Mine Hut er hat drei ecken. … humm along!

Just kidding. An old German song I learned in 2nd grade.

Here are the hats I entered . . . . .  . the pics are not professional and quickly staged, so pardon me for that. The deadline was fast and furious. 😉



And now, I’ll be singing in German all day too. It’s called guerilla song plants. heeeee. Let me know if you caught it too. . . .


Will Enter Will Hope and May be Published . . . .

Got a personal (well group mail) message from Annie Modesitt because we’re ‘Friends’ on Ravelry.com. She’s modeknit there. She is leading a contest and request for submissions for http://1000fabulousknithats.com/ and is looking for photos of inspired designs, original designs, and pictures of anyone else’s designs that were done well. The deadline is July 1 though. DSCF3715I’m going to re-photo my baby hats but my kids are too big now. If you see a crazed redhead lurking after babies, you’ll know it’s me. heeeeeee! Also working on a new design, so this is my chance for publication in a book! So Cool. You never know when a knitter will make your day. ;D


Tis Better to Gift than to Receive

After lingering on Etsy during these warmer months, I made a well designated decision to gift two pair of fingerless gloves to some lifelong friends. One is my college roommate (not the dorm, but several rentals) and the other is her husband.






We reconnected with Jay at least when he drove through with his son on the way to a Summer stint with the Student Conservation Corps.

I wouldn’t knit a boyfriend a sweater unless it was LOVE, but fingerless gloves for a couple of great friends, that’s worth doing. 😉 I can always make more, and my selling record has been good – if the item has been seasonal. Working on more for the Fall as well as hopefully getting more off the ground that I’ve planned in other venues. Jay said they would certainly use them.

It doesn’t matter the hardships now. My sense of giving has not diminished and in many ways that is a gift in itself. ♥

Now, if I could just clone myself!

Small and Quick Projects

Hello all. I’m not neglecting my beloved blog on purpose. This is something I truly love! It’s been extremely busy and haywire in my house lately.

I’ve been feeling very neglectful but just don’t have a finished project to post. Still, yes still, working on finishing my clapotis by Friday for the beach wedding of a friend. I plan to wear it with yellow capris and a sleeveless white jacket. Sandals are assumed!!! SO . . . . . I’m posting a slew of my projects that were quick and get my seal of approval for easy and fun as well. Hope you enjoy. ♥

Sorry, no links, but my project page on ravelry.com has them all. Just look me up: 34me

Baby Booties (still need felted – I hope to accomplish this effort along with several others awaiting the washer soon), Old World Booties by Gryphon Perkins, US 2 / 2.75 mm needles – 




Fun fur scarf (aaaaaaaah! beware the manmade fibers!!!!) BUT it is my warmest softest one and I do love the rainbow colors. My own fabrication: 34 stitches on size US 15 / 10.0 mm needles, and about 66 inches long (about 1.7 meters). I doubt I’ll do fun furr ever again since becoming a natural fibers snob!!!! heeee –


Beaded wrist warmers. a rectangle of stockinette. I could have strung the beads but decided instead to crochet them in with a chain stitch. Standard seaming leaving room for thumb. My own fabrication: US 3 / 3.25 mm needles





Market bag through the looking glass, Knitted Market Bag by Desiree Scales, Lily Sugar’n Cream. This has worked well also to hold all of my to-be-ironed clothing. Don’t ask how long they’ve been packed in. . ..





Zoom for wetjet FO. Zoom by Erica Brembos, Lily Sugar’n Cream Solid, US 7 / 4.5mm needles. I just wish I had more wood floors. We may just remedy that soon by ripping up the old LR carpet!




Felicity by Wanett Clyde, US 8 / 5.0 mm & US 10 / 6.0 mm needles, sugar and cream naturals. This whipped up in a jiffy and made a nice gift. It’s a different kind of hat, so make sure you know your recipient’s tastes. I just guessed but I think she liked it.





Pill box hats for toddlers, pattern eludes me in my many stacks and crevases at home. Intarsia was my own doing just for fun.


Drying with creative blocking, moebius bowl, Felted Moebius Basket by Cat Bordhi, US 11 / 8.0 mm. This was tough to understand at first but once you ‘get’ it, it is so FUN! I need to use some fabric stiffener to hold the effect I’ve created on the felted handle. Yes, I almost always diverge from the pattern. 😀 and, this started me on combining lace with the moebius to figure out and create my own pattern for Infinity Peacocks Moebius Wrap. Very exciting!


Knit One Save One, savethechildren.org, US 6 / 4.0 mm & US 8 / 5.0 mm needles. My Thanksgiving project. I’ll probably repeat this yearly. I made 8 hats for infants around the world to help them survive their newborn days.



Yoga sock – gift!!!, Yoga Socks by Justine Turner, used Noro Silk Garden for lots of love!, US 3 / 3.25 mm. My bff opened the gift and couldn’t guess what they were! Now that I’ve told her and, since she adores yoga, she uses them all the time.



corky fun, Korknisse by Manne, somethiing fun to do with leftover sock and worsted yarns, US 2 / 2.75 mm needles. I won’t tell you the nickname some silly people at the winery call them!!! There’s always one in a crowd.





I hope this has appeased those of you who love to blog and read blogs. I’ll catch up again and get busy with my needles. Plenty of years and plenty of stash to go!!!!! 

All the best ~Anne
