Little yellow sweater


The little yellow sweater is made with I Love This Cotton Yarn from Hobby Lobby.
I know 100% cotton yarn does not knit up well in SK unless its in the round. This is true, but its so soft and sweet....the yarn was next to my chair, need I say more.
The pattern is well written and I enjoyed making it. It needs a button.

The purple vest is also a pattern from Suzies Stuff in my Blog roll. I really enjoyed this one except I ran out of yarn. Once again I Love This Yarn. Guess I didn't love the purple enough to buy 2 skeins.. My cotton yarn basket was left next to my chair... so convenient.

My dears may the start of this week just be so wonderful and full of good things for you and all of yours.

The side of our hill is strutting its stuff

Its so pretty here now. Although I should show you the place next to the shed a mountain of wood to be stacked. I am grateful for our wood for next winter.... for winter will come.

The red rose is from Sweet Michael when he was still in High School. The pink from Ky mom. When she visits she landscapes..some it would bother for me it was always a blessing. I have a purple rose I planted this year from Nan. The purple rose has not bloomed yet.

I am on the sleeve of the soft yellow sweater. The pattern is from Suzies Stuff on my blog list. This woman is a wonder she can crank out the most adorable baby patterns she brings a great deal of joy into my life. I do love making baby sweaters and do not need to buy anymore. Go visit her site and join her group on yahoo. Remember what brings you joy and attend to it.

Crocheted Cupcake Sweater and Hat

You know I went to so much trouble to create the cupcake app and hat to match the JP cupcake button. Low and behold it barely shows up.

Links to cupcake app. and sweater and hat in in a link below. Yes I am that lazy. Once again this is my favorite little crocheted sweater pattern and now the hat is a fav. as well. Not to mention the cupcake app. I live on the genorsitiy of others. Thank you my dears each person that has the talent I lack for writing up patterns then giving them away. Sweetness is yours.

I am knitting a baby sweater it is such a soft yellow and soft as butter. I am on the search for the perfect button. Feeling icky today, but pulled my bloomers up and posted anyway. Hugs bugs

Christmas basket started...potholder talk

I have made 2 potholders for the basket so far. One I think is a little small,but my mom likes them a little smaller than normal (green one). Now the red one is made larger and it folders itself into a triangle. Why? instead of whipping it shut with yarn and needle you either slp stitch or sc it closed forming a rid on one side which lends its self to folding and it stays folder. I really like this one. So you can find the pattern at potholder Now the crocheting it closed is not in the pattern its just the way I do it for the tri potholders.

You remember why the Christmas basket? Mom and I make small things and place them in a basket next to the door. Anyone that drops in can grab a gift. It is always empty Christmas night.

So far it has: 6 kitchen hanging towels, 6 dishcloths, 7 coasters and 2 potholders my mom (Nan-Nan) is making or trying to make another potholder. She is my hero. My mom's fighting spirit sets an example for the entire family.

I had mom over for a sleep over last night. We went to bed at 2am. We ate our selves sick, sang all the old songs, and we remembered.... it was a precious time.
Dad called her 3 times to tell her little things,sooo sweet. He was here before 10 to pick her up. She may be almost 83, but the woman is popular :)

This coming week I hope you laugh so hard that its hard to breathe and then again when you try to squeak out the incident to someone that would appreciate the incident. I could use one of those moments wish it back. Oh yes and there must me laugh/tears and a moist nose. If it doesn't happen try to relive the last time it did. For me it was a KY mom moment a hearing aide was involved....the giggling is starting.

Look what I just found in my inbox!

Red Heart Dots

This is kind of funny. I thought of a dotty afghan and a Red Heart pattern arrives a few days later. Now if I could just harness this new found talent. Lets see maybe a pattern for a sweet little knitted sweater for a boy in a size 4T with thumb holes in the cuffs....my dears I am concentrating....

I see a dotty blanket in my future

How to make a dotty square This is my changes:FRIST CORNER last round: I made a dbl crochet chain one dbl crochet in the top triple of the last round then dbl in each stitch to the next triple making another corner repeat till 4 corners are made join . Now its a basic granny to make it bigger.

Why did this pop out at me. Someone in my childhood either had a dress, apron, or skirt that was cream with different colored dots all over. I don't know who it was, but I must have loved them for I remember laying my head in their lap looking at the dots. I will use all my scrap yarn to small for fish and off white for my dotty blanket. Next time I make it to town I will buy off white for it.

I saw a version of this in a book at Hobby Lobby for $ 11.00. I had my 40% coupon,but still it was the only pattern in the book I wanted. (There has to be one I will make and 2 I like to buy any books. I need rules people ask WP.)

I am working on the cupcake button sweater...it will be pink.

My dears may you have a lovely week filled with good surprises yummy food and the
best of friends. Wish me back for I am in need of good things hugs bugs.
