Awesome yarn bombing

Friday, May 20th, 2011

I was reading the New York Times times yesterday and came across an interesting article about pretty cool yarn bombing.  I wanted to share this article with everyone.  Very interesting to see how a little yarn can make even the strangest things look great.

Is this Grandma Graffiti or the newest trend of creative expression?

How about your thoughts?

Here are some great photo’s from the Philadelphia Museum of Art, of Rocky Balboa and others as well.

Fashion & Style, a unique way to express yourself.

What will you create?

Helping others in need

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

I just received an email about a local knitting and crochet group from,  Gods Love of Newton.  This wonderful group of woman knit garments to help those who are less fortunate than they are.  Plymouth Yarn Company donated  Encore Worsted to help these ladies help others.p1030600

A little something for Mom

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Mother’s day is just around the corner, and what wonderful day it is to celebrate your Mother, Grandmother and any mother figure that may be in your life.   My husband has been asking me for over a week what do I want for mother’s day?  So for days I wondered what gift could you give to that special woman in your life to show her how much she is loved?  Hugs and kisses form our little ones are truly the best gift ever!   Then it dawned on me, a hand knitted hand bag.  I love handbags and have a great assortment at home.  But the one thing I am missing is a hand knitted handbag for myself.  I always get caught up knitting for everyone else that I never finish any projects for myself.  So I decided that I was going to finally pick a pattern and  knit myself a knitted handbag.   I sent my husband out to the store to pick up all the items I was going to need and told him that was what I  wanted.  Along with a few hours of quiet time, so I may finish my handbag.  I am choosing to do pattern P593.  I love the summer look of this pattern.  If you are interested in finding out how to get this pattern, please click the link to find a yarn shop in your area.

What was your favorite hand knitting project?  Whether it was for yourself, your friend, mother or grandmother.  I would love to know what projects are being made for the special people in your lives :)
