Eyelet Hats

Hi, Everybody hope you all had a nice Christmas and are getting ready for a Happy New Year. Its hard to believe another year has passed so quickly. Have you ever thought of how many projects you got done in the pass year and how many you are planning on doing this year ? Think about it sometime.! ! That would be interesting to take a poll sometime. I am working on fingerless gloves and a few different cowls now for the rest of the winter. With another snow storm coming I guess we will all get a lot of Knitting done again. These are my hats I did for Christmas Presents. Now I have a request for a Afghan from my granddaughter because she outgrow her other one. So there is a project to start the new year out and many more to follow I"m sure ! ! Happy New Year nannyjean

Yarn Cupcakes

I haven't blogged for about a month because my Computer has been down off and on. My granddaughter made these cupcakes for our Workshop that we had in October from 9 to 5 with Melissa Leapman. She taught Celtic Cables which was very interesting and enjoyed by all. Some of the ladies got her new book Continuous Cables. She had a lot of sweaters with her cables and she modeled them all.We had a group of 30 plus attending the 2 classes , one in the morning and one in the afternoon . With a light lunch at noon. Everybody had a enjoyable day of knitting and learning and visiting with friends. I also think Melissa had a good time as well especialy when Tammy and the girls had the aution. Fun for all.

Traveling Woman

Its been a while since I blogged but I was under the weather a little bit. I guess it was a bug. Or maybe because of too many picnics over a long weekend.

I finished a helmet liner and a kemo hat. Just trying to caugth up on a lot of unfinished projects. So I can start a few new Patterns I have my eye on .

Just another way to use your left over yarn. Have a nice day

Knit In today

We had our Knit In at Allison's today and sat on her screened in porch which was a real treat. It was so relaxing with the birds flying in for their treats and waiting for her friend to show up a (squirel) who enjoys the treats too and her backyard is full of flowers and her ponds with the water lillies.
Everybody had their present project with them and was working on it while we was all chatting about different ideas to do. And we decided on a Field trip which always is fun. That means we need some more Yarn for our stash.
And then we had our snack which was the best part of the day. Allison always come through with something different and good.
I think we all had a good time because 2 oclock came before we knew it.
Thanks Allison.

Well What can I say enough is enough snow that is. We sure have had our share this year and getting real tired of it. But guess what we are getting another 3-5 inches as if 31 inches is not enough and it is only Feb 14 another 6 weeks until spring. So I guess we will grin and bare it. I had a nice trip yesterday.Ten of us girls from the Guild went to the 6 Annual Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival. Some of the girls took classes while the rest of us shopped.
They sure had a lot of yarn to pick from. They had over 50 booths of yarn ideas and every thing else to go with it. I think we all got our share of yarn for our next projects. I know I did. I got 4 sheins of yarn for 4 new projects . We had nice weather all day until we got about 10 miles from town and it started to snow and blow and they got a couple of inches to blow. But we are home and safe after a long day of fun. Hope everybody had a Happy Valentines Day.

Another one coming!

Will guess what more snow and now high winds coming.. So no school again tomorrow which I am sure suits a lot of the kids until when spring comes and they have to make up the missed days. They didn't get to me to blow my driveway until after 4. I couldn't get my front door open again until they came and removed about 12 inches of snow again. They say we are getting another 5 - 8 inches over night and it is light and will blow easy. I have never seen the snow piled this high since I lived here. Hope the weather brakes tomorrow Had a another good day of knitting to pass the time and work on a few of my baskets projects. I also mixed up some cookies to bake tomorrow . Have a good night !

A good day !

Hope you all had a good day like I did. It was a sunny day so I went to curves . Than I went home and got my Victorian Lace Basket and started to put the border on my shawl. Did about 4 repeats of 16 rows. It is starting to come together. There isn't nothing nicer than a Lace Shawl can't wait until it is done. Hopefully I can take a picture when done and show you. Have a good day

I am back !

The weather was sunny and cool. Had a good day with the girls at KNIT IN at my house .We meet ever Monday from 11 to 2 at somebodies house. We work on our projects and help each other if needed. Of course we check up on the latest news on knitting in Magazines which we all get the different ones. And Of course we have a light lunch with a cup of tea. Just a nice way to spend time with other gals who like to knit and enjoy each others company. Hope everybody also had a great day doing what you enjoy ! !
