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!!

So I have been working on some random different projects recently. This is an ear flap hat that I knit up after hearing constantly that many people are interested in ear flappy hats!

So its knit up in 100% wool, Araucania yarn. Which I love. love love love.

So I posted it in my Etsy shop to hopefully find some buyers. The money will go towards my Florida trip with the high school band I am student teaching with!

Next up is the mobius scarf I was knitting up this past week. It was knit out of Kudo, Plymouth yarn. Which is a really nice multi color scarf, and I think it knits up great as a mobius!

Mobius cast on is not that hard, and its actually a pretty cool idea! Try it!
