It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Keep Your Ears Warm

A quickie Ear warmer or Cowl for Daniellebunn Died 027

I love knitting from the stash

To bad she wasn’t there to try it on… so I grabbed Erika to modelbunn Died 024Although she took on the task with cheek sucking enthusiasmbunn Died 029 I don’t think she needs to worry about giving up her day job!

I’ve been working ahead for spring and used my colorway “Frogs N Snails” to make these shortiesfrogs 015

And another pair of Silly Stripe Longies In Dark Red, Mushroom & Olive Green

frogs 011

I love using Cascade 220, It always knits up nice & had the side benefit of  using up some stash!

Both are listed to Etsy.

On the needles now I have a pair of Purple, Gray,Navy & Black longies

frogs 022

I spent the afternoon playing in the dye pots & came up with a few new colorways….we’ll see what they look like re-skeined tomorrow.

All in all it was a pretty productive day.

How did you spend yours?


  1. I wish I could knit. My MIL can, and very well, I might add. I tried watching her so I could learn. It sucks. I've left it to those women with PATIENCE!!! ;)

    I never even noticed you had things on Etsy. Very cute! I love the infant sweater. Wish I still had one that little, I'd snatch that right up! ;) But, what the heck is a longie? lol

  2. Watching UK basketball. GO BIG BLUE!

  3. Lovely items Katie! I have been busy sewing and quilting trying to get Christmas gifts done. :)


  4. I love the frogs and snails--that's darling!!

    Do you dye your own? Do you sell yarn colorways as well as the knit up longies? You should. :)


Hey! Thanks for stopping in I love hearing from my bloggy friends!
