WIP Friday – secret projects

WIP Friday – secret projects

I have nothing finished this week.  It seems like I’ve been hard at work. I’ve been pushing hard to get Little Chick’s “Anna” cape finished.  Miles and miles of stockinette means that I can only work on it for about 30 minutes at a time before I start to go stir-crazy.   I’m currently working on

FO Friday – the beginning of Advent

FO Friday – the beginning of Advent

It’s beginning to look like Christmas in our household! I waited until the last minute (of course) to figure out what to do for an Advent calendar. Last year we used one my mother had picked up that contained 25 different ornaments. This year though with Little Chick getting older, I wanted to make sure

FO Friday – baby washcloths

FO Friday – baby washcloths

I may only have an almost-4-year-old daughter, but most of our friends have children that are much older – and some are empty nesters.  One of those friends has a daughter who was married last fall and is expecting a child just after the new year!  It’s hard to believe because I’ve known Bonnie since

Warm and snuggly Wednesday

Warm and snuggly Wednesday

This past weekend we had a warm-up into the 40ºF temps, which was nice for the guys who went hunting.  Or should I say sitting.  They didn’t see anything at all.  Venison may not be in the forecast this year.  It did make it for nice walking though – a bit foggy and misty, but

Wintry Wednesday

Wintry Wednesday

I had forgotten … in my aging process, I didn’t remember how exciting the first snowfall could be to a child.  Last week our yard looked like this.     Most of the leaves were gone from the trees thanks to several windy days, but oddly enough we hadn’t even seen a trace of snow

FO Friday – more hats

FO Friday – more hats

I tried to swear off KALs/CALs for November.  That lasted all of one day.  I guess it’s a hazard of being a moderator on the KAL Fanatics over on Ravelry; I have to help stay on top of new posts, so I read them all.  I even contemplated joining in the NaKniSweMo (National Knit-a-Sweater-in-a-Month) challenge.  But

Snowflakes in June (free crochet pattern)

Snowflakes in June (free crochet pattern)

Hello – did you know it’s November already?  sigh   I’m not sure how that happened. Back in January I set some specific goals for myself.  One of them was to “design and publish 6+ patterns this year”.  According to my records I’ve done a great job in designing – 12 rough drafts and two more

Halloween update

Halloween update

Halloween didn’t go so well this year.  Apparently almost-four is a bad age.  You’re old enough to be aware of what’s going on and yet young enough to find everything terribly scary.     I really didn’t get any other great pictures on Friday night.  She decided at the last minute not the cooperate with

FO Friday – Ariel the mermaid

FO Friday – Ariel the mermaid

The big day is here … time for the Halloween costume reveal! As I mentioned, our daughter decided she wanted to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid this year.  I’m not surprised that she wanted to be a princess, but happy to report that she won’t be one of the thousands of Queen Elsa’s (Frozen) running

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
