I finished little G’s mittens. I strung them together with i-cord instead of a chain of crochet. I find it sturdier and not so stretchy. Besides for some odd reason I love to knit i-cord. You can probably see that the mittens are a darked blue then the rest of the set. I bought the wrong yarn by mistake. I should have bought Bernat’s navy not Red Heart’s navy. It’s not very noticable and the mittens are far enough away from the hat and scarf that I think it’s okay.

Next is little A’s set.


Due to spam and lack of interest I’ve taken the knitting forum down for now. I’ve tried various things to prevent spam, but since I’m not some kind of hacker guru I’ve run out of ideas. Anyway I hope to find a solution to the problem soon and have a new and clean forum up by the New Year.


Well I’ve been terribly addicted to WoW and as a result I haven’t been knitting nearly enough or blogging for that matter. I’ve finally finished the blue scarf for little G and I’ve begun the pom poms. I’ve only made 5 out of the 10 (yes I’m a really half empty kind of girl) and I’m ready to tear my hair out. Boring.

The next step is to make a pattern up for the mittens. Make the mittens and i-cord for the dummy strings and I’m done. Of course today I decided that after that I need to make them a pair of slippers too. My knitting work is never done.

I haven’t sent my application in to the guild yet. So it waits along with the many other things on my to do list. This time of year is insanely busy for me.

Any suggestions for what knitting type gifts I should put on my list to Santa? (another thing yet to do – make a list to Santa)?



I finished this a few weeks ago, but I thought it was about time I posted it. The picture isn’t as nice as I had hoped because I had to use the flash which seems to over expose everything. I love the little pom poms on the scarf although I wasn’t too happy about making all ten of them.

Little G’s scarf is well on it way to being done. Then it’s the mittens which I either need to find a pattern for or as usual make my own. I will have to add the whole set as a free pattern when I’m done. I’ve haven’t added a new pattern for awhile. In fact I’ve been feeling a little out of the knitting world lately. I’m off to do some knitting now so that should help solve that problem.


As always I’ve been busy. Potty training is going pretty good, although I would like to see fewer poop accidents – yuck. Little G turned 2 today. I’m in awe of my youngest daugther sometimes. My husband and I keep saying we can’t believe she’s only 2 because she’s so smart. She talks almost as well as a three year and has started figuring out how to put together her older sister’s 24 piece puzzles. Her independence is striking. She insists on doing everything herself. “I do it!” is a common phrase.


Happy 2nd Birthday Gwyneth!

In other news I’ve decided that it’s worth the $35 a year to join my local knitter’s guild. I think it’ll do me good to get out. Plus I’m going to apply at Michael’s for a knitting instructor position – if they have any open right now. I hope to get some pictures of the winter sets I’m working on soon. I’ve been a bit lazy about knitting these days since I got addicted to a new RPG call World of Warcraft (WoW – for us geeks).
