I so want to make this sweater, but I think it will have to wait a few months. Baby != Cheep. I just spent a whopping $500 on stuff we needed for WingNut. I about had a heart attack. I knew it would cost a lot of money but spending that much at one time [...]
All over the knitting blogs I have been hearing everyone rave about Elizabeth Zimmermann, so I finally broke down and bought one of her books. I must say I now know why everyone raves about her. Instead of just giving you a pattern she goes through how and why she does certain things. I love [...]
The other day my niece and my brother-in-law were over, and to my surprise my brother-in-law asked if I could teach him how to knit. I was a little shocked. Probably because my husband is completely against men knitting. He told me a long time ago that I could not teach his brother how to [...]

Another person I know is having a baby in a month. Since I just found out I don’t have enough time to make a blanket. I decided to make some bunnies out of leftover yarn. They turned out really cute. I got the pattern from this website.
Well, I have finished another baby blanket! I don’t think I will be doing anymore soon. All the pregnant people I know have now had there babies This blanket turned out really good. I hated it all the way till I put the border on it. It is amazing how adding a small feature like [...]
