My New Scarf

Hand Crocheted 100% Baby Alpaca yarn. I made it for myself! I gotta stay warm too...this winter is cold here! It's already snowed in Seattle! I am also trying some new designs, so this is also an experiment :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

I made these Kolachky filled with poppyseed, apricot and strawberry rhubarb fillings. Yum! But by the time dessert time rolled around, I was so full, and could only fit in a small piece of delicious pecan pie! It was a meal of epic proportions, with 26 of us all together sharing a plethora of dishes. I love Thanksgiving!

The Black Cowl

I love my black cowl.

Busy busy....

I love filling orders for's been non-stop these days! I am so grateful for everyone who has ordered a cowl neck warmer from my Etsy shop to keep them warm and cozy this winter THANK YOU THANK YOU!

I also love special orders for friends, like this cowl with I am making with some super soft alpaca yarn. The plan is it will be a scarf, but then have buttons on the end so he can wear it as a cowl too. I am making it up as I go!

I love Autumn...and leeks.

Hello everyone! Last weekend we went to Port Townsend to visit Maude and Chuck, and had a relaxing and fun time, as always when we go to visit them. We had alot of laughs and walked all through all the trails and parks in town, and enjoyed windy fall weather by the water. It was the perfect sweater weather, and I wore the orange sweater my mom knit for me, which makes me feel like a human pumpkin.

We also had some delicious leek soup. The leeks were so beautiful! Maude picked several of them fresh from the garden.

Am I the only one crazy about leeks? They are my favorite vegetable by far!
