I think he looks cool.....



We all know that I have Gauge issues....but I confess, I like this. He'd never get cold...maybe hung up in a door or something, but never cold!  I can envision a cab speeding down a city street and this dude's scarf trailing behind because it's caught in the door. Who knows, maybe he's a knitter. I think it's cool....hmmm, maybe I need to knit one for myself!  :)

Of course the first thing I did when seeing this was try to figure out the pattern.  I think I'd leave off that long fringe, but only because I am not a fringe type of person. I find it annoying.  Now wouldn't this thing look totally rad if it were all cables....just stop and think about it for a moment...cables running all the way from one end to the next. That should only take me a life time to knit....you know, since I knit at the speed of pain drying...turtles are considered speed demons when they are compared to how fast I knit...just saying!

I am still loving the knitting. I am not sure what happened to my desire to crochet, but it's gone. I don't even think about it anymore....instead if I see something crocheted, I try to figure out how to make it in knitting. Crazy right? I know.  I guess once a hooker, not always a hooker.

Hope you are all having a fabulous day. What projects are you all working on today?

Ok, for all you yarn snobs out there...don't look, but for everyone else....



I confess....I love this ad.  It just kind of makes me smile because I know if I were making that little baby a sweater, I'd want it to be in a yarn that Mom could wash and not worry about.  Aren't these little sweaters adorable!

Hmmm maybe next years challenge for me should be to make myself a sweater?

Ok, I am still knitting my little heart out on the square for March...I also signed up for a KAL for a shawl for March, I have a scarf to finish....a few dishcloths I want to make and a cowl for a friends birthday, too...goodness, there just aren't enough hours in the day!

I am enjoying my knit adventures!

Happy weekend to you all sweet friends.  :)

February Darling square finish



It's not blocked, so it looks kind of bunchy.  It was loads of fun to knit up....it took a while...life was happening a lot...but it knitted and I am already on row 16 of March Pathways.  I can't wait for all the other months to knit up on this KAL afghan!

Blessings to you one and all sweet friends.  :)

Morning has broken....


When I got all the magic that is me up out of bed today, the above is what I saw out of my back door. This picture doesn't really do it justice...the sky was much softer and bluer and the moon was more yellowish....of course there is still a bazillion inches of snow on the ground...but the sky is pretty. :)

I finished the February square....nope, it's not blocked, which explains why you aren't seeing it yet. I really  have to break down and get some blocking boards for my knitting.

I started the March Pathways square.  I am using the Lion Brand Heartland in Everglade....at least I can knit with something green and think of Florida...right?

Hope you all have a fabby weekend.....stay warm and safe and get out there and do something fun!

Rumor has it that Mo and Jo are heading back home....not sure if anyone wants to hear about their antics anymore....just leave a comment if you do.  :)

A snowman built out of sand............


Amen! Amen!  Sing it brother!

Today, we woke up to 18 inches of snow.  It's March people...March!

Several people got stuck out on the Interstates and the National Guard had to come dig them out. What a mess.

No snow plows yet........probably won't see them until Spring!

If you need me,  I can be found sitting next to the air vent....knitting happily away.  :)

SNOW, SLEET, ICE AND RAIN

UNCLE! I cry UNCLE...now stop with the crazy butt weather, thank you very much!

I won't bore you with the details, except to say that the headed of my blog post today was taken off the local weather site....really...it's insult to injury...snow, sleet, ice and then rain...which by the way, they informed all of us that the rain will create sheets of ice on our road ways because we have been so love....we are zero right now...zero people....zero.  Ok, I'll stop for now...but seriously...I am tired of the cold....snow!

Are you sure no one out there has seen Spring anywhere?

I am still working on my scarf...it's going to be a while, it's seventy inches long....yeah, well....it's not like I am going anywhere any time soon...

Wishing you all a most lovely day and a super great weekend, too. Stay warm and safe out there sweet friends.  :)

I have found that it is only when I am surrounded by silence do I find Him.

Ok, I know this is going to sound insane....I can't even believe I am about to type this, but I am setting a craft budget for myself this year.
