Baby blankets done…

Hello there!

So, I managed to complete the 2 baby blankets I was working on, BUT, totally forgot to take pictures of them! UGH! 😦

They were both stroller blankets – about 25″ x 35″ – knit in the garter stitch with an I-cord edge.  You’ll have to trust me when I say, they turned out just darling!

I have since started on a new project.

Here’s a little sneak peek.


I’m using 100% cotton Paintbox yarns in a slate grey and off white.  The vertical stripes are created using knit and purl stitches with a bunch of slipped stitches in there! It’s a really fun pattern!

So, I’m going to try and finish up a couple of patterns I’m working on and get them up for sale! It’s been quite some time since I’ve written anything new.

So, again my apologies for not sharing photos of the the completed baby blankets!  I promise it won’t happen again! LOL!

Happy knitting!



Another pattern coming soon…

Hello there!

Here’s a sneak peek of a new pattern I’m working on.


It’s going to be an infinity scarf.

I’m using a technique I haven’t used before, but learned about a while ago.  It’s super easy and fun!

So stay tuned.  It should be done soon!

Oh, and I’ve published my Hudson Bay Cup Cozy pattern.

You can find it over on, in my Etsy store and over on Craftsy.

Happy knitting!


Something new…

Hello there!

Well I’ve been commissioned to create something I haven’t made before – a messy bun hat!

Here’s a picture of the nearly finished piece.


I was given a photo and asked if I could make it, and I said “Sure! I can try!” It’s not exactly the same as the photo I was shown, but I’m liking how it’s turning out!

Hopefully the client will like it too! 😉  I’m making it with super soft Caron yarn.

Happy knitting!


It’s arrived…

My yarn has arrived from PaintBox YarnYay! 😀

I chose to work with their DK yarn for the pattern I’m creating for them.  It’s SO soft and so easy to work with.

Here’s a little sneak peek.

“Princess Kelly” gloves…

Good afternoon everyone!

It’s a HOT one here today so a great day to stay indoors in the air conditioning and knit!!

I’ve started knitting these lovely gloves – I call them the “Princess Kelly” gloves, and will be writing the pattern for them too.  I adore the frilly cuff on them!

I’m creating them using an ultra soft nylon and acrylic blend DK yarn from Cascade I purchased from

They’re going to be fingerless gloves, so perfect for the chilly days ahead.  I know it doesn’t seem like the chilly days will ever return with all the hot weather we’ve been having, but I have faith it’s coming soon! LOL!!

Stay tuned.  I hope to have the pattern complete soon!

Happy knitting!


1 is never enough…

It never fails when I start a new project, I say I will finish it before starting another.

BUT, it never, ever happens!! LOL!!

I have so many projects I want to create I always end up starting at least 2 others (providing I have the needles available!) by the time I’m halfway done the first one.

This is what I have on  the go right now…


2 hats, 1 pair of gloves and of course, the bath mat for the upstairs bathroom.

I should have at least 1 of these projects done by the end of today! But guess what that means?  I’ll have a set of free needles to start ANOTHER project!! 😀

Happy knitting!



Coming along…

Hello there!

So the hat my girlfriend asked me to knit for her is done!


And her infinity scarf is half way done!


The hat was double knit using a parchment coloured DK yarn and I added a cream coloured pom-pom.  So wanting to make the infinity scarf co-ordinate with the hat, I used the same yarn colours, adding a band of cream to the parchment scarf, and used the same stitch on both (garter stitch).

My girlfriend requested the infinity scarf be wide and it is, measuring 1o”! It’s going to be one big, cozy scarf! I’ll post more photos when I’m done!

If you would like to knit your own hat while waiting for me to finish the scarf, you can find the pattern here.  It’s really super easy and you’ll be done in no time!

Happy knitting!


Cushion covers…

Hello everyone!

Well, I’m almost done knitting my first cushion cover and I’m loving how it’s turning out!  I’m using the classic basket weave pattern.



I’m hoping to have it all done by tomorrow so stay tuned.  I’ll post the finished product AND my pattern!

Happy knitting!
