She Sells Sea Shells by the Sea Shore

I am so lucky to have stopped into a lovely local yarn store today. If you ever get a chance to visit the Daytona, FL area make sure to get to “She Sells Yarn” on South Beach Street in Daytona Beach.

It was a great way to spend a little bit of time on a […]

Ladies Fancy Silk Mittens Rule 24

The minute I saw these gloves in the Fall/Winter 2010 Piecework , I knew I was going to try to make them. They just looked so gorgeous and even though I can not fathom where or when I would be able to wear them, it doesn’t matter. I will find a time & place for […]


Well I feel as though I must jump into the fray and post about my experience at Vogue Knitting Live last weekend. It was a veritable fiber frenzy and has taken me a full week to recover from it. Not at all in a bad way, I was just so tired after being emersed and […]

Knitting Yin & Yang

In all things there are opposites. Those things that are diametrically opposed.

There is the yin & yang, right & wrong, black & white, up & down, in & out, male & female, you get the idea.

I recently learned of an interesting drink that I must try, also called Yin & Yang, which mixes […]

Swift less no more

Let it be known that I have not, nor ever will be swift. I could never run very fast nor was I ever quick on the draw or uptake. None the less I am now the happy owner of a beautiful handmade yarn swift. I found this beautiful handmade work of art on etsy.com made […]

I Write Like

I write like J. K. Rowling

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!

Who would have ever thought that? I am definitely going to explore this more deeply as I feel I have neglected my writing capabilities.


Living in the Present

I wanted to kind of mix things up a bit here, and actually post about something recent instead of always trying to catch up on “older” items that I want to share but haven’t had the time.

So, just a quick note about the fun I had last Wednesday night at the Long Island Spinners […]

Vintage Knitting Memories Reborn?

This is yet another got to catch up entry.

Back in November, my guild, LIKCG, had a charity yarn auction that for me was an opportune way to get to add to my stash, without spending too much moola, & at the same time do something good for our guild charities.

Now mind you, I […]

Turn-A-Square Hats

Even though I am trying to keep up to date with this blog thing, my real life just keeps getting in the way.

I never seem to have the time to sit down and write out what I have on my mind’s list of things that I want to share.

So with that said, I […]

Yes Sir, Yes Sir

Three Bags Full!!

Washed, picked, and ready to be carded.

From a fleece I brought home from our last visit to Scotland. I won’t say how long ago, because I know now it is not a good thing to store a dirty fleece. At the time I knew quite a bit less than I do […]
