Columbia-Minerva Infant’s Three Piece Set – Number 744-21









I’ve said it before. I like working with old patterns.

Recently during an organizing attempt to get all my stash and patterns in some sort of order, I came across a page that must have fallen out of a booklet somehow. For the life of […]

Cotton Sleep Mask

Another new year always brings the resolutions to take better care of ourselves. Eat better, exercise, get outdoors more, go for a walk, and just breath the fresh air.

A big part of taking better care of myself, I found was to try to get a better night’s sleep. I would always get to bed […]

2017 – Resolute

The truth is hard to hide or to deny, 2016, was a difficult year. Not just for myself, and for my family, but for so many friends. So I will not hide the happiness to see it go, but look forward with a new resoluteness, to seek out happiness and take better care of our […]

Grandmother Emily’s Knitting Needles

In an effort to resurrect this site, on the day after Mother’s Day 2016, I’d like to post about a gift from my own mother that surprised me beyond means.

My mother was the own who taught me how to knit, and the one who still encourages me to fulfill what has become a life’s […]

Possibles Bags

I came to Florida for a vacation, to get away from quite possibly the coldest dreariest New York winters I can remember. I came to visit my parents, sister, brother, and their families. I came to get time off from my job, to change the everyday routine. I came to get out of boots, gloves, […]

The power of email absolution

I’m turning over a new leaf before the new year rears its ugly head and resolutions begin to pile up like all of my unread emails that have been saved for longer than I would like to admit.

I have granted a Thanksgiving gift and given myself complete and total personal email absolution. Just think, […]

The Return

So….. um, yeah, OK …. I was wrong…. there I said it, I admit it. Wow, what a relief to get that out of my head. Really, these past months of “disconnection” has kind of made me feel like my brain was about to explode.

Let me explain, even though I have not been blogging […]


Ever seem to feel overwhelmed with keeping up with all the ” cyberosity” of knitting that has filled the web? Not that it’s a bad thing in any way at all, but being connected to so many yarn companies e-mails, internet sites, blogs, podcasts, Ravelry, FB & Twitter to seemingly keep up with all that’s […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

May there always be work for your hands to do May your purse always hold a coin or two; May the sun always shine on your windowpane; May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; May the hand of a friend always be near you; May God fill your heart with gladness […]
