Thanks for stopping by my little blog. Its purpose isn't so much to show off my work, it is more of a way for me to catalog the things I've created. I hope you enjoy peeking at my projects while you are here!

A Few Past Projects

Well, to get things started I figured I'd upload some shots of a few of my old projects. Let's see if I can figure this out. This first one is a shawl/lap blanket I knitted for my Grandma Hazel. She passed away almost two years ago, so this project is special to me. She taught me to knit when I was a little girl. I have a picture of her using it and I will treasure it always.

It is a simple pattern, knit 2 rows, pearl 2 rows. It turned out so soft and beautiful. I used Caron Simply Soft Yarn and knitted in some Fun Fur yarn from Lion Brand on both ends.

This next one is a baby blanket I quilted for a friend of mine. The theme was sports.

This next project is also a baby blanket I knitted for another set of friends. The pattern was a little complicated, but it used a seed stitch to make the border of the squares. I used Sugar 'n Cream 100% cotton yarn. I love this yarn and use it for a lot of my projects.

Those are all over two years ago! Here are some more recent ones.

This first one is a scarf I just finished for a friend of mine. She is going through chemo right now (thankfully with great results!) and I wanted to make her a prayer shawl (where you pray for the person as you knit it) but I didn't have time to make a project that large. So I made her a prayer scarf! I used Caron Simply Soft yarn. I crocheted this one using a alternating rows of double crochet and single crochet, with a slant stitch in the double crochet rows.

This next one was a fun one. It's a potholder I made for my Sister-In-Law, Ruthie. It is just a simple single crochet. It has a back that is plain white. It was supposed to turn out square, I'm not sure what happened. I used the Sugar 'n Cream 100% cotton yarn again. Love that yarn for all my kitchen projects!

Ok, that's enough for now! Some cards coming soon!
