We have a new granddaughter and she's just precious. Some crochet that was made for her arrival. Here are links to the patterns: Purple crocheted hat, purple crocheted sweater, pink knit sweater and the white hat has no pattern, but the pom was bought at Michael's.
Don't you just love cables? I sure do! I have no idea why either. I've made the Plaits and Pines hat before, so you may have seen it already in my Ravelry projects. That time I held yarn double, but never again for cables. It made things more fidgety and slowed me down a little… Continue reading Another Cabled Hat

I'm home from my recent trip north to visit my sister and her family. We had a nice time making paper craft tags and packaging for my Etsy shop. My sister is VERY good at things like this, so I was very grateful for the help. My ideas flourish in fluffy fibers, while her's do… Continue reading Back home, safe and sound
