Pinkish Knit Bandanna

wpid-20150322_113342.jpgHI all!  I saw this cute bandanna scarf in my latest Knit Simple Magazine, It’s super cute!   I knit one up for my beautiful daughter-In-law for one of her birthday presents.



She was very kind to model the bandanna for me so I could do this post (Thank you Darci!)  Her favorite color is PINK.  I love knitting all levels of complexity, but to be honest here I really enjoy the simple knits for when I want or need to relax.  I seem to always tense up when knitting lace, etc.

I wish everyone a blessed and Happy Easter!

Happy knitting,

A Fun Knitting Year for 2014

It has been a fun knitting year for me simply because I became a Nana (grandma) and got to knit some fun and pretty baby things for HER!!!  Pink is Lila’s favorite color……well ah….. I mean her Mom, haha!





















Lots of hats, blankets and booties. I forgot to take pictures of everything I made (oh well).  There is much more, but nothing too complicated.  The blanket is a Lion Brand pattern with some changes, I added three colors of yarn plus I knitted four rows of each color to give it the chevron look as opposed to knitting two row of each color.  She seems to outgrow the hats I make for her but that’s a good thing ;) Many of the patterns are from Ravelry and Etsy.  Sorry I don’t have links this time around but they are not that hard to find online.

As a Realtor, I’ve not had much time to knit and crochet more, DARN!!! But LOVE every minute of being a Realtor.  I have met so many friendly and helpful people along the way and have learned so much.

Wishing everyone an exciting and adventurous New Year,

Happy knitting :)

Finished Summer KAL Shawl

Here is the shawl I showed in the last post but it’s all finished now !  I’m very pleased with how the shawl turned out, and love how Wendy Knits patterns (((hug))) the shoulders. She is so good at designing these very wearable shawls.  You can find her patterns on Ravelry here.


































Knit Picks finger weight yarn is what I chose but you may adjust the pattern for different weights.  I think this colorway will go with most coats and sweaters for Fall and Winter.  I haven’t steam pressed the points yet but you get the idea.

I have exciting news!!! I am employed with A Real Estate Brokerage office in San Diego County called Berkshire Hathaway Home Services California Properties.  I have so much to learn but I don”t care.  Its something I have always wanted to do…….guess that can be scratched off my bucket list now :)  I’ve never really had a bucket list, but if I did, real estate would be on that list, Haha!

Happy knitting : )

Self Publish Your knitting Book.

This is a way bloggers could turn their blogs into a book.

How about you knitters out there? Maybe you could add all the patterns you’ve created or everything you’ve ever handmade! Such a cool idea.  You could have a picture book!

I’ve started a KAL  (knit a long) by Wendy Johnson. It’s her Summer Mystery Shawl for 2014.

Love this yarn. It is called Stroll Tonal by KnitPicks, The colorway is Thunderhead.  Just in case you’re interested in a fun knit, I have a link here to take you to the pattern on Ravelry.  I always say we knit by faith so this one is just that, you don’t get to see what the pattern looks like ahead of time……..though I guess I am showing you a little bit of it ;) Sorry!

Happy Knitting!

Looking Cute Baby!

Well my goodness, it’s been awhile but very rewarding last few months. I will show you some of the items I knit and crocheted for our new and 1st grandbaby.

The first two outfits are for her photo shoot.

Baby Turtle Set by Southern Posh Patterns  The turtle outfit is not practical to wear but pretty darn cute anyway.  It was so much fun to crochet.





Darling Corset Onesie by Melody’s Makings



I love to crochet baby blankets, they are quicker than knitting and very warm if needed. I used the Lion Brand free pattern and made just one change.  Instead of  double crochet two rows for each color , I did four rows and that gave it a chevron look that is so popular these days.












Knit a plethora of washcloths for mommy and baby. Pattern by Simply Notable and it’s called The Almost Lost Washcloth.










I have an embroidery machine, so I embroidered our beautiful little grandbaby’s name on these little knitted hats.










Happy Knitting : )
