Quick Projects, Scrubbies and Things

We were visiting my family in Waterford this weekend. I brought a few balls of yarn and my hooks with me. I was supposed to be working on Juno’s Birthday dress but I felt like making a few smaller things that would provide instant gratification! 284 more words

Creative Dabbling....and an Announcement!

Here’s a weird thing…I took two sock projects with me to Peru.  Both very simple, mindless knitting for planes and trains.  Due to travel complications and the fact that Peruvian airlines generally don’t allow knitting needles on flights, I didn’t actually knit on either of these projects much…but they were my only knitting for two whole weeks, (aka, representative of a very large part of my soul).   509 more words
