Shadow Baby Hat – 15K Downloads!

This is my first pattern design and I couldn’t be more thrilled that it’s become so popular. Normally, I design more from necessity than from my own creativity. But this little gem was special after I learned the beauty of knitted slipped stitches. It’s quite simple and can be adapted to all sizes. And…..the pattern is FREE! Get the pattern HERE.

Photo on the left are the preemie hats I’ve made. Special thanks to Raveler “grantrm” for the adult version she made pictured on the right.


Yarn Stash Organization

We’ve moved! And now I’ve had to reorganize for the space I have. I entered it all into my stash on Ravelry. What a nice feature of the site. I made notes on each entry as to location (bins, closets, totes, etc.) and got it all put away.

So….please don’t tell my husband I have 41 Miles of yarn!


November FO’s

Well, at least I finished a project this month. Two actually. We took a day trip Saturday and I didn’t have to drive so I took along some kitchen cotton and made a little crocheted hot pad. Ravelry link here:  5

I’ve also been experimenting with knitting short rows and put together this scrumptious scarf. I used some mystery yarn I purchased at a show a while back. Pretty sure it’s acrylic. But beautiful!



Felted Table Runner

I loved the Miss Grace design by Skeino from the instant I saw it. I just didn’t want to knit a shawl or wrap as I seldom use those garments. I had this felting wool in my stash which was a door prize at a yarn show and knew it would be perfect! As this is my first felting project, the finished product is far beyond my expectations.

The yarn is Knit One, Crochet Too (Paint Box & Parfait Solids)
