Knitted Drawstring Gift Bag

[Note: I just posted photos of a couple more knitted Christmas Stockings for those interested. It is Thursday morning at about 9:20 EST.] First of all, thank you very much to those of you who joined me for coffee the other day ... whether you sat silently sipping without leaving a comment, or made your presence known with one. It was a good day, and a good time. The past few days I have actually started thinking that sometime in the future I might like to host a retreat here on our farm for some of the readers of my...

Cup o' Joe?

country living knitting stockings yarn

Would you sit and have a cup o' Joe with me? As people read my blog and some leave comments for me, I have begun to feel as if there is this cirlce of friends ... new friends ... who are gathering 'round. I began feeling this weekend that I would love it if we could all get together now and then with a cup of coffee and maybe our knitting projects and just have a knit and a chat together.

I woke up at four o'clock this morning with my husband, but tried to sleep a bit more ... to no avail.

I am using some of my Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Lavender Mix, and I do like the look of them so far. Rather than knitting the...

Hugs and Kisses Aran Stocking Complete

Green. My world is filled with green. I come from a place where we had about two days of green each year (Los Angeles) and I find myself in a place so lush and rich with water and soil nutrients that even the brown is green. Each day we have some beautiful sunshine with blue skies and puffy clouds skittering along followed, at some time day or night, by rain. This morning it rained early, but now the sun is shinning and reflecting off of the sweet water on the streets, on the lawn, and on the corn field. Our...

Lavender scarf is complete

country living faith family free knitting patterns knitting yarn

It is a beautiful, crisp and sunny almost the beginning of autumn day here. Last week we received more than three inches of rain ... some of it leaked into a downstairs closet through a problem area in our roof. On Saturday my husband and a good friend got up there and put a new surface on the section where we were having problems so hopefully I will be able to find a different use for our buckets, rag towels, and mops this week. Actually, this week I would like for all of those objects to remain unemployed. We also...
