My latest project was featured in "Modern Patchwork" available on newsstands near you!

 Do you see it?!

My project is featured in the table of contents too!  You see that bunny mug rug in the center? 

I had a blast working with the publisher; they were so great to work with. 

Oh!  And I came across this adorable "Knit One, Purl One" kid top today at Gymboree.  Of course I had to get it!

Wishing you a Happy New Year, and thank you for reading my blog! :)

Knitting Bug

It must be December because I have been knitting nonstop.  I go through phases every year;  I am either super into quilting or knitting.  I think the weather has something to do with it.  I recently came across this "50 Yards of Fun, Knitting Toys from Scrap Yarn" book by Rebecca Danger.  It's perfect for scrap yarn we all have around the house.  I love how these projects are so small so you get this instant gratification and that they are portable.  I bought two copies: one to keep and one for our annual white elephant.  There is something special about carrying my basket of scrap yarn and making good use of them.

 Here is a little monkey I finished. 

Love this fish on my friend's Christmas tree :)

I have also started a robot that I was hoping to gift along with the fish, but it's missing two legs.  I am also knitting another mama and baby monster, and I picked up my sock project as well.  We will see how much knitting I get done!

Happy Holidays to all of you, and thank you for visiting my blog!
