Striped Textured Cowl

Good Morning!  Looking for more last minute knits for Christmas?  This one is real quick! I had almost a whole skein of Cove left over after making my Mystic Comfort Pillow.  I also had some Prairie Lace weight Madelinetosh in my stash, so  I made a quick cowl with them. I alternated the DK weight […]

Something New

I started something new last night and I just can’t seem to put it down! This will be a quick project for that reason alone. I haven’t knit with red before but I really love it – this one especially that has some tones of black mixed in.  Maybe it’s the time of year with […]

New York, NY

I’m a day late on my post but I hope I’m not a dollar short because I’ve got a little somethin’ for ya! My husband has been traveling a bit and it worked out that we could meet up in NYC for the night Thursday and spend the day Friday in the city. It’s our […]

I just finished sewing on the buttons.

I am so happy with this project.  I rarely say that when I am finished with a knitted object or painting or anything I make myself.  I know the flaws or what “I should have done here or there.” But today I am happy.  This is a pattern is my own that I created while […]

Bobble Capelet

Good Morning!  It really is good because we have power!  It was a long 9 days – I feel bad for those still without. I am loving the fall sunshine today.  Capelet weather has arrived!  (or re-arrived after the winter blast we experienced last week.)

Sticking to it

I know I’ve told you before but I’ll say it again. I love afghans. I’m always wrapped up in one. I’ve made several and I’m in the process of making another. This one will be a Christmas gift for someone special in my husband’s family who just bought his first house.  That might be an […]

Taking Things for Granted.

I am sure in 2 weeks when I am fully powered up again I will take it all for granted.  The telephone, internet, flushing toilet, running water, heat, washing machine, dryer, coffee in an instant and all the other wonderful essentials I take for granted every day.  We are still without power.  I am thankful […]

Just can’t get enough

I have a little problem. I might not want to knit with anything except Madelinetosh ever again. And it’s great because with all the colors and weights they have — I may not have to! Maybe my real problem is that I started by using their Pashmina a gorgeous blend of merino, silk & cashmere. […]
