It's learning to look past life's imperfections

Age Of Steam and Brass Revisited

Off the needles and in the mail.

I love the simplicity of this pattern which can be worn as a shawl or, draped in front as a scarf.

  It’s a relatively quick knit and allows colors like this “Nova” from Blissful Knits


become paint on a canvas


Right now it’s somewhere between Indiana and Modesto, California on the way to my niece Kelly.

I hope she finds as much joy in using it as I did in the knitting.



I’m still working on the second Pfeiffer Falls Hood. 

Knitting this many cable repeats has been surprisingly peaceful


As of this morning it measures 45 inches long which, is just a hair over half way….unless the mama decides she would like it longer.

What are you working on today?


  1. They are both very pretty! Lucky recipients!

  2. Gorgeous!! I love the yarns in both projects! I'm working on some socks for hubby from a wool and bamboo blend picked up at the local yarn store! They are a fun pattern but I am dyeing (spinner pun) to spin some sock yarn for the next pair I make! I've been to Modesto btw your post brought back memories.... I grew up in RENO. :)

    1. Whoot! It's nice to find another knitter! I'd love to see your socks. Bamboo makes a nice long lasting weave and nice for the feet. Spinning! I've yet to use my wheel all year but am having fits to get back to it. Reno? I grew up in Tracy Turloc and Orland...small world 8-)

  3. Thanks Debbie, I love knitting for people who will appreciat hand knits.

  4. The colours in the cabel knit are beautiful! I tried to start a crocheted afghan. The instructions are labeled beginner, but I'm lost after the first round! I think I need a novice pattern. Hahaha! Do they even exist?

    1. You can do it! Find a community center or go to your local yarn store. THey can show you how. Very enriching and satisfying to create with string!


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