A Show of Hats

Yesterday I broke the news that I am going to be one of the sponsors at the next Mommy Time Facebook Party. If you have never been to a Mommy Time Facebook Party, you are in for a treat!   Here's the scoop, from Tabitha herself:   In May 2012, Tabitha Philen of Meet Penny decided to […]

Mother- Daughter Belles

I just finished a really fun project a few days ago. It was a Mother- Daughter set of Belle hats. They were so sweet!     A friend of mine wanted a Belle for herself and one for each of her young daughters. I love crocheting custom items for friends, so I jumped at the […]

Mermaid Shells

At one time, I didn't wear scarves. Sure, I wore a winter scarf with my coat, but not a fashionable, wear-with-an-outfit sort of scarf.   About a year ago, I crocheted myself a scarf and fell in love with it. It's blue, green, and orange. It's about 90 inches of merino/silk heaven!   I get […]

My Newest Pattern~ Pretty as a Package in Petite Purls!

I have some exciting news! My newest pattern hit the web today!       Pretty as a Package is an overstated crocheted hat that I created for Teeny. Petite Purls was kind enough to include it as their one crochet pattern in this issue! And I'm in some good company. There are some seiously […]


  Belle is a sweet crocheted cloche with a big three-tiered flower. This hat reminds me of a cloche you would find in the wardrobe of the ultimate southern belle. My girlies are totally in love with Belle!     The entire hat is worked in a variation of popcorn stitch. The variation gives the […]

Skew Knee Socks

My daughter's knitted birthday gift this year was a pair of Skew knee socks. I mentioned in my last post that for tackling this project I am either brave or insane. I think the answer is: a little of both! I used the same Deborah Norville Serenity sock yarn that I used for my Skews; […]


For my second pair of socks, I decided to be brave. I decided that I just had to knit the new and inventive Skew. (on Ravelry)Folks on Ravelry had said it would likely be better to be an accomplished sock knitter before attempting Skew, but I'm rather a rebel. Knitting does not scare me. It's […]

New Venture

If you are around the knitting blogosphere much, you have likely hear of the Ravelympics. Much like the knitting olympics, the Ravelympics take place during the Olympics. The intention is to challenge yourself in your knitting or crocheting during the 2 1/2 weeks of the Olympics. I decided that this time my challenge would be […]

The Christmas Knitting

I told myself that this year I was not going to knit Christmas gifts for everyone on my list. Instead, I would try to shop and save my knitting time for my hubby and children, as well as items to list in my shop. As Thanksgiving approached, I could feel the knitting bug coming on. […]

Two Liesls

Since I finished my last pattern, I have been doing lots of knitting catch-up. All those projects that have been chillin' out in the bottom of my knitting bag have come back to the top. I have done a lot of knitting and a lot of finishing work, but not a lot of picture taking […]
