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!!

Crafts during the summer

Toeless socks, I guess girls could wear them with flip flops, and I heard their great for getting manicures!

Blue ribbed scarf, its warm and stretchy!
Purple and white rolled side scarf, warm and thick.
Gator gloves! I saw the pattern in a stitch and bitch book and decided it was time to make something interesting. thus the adorable result! Their child size, and if I put my hands in them the ribbing on the bottem goes over the wide part of my hands, but it still fits!

I love them!
