Let me think. Probably not I. Did it ever happened to you? You dream up a project, find the perfect yarn. And get a perfect texture, using your favorite needles. You know what you want to make. You can practically see it. You even solve some technical puzzles and happily pat yourself on the back. Then, some time later, as you are merrily knitting or crocheting you begin to realize that you are making something totall
Yes, I am actually old enough to remember this greeting, the first one on TV, made every year by whoever was the Head of the Communist Party in Russia at the time. Sounds pretty ridiculous now.Well, Happy New Year to all, who celebrates it! We all will have to get used to writing “10” instead of “09” on the checks and other stuff.

I am still continuing the contest with myself – trying to see how many more things I can finish up before December 31st.I have to say that I have been accomplishing quite a lot.

I am very exited to let you know that we are finally finished working on our website! It is DONE!This year has been a year of many changes for me and DH.

As soon as I pierced one with the knife it blue up, in my face, all over the stove, all over the floor… Who would have thought that ther
It is late at night, or maybe early in the morning. I guess it all depends on your point of view. I feel totally wrecked. I had some errands to run today and as I stood in line in one of the stores I heard something that my brain is still refusing to process.One of the women told all who would listen about a suicide she has witnessed. A young man has jumped out of the window. He was just married. As in two days befor
My “Nap Saque” is almost done, but like it usually happens to me in the middle of a large project, I was stricken with The Knitters ADD. I got a craving for some instant gratification.So last night I had an idea…I just could not go to sleep until I finished knitting THAT: Can you guess what is it?
Dear friendsI am wishing you all a Happy and Sweet New Year. May we and our families be healthy, our needles and hooks busy, the yarn is tangle-free, and the recipients of our gifts – grateful.And as my Grandmother have always added to any wish – may the sky over our heads be always peaceful.
