A friend requested one of these but it was so much fun to make, I made her two. :-)

This pear tree came to live with us last year. He's small but there are four pears on him. YUMMM!!!!

What's my blog without a weekly market bag?

I thought I'd add a charm to it. It's a little green cross but it's too small. I'll use a larger charm next time. I used Bernat Cot'n Corn yarn for the bag - it was really nice to knit with.

I made these for a friend who was asking for some. I improvised on the pattern and I hope she likes them.

Summer Dishcloth Swap Receiving

There is nothing better than getting a box in the mail. You always know something wonderful will be inside. This was no exception. I just got home from work and found a box from my secret dishcloth pal.

Michelle's note made me laugh. She didn't send chocolate because of the heat and it was coming all the way from Ohio so I don't blame her. She sent the perfect substitution. I love Smarties and she filled a cute cosmetic bag with Smarties as well as sending me a giant roll of Smarties. There's nothing happier than a whole giant roll of Smarties.

She also sent the prettiest two dishcloths. One is purple (can't go wrong there) and a really pretty round one in blue/lavender (another great color choice). Peaches N Cream dishcloth yarn in one of my favorite colors (anything purple works for me). The cute cosmetic bag filled with Smarties, jasmine bath gel with a body puff, a refrigerator magnet, and then last but by no means least is two skeins of Bernat Cot n Corn yarn. I saw it the other day, picked it up, and put it down. I was sure that I didn't need to buy any more yarn but it's so soft. I'll be casting on another bag with that and that bag will be for me. I haven't kept any of the bags yet but I love the color of the yarn and the way it feels.

Thanks so much Michelle for every single item and for all the thought you put into my surprise.

My week in knitting

I found this pattern on Ravelry and really liked the way they looked. I'd been holding onto some yarn that my friend Deb spun for me and this is was the perfect project. I modified the fingerless mitt pattern into mittens that would fit me. These are so cozy and although I don't need mittens often during our winters, there are several days that I do wear them.

Oh look, another bag!!!

Christmas in July

My first Christmas gift is finished!! I've never knit fingerless mittens before and made them for my friend Kathy who lives in Oregon (I don't think she reads my blog). They were a lot of fun to make. Hope she likes them.

Summer Dishcloth Exchange

I made these for my Secret Dishcloth Swap pal. There's really no clue in the showing of them so here they are.
