End of May

Sad to say my husband of 26 years passed away on March 23, 2014. I have been very sadden by this and feel very lost without him. I've been knitting and crocheting to keep me busy. But it's just not the same. Hopefully one day I will not feel such sadness. I don't think I will be posting much on this blog for a while.

Happy Halloween

I found the Deramores website and bought 17 skeins of the Stylecraft yarn...yummy yummy colors... I found the pattern called Greenway by googling it...its a Catherines Wheel pattern..using this pattern to create a fun blanket. 17 different colors ...just my style..yippee the yarn is soooo soft... I'll post a picture soon. Well this didn't last long...I got bored with this blanket and frogged it... Went back to crocheting my wheel bag purses...and also working on a few scarves and Christmas presents. busy busy busy me...

August, September YIKES tomorrow is October

wow I can hardly believe how time is flying... I've been creating so many little things I don't know where to begin. I made two knitted blankets, you can do a search on them on Raverly. My first ever knitted blankets. Called 'Garter Squish by Stephen West. These blankets are made with Large knitting needles an oh are they squishy and nice. This pattern puts a neat I-cord edge on both sides of blanket. I Can hardly wait for winter. They will be toasty warm to cuddle in. My husband and I also went to Idaho...we will never go the way we went again..HWY 95...nothing nothing and more nothing... I've been making an selling my crocheted Wheel bag creations like hot cakes... Then another creation my little coin purses.. Also got an order for another one of my baby bear blankets and completed this... Happy crochet and knitting...
