- 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!!

It's simple, I just made up the pattern, didnt write it down though, I was too lazy to do that, and I didnt use a small enough hook, you can see the stuffing, but i love it, and i know he did too
And my baby Terrence taking a shedding bath. You can see the skin peeling off. lol i love it.

lots of knitting!
ok the story between these two hats. my friend hunts, and i hate the thought of killing animals... so i knit him a camo hat. why? so hed want to go hunting.
now why would i do that? well i knit the bright orange one so that when he is hunting hell think of me and not hunt. see? it all works out....
crocheted for a friends sister, still havent given it yet.
experimenting with stiches. basketweave here
and my new favorite thing to do, after years of not wanting to learn thinking it was too hard
and more cables
and this hat is purple, not black, but its a bad picture..
ok i think im done for now.. night!
