I’m still here

I started my new job! I'm having to drive to do some shadowing for a few weeks, and it's an hour drive (in one direction) so I've been exhausted! One night, I was even too tired to hold my arms up enough to knit! ;) I have been experiencing a little start-itis. I have been casting on and casting on. (I've also been buying more yarn o_o) I bought a great package from the Loopy Ewe, but I tore it open before even thinking about taking pictures of it. I bought some Madelinetosh Vintage, … [Continue reading...]

Book Review: Socks from the Toe Up (Kindle Edition)


I really wanted to start writing book reviews on here. Though, I won't claim to be an expert reviewer. I'm just a girl who really really likes craft books. I thought I'd start with Wendy Johnson's book, Socks from the Toe Up. However, I'm reviewing it through the eyes of having it in the Kindle edition. Just some generic thoughts on craft books via the Kindle: I have downloaded one knitting magazine and this knitting book for my Kindle now, just to test the waters of how I enjoyed craft … [Continue reading...]

I’m a winner!

gift 011

I won a prize from A Prairie Sunrise and her stash buster contest!!  I met Sharon on Twitter, and then started following her blog.  She’s a fantastic crafter – with multitudes of talent.  She’s also a pretty good cook.  If you want good handspun, you should definitely go to her Etsy shop.  Her mini-skins are [...]

New yarn

yarn 002

I haven’t bought any new yarn for a while, other than cotton for washcloths.  Mostly because I was in school, and not knitting. So, what came today?!  A Loopy Ewe order!! I love The Loopy Ewe.  It has a beautiful selection, fast shipping, and an awesome rewards program.  The best, however, is the owner, Sheri.  [...]

Sleep deprivation

I’ve been up since 3:50 AM. I heard my 3 year old’s door open and a voice say “Mommy”.  When I went to see what he needed, he informed me: “Mommy, I am having trouble sleeping, so can we talk about how yo-yos work?” Oh, what keeps us awake at night. For me it is [...]

I’m like a broken record!


We have snow, finally. But not much. Only in Kentucky can we be in a tornado watch one day, and then in white out conditions the next!! I’m still plugging along on my washcloths for Etsy, and also a set of washcloths my friend wanted for a baby girl!! Other than that, I’m not very [...]

Working toward my goal


I so want to open an Etsy shop – not sure what’s stopping me.  I’m done making excuses.  I’m starting with hand knit wash/dish cloths to help build up my stock.  Then I’m moving on to baby hats.

FO: Camp Out Fingerless Mitts


I finished my fingerless mitts, and just in time … because I’m freezing. Camp Out Fingerless Mitts by tante ehm.  Used Malabrigo that I rescued from being previously frogged.  I have no idea the colorway, the ball band was long gone. Notes: I did a three needle bind off at the garter stitch.  I figure [...]

So much freedom!


I have had so much fun the last few days enjoying my new found freedom from studying. I have started a knitting project – the Camp Out Fingerless Mitts. With some Malabrigo I found neglected, frogged from another project, crying out for love and attention. What I love about these mitts are the garter edge [...]
