So much knitting, so few blog posts.

Sheila's shawl........... I LOVE IT and hated to give it away.

Crystal requested a hat for her friend. He's got a headful of dreadlocks so he needed something wide and longish to tuck them all in.

Sammy's beanie

Sammy's beret

Robin's scarf.......... Kitty Kitty wanted to be in the picture.

Dona's Christmas Ornament

Kevin's black beanie - he lost the first one.

Heather's Santa Hat Ornament

Don's Santa Hat ornament

Heather's Sledding Beanie

This was from my Mystery 220 group in Ravelry. It ended up being a Christmas gift for Marsha.

Alberto requested a Santa hat for his 4 month old son.

Thanksgiving Week

I made this black scarf for Kevin - it's 8 feet long and quite comfy.

Next was a blue hat for Don and a black hat for Kevin to go with the scarf that I think he really doesn't want. I'll just have to keep it for myself.

Fleece - $2.99 a yard on Black Friday!! I couldn't pass it up and made these two tie blankies. The purple one is mine and the blue one is David's. They are so warm.

Happy Birthday Kathy!!

Hope you have a wonderful day and these slippers keep your feet cozy!

And yet more beanies...........

Kevin’s friend asked for a black beanie and then I couldn’t stop. I made the orange one on Halloween and then added a stem. The stem has since been removed.

Fall knitting

Meet Turkey Lurkey. His (her) pattern can be found here. What a GREAT way to use scraps.

My LYS was offering a needle felting class and I thought it sounded really interesting so I signed up. She taught us to make a pumpkin. It was so much fun making this with roving and a very very sharp (owie!!!) needle.

Basic beanies

Fall has fallen and I've been asked for three different colored beanies for Kevin's friends. I wonder how many more are in my knitting future.

It's a good thing that basic beanies are one of my favorite things to knit.

Crystal's Snood

Kevin's friend Crystal asked me to knit her a snood. A snood? Thankfully Crystal sent pictures of said snood and between the two of us we designed exactly what she wanted. I think she looks adorable in it.

The pattern can be found here.

These hats have found a home.

Mandy's going through chemo. She posted on Facebook that she was looking forward to her hair growing back because her head was cold. I offered these two beanies that I made that had no home. I told her they weren't very feminine colors but she said that she loves brown. They are at the post office now waiting to go to their new home. I hope her cold head likes them.

Hats for Sailors

These two skeins of yarn will soon be turned into beanies for a couple of our servicemen or women. If you'd like to get involved, please take a look here.

Fall Swap

I love these mittens, they're so cozy. It really is too bad they're not for me but I'm hopeful that my Fall swap recipient likes them. The pattern can be found here.

It was getting dark but how often do you see a full rainbow. We certainly don't see them in Southern California where it almost never rains.

Hot with a touch of humidity and the barest of rain outside.

WIP Wednesday

Wednesday right now means quilt class. I think we learn about bindings, borders, backing, and batting. It's a "B" day!!

Kevin requested a green pig for his friend for her birthday. I am not a good pig maker so I had to come up with something quickly. She got a green alien. The blue one is a friend for my manicurist's daughter.

I am quite pleased as to how this baby sweater turned out. It's a surprise shower gift for a friend.

Panache Shawl

I love this shawl and I'm looking forward to Fall so I can wear it. It's so light and looks thin but it's surprisingly cozy. The pattern can be found here.

WIP Wednesday

The shawl is finished. It needs to be blocked and then I can cross another Christmas gift off my list.


I've wanted to learn to make quilts for a long time. Last week was my first class. My homework was to cut all my squares. Tonight we learn to sew them together.

This penguin is getting ready for winter. He's got his red scarf and he's hoping it's coming soon.

WIP Wednesday

I've always enjoyed seeing "Wordless Wednesday's" but have never contributed to it. I came across "WIP Wednesday's" this morning and loved the idea. Here's my first entry:

It's the beginning of a shawl that's going to be a Christmas present for someone who doesn't read my blog (thankfully).

Berry Picking!!

My son had never been berry picking so I couldn't let another summer go by without him knowing how much fun it was.

He had a GREAT time and he found out that he likes raspberries. Next thought....... what to do with them.
