More Wee Wonderfuls kitty and bunny dolls.


Stash busting! Here are some Mason-Dixon Ballband dishcloths made of odds and ends.

Noro Scarf

My father-in-law has a big birthday coming up in January, so I knit him this Noro Stripes scarf. It's a pattern I've been wanting to make, and I've amazingly never knit with Noro yarn before, although I love its colors!

To decrease itchiness, I chose Chirimen yarn in color 1, which is a yarn made mostly of cotton with some silk and wool. CO 31, size 6 needles.

January Hat

The yarn is Vintage by Berroco (acrylic/wool/nylon).

Adding to Paul's knitted hat collection, in January 2010 I made a Knotty but Nice hat from Check out the snow! This is a "man's" pattern, but I think it would be equally lovely for women. I made it a bit longer than the pattern called for.

And More . . .

I made a Mason-Dixon baby kimono for parents who don't like a lot of pink for their little girl, so I added a green silk ribbon. The pink circle on the front is a paper label.

I made sock monkeys for my two toddler friends! They are two years old this year.

Present and Past Projects

This is a hat I've been slowly working on for a while, the Trilobite pattern from

I recently completed some doll clothes that I cut out in August 2009. These are sleep sacks that tie in the back for 16-inch baby dolls. The flannel fabric was purchased as remnants. Very sweet. The one on top has a baby Strawberry Shortcake print and the bottom one has a bright pink, tiny flower print. I hadn't sewn with bias tape before this project. It was an adventure. They turned out OK, some of the seams are not very sturdy.

This wedding cross stitching project was my big project for five or six months. The pattern is "I Thee Wed" by Blackbird Designs. The thread is hand dyed and the cloth is linen. I had it framed at the Nashville shop where I bought the supplies, The Stitching Post, and they did a great job showing me matting and framing options. The glass is UV protected, so hopefully this project will be displayed for a long time! It is personalized with my and Paul's initials, and the date of our wedding. It was on an easel near the guest book at our wedding!
