Summer Is Here!!

Yes, summer is here. My kids have been out of school for a week, right now they are all still in bed. We had our last soccer tournament last weekend, so that means scheduled activities are over for the summer. No more driving here and there, instead just relaxing, fun, swimming, playing and reading. My friend thinks I’m crazy for liking summer break, with the kids home, but I do. Not only do I have my kids, but there is usually some of their friends sleeping over every other night (we had 6 the other night).

I have another finished project. My daughters 4th grade teacher is expecting so I crochet a baby blanket. My Daughter picked the color and the pattern.

                  Pattern:Make One For Baby

It was really quick to make, usually I hate following crochet patterns but this one I managed to stick too. I’m making another blanket for a friend right now, and then I want to start this.


Kizkalesi Scarf


Another finished project. I love this scarf. It was a very quick and easy knit.

                     Pattern: Old Shale Scarf from Tiennie Knits

                     Wool:    Kizkalesi from Scouts Swag

Cable Comfort

I have actually been knitting. I have quite a few small projects on the needles, but I have’nt taken many pictures. My camera is on the blink, I dropped it, and now my pics are either too dark or have too much of a glare. I’m looking for a new camera, any suggestions??? Keep in mind it has to be simple to use.

Here are some pictures of some finished work, I love these two items.




The fingerless gloves are such a quick and easy knit

                      Pattern Evangeline Fingerless Mitts from Magknits

Since MagKnits is no longer on line, if you want to see some really beautiful pictures of these mitts go here, she does the most beautiful knitting I have seen. I love her blog.

 The neck warmer I love, I can’t wait to wear it this winter
