Grand Central Socks 

Hey All! I've had another productive crafting week. I've finished this pair of socks and I've knit four dishcloths. The weather hasn't been the greatest but hey that's spring in the Midwest. I received some good news and not so great news since my last post about our refrigerator that decided to die on April …

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 …

Sport Socks 

Hello all! My kids have been on Spring break the last few days and my free time really took a nose dive. We have been cleaning out closets and reorganizing some of the house.  The Spring break weather has been nice for the most part. Saturday it was 80° and beautiful Monday morning we woke …

Wee Lima 

Baby season tend to come and go in families. In the last month or so I have heard about two new baby boy's coming into the family so I figured that I had better get started on baby gifts. I used to keep a stash of baby gifts around the house but there were so …

Cozy Memory Afghan – Progress

I've finished knitting three months of squares into my cozy memory blanket. Each month has a 3 x 3 block with a color theme starting right to left. These will be the bottom (or top) three rows. I have a fleece blanket purchased that I would like to use to back the blanket when I …

Imbue Shawl 

I love how my most recent shawl turned out. I knit it with some yarn that I bought in December of 2014 to use for some color work hats. I had found that the baby alpaca yarn was so soft that was slippery and hard to work with. It split when I was trying to knit with it. I was …

March Socks

These are from some yarn that I dyed last year some time. It was one of my first experiments with using multiple colors and I wasn't too sure how I was going to like it knit up. However, am really pleased with the results but I didn't think there was enough purple in the yarn …

Ridge and Eyelet Socks 

I started this pair of socks way back in September but I lost interest in knitting them because they were being knit top down. I find that I prefer to knit socks from the toes up. I finally decided to just get on with it so I could use the needles for something else. These …

Striped Blueberry Waffle Socks 

Last week I was super productive. I managed to finish three pairs of socks, a cat blanket, and I made some stitch markers and progress keepers. I was pretty happy with all of the progress and then I woke up Friday morning with a sore throat and by Saturday I was pretty sure that it …

Sport Socks 

Good Morning! It sure is a bright and sunny day!!!  I decided to try something different with these socks. I have never knit sport weight socks before and now I can see why people enjoy it so much. These worked up really fast. I intend on giving them as a Christmas gift to my Momma! …

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 …

February Socks

I'm so happy to have my February socks finished for the #boxosox KAL. I'm still feeling unproductive and unfortunately this cruddy cold is still making its rounds through our house. Hopefully soon I will start sleeping better so that my productivity can increase. RAVELRY NOTES RECIPIENT: Me PATTERN: stitch counts and heel based on the …

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 …
