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!!

little diddy

This was a pretty cool pattern that I discovered online. Its a thick braided scarf with two strands of yarn. Its comfy and cushie and I really just loved how fast it knit up.

My first double knit anything! i love it, and it was fun. Took a long time and i realized that unless you do something on the sides, it will just be two fabrics with some stiches connecting.

one side of the heart

and the other side. It was a pretty cool project and I'm glad Pat left me alone long enough to actually figure out how to work it! lol
