My Mom is sort of a cocky knitter sometimes. Now don't get me wrong...I LoVe, love love love love love love LOVE! her beyond doggie words. In fact, she is rarely out of my reach, let alone out of my sight. (I really really really LOVE her!) In spite of... Continue reading

I love handmade Christmas decorations! I still have some that my children made in grade school....their children's art work has been added to the mix. (My son's cub scout pretzel reindeer ornament got eaten by mice years ago; I still miss it.) Does anyone remember a few years ago, Garnet... Continue reading

The new issue of pompom came this week.....and it's a honey. If it wasn't for Christmas knitting, there are two hats and some fingerless mitts that would be on-the-needles right now. As it is, I have a couple things dog-eared from earlier issues as well. I'm at the point in... Continue reading

Why 10? JayBob (one of my grands) and I spent last night doing the 'snow dance' and praying to the polar vortex gods. We took our job seriously, and guess what? It worked! It was a REAL snow (for us)...almost (but not quite) boot-covering snow. Beautiful. I can't ever remember... Continue reading

I met Miss Babs this weekend. Yes. That Miss Babs! I think she might have been glad she met me, too. I'm dreaming of this, and this, and maybe making another pair of these---in cashmere this time! I can't begin to tell you the wooly wonderfulness of it all. The... Continue reading

i have a bunch of grands that are like that.....with a mom, dad, and grandpa thrown in for good measure....within 6 weeks we celebrate 7 birthdays. It's hard to make each one special (grandpa doesn't really care!!!) the vintage socks. It's one of my favorite acrylic yarns.....great color, too.

You are stepping on MY holiday, oh you consumer-driven big-box-stores...the names of which will never darken the pages of this blog. Not only have you been inching up with earlier and earlier opening hours, but you've now encroached on what was the one 'non-consumer/pro-family-and-friends' holiday of the entire year by...

The boring Christmas knitting continues with another pair of dorm socks/sleep socks on the needles. The good thing is....they go really really really fast, and I can read while I knit them. The first pair went so fast that they were finished before my last Agatha Christie (The Mysterious Affair... Continue reading

most of my favorite charities! (I've probably knit more scarves for them than hats, though)....last year I knit about 100 of those promotional mini-hats! That was fun, but I definitely burned out with them!!!

Every year Macy's Department Store in NYC sponsors a lip dub contest for schools---elementary through university...the winning school gets a $25,000 check. There are some criteria....there can be no editing, it can only run so long, the same version of the same song must be used. My daughter's and grandsons'... Continue reading

A few weeks ago my quilting friend, Rose, asked if I would join in a blog hop...answer a few questions, and pass the 'hop' along. I had participated in something similar in the summer, but these questions were slightly different; I could post anytime up to the beginning of November.... Continue reading

I'm finding some charts (pinterest is an amazing source!) but i'm 'winging' some, too, and charting some myself. I'm with you.....I'm sure I WILL block mine...I'm grabbing too many different weights yarn and I'm going to need to even it out a bit. Don't know where Rob gets her free-spirit-knitting from.....not ME!

My daughter made a favorite things cowl last year. She whipped this thing up in no time flat....while mine lingered (and lingered). I think hers turned out great; what you can't see is how extremely wonky the fair isle is. I think it would block out, but her knitting motto... Continue reading
