The Oldies But Goodies...

I wish some of the pattern publishers would reissue some of their patterns that have gone out of print.  Specifically, Annie's Attic.  I love the Barbie furniture patterns and you have to pay an arm and a leg for them on eBay.  I'd love to have them on hand to make furniture for grandkids. 

Below is a photo of a set I made years ago for a charity auction:

For the Scuba Diver

My husband is a scuba diver and I made this cup cozy in the colors of the Nitrox diving flag.  I listed the pattern for sale on my Etsy shop.  Not sure how much demand there is for scuba diving stuff, but the gang at the scuba shop he goes to will love it, I'm sure.

Infant Hat

I worked up this infant hat for a hospital donation.  The colors don't show very well in the photo, but the hat is a pleasant yellow, and the flower pale pink with a yellow center.  I fashioned it like a cloche style hat with the brim turned up on one side.

Pattern Needed For Christening Gown or Outfit

Does anyone know if there is a pattern for such an item to be made with worsted weight yarn?  I would love to make something for our next grandchild.  We don't know yet if it's going to be a boy or girl, so I'm in the process of looking for patterns for both.

If you know of anything - for purchase or for free - please comment and let me know.  Thanks!

Working Towards a Goal

I am about two-thirds of the way through my current on-line psychology class.  I wish I had done this a long time ago.

I'm working toward an associates degree.  I have two grown children and decided to get a degree, for my own personal reasons.  At this point in my life, I have no need of a degree for a resume or any other reason, other than personal satisfaction.

The class is very interesting.  Soon, I'll need to choose a summer course.  It may take me ten years, but I'm going to get that two year degree!  LOL!

All finished!  I like the color combination.

New Baby Blanket

Here's a baby blanket I'm working on - special request.  It's working out nicely and it's in my favorite pattern - the Sweetheart Ripple.  I just love the reversibility and the look of the hearts.  I hope to have it finished this weekend.
