Goodbye Sweet Annie!

My sweet little dog went to live in heaven on 12/10/07. She had fluid in her lungs and was losing weight rapidly. She blessed us with her loving tail wags and kisses for 8 years. We will miss you Sweet Annie :) Love, your mommy!!

Kool-Aid dyed yarn!!

I just started experimenting with Kool-Aid Dying and I LOVE IT!! I can't wait to make more skeins for future projects! I dyed this yarn with Lemon-Lime & Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid with a couple of drops of Green & Red Food Color dyes. Added a bit of vinegar to be sure it set well and VOILA!! YUMMY! I LOVE the colors!! I am making a felted gift basket to give for the Holidays! I will post the finished project soon!

Top Down Cardi

I finished this knit from the top down cardigan a few weeks ago! It is really comfy and I will be ready to wear it in the Fall/Winter! It says it is a summer pattern, but I can't wear sweaters in the summer! Ü

Love Washcloth

I love to make washcloths! I get many free patterns on the internet! Here is a link to my fav free patterns!

Another Pair of Socks

Same method used to make these cute socks :)

Magic Loop Socks

I took a class to learn to make these socks. 2 socks knit at the same time on Addi Turbo 40" circs size 1. LOVE THEM!

Roses are Pink

Here are 3 felted roses I made recently. Using chopsticks for the stems, I added beads with that pink sticky tape and rolled it into the beads! This was a fun project and makes a nice gift!
