The house rules have been on a plain white sheet of paper put up with tape. Years and years, the same paper moved and re-taped. When I saw these little chalkboards at the dollar tree, I had an idea for a fancy new update!

Gratitiude








One of my favorite embroidery designers made this some time ago. I edited out the many lazy daisy stitches and just stuck to the heart of the message. It is a reminder I still haven't had enough of.

Even with no baby around to knit for I couldn't pass up this cutie. I used 2 strands of yarn together but I'd like to make it again with just one. This turned out a bit heavy.

I'm working toward a knitting goal this year so this quick hat seemed like a good way to move forward and use up some stashed yarn.

Picked up this yarn on vacation in Ohio. Was so fun and easy to work with. I've wanted to try making something from this designer for a while and I'm glad I did finally. Great pattern, easy, fast.

A few more bracelets. I love matching to my outfits.

I used the pattern without using the pocket piece.
The buttons are decorative only. I just love having a new bag when I start a new knitting project. Making them seems to be the more affordable option than buying all the ones I see and love.
