She’s Back


I finished my January Scarf this afternoon, I used Shepard’s Wool on size 8 straight needles. I had 2 skeins and used all but about 5 feet of it…


I really love the lace edge on this neck scarf.
I think I’ve knit close to a dozen of these scarves…malabrigo is a BIG favorite of mine and so is Manos Del Uruguay “maxima”

I’ve also used Peruvia,Comfort DK,Ultra Alpaca & Ultra Alpaca Light
When I began knitting Berroco yarns were my #1 favorite, they still are…

The pattern for these little clicks can be found at http://www.knitrowan.com. The pattern is free.

I made a few changes to my knit-chicks, I decided not to hand stitch the round circle on the body and I decided to use buttons for the eyes. I also used the knitted I-Cord for the legs instead of crocheting the legs. I think I ended up with 8 total chicks. I gave the 3 best ones to my mom for Mothers Day…she loved them!


I’m working on a cute neck shawl called 22 Little Clouds. I’m using Manos Del Uruguay yarn, it’s a brick red color I love dark reds!


I’m going to use 2 skeins of yarn for this project.

Stairway is finished,blocked and now waiting for winter! This was an enjoyable project. I could sit and watch a little t.v. With the husband and not worry that I’d loose my knit place, I liked that a lot!!



All these patterns can be found on Ravelry
Look me up while your visiting Ravelry, my name is YarnKnitLuv on the web-site.


Next up on my knit projects is “Jen in Breck”, its a really cute shawl with a beautiful lace and eyelet edge detail. I’m going to use Manos Del Uruguay “Maxima” in a muted light green. It’ll be beautiful!!


I’m thinking of honing my designing skills. I’ve got a few hat patterns and I’m working on several neck scarves-shawls. There is a lot involved in the process…test knitting,working out the kinks, overcoming my own apprehensions and well….but I’ve taken the plunge! =)


We stopped by a friend of ours Saturday, Billy has lots of farm animals! We stop by every couple weeks to get some farm fresh eggs. It’s fun to see all the other animals too!

This is Fat-Bouy, he is a pot bell pig. The grandchildren adore him!

The newest addition is Billy and Betty…goats. They were very friendly! Billy wanted to hop up onto my lap!

congratulations Nick

My nephew graduated from high school Friday evening, we are so very proud of him!

The Class of 2013

Louisa County High School Graduating Class
This is where the epicenter of the earthquake was, it gave the east coast a good shake! The high school was damaged but they (the county) said it was safe for the students, then they had some very strong aftershocks and that closed the doors for good. They are building a new high school.

It’s been a long, exciting day…on my way home the moon was full and the reflection on Lake Anna was beautiful…
Hope everyone had a nice Memorial weekend.
