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!!

back to school

I made this purse from scraps and just went along and figured out what i liked. In the end i decided to have three buttons at the top and a pretty decent interior.
Its kind of blurry but its like a Chinese flower pattern.
This purse is for sale for $20
I went on a spending rampage, (actually my mom decided that it wasnt healthy to have yarn laying around because it collects dust.) (howd you guess shes a nurse?)
we spent over 150 on this and i dont regret it at all, all my yarn is color coded and prettyfied.. too bad it still doesnt all fit into the bins...

its a prettyful site isnt it?

too bad its all three hours away..... sobs...

I just finished this hat, Just simple knit stitch and two yarns, and easy peasy. $10

And this is what EIU drumline is all about
