Bought this vintage sock blocker at a local thrift store for next to nothing and knew it would need (at least) one sock made for it. It's enormous. Haha, love it. Sanded, cleaned and applied some Cargen beeswax to add moisture to this dry wood and get some color. Made up a heel of sorts… Continue reading A loooooong stocking
Love this pattern and the poms I found on etsy. I don't have anyone in mind for these just yet, but that's never a problem for long! I also have a few January birthdays to consider.
Just a fun garland on a lazy Sunday. There are no patterns for the bitty clothing, but the undies were a kit from Susan B Anderson - Get it here.
Fresh off the needles! A Plymouth Encore wool hoodie and it's perfectly roomy and warm and best of all - washable. It's finished and fits without a pattern, just some math! 🪡🧵🧶🐑
Been locked up for so long, started knitting for my booze! The pattern is the Wine Bottle Sweater by Karla Lockwood. The hats were made by casting on the neck count and just going from there.

A few petite pumpkins for fall gift giving with one to my October-born middle boy. This adorable and free pattern found here. Great TV watching quick project from stash. I made 8 in a weekend, just couldn't stop. The minis are made with sock wool, then some larger with dk.
After 3 months of she shed projects and terrible heat, today is a stunning day even though I'm stuck working inside. It's nice to have this break, especially from the humidity. I woke up early, planted a boxwood and put mothballs under the she shed, since that's what people do to ward off snakes, mice… Continue reading Back to Knitting!
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.
Cables? YES! The more the merrier. This piece is the hottest thing in my wardrobe these days. It's springy, soft and feels so good on the skin. I was happy to have it a few weeks ago when we had a 9" snowfall. Wore it to fill my bird feeders and walk the dog. I… Continue reading Alcova Scarf
