Awesome Alpaca Mitts

Just finished up these great mitts. I bought this great, super soft alpaca yarn at Ewe Count just after Christmas. It’s Alpaca With a Twist’s “Baby Twist” in a color called Brindle. It’s so scrumptious! I used a free Ravelry pattern called “I’m a Little Bit Cold; I’m a Little Bit Rock & Roll” by […]

Snowbird Hat

I just finished up this great little hat. It’s knit from Malabrigo Worsted Merino, and the color is called “Snowbird.” This yarn is SO wonderful. I love this hat!

I got this in the mail from China the other day:

It’s 1400 yards of fingering-weight yarn, 94% Australian wool & 6% Cashmere. […]


I just finished this great sweater vest. It’s called “Prudence Easy,” and it was another one of the free patterns on the Berroco website. It was SO easy. It’s soft and cuddly and warm. I used the Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted that I bought this summer at Wooly Mammoth in Kearney, Nebraska.

So since […]

Do You Hear What I Hear?

Yep, it’s the sound of sleigh bells, and Christmas is coming!

Okay, I’ve just finished up some Christmas gift knitting, and I’m pretty excited. Nothing like making your own gifts to get a person into the Christmas spirit.

For Erm, I made a hat called “Kap” from the Berroco website. It’s like a newsboy cap […]

Another Week in Review…

I’ve spent most of the week on the landscaping. It’s coming along pretty well I think. I hope some of the plants actually live. Sam asked why I keep taking pictures of all the plants. I told him because it may be the last time we see these plants alive. Some people have a green […]

Happiness Is…


Halle says: “This is Phillie. He’s a girl. When he turns into a moth his name is still Phillie.”

Halle was so excited to find this little fuzzy caterpillar in the backyard. She was so gentle with it. She makes friends everywhere she goes!

Here’s what I’m knitting up now. The pattern is called the “One Row Lace Scarf” and it’s super easy. It’s the same […]

Halfway There…

I’ve got the first mitt done, one to go. The pattern is called “Sleekit Mitts” by Star Rabinowitz. I found it on Ravelry. This is knit from a sock-weight yarn called Regia Galaxy, in Jupiter Sylt color, on size 2 needles.

I Almost Forgot…

On the way home, we stopped in Kearney, Nebraska, just before the bad rainstorms hit. There’s a great little LYS there called The Woolly Mammoth, where I bought these beauties:

Fiamma yarn by di.vé, 100% wool, thick & thin yarn, really soft! I love the bright greens! I got 2 skeins.

This is […]
