Clear Your Mind & Organize Your Life

October is here, my knitters! And with it comes the THREAT of another hurricane heading to NJ. We’ll see; after all the TV stations love the hype and it’s good for their ratings, most of all! Now that the leaves will start to turn and slowly fall off the trees, aren’t there days when you […]

Mother Bear Project, Knitting For Love

There is nothing like a Mother Bear Project, Knitting For Love. Just a quick post today, Friday the 13th, to let you in on an extraordinary knitting secret; knitting for those in need is the best knitting of all! With all of the talk about Valentine’s Day, I am reminded of all of the blessings […]

Be Thankful for Your Knitting

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been trying to get my house in order. You know, finding a place for everything, organizing my junk, and throwing out what’s no longer needed. This includes my knitting, too. Once my stash gets too overcrowded in the large armoire I keep it in, and starts gushing out […]

Today’s Crazy Knitting Terms

Have you been to your local LYS lately? I used to have (and probably still do, somewhere) a magnetic sign for my car that read, “K2tog.”  Just one of those enigmatic knitting symbols that we see in pattern books all the time. Almost mysterious to those who have no idea what it means. Those are […]

Knitting Musings For Monday

So here we are at the almost end of January, and we here in New Jersey are awaiting a “doozey” of a snowstorm. Or so all the weather pundits tell us in their morning forecast ramblings. No one dislikes size-able snowfalls more than me; the wind and blowing snow and the fact that you have […]

Kids Knit! Simple Steps To Nifty Projects

Knitting books abound. It seems one or two new ones are published every week. While I enjoy poking through the newest books for adult knitters, it’s also fun to see what authors are writing for future generations of knitters, too. Because I believe that the best things in life are hand-made. Seems they come straight […]

Do Not Read This Unless You Love To Knit!

Today is a rainy day. Pouring down rain as a matter of fact. A very good day for staying inside and knitting. Or cleaning. Or organizing. Or reading. Or watching the football playoffs. In fact, the rain began as a little ice and two people fell on the sidewalks coming out of Mass this morning. […]

Knitting Yarns, Choose Your Story

Life is unique, isn’t it? So many roads to travel, so many decisions to make, so many moments that are far from ordinary every day! Yes, life can seem boring and so-so on a daily basis; after all, we all do the same things day in and day out, yet there are always those “special” […]

Walking Through the Inn at Night

Ten years ago, before I started a website, or knew what blogging was all about, I was an innkeeper. My husband Bob and I bought a beautiful 10-room inn in southwestern New Hampshire, an area known as the Monadnock region. I won’t tell you which inn we bought, only that looking back on it, it […]
