my granny is twisted!

...this granny is spinning out of control...


I am on the verge of ripping out and starting over,
but I don't know how to prevent the next attempt from
ending up in the same twisted fashion...
anyone know what might be causing my twisted granny...


I know that blocking works wonders...
but knowing there is already trouble....do I turn back now
and try again...HELP!!!!!

february handwork

on my needles....Alpaca Sox...me, my, mine!!!


on the end of my hook....a blanket for a baby boy....


tired of lost hooks and needles...finally a solution...I love HOBBY LOBBY!


work continues on my granny squares...the stack grows slowly


....completely smitten with these socks...


these should keep me busy at least until the end of school...
in June....maybe...

The First Day of School

Somewhere tucked far away in the back of my head
 I knew this day would come....


...but what I never imagined was how much my heart would ache.

My boy will spend the rest of the year at a Waldorf day school with his sister...
and I will try to keep my hands busy with all the stitching I 
dreamt of doing when this day came.
