I loved how the sock yarn sleeve turned out. For my second try, I picked a yarn with lots of thick and thin weights. Not sure if I’m liking it as much. I’m going to try one more in worsted weight and then post the formula.
I wish I had taken a picture […]
I found a lot of cute patterns on Ravelry, both crochet and knit, but the ones I liked […]
Remember the first prayer pillow I made? Well, the recipient’s sister was baptized last weekend, so I thought she should have one of her very own. Everything came from my stash. My daughter approved the colors and fabric.
I had some more expensive transfer paper on hand and found I didn’t like […]
I can’t believe it’s been over three years since I made my gift bag resolution. Since then I’ve been reusing bags we have been given and making bags when I need them. The only bags I’ve purchased are plain kraft bags. Wow. I impress myself.

This is the one that started it all. The yarn is from my stash. I’m not 100% sure of the brands, […]
