  • Baby Owen

    Hopefully you already follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and/or my Ravelry Group page, because if you do you've already heard the good news. If you don't, well my blog absence might have been all clue you needed to know that yes, I did have my baby boy.  Owen James was born 2 weeks early at a healthy 8 pounds, 1 ounce and 19.5 inches. He has a head full of dark hair just like his brothers did. He's absolutely beautiful and we are all doing great! I'm so thankful for my sweet new boy and my now family of 5! Life...

  • Sweet Lattice for Baby Z

    I wasn't sure if I'd finish in time but Baby Z's blanket is done! Phew! I've knit special blankets for all of my babies before their arrival and I would have felt awful if baby #3 arrived without his first knitted blanket finished. Thankfully it's completed and it looks just beautiful in Blue Sky Alpacas' Worsted Cotton in the Mediterranean colorway.  I can't wait to meet my sweet lil boy and to wrap him up in his new blanket. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *...

  • Manly Mojavé

    I've got to share with you a Mojavé project from a fellow Ravelry member. Check out Lane's version that she made for her boyfriend. Once I saw this, she really got me thinking outside the box. Her project sheds a maculane light on my Mojavé that I didn't think of before. I just love the colors she picked and the edited length that she made. I think it looks so great on her man. He wears it very well, making my Mojavé pattern look uber cool and hip for a man too! I hope this project gets you thinking that maybe this fall,...

  • Knitting Rewards

    My latest pattern, Ripple Effect Fingerless Gloves has been out for nearly a week now and do you know what I've be doing to reward myself for releasing a pattern? Well I've been knitting of course! But the catch is, I've been knitting someone else's pattern. It's a true way to relax with my knitting. There is no designing involved, no note taking, no ripping out, no nothing but just plain knitting and it's been great! I've made a lot of progress on this sweet lil' knit. Hopefully, I'll have my Gramps Cardigan done within the week — it will...
