I am soooooo clever :)

Macy's had their President sale this past weekend and I needed a queen comforter for the guest bedroom. Instead of throwing out the "bag" I consolidated my left over and current stash of yarns. Instead of having them in shopping bags hidden underneath the day bed. Now I did purchase an antique cabinet w glass doors which was salvaged out of an old church.

Basic Pullover Vest first hang up - HELP!

The math is not working out for me which means I'm interpreting something wrongly.

Scrabble Tile Bag

I had some leftover Peruvian Wool roving yarn so I thought I would make something practical. Nothing special, just something for my hands to do. I didn't block it simply because it's going to live in a box and used only once a week.

Retreating from a Blustery Day

I enjoyed our recent break from the typical Wyoming winter. It snowed, and I got the kids out to play in it multiple times in the two whole days of it, but alas all good things must come to an end. And by an end, I mean that the wind has returned and is carrying our snow off to Nebraska or other places further afield.

The Sherpa

I've made this hat before in wool but I someone ask me if I could make one in something other then wool and this recycled silk came to mind. This yarn is really beautiful but really hard to knit with. The Sherpa was the perfect project for it, not much purling, it looks really apropriate and it's really comfortable and cozy.

Circular Knitting Needles

I am interested in buying circular knitting needles, but I've always found they are too short and cut into my palms when I knit. Does anybody have any advice about the best brand to purchase for larger hands? Any help is appreciated.

Just wanted to share some sock I recently finish. I've been trying to knit a little of everything. Here is something new completed for me. Was happy how they turned out. The were supposed to be for me but my partner again loved them so he can seem to keep his hands of my stuff.

Fair Isle Help

I have just started a new fair isle project where I'm changing to two different colours of yarn every three rows. What's happening is that I'm getting little gaps where I change yarn. Is there a way to avoid this?
