About Me

I'm a forty something mother of two girls ages 17 and 11. I enjoy knitting and figuring skating. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 and I'm still "figuring out knitting!"

Sunny Frosted Diamond . . .

I am knitting Frosted Diamonds in a beautiful sunny yellow color.  The yarn is so nice, the drape of this shawl is going to be wonderful.

Woven Teddy Bears! Too Cute . . .

and so easy to make.   I can't wait to make these bears that were shown on Weavezine and the Lionbrand blog.  Here is a link to the article to make the bears and a link to how to weave on a pot holder loom, here.
I'm putting a picture because it is so wonderfully styled.

Another Fun Thing Happened Today

I feel so lucky today!

I am too excited!  The ladies at theYarncraft podcast, here were talking about teaching others to knit and they mentioned a post I made to their group on Ravelry .  I feel so lucky to be mentioned . . . and lucky for the reason . . . teaching a friend to knit.  A while back my friend "M" mentioned to my DH that she was thinking about taking knitting classes.  DH mentioned to her that I'm a knitter and told me she wanted to learn.  I immediately offered to teach her.   She is an amazing person and so fun to be around.  Well, she did come over and we are continuing to see each other for "lessons" on a fairly regular basis.  I feel blessed to have the chance to teach someone the craft.  She is learning quickly and getting more confident in her crafting each time I see her.
