My Dad

Dear Readers,

Recently my dad has been having horrible headaches. Not just regular headaches but debilitating headaches. On April 14 he is going for a ct scan to see what it is. I’m asking for your prayers for my dad Wayne.

Thank you, God Bless,

Starting My Own Yarn Store?

Dear bloggers!

For several years I have been toying with the notion of starting my own yarn and craft store in my area. I’ll confess I don’t have money for such a thing unfortunately. Starting up any business costs a lot of money but especially a craft store! $1000s of dollars! $10,000-$30,000 because of all the expensive inventory and renting a space and decorating that space. It’s just a lot to think about !

So I need your advice! Should I attempt it? I don’t have money like a said but what do you think of a gofundme.com page? Go fund me helps people start up businesses or projects,hospital bills, funerals, anything!

I need help and ideas, advice,anything! So tell me what you think!

What I Made!!! #1

IMG_1270Well here it is another day and another dishcloth…..well facecloth this time lol.

I knitted this just today and it was so quick and easy it should be a crime!!! It took me about 2 1/2 hours? That’s it!

This is yet another gift for my mom for her birthday.

Isnt the little shamrock cute! Perfect for Saint Patrick’s day or a hostess gift for a friend with the luck of the Irish about them.

You can find the pattern to this on my last blog post towards the bottom of the page. Pattern is called small Shamrock cloth.

My next knitting item will be …….you’ll have to wait and see!

The only aspect I didn’t like about this pattern is the circle doesn’t come together straight, it has a little hill at the top and bottom. Maybe someday I’ll figure out that kink.

What I’m Knitting Cont.

IMG_1266Dear Readers,

Well here it is my finished dishcloth and it was so easy it only took me 2 days! 82 rows really isn’t that much when you get your rhythm going.

I have attached a picture but I hope you can make out what it says! I even had a hard time making it out sometimes haha. I made the mistake of using a lighter yarn instead of a darker one which would have made the design just pop! Needless to say I won’t make that mistake again! But we all learn from our mistakes, don’t we?

So here it is and if you want the pattern let me know! And please don’t be shy! Tell me what you think!

P.S. It’s in my bathtub because when your done your suppose to wet it and let it dry flat because the design pops out more…..I hope it works!!!!😄☺️
