I need to stop!! Whether it's fabric, yarn, notions, or tools, I am going crazy here. Soon I will not have one more nook or cranny to squirrel things away!

And good food just adds to the fun. Now to get Hubster down here to enjoy with us! Right… Continue reading A Little Sun, A Little Food, A Little Storm, A Little Knitting
It really is a disease. Or a Lays Potato Chip. You can't make just one. So why not just make 2! Since they are for a mother and daughter duo I made them similar but not matching. One has square quilting lines, the other diamonds. Both have the same material except for the zipper… Continue reading More and More Cosmetic Cases
At least, I plan to be at some point today. On the needles is Willow Cowl, and all of its 12 row repeat of *YO, K2TOG*. Yes, 12 rows of it!! But it does create such a lovely pleated cowl that rests so beautifully around the neck. I am using souvenir yarn from our trip… Continue reading I’m Knitting on a Jet Plane
