This arrived on Thursday! It’s a skien of Knit Picks Bare, some Jacquard acid dye in green, a knit picks scarf/shawl pattern and directions for using the dye. I love it! I’ve really been wanting to try knitting lace and I really like this pattern. I might even make an exception to my no dying […]

Spring Felted Bag Exchange Questionaire

Posted by on Apr 25, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Yup, I joined another swap. I was having so much fun with SP10 that I decided to do the Spring Felted Bag Exchange too. Here’s my answers: 1. How long have you been knitting or crochetting? How did you learn? I’ve been knitting for about 5 years. I learned from a friend of a friend […]

Oops… and other news!

My totally awesome secret pal sent me a really nice note and a few patterns and I forgot to mention it! I guess with all the sickness, crying, and stress lately, I just was too overwhelmed to send out a proper thank you. The note was very sweet and the patterns included a mohair wrap, […]

Things I thought I’d never do…

This post is not for the squeamish. Especially the medically squeamish. 1. Let my son cry himself to sleep. Now that he’s handling night time pretty well, we’ll be starting on naptime soon. I’ve tried everything to get him to go down awake without crying. It’s not happening. I’ve been working on it for 4 […]

Hmmmm… And green is my favorite color.

Your Brain is Green Of all the brain types, yours has the most balance. You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver. You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don’t get stuck in bad thinking patterns. You tend to spend a lot of time […]

When it rains, it pours

It’s been a rough week at our house. If you live in the eastern half of the country, then you know that last week was unseasonably cold and wet. We even had some snow here in Kansas on Saturday morning. By Sunday, we were all ready for some sun. And I was looking forward to […]

The sweet smell of…

Posted by on Apr 14, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

The last few days have been rather odiferous (sp?) at our house. …puke. We’ve had the usual amount of spit up. DS has acid reflux that he seems to not be out-growing. We’re spending a fortune on Zantac and I’m doing tons of laundry. He just pukes a lot. The biggest hassel is the smell… […]

There are socks in my future…

No, I’m not psychic. My secret pal sent me an awesome sock knitting kit. Notice that she included Brown Sheep’s Wildfoote sock yarn in Rhapsody, some size 2 DPN, a pattern for ribbed ankle socks, and a retractable measuring tape. I love the pattern – it’s the style of socks I usually wear! I needed […]

Split Personalities

Posted by on Apr 2, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

I’ve entered into a new zone in knitting. When you run out of yarn while working on a project, just buy something else and finish it that way. I currently have a wavy scarf that is 2/3 lavender and 1/3 black. It will eventually be half and half. I’ve jokingly called it the bi-polar scarf, […]

On becoming a vessel…

“If a man makes himself clean from these, he will be a vessel for honour, made holy, ready for the master’s use, ready for every good work.” 2 Timothy 2:21 The truth is, I don’t think we can do the cleaning by ourselves. I think God gives us a hand. We start the the process, […]
