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 [...]

Baby Flax

I feel like I have been knitting and crocheting a lot the last few weeks but since most of the items that I have worked on have been big projects it feels like I have made little to no progress. On top of that I have been battling a cold/sinus infection for close to a [...]

I've been sick most of the week with a cruddy cold and fever & chills so I haven't made a lot of progress on my projects. I've slept a good portion of each day trying to kick this cold. It's a good thing that I completed all of my January goals by Sunday afternoon giving [...]

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 [...]

I will up date this post with new pictures later but I want to wear the sweater today first. 😉 The Flax Sweater  pattern by Tin Can Knits is probably the [...]

The First FO of the year

Ironically my first finished object of the year is Christmas gift for 2017. I started it on Christmas Eve. I wanted to start something Christmasy but yet girly and I think that I managed to pull off both. It's a pink striped Christmas stocking that will go to my cousin's baby for her second Christmas.

WOW, another crazy week has gone by and we are that much closer to Christmas. Luckily I have a few extra days to prepare to host the In-laws Christmas over New Years. Like my new matchy matchy socks? I knit the ones with orange heels for myself and the other pair for my Great Aunt. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Daughter Vertebrae Cardigan

It's finally done. I finished the cardigan that I knit for my daughter with some yarn that both of my kids dyed with Kool - Aid. I ran out of white yarn on the last sleeve and instead of having me get more white yarn out my daughter asked for me to finish it in [...]
