It's A Big Sham

My knitting has been a bit sidelined the last few months as home decor projects have been eating up the usual time and attention given to knitting. Then it finally dawned on me that since I was so distracted with home projects it might make sense to...

I told you I was on a slipper knitting kick. These little Sock Monkey slippers for kids knit up so fast I could hardly believe it. They may just be the fastest thing I've ever knit. I used Tweedy Pima for the body and ears and some scrap Pima Cotton...

Gramma's Knitted Slippers

A friend generously passed along some yarn his mother had in storage (from many years ago). I looked at the box of raspberry and tan Spinrite acrylic and my heart sunk just a little -- what could I possibly knit with it? Then I thought about how year...
