Half way there – 2017

I have made a huge dent in my list of goals for the year! So far I have used 8.15 miles of yarn and that doesn't include works in progress or dishcloths.  I've finished 99 projects so far this year.   I'm really curious to see what the next six months bring. Hopefully a lot… Continue reading Half way there – 2017

Cozy Memories Blanket Update. 

I can't believe that another three months flew by that fast! The year is almost half over and Christmas is six months from today. I've been really busy with life and kids and it seems like I haven't had any quiet time to pop on here to post or read other blogs in a while. … Continue reading Cozy Memories Blanket Update. 

Misc. Crafts

Stash Basket 

My Grandma gave me some vintage rug yarn that was made of polyester and cotton. I knew that I wasn't going to be able to make a garment or any like that with the yarn but I thought that I might be able to use it. The other day I pulled it out and whipped… Continue reading Stash Basket

Bright & Cheery For My Dark Soul 

Hello All! Wow! Summer has arrived! It has been so hot and dry these last few weeks.

Afghans/Blankets

Modern Granny Rectangular Afghan 

This Afghan was really fun to make. I started it in February and worked about four rounds before loosing interest in it. I picked it up a few days ago and sailed through it. I've never crochet an afghan like this before but I have already started a second afghan. This pattern made a really sturdy,… Continue reading Modern Granny Rectangular Afghan

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

Baby Blanket 

I made this cute textured blanket for my cousin's 9th child. I really wanted a practical baby gift that would see a lot of use. I made it a little larger than the pattern called for so hopefully the little guy will get some use out of it for the next few years. It's funny… Continue reading Baby Blanket 

Allergies

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
