I made this cute little baby-sized mitten Christmas ornament today. It’s called Smitten, and it’s a FREE PATTERN from Knit Picks. It’s knit on dpn’s with scrap worsted yarn. It’s a real mitten too, so I might just try making a pair for a baby gift.


A Great Homespun Set

Just finished this great cap and cowl set for my friend Renee. Her favorite color is purple. This is the “Ribby Slouch Hat” by Naomi Adams, and the “Thick and Quick Ribbed Cowl,” both free patterns from the Ruby Knits It website. It’s knit with Lion Brand Homespun, and this great purple color is […]

Waby Baby Adult Winter Set

I had a lot of fun making that little Waby Baby Cap, so I decided to expand my pattern to include an adult size and also a matching scarf. I figured this would make a great gift for my friend Katie.

Christmas is Coming, Knit Faster!

The kids’ holiday program was tonight. I bought Halle a new dress to wear

but it was black and white, so not very Christmas-sy,so I decided to knit a

quick red shrug to wear with it. I finished it this morning. It’s knit from

Red Heart […]

Secret Santa Season

We had a Secret Santa gift exchange at work today, and a potluck. It was tons of fun. I drew Haley’s name on the gift exchange. The paper said she likes “something pink and girly.” No, really, it said that. So Erm and I went to the store a couple days ago and I asked […]

Kelmscott is Finished!

Kelmscott actually didn’t take that long to finish, considering the size and complexity of the project. It probably went faster because Buddy was helping. For some reason he really likes to try and stick his head under the yarn bucket while I’m knitting.


Kelmscott in Progress

Finished the back for the Kelmscott, and now I’m working on the front. Knitting with charts is fun.

Baby Cozy

Made this, called a “Baby Cozy” and a cap, for my friend Darcy’s baby, due in December. It’s like a big baby sleeping bag, and I made a little cap to match.

It’s knit from Bernat Baby Blanket, which is a super bulky yarn that feels like chenille and fleece. It’s a pain to knit […]

Preview of Coming Attractions

After 13 years of watching me crochet and knit, Erm has finally requested I make something for him. I’ve got the pattern and the yarn (from my stash) for it ready so I can cast on as soon as I finish my Kelmscott sweater.

Wanna see what Erm has asked for?

Looks like fun…I […]

Happy Morning Things

I’m just sitting here enjoying an early morning cuppa, oolong with honey and milk, after a not-so-terrible shift at work. It’s the little things that can make or break a day, isn’t it?

Also, I’m really loving these stitch markers I made the other day:

They’re just those alphabet beads, left over from […]
