Dear Knitting friends. It has been a while since I have gotten to chat with you. I have taken this past year and a half off from blogging, because, well, it was just too much. I started my little blog with the intent of helping others learn to knit, and to share all … Continue reading A simple new beginning.
It has been a while since I have typed to you all. I think I have finally become comfortable with the fact that I have too much going on to try to update here regularly.

My typing fingers have been silent a lot lately. But not because they want to be! July has been an extremely busy month for all of us.

Hands down, the best gift ever is a hand-made gift made with lots and lots of love. Most knitters are well-known for their generosity and willingness to make things for others. (This past Christmas I may or may not of turned myself into a martyr and knit several months straight non stop.) But after all … Continue reading A Knitterly Gift for the Worthy Knitter – Soakbox
It is here at last! Summer! Although we have been experiencing summer weather for about a month now, summer finally made its appearance on the calendar.

Gardening season is in fullswing and every spare minute has been devoted to getting the garden ready and tending it. But now the garden is in daily maintenence mode for a few weeks so that has freed up … Continue reading Finished at last!
I really enjoy Ravelry.com. I am on Ravelry every day, some days in the morning and the afternoon. Ok, so I am addicted to Ravelry. I love Ravelry because of the pattern database, the forums, and my virtual project notebook that helps me keep my knitting and crocheting projects in order. But Ravelry is dedicated … Continue reading Are you Craftsy?
