Knit, Purl, Pray. . . A Book Review

Oh, I have been bad! Well, not bad in the bad sense of the word, but just remiss or missing in action, I guess. Weeks go by and I can’t get a blog post out there! But, it is the Season. (Actually, only one of those candles above should be rose-colored, and the other three, […]

Knitting Because There’s Nothing To Do

Knitting Lace, A Book Review

Knitting Lace, a book review for you! I love lace knitting. What can I say?

THAT […]

The Complete Beginner’s Guide to Knitting – a review for you! Once in a while I think back to those days, a long time ago, when I was just learning how to knit. In the VERY beginning, I think I stuck with practice squares; just going over the knit and purl stitches again and again […]

Kids Knit! Simple Steps To Nifty Projects

Knitting books abound. It seems one or two new ones are published every week.

Because I believe that the best things in life are hand-made. Seems they come straight […]

Yarns For You and a Story Too!

Just a quick post to tell you about some very cute yarn! But, before I get to that, let me tell you this. For my birthday, one of the gifts I received from my daughter, Stephanie, was a little book of indulgences. I’m not talking about the Catholic kind, either, for all you Catholics out […]
