A few months ago, I purchased 55 Christmas Balls to Knit and so far I have completed three of the ball patterns from the book! Yay! These little balls are both challenging and fun! I never thought I would be able to knit a three dimensional object but the pattern and instructions are actually pretty easy … Continue reading having a ball!
Admittedly, I am a new-ish knitter, but I consider myself a little more than a beginner. I learned to knit many (many) years ago and dabbled from time to time, collecting supplies here and there.

The Daily Post Theme: Yarn I can't exactly pass up the Daily Post Theme about YARN, now can I? I have been pretty busy with a few knitting projects.

The Daily Post Theme: Unravel I've been working on a new knitting project and so far I have mixed feelings of my progress. I found a free shawl pattern on Ravelry: Pirate's Cove by Hilary Latimer and thought it looked easy enough for a beginner. The shawl is entirely garter stitch with one section of a … Continue reading pirate’s cove shawl
The month of March was an especially tough one. My little family experienced two losses - one miscarriage and one lost cat. In February, my husband and I learned that we were expecting another baby due in October! It was such surprising news to us since we weren't exactly trying for another baby yet. Baby … Continue reading march: a slight hiatus
