Here is my latest WIP (Work In Progress). This is the Simple City Shrug. I purchased the pattern from  I did not want to purchase an expensive yarn and I was not sure I was going to  like it to so I am using Caron’s Simply Soft and I have to tell you that I am in love with it so far.  For an inexpensive yarn it is fantastic and I am enjoying the pattern.  It is a great beginner pattern and Iam excited to finish it and try something harder.  I am also posting some pictures of my new favorite scarf pattern.  I made several of these for Christmas gifts. This was a Lion Brand Pattern that turned out very different from the picture because I did not use the yarn that was suggested, but I loved the results.

Have a great Sunday!

Welcome Back!

So here I am again.  I guess I can not stay away.  I love reading other people’s blogs and having one of my own.  I guess that is why I am back.  I had a tough year last year and did not feel like I could give anything to the blogging community.  I am very happy to put 2010 behind me and welcome a new year.  I am excited about 2011!  It too is going to be a challenging year but these are challenging times for many. 

Although I have been away from blogging I have not been away from creating.  I am doing a lot of knitting and crocheting right now.  I find it very therapeutic.  I joke that it is cheaper than therapy! But it is actually not a joke, it is real.  Anyway, thanks for following and being patient with me as I make my way back into the blogging community.  My blog will focus on my creations as well as my ramblings.  I hope that you enjoy.
