My shop at Etsy finally has stuff in it! Go check it out! Ok, so it’s only three items. I promise there’ll be more. I’ll probably post items in batches, so I’ll try to let you know when I’ve added new things.

I’ve died and gone to knitting heaven!

I got this from my secret pal today! I haven’t a clue who she is, except that she’s in Illinois, but she sent me an awesome gift. Above you’ll note that she included my favorite lip balm (Actually, it’s the only one I use!), some super cute bee socks, a Green and Black organic milk […]

Shelby, my hostess for SP11, is having a contest. She gave us five questions to answer. Here goes: 1. What is the one knitting accessory you could not live without?

I MUST make a blanket similar to this one. I can tell that as soon as I start this, I won’t be able to stop. If I plan just right, it’ll get big enough to keep me warm while I work on it just as it starts getting cold outside… I became a HUGE fan […]

My rough week turned happy on Friday when I got this: and these: The box on top is full of these: Those are the tins I’m using as packaging for my smaller stitch markers. I ordered labels for them last night. Tonight I’ll have to finish designing a logo. Slowly, things seem to be falling […]

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? I’m one of those tree hugging, granola eating types (but I’m not a vegetarian…). I believe that everything should be as natural as possible; so natural fibers are my thing. I love cotton and wool (I love to make […]

I must confess that I have eaten and enjoyed Spam. Ok, now that I have that over with, I can go on with my life. I have also been to and enjoyed the Spam Museum in Austin, Minnesota. If you’re ever on I-35 northbound through southern Minnesota, you should take the time to stop. It’s […]

No, I did not fall off the face of the earth. I’ve just been keeping very busy. I’ve spent the past few days doing everything from the usual cooking meals and cleaning house to trying to get things over at etsy off the ground to painting the stairs. And I’m not there yet. I have […]
