Pictures To Share

This gallery contains 12 photos.

These are pictures of some of my favorite projects I have done over the years.    


Welcome to my new home. I have moved to

In the next few days and weeks you will be seeing changes here while I get used to my new home on the internet. Please patient with me during this time.




Yarn U iPad App

This is a wonderful and information packed app.  The first thing I noticed after opening it on iPad was the large number of yarns available for review.  There are options to sort by name and fiber type. You can also sort by  yarn  weight.  There are links in every yarn description to the stores that carry the yarn or free patterns. There are pictures on every page.  This is an app that will be used  often and for a  long time.



I am making some major design changes here for the next few days. There will be several items either missing or being moved around during this process. Please be patient while I juggle other responsibilities and activities while doing this.

End of Heat Wave

This has been a hot humid summer in my part of the Midwest. Temperatures have been in the 90’s to low 100’s range.  The humidity has made it feel even hotter. It has been miserable. Knitting needles and crochet hooks along with a healthy stash of yarn and projects have remained untouched.  Household tasks such as laundry and dishes have been done in the very early hours of the morning or possibly very late at night.

According to the weather forecast for the next ten days the worst of the heat is over for a while.  This is great news!  For the first time in weeks I will spend some time knitting. It will be a delightful and welcome treat.  There are two slippers that are only a few rows from being completely finished. They will be done today.  I will post pictures later this week.
