About Me

My photo
Illinois, United States
I am a band director at five private schools in Kankakee. Music is a big part of my life, but knitting and crafting are right up there too. I own a ridiculous stash of yarn, which I am slowly using... and replacing with better yarn... I tend to knit and crochet a lot, in class, out of class, while watching tv, while driving, pretty much constantly. I have been involved with crochet romantically for 15 years, and involved with knitting for 11 years. They sometimes get jealous of each other. I think its funny. Along with knitting and crocheting, I quilt, spin (drop spindle) and design patterns!!

The best part of waking up isn't Folger's in your cup. It's the fact that Chuck Norris didn't kill you in your sleep.

theres always those times where you crochet or knit something you really like. especially if it works up fast. i started this uhhhh yesterday night and just finished the fringe up today, while of course starting another scrap scarve. but hey its a great freaking way to get rid of the little itsy balls of yarn i have floating around my room, and it works up really quick!

this is more true to the color i gave it!
the beautiful fringeness,
probably selling this for about 20, but i would love to actually have interest in wearing it cause i love it so much!

sale 20 the story of this purse... i made it without a pattern and it turned out great. then i lost it, and didnt think aobut it for about a year. when it turned up again i realized i never put lining in it. so i trudged over to hancock fabris and looked. didnt find anything, i was going for the hawaiin theme, but nothing worked. sooo after giving up liz drags me to hancock again. and lo and behold she finds a fabric, one that is not hawaiin, but kinda funky. and it worked out great!
