Like most of the northern half of North America, it has been cold, and we had a big (or relatively for the area big) storm in the past two days. It was some work getting out, needing a team effort, and we even got the snow blower out. Even the neighbors dog was very excitedContinue reading “Ice and Snow”
French toast for breakfast… Hearts on my pajamas… Some chocolate… Strawberry hearts… Packing lunch for my family… More chocolate… …Perfect!
Since we are still stuck in the black hole on the socks, (and I hope to be done one by the end of the week, as I want to start the next one on the ski trip this weekend,) we will post what we desire to be knitting here. (You like my royal we? IContinue reading “Wanna be knitting this…”
First, thank you to all who gave me some feedback on my questions. Go here in appreciation! Now, I have finished the pink hat!

I don’t know when I first wanted to learn to knit. I don’t remember when I first asked. IContinue reading “How I Came to Knit…”

I saw this and thought it was hilarious! Hope you don’t have this kind of problem with your knitting!
I have started a club at school for students who want to learn to cross stitch, crochet, and yes, knit. I had been knitting at school to finish presents for people, and my students wanted to learn. They said we should have a club, I should start it, and it should be called Stitches. (DidContinue reading “Spreading the word”
