I'm still here

1) What was I doing 10 years ago?
10 years ago my oldest was one. I was chasing him all over the place and having a lot of fun with that. When my husband would go out of town it was just Zak and I. He was my little man. Hes 11 now and looking forward to middle school. He is a fascinating person who looks at things differently than most people. We had a disussion the other day and he said," You know Mom, I'm a glass half full kind of guy." I had never thought about it but he is and I'm glad:-)

2) What are 5 things on my to-do list for today (not in any particular order):

Dust,work for my 3rd graders teacher,drop off and pick up my fil car,try to finish my shawl,pick up my kids



3) Snacks I enjoy:

Chocolate,almonds, dried fruit,cereal,pretzles





4) Things I would do if I were a billionaire:

help my family, help my husband's family, give the rest to the Baha'i Faith:-)




5) Places I have lived:

In order :North Carolina(Ft Bragg my Dad was drafted in the Vietnam War), Detroit(inner city), Indianapolis, Ft Wayne, South Bend

7) 6 people I wanna know more about:

Anyone who wants to play!!!!! please leave me a comment so I can come see your answers!!!I promise to try to post pics Monday. I've been knitting and spinning like a fiend lately!

I'm back!!!


I got a new camera for my fortieth birthday:-) So I'm trying it out. Excuse the sheepy pajama pics!






yay!! I finished Tangled yoke. It still needs to be blocked but this is going to get worn! It fits beautifully. I really loved knitting it. I'm on a serious Starmore kick right now too. I'm setting about collecting the books. I really want to get In the Hebrides and Pacific Coast Highway someday. I have no delusions of getting Scottish Collection;-) My newest purchase is Stillwater. I'm working on Rosarie right now which is only available as a kit from VY. I have collected the yarns and pattern for Mara which is my next up. Then I want to do Grapevine or some other textured pattern from Stillwater. The textured patterns in Stillwater have such delicacy and refinement!

shh, I'm ignoring my blog

I'm pretending like it's not here! I'm just really busy and trying to sort things out. Hmpf! I should be getting on Ravelry by next week. How will I deal with that!?! I'm knitting lots because it is easy to carry and not at all spinning because I don't get a long enough period of quiet time to do that. Maybe next month!

Tiny Tim Personalized
















This is a poor picture of a lovely shawl. My friend Vicki of Simple Knits created the pattern and it is for sale on her website. I love this leaf pattern it is very open and rounded. I plan on doing this one again. Maybe in silk with beads.






Right now I'm ready to cast on for the Tangled Yoke cardigan. I'm treating myself because I finished socks for my uncle in two weeks- socks on 0 dps- 80 stitch socks! This is a personal record!

I made said socks because I had asked my uncle to paint a berry motif on my Tiny Tim and I knew I would see him this weekend and I knew he'd have it done.


Thank you all for the good wishes. I have decided to stop feeling sorry and make lemonade. We have great help and he wants to do well. I really can't ask for more!

So many lovelies!

I have so many lovelies to show you but haven't found two minutes to rub together!!! This weekend is Michigan Fiber Fest so I won't be finding any until next week. The kids started school Weds. so it has been crazy hectic and stressful to the max! I looked at pictures of me last year before May and I look at least 5 years younger. We are on a long difficult ride but we are on it as a family:-) Think of us. You don't think mental illness strikes children so young but it does.
Happier knittier stuff- I finished Vicki of Simple Knits and my bud's Cascading Leaf lace shawl and it was so wonderful. I loved it. I used some gorgeous fall colored Fleece Artist merino. I love this shawl and plan to use my Fleece Artist Silk at a later date.
I'm so close to finishing the Puffed Sleeve Cardi from Stephanie Japel's fitted knits it is insane! I love this and made a few simple mods but it was a great fun knit.
I ordered some light blue silky wool to do the Tangled yoke cardi from IK and hopefully next week it will come and I can cast on for that. I put Katherine Hepburn cardi on hold and Mina's little fair isle cardi on hold until the whirl wind slows down but both will be done by the new year!
I am so looking forward to michigan Fiber Fest. I promise to post with pics next week. I know but I mean it really!!!

Yay!!!! I'm so happy! I figured out how to use pictures on the computer that I use most. The other computer was not allowing me to post pics lately! Humpf!!


I have to appologize to my secret pal! I ate the chocolate she gave me and I forgot to take a picture of Evelyn Clark's Butterfly Garden Shawl pattern. I love eveyln Clark!! I have put into use many of the things she sent to me already! This was part of my packed box of goodies! So much thought put into it. I love every
bit of it!




Now this is a picture of my Elizabeth Cardi on me Elizabeth! I love Rowan patterns. Everytime I make one it fits beautifully(except of the time I subbed an inappropriate yarn-of course it fit beautifully before I washed it!).










This is a Charlotte made out of my Friend Liz's handspun she gifted me!


This is my latest handspun out of her roving. She has an Etsy shop called Chocolate Princess. Nayy just a happy customer and friend!

Too Busy

I'm sorry I didn't post pics. This week wound up to be too busy. My Secret Pal sent me the most wonderful box. I'm happy to say the chocolate is all gone so the pictures of that won't tempt you at all. I already would the beautiful lace yarn too! I will take pictures next week. It should be a quieter week. I had to take kids to the doctors ,dentists and camp all week. One had poison ivy the other an ear infection. Poor guys!
