I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Lady Jane

This vest was such a fun knit!!!! I really enjoyed it. It was such a unique design and after blocking is such a flattering styled vest. I knit this vest with 100% wool I had in my stash.

The pattern is "Lady Jane" and you can find it on Deby Lake's website. Which by the way, Deby came to town to visit me and was here all last week. It was so good to have her here, to sit and knit and visit with me. I dont' get to see her often because she lives 3 hours away. She really cracked the whip and got me to finish a few WIP's. :)

On the needles I still have my "Flat Feet" socks and only need to finish the foot of the second sock. I am about half done with my beaded wrap that I started quite a while ago. I am off of work recouperating from surgery and managed to get a lot done on it. I only have two more weeks of relaxation so I better get those needles a smokin!!!


Anthro-Inspired Scarflet

I found this little scarflet pattern on Ravelry and thought it was so doggone cute. The name of the pattern is Anthro-Inspired Scarflet. I used size 8 Knit Picks needles and the yarn is di.Ve Autunno, 100% Merino. It sure is soft and looked great with my Pea Coat. It was a quick fix in the midst of all of my large projects.

Flat Feet Socks

I bought this "Flat Feet" panel when I went to Stitches Midwest last year in Chicago. I finally got around to working on these socks. I have to say, I really love the hand dyed colors, they are working up beautifully. What I am not crazy about is the fact the curly yarn

makes my stitches uneven. The label says wash in vinegar and block after finishing so maybe it will straigten out the stitches. I am using my old faithful size 2 Harmony Knit Picks needles on these socks.

Sandy's Socks

These socks are done on size 2 Knit Picks Harmony needles with Sockotta yarn. I have the sweetest little sister and she loved these colors so they went to her.


This is a sampler runner I finished for niece Marie and husband Joe. Joe needed something for his bay window. The pattern is from "I Can't Believe I Am Lace Knitting" by Kay Meadors. I used size 7 needles and Catania 100% cotton yarn by Schachenmayr Nomotta. I really liked the texture and maybe someday I will make one for myself. :)
