The"wishing for Spring to arrive" is everywhere!


Even behind the skeins at Seed Stitch Fine Yarn.


Do you believe it might be filling the corners of my house as well?

Like this color from my Lotorp On-the-Go Bag flowing onto my floor?


Was there any doubt?

I'm in the mood for Spring!

And I'm taking a short break from my knitting by crocheting.


Just took me eight hours to come up with some splashes of color for Spring using Saucy Sport Cotton by Reynolds. You can use any brand of mercerized cotton for this though. Saucy is what I had on hand.






Just a little something for Courtney down at Seed Stitch Fine Yarn to put up and help conjure up some magic in order to bring in the Spring season a little faster. After all, nothing says Spring like a bunch of color right? Since most of us are now sick of snow and this is the Witch City, I felt I needed to pull out a little spell from my bag of yarn tricks. (Oh ... I think I might have outed myself as to possibly being a Salem Witch.)

Do you think it will work??

Lace is in the air and it's made with ...

Cashmere. Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere to be exact. And it's oh so sweet!!


The shawl is called Queen Anne's Lace.



You can find all the details on Ravelry!


But I've got more knitting to do kids and must keep this short and sweet too.

Catch ya later!

I'm around ...

I just haven't had the time to sit down and write lately. I guess that's because I've been either knitting or crocheting of course! It sure hasn't been because of housework that needs to be done.

I finished one project shown here ...

Little Hearts Garland for Seed Stitch Fine Yarn store display for Valentine's Day ... the picture was taken in my living room but it's now hanging on display at the store.


These were completed but I have a load of projects in the works. Working on all of them off and on. So here's just a peak ...



Now that's just a couple. Sure there's more. But the "BIG one" below took up most of my time. I just can't show it to you yet because I have to "block it" ... TOMORROW.


But I wanted to send you all a "Happy Valentine's Day" wish from both DH and me, the StitchingNut ...

P.S. He's even wearing the vest I knit for him a few years ago.

What a sweetheart kind of guy!!
