Kind Yarn for a Sweet Bundle of Joy
I'm so sad to say I couldn't get to my great nephew's baby shower today. I've been down with a virus since before Easter. I made it through Easter Sunday and fell apart the next day with another sore throat, swollen glands and stuffy head. I've rested and g...

This Homebody Needs to Knit Zombody Socks
I've long admired the Desert Vista Dyeworks "Zombie" colorway sock yarn. To be honest, some of the colors were a little too wild for this 62 year old gram. However, when " Just One More Row " podcast hosts, Brittany and Dana of ( Unwind Yarn Company ) hoste...

Today is more snow, snow, SNOW! Sorry, I don't usually use four letter words. I'm home working on the baby sweater. Trying not to drop the sweater in favor of some comfort spinning. I skeined up some Into the Whirled  "As You Wish", a merino and silk blend ...

Home + Body = Homebody A day doesn't go by that I don't pick up my knitting needles and work on a project. It's comforting and relaxing if it's simple stockinette or garter stitch. Lace knitting - not so much. Love the look but sometimes it's more of a chal...

Learning Something New
Still knitting and spinning but recently, I decided to try a new-to-me craft. I'm attending a rug-hooking class. I'm calling it an art because there is some creativity to it, even if you're hooking a piece designed by a professional. I'm learning to shade a...

Today, I'm working on a cardigan for a little guy who's due in May. It's a simple raglan style sweater that I'm knitting in worsted weight O-Wool yarn - 50% organic cotton blended with 50% organic wool in the color "Jade". It looks gray but it's actually a ...
