Melted Crayon Socks 

Wow! I love how these socks turned out. This is the last skein of my anniversary yarn. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to knit with it. I think that they make great cheery socks. The ribbing that I added makes them extra soft and squishy.  RAVELRY NOTES RECIPIENT: me… Continue reading Melted Crayon Socks

The tree that conspires to kill me

The crabapple tree that bothers my allergies so much is in full bloom! Within a week these blossoms should fall off and blow away! Until then I'm just going to live in my climate controlled imaginary bubble. Where I can knit and drink coffee to my hearts content while imaginary fairies clean my house.  Have… Continue reading The tree that conspires to kill me

WWI hat 

The other day I found a WWI hat pattern which had been re written into modern knitting terms. I thought that would be the perfect hat to donate to Scarves for Troops.

April Goals

Is it really April already? We have about 7 weeks of school left and then its summer. While I appreciate the break of not having to get grumpy kids up and moving out the door each morning I really miss the structured days that come with the school year. I'm an introvert that can always find… Continue reading April Goals

March Goals 

I'm sort of bummed out that I didn't complete 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… Continue reading March Goals

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… Continue reading a donation hat
