March Goals 

I'm sort of bummed out that I didn't compleate all of my February craft goals because of all of the illnesses that went through our home. I didn't even start a book let alone finish reading one. I also ended up two hats short of my monthly goal and I didn't finish my socks for [...]

Daytona Day(s) 

Hey all! This last weekend was a bit exciting! After all of the illnesses that have gone through our home this month I was looking forward to some exciting entertainment. We were expected to get 13 inches of snow on Thursday so I snuggled in with some hot tea and yarn ready for a blizzard [...]

Ugly Ankle Socks

I managed to knit a pair of socks with some yarn that didn't quite turn out the way I had wanted it too. I figure that ankle socks to wear a round the house will be a perfect use for yarns that I am not totally satisfied with. I also knit a little mini sock [...]
