Stitching

Fun with Yarn Overs!!

I have been neglecting my knitting lately and I had so much fun working on this 3 color Cashmere Cowl by Loji. I originally chose a deep turquoise for the main color and changed it when I picked it up again. Luckily, I purchased the red when I selected the turquoise. The red will make it pop!! I hope your Monday was wonderful and your week will be filled with creating something special! 

Stitching

Knitting for the homeless!

God has really blessed me in health, career and the love of a family. It’s time to give back to those who are less fortunate. My goal is to knit 10 hats by thanksgiving for the homeless. A friend who services the homeless has asked for assistance in providing warm hats and gloves for those in need. I started the first hat on Monday and I am finished and on my second hat. I’m off to a good start. My Daughter Lauren has agreed to help me.

Chatelaine designs, Stitching

My first Chatelaine Design!

I wanted to know what all the fuss was about Chatelaine designs. So, I bought one and then another. As with most of us, we buy patterns and tuck them away in a drawer and never stitch them. Well, this design is quite expensive and I have promised myself that I will complete them both and not buy another unless I so. This is my progress from this weekend. There will be Lots of specialty stitches, beads and sparkle. Off to a good start!!
