Okay so i am making a hooded scarf for my "old lady" for Christmas, but I have ran into a pattern snag.

Satin needed for Baby Blanket

I have been making a baby blanket using Baby's First Lion Brand Yarn. It's a chunky yarn made up of 55% Acrylic and 45% Cotton. I chose to do this simple pattern that is more reminiscent of the tried-and-true washcloth pattern that has been used for hundreds of years. The parents like think simple.

Carolina Fiber Festival-Men's Fiber Meet Up and Shameless Promotion

Great News! The Carolina Fiber Festival will be held on May 18-20, 2012 at the State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC. I attended 2 years ago and had a great time. This year they are in the beginning planning to have a Men's Fiber Meet Up at the Festival! I think this was a great idea (I simply mentioned it in a message to the coordinator).

What comes around goes around…and comes back around again

A week or two ago I saw a young woman sporting a beehive hairdo. This woman was maybe in her mid 20’s and it wasn’t any disheveled Winehouse-esque look either. She was quite well dressed and her beehive was well done and perfectly in place.

Cowl for my sister

Just finished a cowl for my sister. Used the pattern Elis (free pattern on Ravelry)...took a few tries to get the indian cross stitch correct, but I am pleased with the results. Here is a pic of it while blocking...looks better draped around the neck. Hope she likes it!
