on my needles

With warmer weather coming, hopefully soon, I decided to start a shawl. I love this purple…it reminds me of purple jewels. I went out with some friends last weekend(we had a great time) and it was much needed and deserved. Being a mom is rewarding and hardwork!

My friend Dee gifted me a small bag of yarns that she wasn’t using. And this ball of purple was one of them. It’s so soft and will keep someone warm when it’s all done.

****¬†Acquanda, you are the winner of the fingerless gloves giveaway! I’ll contact you via email too.**** Thanks to everyone who entered.


I’ve been working on this pretty skinny cowl knit with merino wool(the purple) and a mix of recycled wools with the hot pink. It feels really nice in my hands, luscious wood be a good word to describe it. At first I was going to use the purple alone, but I love working with and mixing colors. I like it a lot and can’t wait to see the finished product. It’s knit with 4 rows of seed stitch and 4 rows of knit stitch. This is the only thing I’ve been knitting …the rest of the photos are crochet.

There’s also a new fluffy kids cowl in the shop. Is she working this pose or what?


Here’s a peek at what’s coming next. I loved loved loved creating this cowl. Now I’m trying to decide what other color combinations I can work with.
