Sugar n Cream

Another way to describe the Boston Red Sox Victory in the World Series! Beat the Colorado Rockies in a sweep!

But the real reason I am posting today, is to say how much I love this yarn! Sugar n Cream 100% Cotton. Today I am making dish cloths in the wine color and this color is just magnificent.

Fall has finally arrived with temps around 25 last night. I had to scrape my windshield this morning before coming to work. To say the least, I was not pleased. I am such a wimp in the cold.

WIP Tote

I finished this tote today for my WIP. I used Lion Brand Suede and did it in the basket weave stitch. I am very pleased how it came out.

Just the right size to take to work.

Red Sox are 3-0 right now and they are playing tonight. Could this be a sweep?

Also, the Patriots are undefeated. Great for New England Sports.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I want to remind everyone that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is very important to me as my father died of a brain tumor when he was only 44.

Please take a moment for yourself for breast examination and your yearly mammogram or flatogram as I call it.

Also, please make a small donation to Relay for Life walks in your area.

Cable Purse

I finished this just in time for my sister's birthday this Saturday. I am pleased with it however, I would have preferred smaller bamboo purse handles. I hope she likes it.

3 Day Shawl

Still working on this 3 day shawl and it's been about 5 days. Oh well. I had to frog it because it was just not wide enough.

I will post the end result. Curious just how long this is going to take me.

We are having unbelievably warm weather here in Western Massachusetts hit 80 yesterday but more seasonably weather is on the way.

To be continued...

Cloudy Thursday

I have been running out of time for something for my sister's birthday. I tried crocheting her a shawl, but that didn't work out so I am doing a cable purse for her.

Here are a few samples of the colors I am doing not sure which one will be hers.

I ordered the purse handles online I hope they arrive in time. I also need to get material for the lining.

These pics came out dark I took them on my cell phone. The colors are blue and buff fleck (tan and brown specks).

I have been home the last 3 days with a terrible cold and believe it or not I have not got much crocheting done. A little here and there but I just feel to sick to sit up. Till next time...

Blanket Buddy

I made this new blanket buddy for my new Granddaughter Emily. This was done with Caron Simply Soft Pretty Pink yarn. The blanket was done in single crochet with a shell border. The Teddy Bear was made by a simple Amigurumi pattern I viewed on

I also made this boy's sweater made out of 100% acrylic - very warm! I would say it's probably a size 9 to 12 months. I am selling this also for $25. If you would like one in a different color, please email me.

It's been awhile since I took the time to post anything so here goes....

I created this bath puff this weekend and I have to say it was great using it in the shower.

I will make more of them in a color of your choice if you are interested. Sell for $5.
