One day warm , one day rainy. One day blue sky no clouds and a gentle breeze, the next day cold, gray and a blustery north wind. I wish there was a button to make it all stop and just turn on the good weather but I know that is not possible. I know it is supposed to be winter, I get that. I live in South Carolina, and we usually do not have such up and down temperatures. It is not just us either the whole country is having this. I just look forward to spring and steady temps. My allergies will be grateful as will I . All this up and down is making my head and nose hurt and I look like a squirrel packing away nuts with all the kleenex I have stashed everywhere. I live very close to these mountains and when you come out my street to the main road you can see them a bit.
Well welcome to my little blog all about me , my life , my family and my yarn addiction. Yes I am a yarn addict, I freely admit that and I love love love to use it for all types and kinds of projects. I knit , I crochet and I use a loom sometimes. Nothing gives me greater peace then after doing all my chores for the day then to sit and use some of that yarn to make something useful , warm and fun. I make all kinds of things , really. I can spend hours and hours just traveling the internet for patterns for all kinds of things. I love to knit for my grand daughters, and their dolls and bears. I love to make hats , mittens , blankets , sweaters, and socks. Nothing is a waste of time if you love learning how to make it and if it adds to the person that you become , right? I will try just about any kind of project and even if it takes months to learn it and finish it that makes it all the more grand I think.
Some of the things that I have done for family and friends include slippers , fingerless mitts, dish cloths and scrubbies, sweaters , and baby items. Lots and lots of baby items for my newest little angel Alyssa Jean. She is now almost 6 months old and getting more adorable everyday.
I am a stay at home mom to puppy dogs and chickens. I raise chickens for the eggs , no roosters on this little farm. There is not much tastier then a farm fresh form the nest little brown egg in the morning to go with the homemade bread freshly baked. I try to cut corners where ever I can and save pennies so I do a lot of things myself like baking bread, making laundry soap, and lotion bars for my hands. That is where knitting and crochet helps too as it is much cheaper to by some good old redheart yarn and make those adorable mittens then to pay upwards of $10 bucks or more for cute ones off the shelf. That is what I tell my self each time anyway. It makes me feel better when I buy more yarn . That is my story and I am sticking to it . Well time for me to go , I shall return soon and often with more stories and pictures of my yarn adventures and goings on here in the south . Take care and we will see you when we see you.
