This was a productive week! I finished my hat made from Quince & Co. yarn. A simple hat using simple knit and purl rows (inspired by a store bought hat a friend wore over the winter). I finally found a hat that my purple Lion Brand fur pompom worked with! This hat is for me … Continue reading A Productive Week!
A while back I purchased Simplicity 8358 and decided to give it a try. Now, I'm new to following paper patterns and I don't tend to make anything that isn't straight lines (even those are tough for me!).

I have found myself saying "just one more chapter" as my eyes are closing in bed. (Edit-I finished the book last … Continue reading Yarn Along
I finished my first quilt! The quilt top pattern is MSQ Jelly Roll Race #1 and I used Kona Sunrise purchased from MSQ. This was a great project to work on my "I need to figure out how to sew a straight line" problem. I used my fabric guide and kept muttering "don't look at … Continue reading Hodgepodge Quilt
