30 Day Knitting Challenge – Day 2

Hi All! It’s Day 2 of the challenge and I’m ready for this one! What is currently on your needles? As you all know, I am not currently knitting anything because of my cubital tunnel syndrome; however here are the projects that I was working on before and will pick up again the second I…

FO’s – Baby Goodness

Hi All! In my last post, I promised to show you what’s been keeping me busy lately. At the beginning of May, I shared a quick sock post with you that showed the baby socks I made for my niece Brittany’s new baby boy, who is due in September. After that, I went into extreme…

FO – Christmas Gifts Revealed

Now that everyone has received their Christmas gifts, I can finally blog about them! I knit for nine of my in-laws…three sisters-in-law, two brothers-in-law, three nieces and one nephew. The sisters-in-law all received cowls and I made hats for everyone else. I love the width of each cowl, as they can be pulled up around the…

FO – Ashley’s Hat and 2015 Year in Review

Hi All and Happy New Year! I’m taking a moment to look back on 2015 and the progress I’ve made. I’ve been a crocheter since I was a child; however really took a long time on projects…mostly baby blankets and lapghans. I started knitting in February of this year and am totally gobsmacked by how…

FO – Xavier’s Hat & Santa

I finally got all the Christmas knits for the in-laws mailed off yesterday…more on that once they receive them 🙂 I also signed up for another secret test for a shawlette that I started yesterday. It’s made up of lace and cables and is extremely interesting. I won’t be able to show the finished product until the pattern…

FO – Kayla’s Hat & Christmas Eve Plans

Christmas knitting is almost complete! Unfortunately, I caught a bug and have been sick since Monday. I was completely unable to knit anything that day. I got a little bit done yesterday and have gotten to the halfway point on my last gift today. It looks like everything will be going out the day after Christmas,…

FO – Danny and Athena’s Hats

I have one more Christmas gift to knit and I am finished for this year 🙂 Yahoo! I just cast on and I think it will be a fairly quick knit. Then it’s off to the post office I go. I’ve already spoken to my SIL’s and they are happy that I thought of them….

FO – Halo’s Hat

Eek! I’m down to two days left and two more cowls to knit! I don’t think I’m going to make it in time to mail by Christmas. Not unless I pay a really hefty fee. You can’t say that I didn’t give it the old college try 🙂 It’s okay though. Lucky for me that…

FO – Charlie’s Hat

Are you getting anxious about your Christmas knitting yet? I know I am! When I advised my SIL’s (sisters in law) I would be making knitted gifts for all of them (9 total) back in October, I thought it was totally doable. Then, my sister passed and I made 9 hats for my sister’s kids/grandkids…

FO – Stacy’s Hat

Wow, it’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog! It’s been a rough couple of months to say the least. I just got back from Indiana from a three week stay, where I worked two weeks (thank goodness for working virtually) and was off for the week of Thanksgiving. I had a great…
