Sock it to me and more placemats!

Hello all you knitters out there. This post is long overdue since I have been back from vacation for well over a month now 🙂 I hinted in my last post that I would attempt to knit my first-pair of socks. I am happy to report – success! Not only did I complete both pairs…

Long overdue update. Plus new first-time sock project underway!

Gosh! I just realized today that it’s been well over a month since my last post! This by no way indicates that I have stopped knitting altogether. Quite the contrary! I have been knitting my nights and weekends away. Last time, I had spoken that I had completed my first lace scarf. Since then, I have been…

Success! My first lace scarf is complete!

Whoo hoo! In just two short weeks I started and finished my first lace scarf! This is the very same pattern I attempted over the summer, but failed miserably. I learned that hard way that if you use a “life-line” when working with lace patterns, it will save you from having to frog (undo) all of your…

Springtime Placemats Complete, plus a sneak peak into my next project…

Happy Monday everyone! Today I am feeling good about the progress I made over the weekend. I spring cleaned around the house. Washed blankets, sheets, fluffed pillows, cleaned closets; you name it, we probably did it. Along with all that spring cleaning, I finally put the finishing touches on my Springtime placemats. Yeah! In case…

Success! Green Shawl is done!

Hey everybody! Exciting news (at least for me). After nearly one year and some very slow knitting, I have finally finished my lovely green shawl! Several posts ago, I mentioned that I pulled this project out of deep hibernation and finally put myself to the task of finishing this little green monster. I think I…

Finished another custom order

This is just a quick update folks. Just wanted to share that I completed my fifth custom order this past week. This time the order consisted of two more basic cowls in black. This is ironic twist of fate since I just completed a single custom order that was also a basic black cowl for…

Introducing a “New” Corner

As promised, I am introducing a brand-new corner! Introducing my new “Craft Corner”! I decided during my recent absence from blogging that I should not just limit my blog to posting traditional art only. Creativity comes in many forms and can fill up the space of my days equal to creating any art. During my…

Blogging to be resumed

Today I realized it’s an anniversary of sorts. What anniversary could I possibly be referring to? The anniversary of my last post. Yep, that’s right! Today I am celebrating my absolute laziness and inability to post anything for two months! Yeah! Even though I haven’t posted anything in quite awhile, it doesn’t mean I haven’t…

Continental Knitting Method Rocks!

Okay gang, I am back with a second post since picking up the needles again after more than a year and sorry to report that I am more than slightly frustrated with my attempts at knitting with needles. Suffice to say it has not be going well. I should have started a new project right…

My first knitted blanket

Well, it’s official. I’m a knit-wit. I never considered myself a knitter by any means. I would always try to teach myself to learn, but would find the diagrams in my learning-to-knit books confusing or I would get really aggravated when I dropped a stitch. I would eventually retreat to my safe world of crochet…
