My husband’s hat and scarf…

Happy Saturday everyone!

I completed my husband’s hat and scarf.  He’s quite pleased with how it turned out and was even willing to model it for me despite his scruffy face.  He’s good like that! 😉


I really enjoy doing small, easy projects in between the larger, more complicated ones.  It gives me the little change of scenery I need to stay motivated.

I found some cotton yarn while tidying up my yarn stash the other day, and I’m still in the small, easy project mode, so I think I’ll make some toner pads!

Happy knitting!

New pattern sneak peek…

Hello there!

Here’s a little sneak peek of the new project I’m working on for PaintBox yarns available over at


I’m using the Aran weight yarn and it’s just wonderful to work with.

The pattern won’t be launching until mid to late August, so I’ll be sharing some more sneaks before then, so stay tuned!

It’s raining here today, so a perfect day to knit!  I hope you get to fit some knitting in today too! 😀


Back Porch Shawl pattern…

Hello everyone!

I’ve completed my second “Back Porch Shawl” and have written the pattern.  This one is much longer than my first so there’s more to wrap around you to keep the chill off.

I used the super soft and cushy Main Street Yarns available over at I used Dark Grey, Tweed Grey and Off White.


AND, it’s now available for FREE here on my website.

Happy knitting!
