Afghan Repair


I was able to repair this afghan for a customer. Her mother knit this beauty almost forty years ago.


First completed project of 2013!


This is kind of cheating but my friend Jen C is a wee irresponsible. This is the third beanie I have knit for her. Same color, same yarn, same everything. Silly lady.

New round of knitting!

This week marks a new season of knitting classes. And boy oh boy do we ever have a full schedule. Monday nights are socks, Tuesday is new knitters, Thursday is reserved for hats, and Saturdays we relax for knitting group. Love it! To celebrate we got a fresh batch of super bulky yarn in. The first photo is of Malabrigo Rasta and the second is Cascade Magnum. Sooooooooo pretty!

This is my new favorite hat pattern. It is from Cascade. Both hats are double stranded with a base yarn that is Cascade Ecological Wool and the second strands are both from my stash. STASH BUSTING! Available for commission, $28.

Small Baktus Cowl

Here is the Super Baktus but smaller. Same pattern, same yarn just scaled WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY back. Also sometimes Mabel the kitty likes the help!

Super Baktus

I knit the Super Baktus in the lace version while on vacation in Los Angeles. You can find the pattern on Ravelry. I used Cascade Ecological Wool in three colors to achieve the color gradiation. It got a little big and is now a cross between a cape and an afghan. It definitely makes a statement!

Bobber Garland


This was my only hand knit Christmas gift and it was given to the beard’s mom. Her and her husband recently purchased a cabin in northern Minnesota and this will go perfectly with their decor.

Christmas Decorations

I entered these three items into the Iowa State Fair Fabric and Threads competition this year. As you can see my cardigan received a pink ribbon! It is always exciting to see your work displayed but even more exciting when there is a ribbon attached!
