Days are getting shorter, the air is crisp and the leaves are falling.  Oh I love Fall!  It is the perfect time to knit and make all things cozy and warm. 

I have slacked a little in my knitting, but intend to make up for that this week.  Some of the projects that I will be working on include:  new pattern for baby ugg boots, a magic scarf, fingerless gloves, and some little boys hats. 

Pretty soon, I will have to begin making all my Christmas gifts also.  Alot of family members will be recieving hats and scarves this holiday season.  Hopefully down here in Texas it will get cold enough to wear them. 

Happy knitting!

Santa ScarfBaby Candy Cane Hat and Booties

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, with all the Halloween festivities going on at my children’s school and around the house, I just haven’t found the time! 

I was so excited this afternoon though when my husband agreed to go with me to our local Hobby Lobby.  They were having a 99 cent sale on some of their yarn, and I needed some more to complete some projects that I have in mind.

A lot of their Yarn Bee collections were on sale, and I got a lot of Modea yarn on sale for 71 cents!  Boy was I excited!  Now it’s time for me to get busy working on a ton of Christmas knitting projects, although I’ve gotten two done so far as you see above. 

Oh yeah, it’s holiday time!

 

Today is not a knitting loom day. October 11, 2007

I’m telling myself that today I will not knit.  My looms will stay where they are, and I will not knit anything.  I want to devote today to my writing, which I so rarely have time to do.  I have all kinds of ideas for new articles in mind, and I want to get them all written down before they have left my brain again.

All the while there is this little voice beckoning to me, reminding me of all the wonderful new projects I could begin on my fantastic looms.  If you know me, you know that I have been bitten by the bug, and making cute little hats for kids is some what of an obsession right now.  I want to be able to share all of my projects with anyone who is interested, so very soon I will have pictures up of all of them. 

Feel free to comment, criticize, help or give ideas.  I am always open to suggestions! 

 

I’m so excited!

This is my first blog and I am so excited!  I am a mother of three wonderful little boys, who I now get to stay home with.  Reading books is a passion of mine, and I have always enjoyed writing stories and articles.  One day I hope to write and publish a children’s book.  Anything crafty that I can find to do, I will.  I recently started knitting on looms, simply because my hands just don’t seem coordinated enough to knit with needles.  The looms make knitting things really fun and simple, and some of the items I have made have amazed even myself!  I hope to learn how to do more patterns on the looms and even be brave enough to make my own!  Once I do make my own patterns, I hope to be able to share them with all loom knitters and others alike. 

As for the “bookworm” part, that’s my nickname given to me by my husband.  I would be so happy to be locked in a bookstore for a few days!  Give me a book and I will read it, doesn’t matter what type of book it is!  I could probably spend all our money buying books, and part of my downfall is that I read so quickly. 

 Well, I’m off to read to the boys, then put them in bed to get ready for another day of fun.  Happy reading and crafting folks!
