A Mother's Day Contest

So I am a little late to post this but there is still one more day. has some incredible mother's day giveaways started. Go sign up!

More posts later when I get a model. I have been working my way through Itty-Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. Such a great book. I have gifted a few of these hats and they have been a huge hit. I made a rainbow marley hat and bought this t-shirt to go with it. It was the hit of the 1 year olds party. The dad wants the hat also but I have no idea how to size it up to adult.

Okay, pictures later.

Brief Introductions . . .

Right now I envision this blog as my daily diary and motivation. I am a quilter, crafter, sewer, fledgling knitter, mommy to an awesome little boy, wife to an amazing husband, rug maker, archaeologist, home remodeler, awful decorator, environmentalist . . .

I love seeing all the craft blogs and the projects. So much inspiration everywhere. I'm hoping this blog will be my crafty outlet since I am sure my family is sick of hearing all about my projects.

I will open with my very first knit sweater that I just got off the needles. I am so excited to have finished that I had LM (little man) wear it right away. Be kind.

The sweater is from Adorable Knits for Tiny Tots by Zoe Mellor, the Robin Hood Jacket pattern. I had a lot of problems in the beginning deciphering the pattern. The problems were all me, 1) not a good choice for beginner knitters, 2) no idea how to do cables, 3) I had only knit hats before this. I think it turned out really nice. It is knit from Rowan Cork which I love love love but it is discontinued. I am on the hunt for more if anyone wants to trade.
