Dear Knitting friends. It has been a while since I have gotten to chat with you. I have taken this past year and a half off from blogging, because, well, it was just too much. I started my little blog with the intent of helping others learn to knit, and to share all … Continue reading A simple new beginning.
It is here at last! Summer! Although we have been experiencing summer weather for about a month now, summer finally made its appearance on the calendar. I found this oldie on YouTube and had to share! I love Nat King Cole 🙂 The Lazy Crazy Days of Summer - Nat King Cole http://youtu.be/Im8n-BYkCZQ I'm taking … Continue reading Workbasket Wednesday – Happy First Day of Summer!
Today is a beautiful day, thank goodness! The past week's monsoon washed out the part of the garden I did have planted, and put the grass into super grow mode. So today, all knitting projects are put on hold to replant seeds and tame the yard. But I have a few links to share … Continue reading Weekend Link Love
Saturdays are always non stop for me, and today (really yesterday because Saturday ended 10 minutes ago) was no exception. I don't know how I manage to do it, but I somehow end up with Saturdays full from sunup to sundown. I think a large part of it is the fact that we … Continue reading Knitting Around Tulsa

These videos were created for the … Continue reading Knitting 101: Part 2 – The English Knit Stitch
This is a rewrite of the post that was scheduled for early this morning. I don't know what happened to the draft of the original. Being that I am still figuring out WordPress I must have accidentally moved it to trash instead of published it. I apologize the re-write is so tardy, it has been … Continue reading A Knitter I Wish I Knew – Maggie Righetti
I hope you all are enjoying a beautiful weekend. In some parts of the world it is still covered with a blanket of beautiful snow. But here the weather is being unusually warm for this time of year. Saturdays are not my days off, I rarely get any personal knitting done, and I have … Continue reading Weekend Link Love – St. Paddy’s Weekend
