The iPhoodie. Hoodie for your iPhone. It’s getting to be fall so don’t you think your iPhone deserves to be cozy? (If this looks familiar to you die hard knitters… I have had the pattern on Ravelry for a while now.) I’ve had this pattern on Ravelry for almost 2 years. It’s received 3,000+ “likes” [...]
Or maybe I should title this, how NOT to do it. I loved this pattern by Alan Dart Devilish Dragon. He does look quite intimidating. Not just his scary eyes, but the fact there are over 40 pieces to knit and sew, as well as this dragon standing nearly 18 inches tall. Oiy! But my [...]
Inspired from many many a cable hat, I couldn’t find one I love, especially one knit in the round, so I made my own. Enjoy! mama needs a new hat pattern
If you are like me, you wait until the last possible minute to think of something fun to make for family and friends. I can’t very well start a blanket that will take me a month to knit with just weeks to go before the Holidays. I’ve got to think smaller. Here are 5 [...]
I’ve been knitting again. It’s super therapeutic for me. Watch some cheesy chick flick while knitting. Makes my stress melt away. My best friend Kate and I went to Fort Collins recently to visit The Loopy Ewe and My Sister Knits. The first is yarn heaven as it has aisles and aisles of super yummy, soft, gorgeous [...]
So, it’s no surprise I like to get crafty. Poor hubby wonders how in H-E-double-hockey-sticks he married an 85 year-old woman, masquerading around in that 22 year-old’s body. Here’s a quick run down of the craftiness I’ve partaken (partook? partaked?) in over the years…

Again with the words. Sorry! If you are my Sister-in-law, DON’T LOOK! There, now that she’s gone, I can show you the blanket I designed and crocheted for my soon-to-be niece. I’ll have the pattern available on the blog and on Ravelry.com soon, but here is a sneak peek. For more inspiring photos, check [...]
I’ve been knitting for a while now. I like to knit things that provide instant gratification, so blankets and long scarves are out. Mostly I knit toys for my kids and some just because I felt like knitting Godzilla & Mothra. I normally hang out on Ravelry to search patterns and get ideas, then I [...]
One of the things that I am trying to do is find creative fun ways to reuse or “upcycle” things around my home. I hate to throw things away and I would rather find a creative way to reuse something or make it into something brand new. So today I decided I was going to [...]
I love knitting. It really calms me down when the kids are driving me crazy or I’m stressed out about writing or deadlines. I knit all sorts of things, coffee sleeves, iPhone sweaters, little stuffed animals for the kids. I’ve even knit Godzilla and Mothra.
I try not to touch on politics or things that might be too controversial on this site. Republican, Democrat, Vax, No Vax, Pro Choice, Pro Life, all those topics won’t be shared here. I respect everyone’s view and opinion and love when people share with me their reasonings behind their argument. That all said, in [...]
I have made quite a few of these over the past couple of years. I saw a similar pattern on Ravelry and fell in love, but then changed up how it was constructed. I contacted the original maker of the pattern and asked if she minded if I shared my revisions. She gave the go [...]
