Hubby had to leave a “stupid thirty” (slang for way early) so I got up and knit in peace and quite until our “PacMan” got up and needed my attention.
So if you have not ordered this yarn before, you totally should! Its wool so it is warm, and it has a cool temperature to touch like silk. There are several options that are not pink. I want to make some baby blankets from this yarn. Did I mention its machine washable? Head on over to JimmyBeansWool and grab some of this for yourself. And if you feel like it, tell them Whitney Creath sent you, in the referral box.
The pattern is easy, fast, and produces wonderfully fast gifts.
I have been wanting to get some basic patterns published, and still have more ideas buzzing around in my head. To keep up with the newest ones check out my Facebook page… Subscribe to the blog feed, and follow my shop on Etsy. Which is where you can find the pattern to download as a PDF file.
As a teenager, I was a tomboy. I didn’t want anything to do with being crafty, or sewing. I like working with my hands, and I didn’t like to be indoors. So then my Mom started to teach us sewing and needle arts. I decided if I have to learn, I would learn needle art, because it was easy to lug outside.
Also, I was stuck with a nickname that reflected my tomboyish tendency. I walked into the bathroom to find my sister struggling to change the old wooden toilet seat for a new one. She was having trouble figuring out how to take the old one off. I walked in needing to have her fix it quickly so I could use the faculties. I quickly removed the old seat, and replaced it. Her response “I cannot do this sort of thing, I am a girl.” My response was “What am I a Duck?” And thus whenever my technically challenged family had a problem they would yell “I need a Duck.” So, I became the knitting Duck.
Now I am no longer at my families home. I am learning how to start using these talents as way to create, and help my family. All the while being a home maker, and wife. So here I plan to post my accomplishments, failures, and things I learn along the way. I hope you will join me on some of these adventures.
