From Jeans to Cut Offs

  If you're anything like me (a hoarder) you have plenty of jeans sitting around that are destined for greater things, or maybe just cutoffs... that works too. Since moving from Washington to Florida this summer I decided it was time to finally transform those jeans I've had for the past 7-8 years....more

Most Adorable DIY Crocheted Nursing Necklace

About a month ago, I received an email from a friend of mine who recently had a baby. She asked if I would be interested in seeing if I could make her a nursing necklace. In case you didn't know (because I had no idea before she emailed me), a nursing necklace is a long, chunky necklace made with wood beads and cotton yarn. (It can be made with plastic or other materials too, but the wooden ones are what my friend wanted.)...more

How to Make a Baby Onesie Quilt

Back in March, I received an email from Heather asking if I would be interested in taking on a commissioned quilt for her son.

There Is No Knitting in Prison

Some days working at the yarn shop just cracks me up.  This weekend, starting today, is the yearly Old Songs Festival at the local fairgrounds.  Every year there are some new customers who discover the shop while attending the festival but also "regulars" who only come to the shop once a year when they come to the festival....more

Crochet Beach Bag

I have only just discovered Blogher. I know! Where have I been? I was brought here in a roundabout route from a Pinterest pin , about blogging for profit. I'm seriously interested in trying to make an online income as no one seems to want to employ me any more. I still have the same qualifications as I had when I was a working person, but now I am older I'm not such am interetsing proposition. ...more

Flowers

Being back at work has been easier than expected emotionally, but so much harder than expected in terms of time.  I spend most of my non-V time getting things ready for the next day, so I've had very little time to knit or blog this month.  So, you get a post about a blanket square.  One sad, solitary blanket square.  The good news?  It's a cute square that was a pleasure to make!...more
