The Village

So sorry I haven't posted in awhile.....something funky was going on with my computer. But I am back and I have been  For awhile now I have wanted to take my knitting and crocheting to a whole new level. Making something into more of a fiber art, rather than something you wear. Lately, I have been so inspired by cottages, costal scenes and things that have a rustic charm to them. This is what I have been busy with......

Are you ready?

Introducing my new line of Fiber Art Wall Hangings....this one is called, "The Village"

Here is how it looks hanging on the wall of my kitchen.

It was so fun to create and make. I blended both knitting and crocheting and think it came out nice. All three of the kids commented how much they like it, and sometimes they can be brutally honest. One day I will tell you about the comments attached to my new haircut. But this blog is not about bitterness....

Hope your weekend was filled with laughter and fun....and keeping warm.

Finishing Up Stuff

My goal was to finish up a bunch of projects this month and NOT buy any more yarn. For those knitters out there this is very hard.....but I have been good.  I had started this scarf for my little girl last winter....and found it tucked away at the back of the closet. So what did I do because I am being so good???? I finished it....and made a matching hat. She even wore it to school all week.

The yarn was from Patons called Twister and it knit up really nicely. The simple pattern I made up. If anyone is interested, just let me know and I will post it.
Yes, this is the month of getting down to business.....what is on your needles?
