My heart is broken!

My mom lost her fight with cancer on Friday, April 24th.  I need to heal and find my way during the next little bit.  For now, I must pause!

All Done!

Wow, that was a fast knit!  I like it!  The main question is, does he???

Double Delight!

I'm knitting my newest cloth named "Double Delight".  I like the fact that it is knitting a lighter weight cloth.  I (I, mean my husband) really likes using a thinner cloth for dishes.  They seem to dry faster and that is a plus in my kitchen.  Of course, I am always concerned and consider what type cloth my husband needs to clean those dirty little dishes! (smile)

Chocolate Fudge Cupcake!

I can't stop making these.  Each one gets a bit cuter than the next. I am going to make oreos, choc chippers and sugar cookies next.  I have a beautiful antique scalloped plate dish that would look terrific with all these irresistable yarn goodies arranged on it. One thing for sure, they have a lot less calories than their yummy counterpart!

Poof! It's Gone!

Being the perfectionalist that I am, the oopsie started to bug me and so...poof, it's gone!

So far, so good!

As you already know, I am dying to learn how to knit socks.  I decided I needed some practise using dpns first, so, I am knitting a pair of mitts with a thumb gusset.  I am just about 1/3 through the ribbing.  So far, so good! Oh, I did make one small oopsie but, hey nobody's perfect and it's not too noticable.

I'm A Lucky Girl!

Thank you, Karen for being my coffee swap partner.  The cover photo is all the nice goodies Karen sent me.  Her cloth is gorgeous.  Definately a keeper for sure.  I am thrilled with the cotton cascade yarn she sent.  I've never used it but have heard that it is wonderful to work with.  And, pink, my favorite color, how did you know?!  I'm waiting now for the coffee to brew so I can have a cup and enjoy my thoughts of my wonderful swap partner.  Thanks again, Karen.  You are the best!

IPod Touch Sleeve

Wow, I just love the colors of my new IPod Touch Sleeve.  The colors are bright and cheery.  The pattern was easy.  I did my own thing.  I knitted it with my own handcrafted double-pointed needles!  I'm happy and my IPod is, too!
