Birthday Yarn

Now, please note, my birthday isn’t until October, but my aunt and uncle recently moved, and rather misplace my gift during their transition, my aunt chose to give it to me while she knew where it was.  She gave me some BEAUTIFUL birthday yarn. The yarn is by Leading Men Fiber Arts, and I made […]

Looking at the photo, you can tell what I did.  I got some pom poms, and grabbed my […]

Stuffies Without Faces

Yup! My stuffies from Annie’ Knit Animal Friends are coming along, though they are currently stuffies without faces.  I’m still deciding on how to go about that.  I’ll tell you why I don’t want to do what the patterns recommend in a sec. First of all, the doggie looks much better than the anemic-ly stuff […]
