About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

Santa Came Early!

 I found this tucked in the front door this afternoon.
Thanks Santa!

Off The Needles

It's hard to post anything this time of year.  Sewing for Fun and Sanity is postponed, and all the projects that Ive had ALL YEAR to work on suddenly have just days to be completed.
And so, with that as my excuse for not showing anything lately, I will share this cowl that I made from the Turn Three cowl pattern from the Creating Laura blog.
It uses about 80 yards of Super Bulky yarn and size 15  (24") circular needles.  I didn't have 15's when I made this one…I used the 13's (36")  that I had…and had to cast on 50 stitches instead of the 40 called for due to the length of the cord.  Size-wise it turned out just right….not difficult to pull over the head and didn't mess up my hair or drawn-on facial features.
(I used Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Oklahoma City Green)
The best part of this project was how quickly it knit up…in just about 2 hours from cast on to bind off including weaving in the ends.

That's it for now.  Lots left to get done…..ttyl!

Something from Nothing...

Some windfall branches and twine kept me busy for about 15 minutes on Sunday…….
