Happy Labor Day Weekend Everybody!

Speaking of labor I have been working on knitted cowls for the last three weeks. I now have five made all similar in size and color. Why you ask? Let me start from the beginning and I’ll try to make it fast. It all started when I was preparing dinner one evening, cutting   beets and yams into slices for a side dish. I thought they looked pretty together.

Cut slices of beets and yams cook in butter and olive oil. Simmer until soft. I didn't use any seasoning. Cool and serve.

The colors looked awesome and when cooked they became even richer in color. I remembered that I had some left over yarn that looked similar. That’s when I created an easy cowl that I named Side Dish.

Since I used remnants to make the cowl I don't remember the name or brand of yarn. If your interested I'll try my best to find out. Leave a comment.

Now to keep the story going I took my cowl to a friend and showed her what I made. She loved it and is in the middle of changing the flower shop (her work place) into fall colors and told me if I made more of them she could display them. She believes there are customers who would enjoy them. So to finish this story I will be placing my labored work as a consignment in a cute local business named Flower Club. Thanks Rainy.

Sometimes things work in the most silliest of ways. Do you have an inspirational story to share with us? If so please leave a comment I loved to hear it.

Till then Happy Knitting!

Calling All Yarn Crafters. Are you out there? Can You hear Me? Is This Mic On? Testing,Testing

I found this title to be humorous but my Son begged me to not post it, he said it wasn’t a bit funny. I guess that’s where we differ. Love you son but, it’s staying.

Good Afternoon fellow knitter bloggers, I believe I’m ready to venture out and brave the blogging world. I started this page in June of this year but have been afraid to post. Why? you say, because I’m not sure if I got what it takes to keep people logging in to my knitting posts. How do you keep people coming back for more? So I start looking into other posts to see what it takes and I came up with this…Be friendly, Be honest, Be true to yourself, and try not to offend anyone. So why did I want to start this blog? Let me tell ya, I wanted to meet new people who have a need to create yarn art and who enjoy a real challenge. I have little amounts (I can count them on one hand) of people in my life who share the same love for the arts as I do. Of course they do enjoy what I make them and even request items from me but do not want to learn to make them their selves or do not have the time. Now most of us know that if there’s time to sit then there’s time to knit, no excuses needed. So I come to you my potential web friends with knitting and crocheting ideas and problems and with the need to hear other ideas and problem solving advice from you. My goal is to post once a week and hopefully you will feel the need to see what I have going on and I in return would love to hear what’s in your life’s basket.

HAPPY KNITTING FROM MY FAMILY TO YOURS.

The loves of my life.

The loves of my life.
