Happily Knitting into the New Year

So here I sit in the fading light of New Year’s Eve day. It’s been a cold day here in New Jersey, brrrr!  So cold, in fact, that my doggies needed their little sweaters when I took them for their morning walk around the block. As we go the wind seems to get worse and […]

Knitters Beware! Happiness to Follow . . .

Have you been busy? I’ll bet! Being well into December we’ve even passed the Hanukkah mark, which began two days ago. I’m not very familiar with the holiday, but Christmas . . . now that’s another story! For those who don’t participate or don’t know, Christmas at my house is all out! Every corner is […]

Swanky Scarf Christmas Knitting Pattern

Who isn’t busy this month? It’s a good thing too, because the weather (if you want to call it such) has been so HORRIBLE, you don’t notice it when you’re immersed in everything else. Really, just day after day of rain, snow showers, and the occasional snow burst, like we’re getting right now. Where the […]

Knitting Happiness, How Do You Get It?

Funny, how time flies. One minute it’s the Fourth of July and the next Christmas and the end-of-year holidays are right around the corner. Yet, my knitting just goes on. Some days are better than others, of course. You know what I’m talking about. Even now that I don’t “work” full-time outside my home, there […]

Free Knitting Patterns, Or . . .

Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the (yarn) bomb! Well, not really. Have you seen yarn bombing?? You know, what they call graffiti or urban knitting, where street artists cover everything in big cities from statues to bike racks to entire buses. And you could cover those Citi Bikes too, in NYC, […]

Not a Knitting Needle in Sight

There are some things we all love to do. Special things, journeys or adventures we take once in a lifetime, or do yearly or on a regular basis. For us, it’s making our yearly trek to Peddler’s Village in Lahaska PA. We love going there and there’s not a knitting needle in sight! We travel […]

Here Come Those Special Knitting Holidays

October. That most beautiful of months. Mornings are usually cold, followed by afternoons kissed by the sun’s rays, then nights that become crisp and clear again. Well, not every day; but enough to make your thoughts turn to fireplaces, afghans, and cozy corners of your home as you settle down indoors to knit.     Halloween, followed […]

Which Knitting Gift Do YOU Want In Your Stocking?

This is scary. It’s September 30th. A little more than two months to knit gifts for Christmas. Any knitter knows these things take time! Sometimes, weeks and weeks. Sometimes, a weekend. Either way, if you’ve been thinking about which knitting gifts to give family or friends, better stop thinking and start knitting! If you need […]

What Are YOU Knitting for Birthdays and Holidays?

Knitting is one of those hobbies that just keep looking better the more you knit. Actually I think that’s how it is with most things in life; the more you do them, the better they become and the easier they are to do. Once you have the knit and purl stitches mastered, there’s no reason […]
