Last week I posted that I was working on a free Ravelry pattern, Debut. I have finished! I enjoyed making this very much. A great pattern for a new knitter, not complicated but more advanced than straight garter stitch. I liked working with the Red Heart With Love Stripes yarn. I used approximately 1.5 skeins. … Continue reading Debut
First, my First! My First Garment! A simple tank. Is it perfect? Nope! Am I pleased with it? Yup! (This was a project on my Year of Projects) My neck and arm hole binding is far from perfect, but it fits 😉 It totally needs to be worn under a sweater, but since I LOVE … Continue reading Yarn Along and a First!

I happened to have orange and grey flannel in my stash, so I gave the fox … Continue reading Foxes

Along with giving them many of Miss ME's baby things (mattress, high chair, etc), I wanted to make the cutie something. She is honestly a fashionista! … Continue reading Fashionista Quilt
I love my original Moutarde tas project bag so much, I made a second one! My first one (pictured above) was made with Patons Classic Wool and is a sweet size. I use it often when making small crochet and knitting projects (fits well in my work bag). I had trouble picking up stitches (this … Continue reading Moutarde Tas Part Deux
