FO Friday – more stash busting

FO Friday – more stash busting

  Are you sensing a theme? I couldn’t resist making one more washcloth in that spike stitch pattern. It’s a simple design so it works up quickly but has just enough change to keep me interested. Obviously – since I’ve now made three of them! I think I’ll take a break and do something else

What a difference a day makes

What a difference a day makes

On Saturday we had some wonderful spring weather. Granted it was cool, but the sun was warm and that made it a good day to be outside.     Our flowers have started to bloom. Only these crocuses have appeared but we have sprouts for daffodils and tulips peeking through the ground.     Our

FO Friday – washcloths

FO Friday – washcloths

I’m supposed to be going through my craft supplies, sorting through what I have and weeding out that which I don’t think I’ll ever use. My progress this week? Zip, zilch, nada. Instead, I started organizing the yarn closet – the one stash that isn’t moving downstairs! Despite the fact that I’m organizing the wrong

7am Project – spring

7am Project – spring

Now, if you search for freeform knitting or crochet on the web, you’ll see all sorts of examples – but most of those are too, well, um … messy, in my opinion. They’re considered Art and less

Crunchy Granola Clusters

Crunchy Granola Clusters

A few years ago I posted a Homemade Granola recipe that I had tried to duplicate from watching a Food Network show. Even though it tasted delicious, I considered it a work in progress. Partly because I prefer to have granola clusters – something I can pick up with my hands to munch on. Loose

FO Friday – Knotted Rib Hat

FO Friday – Knotted Rib Hat

Whew. I just managed to complete a project to show off this week. I’m up-to-date on all my past projects so I needed something. Normally a hat takes me a couple of nights to crank out. This one took an amazingly full 9 days. Granted, I didn’t work on it every night but still –

Homemade Yogurt

Homemade Yogurt

  I don’t remember seeing yogurt in our household growing up – until my mother discovered in her 40’s that she was lactose intolerant. Odd thing for a woman that grew up on a dairy farm, but there it is. She had a countertop yogurt maker much like this one.     As a teenager,

One thought on “Welcome

  1. ROSEMARY says:

    Love your hat design and also the cowl. Is there anyway I could get the patterns so I can make them?
    Also I would like it if I could get emails from you on what you are doing. I did not see anywhere to sign up for them.
    thanks,
    Rosie
