Finished Object-Monkey Socks

These socks were a lot of fun to knit. The yarn was a dream to knit with, Madeline Tosh Sock in the Black Velvet colorway. The pattern was really interesting but easy enough to memorize after finishing one repeat of the pattern. So yeah that’s it right?   WRONG! Can anyone tell me what’s wrong … Continue reading

Works In Progress

I haven’t been doing a lot of knitting lately. Life has been happening around here, the nerve! Some knitting stuff did happen though, I finished the Monkey socks by Cookie A!! More on that later. I am still working on Ravine but not as often as I should be. I think it’s partly because I’m … Continue reading

Neptune high socks

These socks were supposed to be a Christmas present for Sarah last year. I didn’t get them done in time and we didn’t even exchange gifts until the middle of February. I completely underestimated the time it would take to make these beauties. Sarah is enviously tall. I shop in the “short” sizes for pants … Continue reading

Camille’s dress

This is my daughter, Camille.  Anyone who knows me knows that I was scared to death to have a daughter, mostly because I was afraid she’d be like me.  I’m not saying I don’t like myself, I do.  However, would I have wanted to be a parent to me? NOT AT ALL!!  Let’s just say … Continue reading

Finished Object-Honeycowl

A long long while back my friend Sarah had a very stress-filled life. She found that her usual methods of busting stress were not working and she was grasping for anything that could help. The truth is everyone’s life is stressful in someway or another and we all have our ways of dealing with it. … Continue reading

On the Needles

I’m a big fan of Glenna C over at Knitting to Stay Sane and when I saw her Ravine pullover in Skien Theory I was in love. It is just beautiful and purple! Now I know you don’t have to make the sweater in the same color as the pattern but this purple just made … Continue reading

Finished Object-Chevron Baby Blanket

Some months ago one of my friends mentioned that some of her friends would be expecting a baby in the fall. She was very excited about this baby and even though I haven’t met these friends of hers I really wanted to make them a baby blanket. There’s something about knowing a baby is on … Continue reading

Stay Tuned

So much has been going on in our lives recently. We moved from Massachusetts to North Carolina in April. So there was the chaos of packing and unpacking. All three of my kids had birthdays, so they are now 6, 3, and 16 months. Caleb was in school and we got into a nice routine … Continue reading


I recently visited Charlotte NC because we are moving there in the very near future. My husband has taken a position in Charlotte and we will be relocating as soon as the house is sold. As part of the big sell to take this job, my husband informed me of the many LYS in the … Continue reading

Knitting Blues

I’m in no man’s land right now. I’ve cast on for a new project, a pair of socks for Sarah (I had to get her measurements so she knows they are coming at some point). I was making something else but had a rather large problem with sizing. I decided to branch out into color … Continue reading
