Temporary pom pom attachment I recently heard someone say they used a button to temporarily attach pom poms to their hats.  Until I played with attaching the pom pom, I couldn’t quite picture how this would work.  Because of that, I decided to share my process with you.  This process will work for a pom […]

Lost Things – New Pattern Release I love this hat!  Unfortunately, my girls claimed my hat as soon as I mentioned that it reminded me of Tinker Bell.  The adorable fairy collects “lost things” to use for her tinkering (or inventions)!  So the name just had to be Lost Things.   Details The hats knit […]

Another week of minimal knitting My trigger finger did not completely heal with the first cortisone shot, so I received another on Monday.  Although the first one didn’t heal my trigger finger, it did help, so the doctor is hopeful that the second one will work.  Even though I wasn’t able to knit for a […]

Rainbow Dots Cowl I finally finished my Rainbow Dots Cowl!  It definitely took me longer to knit than it should have.  I would pick it up, knit a bit, then put it down for long periods of time.  I really enjoy wearing it with all of the happy colors and am very happy with how […]

Do your knitted swatches ever lie?

New Pattern Progress Let’s just put it out there…I love to knit and design new patterns, but am not so crazy about sitting down to my computer to actually write up the patterns and get them ready for publication.  It is actually quite embarrassing when I look at the date of when I took the […]
