Our household has been enjoying soup this fall.  Our favorite is clam chowder.  All three boys love it as much as their father, so I make it often! I do not have a real recipe and each time it is a bit different, but I enjoy the process every time. Here is what I do […]

Did you pull out all the Christmas decorations this weekend? I started but this wreath is about as far as I got! A few years back Starbucks hung these on all of their doors and throughout the store.  I loved them and immediately thought “I could MAKE that!”  So I did. I like this project […]

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 […]
