My Mom’s Cup

After several failed attempts with a pinterest suggestion, I finally achieved success. There are thousands and thousands of posts of using a Sharpie to decorate cups and plates. I tried 4 times, none of them worked!!  What’s the problem!?!? I saw a post pass by suggesting oil based Sharpie or other interpretations.  Great, except I […]


TeddyBear Knit Along–Week 5

This week we knit our last pieces – the arms.  The directions are similar as with other pieces WITH ONE EXCEPTION. This pattern has a stitch that reads K2tog tbl. This translates to Knit 2 Together Through Back Loop.  When you knit 2 together you typically knit in the front of the stitch. This time […]

While enjoying the Etsy Craft Party a few months ago, there was a discussion about some of the bears and dolls I make. Melissa is one of the participants who is also a friend and  has been in my Knit and Crochet Bible Study classes and other craft projects with me. She asked about doing […]

Current plans estimate replacing the counter tops in a couple of years, but in the meantime, ‘blah’ is the look that will continue. Unless………… When hubby […]


A Christmas Muff

When I was a child (50 some odd years ago) my grandparents didn’t provide gifts for all the grandkids. Instead, each year they made “muffs” and hung them on the tree with each child’s name on it.  Inside each muff was a dollar bill (hey, 50 years ago that was big money to a kid!) […]


It’s All In the Wrist

Fingerless gloves, also known as “Wristlets” are a very fashionable accessory, and can be fun and easy to make. Recently I went for a haircut wearing these: The receptionist like them so well, she requested a pair. Then a friend who often works outside in the cold wanted a pair made in a denser yarn.  […]


Casting On

I learned to knit as a child in 4H. That was a lot of years ago.  Anyway…. I was taught the Long Tail Cast On and honestly believed it to be the only way to cast on until about 5 years ago when I learned the Knit Cast On. I like the Long Tail Cast […]


Get funky with your ipod

I had a small skein of some yarn in my stash I could not find a use for. While attempting to declutter I found a set of earbuds and a lightbulb went on. With a size E hook and this fun yarn I made single crochet stitches around the cord. Here is what I came […]
