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. The pattern was originally supposed to be knit with 100% wool and in certain colors so that they could be worn with a …

ISTJ Personality 

The other day I found an app that you can use to take the Myers Briggs personality test with. I have known for years that I am an introvert. Most of the information about ISTJ was dead on with my personality but I'd like to reflect on one thing. "You can usually accomplish any task once …

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 …

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 …

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 …

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. …

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 …
