yarn to knit another pair. I added ribbing to fit into the arches of my feet and I used the true afterthought…… Continue reading Christmas Socks

No Start December

Hello all! I hope that you all had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend. We spent the holiday at home. My hubby made a ham dinner and chocolate pie. I made cranberry relish and sweet potatoes. I had a lovely time knitting and drinking hot beverages, but now it’s time to hit the grind stone and finish…… Continue reading No Start December

30 Week Knitting Challenge: Week 11

The 30 Day Knitting Challenge originally posted by Knitting in Wonderland. I first saw it on the blog In The Rounds. I wanted to participate but from past experience I knew that I would never keep up with 30 straight days of blogging. So I decided to tweak the challenge to fit my preferences. I…… Continue reading 30 Week Knitting Challenge: Week 11

Orange Barley Hat

I think that I just might have the barley hats out of my system. I love how bright and cheery this one is. My Daughter really turned up her nose at the thought of me adding orange to the Unicorn Farts yarn but she fell in love with it before I had finished knitting the…… Continue reading Orange Barley Hat

Messy Monday

This yarn was dyed with orange Kool – Aid! I mixed 9 packages of Kool – Aid with enough water to cover the yarn and then I heated it up in a roasting pan on medium heat until I started to see small bubbles. Then I turned the heat off, put the lid on and…… Continue reading Messy Monday

Great Pumpkin Cookies

  Tomorrow is supposed the day of the big craft sale but as I type this post I’m not sure if I will be able to make it. We were supposed to get 3 – 6 inches of snow over night and I’m certain that we have at least twice that amount. I haven’t even started…… Continue reading Great Pumpkin Cookies

Barley Hat

I am so pleased with the way this Barley Hat turned out. I held two strands of my hand dyed yarns together to create this look . I have enough yarn left to make two more hats. I want to dye some orange yarn to pair with the colorful yarn and maybe gray or black…… Continue reading Barley Hat

Wow, it’s been over a week since I have logged into WordPress. Thankfully I have had a few scheduled posts to entertain you all but I feel terrible that I haven’t found time to approve and reply to comments let alone read your blog posts. I have been so busy and something had to move…… Continue reading WIP Wednesday

Messy Monday: Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad naughty

Hey, Y’all I dyed this yarn the same day as the other Christmas yarns but I took me forever to come up with a name. I started thinking of Christmas songs about Christmas trees and suddenly this song popped into my head. It’s a little cheeky so listen at your own risk… Let’s Be Naughty…… Continue reading Messy Monday: Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad naughty

NaKniSweMo2016 Week 1

I have been enjoying knitting my Puntilla Sweater thus far. I have however, had a few hiccups in my progress. Both of them were my own fault but now the hard part is done and I can just add length, sleeves, and a collar from here. I love the sky blue color that I chose…… Continue reading NaKniSweMo2016 Week 1
