Polar fleece rugs, handbags, knitted and crocheted toys and apparel

Looking very much like Christmas here in northern Mn. I am working many hours to get my etsy shop stocked with more polar fleece items plus adding new additional creations of my own in knitting and crochet. I wish I didn't have to sleep, too many ideas flying around in my head!

We have 3 inches of snow on the ground, making it look very pretty but also slippery in spots. Shovel has come out of storage with the boots and mittens! A pretty time of year but also a very busy one, one I like very much!

Temps are Falling Fast!

Well, get prepared," Winter is coming" is what one local forecaster announced this morning. We are seeing our temps in the high 50's (yesterday) going down quickly today. We now stand at 35 degrees above zero! Ouch! Well now I am even more tanked to get the mits, hats scarves and warm accessories out in my etsy shop.

Today is Veterans Day. My husband was in the Airforce during the end of the Vietnam War. We were stationed at Barksdale AFB, a very beautiful base in Shreveport, Bossier City. I have many good memories of those days, friends in the military became our family away from our families. Some we are still in touch with, a special friendship shared by many. Thankyou to all our Vets and troups!

knitted pullover childs sweater


Knitted hooded childs sweater

This sweater is an easy beautiful sweater to knit for a child. It is also one that if you are an experience knitter and like to add your own additional stitches or ways of binding off at hood or possibly even change with embellishments. I have combined 3 patterns plus adding my own ideas to this sweater. I used Red Heart acrylic sport yarn. Keeps it shape and is very warm. Our granddaughter says she is beautiful in it! That is all that mattered to me, Happy it keeps her warm plus warms my heart!
