The longest sock ever....

I love the idea of this socks construction in theory - you knit 1 super long tube with ribbing on both ends. Then you fold the sock in half and cut it apart. You then knit an afterthought toe. After you have determined  where the heel should go place a marker and cut the heel portion open and knit an afterthought heel. Pretty neat isn't it? ....

Your smile for the day.....


A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store.
As he waited, he was approachedby a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the Post Office is?"The little boy replied, "Sure! Just go straight down this street a coupla blocksand turn to your right."The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in townI'd like for you to come to church on Sunday...I'll show you how to get to Heaven."The little boy replied with a chuckle.  "You're having me on, right? You don't even know the way to the Post Office!”

Cupcakes Beanies, still have to add sprinkles....




Tuxedo's New Adventure's

He loves to eat, and naturally the refrigerator is his desired object. Whenever he has the opportunity he jumps into the shelves. Makes me nuts…. our "boy" weighs in at 10.5 pounds, is healthy and playful. Full of "vinegar" and energy, especially when the rest of the family want to go to bed.... He is now 2 day's shy of being 9 month old. We all in love with him and his playmate Betsy.  In August of 2013 we adopted Betsy who is only about two weeks older then Tux.

Tux back in June of 2013 and look at him now....

Tux June 16. 2013 he is  3 day's old
Tux March 10. 2014;  9 month

He always loves to eat...
One cool cat...

When he has his sugar rush he literally “climbs” up walls and doors… ah coming down is another subject…





oh and he loves climbing into bags....

Look what I found on eHow


Talk about a timeless fashion accessory. The beret has been around for many years and continues to be a staple in many wardrobes. This beret is a very simple DIY project that even a beginner can make in under an hour.


I used a plastic lid that has an 11 1/2 inch diameter for my pattern. Cut around the lid adding a 1/2 inch for a seam allowance.

Cut 4 inches off the bottom of the sweater. Measure around your head and cut the strip to the same length minus 2 inches.


Fold the strip in half width-wise, right sides together, pin the edges and sew leaving a 1/2 inch seam allowance.


Now fold it in half lengthwise. This piece will become the headband of the beret.


Place the headband in the center and on top of the right side of the circle you cut from the sweater. Bring up four sides of the circle and pin to the raw edges of the headband.


Now find the center between the pins and pin to the headband. Do this all around the circle piece.


Find the center between the two pins again and pin in place. Repeat this all around the circle piece.

Find the center between each set of pins and pin again all around the circle piece. This will create an even gathering around your hat.

Sew a 1/2 seam around the pinned edge, be sure to move slowly as you sew to keep the gathers in place and to keep it from stretching too much.

Your beret will keep you warm for the rest of the winter and bring you into spring looking great.

What's Hot

"Forever Jacket"...

Forever in this case meant 6 month plus... I had some time over Christmas break to finish finally the "it takes forever" project. I am delighted by the results. It fits just perfectly - not only the size but also color combination accommodate my new pants very well.

THE "FOREVER SWEATER"

I am working on this thing for a long time now. Long time for me... since June. First it was exciting because the yarn was a great bargain and I was happy to have bought the last few skeins. June was hot, July hotter and I just couldn't knit this project in the heat of summer. When I was ready to take it out and continue knitting.... I didn't remember from which book the pattern came from. What a bummer, I put it back in the bag and a few weeks later I found the pattern book. It is a slow process ever since. It is knitted from the top down with NO seams. I had to re-do the first sleeve three times until I liked the way it looked.  I am almost done... I started the second sleeve and am done with the cap. Again this is from the top down which includes the sleeves as well. It is actually fairly easy to knit but... no but... I just lost interest in the project. I will however finish it before the week is over.
