Another baby on the way!

My cousin Carl and his girlfriend Katie are expecting!  That’s two new baby girls for the family. I finished a small gift of a hat and booties set for the baby last night.  I used a soft and silky Red Heart yarn and the set knit up pretty fast.  I finished both booties in one […]

Adventures with DPN’s and Tie Dye

Double pointed needles, which shall be called henceforth DPN’s, were a frustrating mystery to me.  They seemed clunky and clumsy, and I deliberately tried to avoid using them.  But, I had a few patterns in my pattern binder that called for them and those patterns would mercilessly mock me every time I paged passed them.  […]
