April is Baby Month

Babies are so cuddly, soft and sweet. I love babies and really enjoy crochet and knitting for them.  Having 2 sons, 6 grand kids (one of them a great- grandson), great nieces, great nephews, all those friends kids, and their kids and their kids … I feel like I have a good bit of experience with babies. My youngest is 9 months old and it’s so enjoyable making cute little hats and sweaters for him. And let’s not forget the blankets and toys. There are so many wonderful gifts you can make to welcome a new baby. Continue reading “April is Baby Month”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 5

It’s Week 5 and we are half way through the Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge.  I’m always working on something daily, however, as I have often said, this is the one day out of my very busy week that I choose for myself.  It’s usually an evening of working on a knit or crochet project while I’m watching a program on TV or maybe listening to music.  I share what I’m working on and ask you to join me and talk about what you are also working on tonight.  It can be a project you’ve been working on all week.

Spring 2012 Knit Along, Kate’s Shawl-Week3

We are into week 3 of the Knit Along for Kate’s Shawl and you should be well on your way to completion.  I just love the textured design it creates. It’s a simple pattern repeat to follow; you just need to pay attention because 1 or 2 stitches missed can throw off the entire look. Last week I ended up having to rip out several inches of my work, and that was not pleasant.  It’s not the first time nor will it be the last. That’s what happens when you rush and don’t pay attention. I’m back on track and almost finished. I’m hoping to wear it next week while attending Stitches South.

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 4

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Are you as excited about today as I am?  Like so many of you, I’m a working wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.   Take your pick … I’m all of them!  Life can be very hectic some days and I can’t tell you how nice it is to have this one day a week to spend with others who have the same interest.  I’m constantly working on something.  It could be work related, maybe a gift for a family member or friend … whatever it may be, and there are always several projects underway at one time.  Continue reading “Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 4”

Wednesday Night Stitching Challenge Season 3, Week 3

If I ever needed a break from all things around me, it’s today!  I’ve been running here and there for a week now, but I always have a project bag with.  Today is my day … no one asking me to run them somewhere, I’m not cooking today, just tuning out all that’s around me and I’m going to enjoy the entire afternoon and evening (by myself) knitting.  I’m still working on Kate’s Shawl so I’ll be working on that again tonight.  I’m headed to the Stitches South event in Georgia in a couple of weeks and I hope to have it finished by then.  Today I’ll be listening to some soothing music…you know, that kind that *just takes you away*, loving the beautiful weather, sitting outside on the patio and enjoying my garden and nature.  SO.….. what’s up with everyone else today?
