Blog has changed a little…. :(

Since wordpress changed their formatting and you can no longer use custom CSS unless you want to pay for it, i lost some of my formatting. ūüė¶ I decided would try another theme and come to find i lost my old header so i had to make another one. I don’t think I like it either.

I hope to get some of the yarn i spun over the last year and a half since I learned how.

Its been a loooonnnggg time!!

Well I think I’m back and hope to be creating more dishcloth patterns for the loom and for needles. After a 2 year hiatus I think it’s time. Drop me a line. Let me know how you are doing.

Winter & Knitting

Snow &¬†DrivewayHouse and¬†SnowOkay, I am sick of winter.¬† We have had about 5-5 1/2 feet of snow since Thanksgiving and I am so sick of it.¬† Mind you, the 5 feet isn’t all at once.¬† We probably have about 3 1/2 feet right now.¬† All I can tell you is it is past my knees on my 5’2″ frame.¬†¬† Our driveway does make it fun to go sledding with all the nice powder we have had.¬† This snow makes it so dang hard to feed and water our bunnies though.¬† If I had my way, spring would be here.¬†

Shifting Sands clothWith all this snow it has been good for designing, looming and knitting projects.¬† I have designed a couple new dishcloth patterns and have worked on a 5 cable cloth for the February KAL on Janice’s group Looming Dishcloths Plus.¬† It is called¬† Shifting Sands.¬† I was a little hesitant to try cable, but found they were quite simple once I got the hang of it.¬† My have to try more things with cables.¬† I know I’ll probably try the dishcloth pattern from Creative Knitting in the March 2008 issue.¬† It is an all over cable pattern.

The cloth with the heart on it I designed for the February Loom-A-Long on Ravelry. If you are a member and love to Pieces of my Heart Hummingbird Clothmake dishcloths, please join us. The hummingbird cloth will be up on my Loomy Dishcloth Blog just as soon as I write up the pattern for it. 

house socksI also completed Isela’ Plushy Slipper Sock pattern for the Loom A Long on¬†Ravelry¬†(you can find the pattern at her site http://isela.typepad.com for $1.25).¬† I didn’t loom it in the plushy yarn that she called for.¬† I just used a worsted weight acrylic/wool blend .¬† The pattern is very easy to understand.¬†

Drum Roll Please! And the Winner is….

Kim Gambill is the winner of the Candy Heart contest for the stitch markers. Believe it or not there were 49 little candy hearts in the glass and Kim guessed 47. Congratulations Kim!!! This was fun. I hope to have more for other things to just to keep things lively on my end. Maybe next time I’ll do a couple of skeins of yummy yarn. Stay tuned.

Keep on looming/knitting and have a great day!

What’s Your Temperament?

You Have a Phlegmatic Temperament

Mild mannered and laid back, you take life at a slow pace.
You are very consistent – both in emotions and actions.
You tend to absorb set backs easily. You are cool and collected.

It is difficult to offend you. You can remain composed and unemotional.
You are a great friend and lover. You don’t demand much of others.
While you are quiet, you have a subtle wit that your friends know well.

At your worst, you are lazy and unwilling to work at anything.
You often get stuck in a rut, without aspirations or dreams.
You can get too dependent on others, setting yourself up for abandonment.

That pretty much sums me up most of the time….since joining FLYlady I am slowly changing my CHAOS into peace. I should have my Noni Bag finished today! YEAH!!!! I’ll post before felted and the finished item hopefully later today.
Until later….Keep on Loomin’
