Dad’s Scarf

Whew! Finished it just in the nick of time! My parents are set to arrive in about a week and I owed them each a scarf. My mom’s scarf was finished weeks ago but I sort of lost some steam after. When I finally got my focus back, I went looking for the right yarn.Continue reading “Dad’s Scarf”

1st Comfort for Critters Complete

Well, it might be a tad narrow and the pattern certainly is messed up, but hopefully the kitties and puppies won’t mind. I can assure you that it is still very fluffy! So it should be comfortable for them to sleep with. I plan on making a few more and maybe will try the sameContinue reading “1st Comfort for Critters Complete”

Yarn Overflow

We have started the hunt for a toy chest. Not for all the toys in the house ( we have none), but for all the yarn I have started accumulating this year. I have started to take over the cat’s (mostly unused) spot. The hubby was concerned Max (the cat) lost his lookout spot 😂.Continue reading “Yarn Overflow”

Purl One, Knit One

While waiting for yarn to come in for the scarf my dad requested, I decided to start a new project. I found out about a non-profit called Comfort for Critters. People can make small blankets and donate them to specific shelters. These blankets are used as beds for one of the animals at the shelter,Continue reading “Purl One, Knit One”

I know, I know, I’m no influencer. But that’s ok, I am so thankful for all of you who have been reading andContinue reading “100 Followers!”

Momma’s Scarf

I finished my third scarf. My mom had requested one to match her hat, which is a light tan color so I ended finding a yarn that matched ( I hope) but was much finer than I had used before. In the beginning I struggled with several different types of needles and casting on withContinue reading “Momma’s Scarf”

Second Scarf Finished!

I think knitting my second scarf went a lot faster than my first. I also bought new needles that were longer so it would fit better, maybe that had something to do with it? Joining the new yarns ( I had to do it twice) was still a challenge for me. I’m pretty sure IContinue reading “Second Scarf Finished!”

My First Scarf

I am Soo thrilled to show off my very first scarf! I recently took up knitting again after several unsuccessful attempts over the years. It’s a big ol’ heavy and thick scarf that is totally unnecessary for Texas 😂 but I love it all the same and will try to find some uses for it.Continue reading “My First Scarf”

Learning to knit

I’ve learned to knit a few times in my life. The first time when I was young and I wanted to do what my grandmothers were doing. However I got very confused. Apparently one was teaching me to knit and the other to purl 😂. The next time I tried to learn was over aContinue reading “Learning to knit”
