It is no profit to have learned well, if you neglect to do well. Publilius Syrus (~100 BC)



I’m a mom to 3 boys, and grandma to 4 handsome little boys and 6 beautiful little girls! Can you believe it?? TEN grandchildren!!! :-D

I love creating things for my family. There are my kids and grandchildren, my boyfriend and his 3 kids… I’ve got three brothers, four sister-in-laws, eight nephews, four nieces and an uncountable number more extended family members and friends. I’m always thinking of the next gift I’m going to make!

My paternal grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was about 10 and I’ve been actively crocheting since I was about 14. I kept trying to teach my mom how to crochet, but she never got the hang of it. I wanted to teach her how to loom knit instead, but I ran out of time before she passed away at way too young an age.

My maternal grandmother tried to teach me how to knit when I was about 8 or 9, but never could quite catch on. I could make a terrific, never-ending scarf- just didn’t know how to finish it off! lol I’m now teaching myself (or rather re-learning) how to knit. Finally got it pretty much figured out… how was I to know that Gram taught me left-handed knitting? She was right-handed, as am I! lol I'm not nearly as proficient with knitting as I am with crochet though.

I started loom knitting in January 2007, but have not done much of that in a couple years. It’s so wonderfully quick and easy to learn. I’ve made dozens and dozens of hats and scarves, several infant booties, several toddler slipper socks, a couple of baby afghans, pillow covers, arm chair covers and other odds and ends.
