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!!

Hi Chica!

My favorite stitch markers on your site are the Abigail stitch markers.

My favorite thing to do in the summer is walk around my city, enjoying the sites and the people.

Says oooo, I love the turquoise stitch markers! And the green lantern ones. And the tree of life, and the red....

They are all beautiful!

Summer? Watching my kids play in the sprinkler makes me happy.
Thank you for the giveaway, and congrats on your 1st year teaching!!!

During the summer is the trip to San Destin, Fl for 4th of July. Also take my oldest son to Duke for his summer camp with Duke Tip. Otherwise working ;-(

Hope you have a great summer. Also following your blog!

I love the Ocean Jasper stitch markers! That yarn is a super fun color. I am a teacher so I get the summer off, and I love to travel to visit friends and family, sleep late, and knit in the air conditioned apartment.

Love the Mother Earth stitch markers.

My schedule in Summer doesn't change much unless I take vacation.

I do love the extra long days, so I spend a lot of time in my garden, time outside with my kitties, go to the beach, anything to be outside :-)

Okay, it's really not fair to make us pick just ONE favorite. If I had to pick just one, I'd pick the Tree of Life stitch markers. Next would be a tie between Black and Red, Country Western, and Turquoise. They are all beautiful!

I love to get sweaty in the summer. I know that sounds weird so let me explain. I do NOT like being sweaty simply because it's hotter than balls out. Sitting still, in the shade, with a breeze and still sweating is not fun. However, sweating buckets while working hard makes me feel very alive. And then there's always the wonderful feeling of a well earned shower.

Also, I love the family time that summer allows. I am really looking forward to bonfires with my family this year.

I love your Mother Earth stitch markers!

Over the summer, I love being a 4-H camp counselor; I grew up in 4-H, so I love being able to give back to camp.

I love your Tree of Life stitch markers!

In the summer I love that I can ride my bike to work. It cuts down on our fuel costs and helps me get my workout in as my commute, leaving more time for knitting!
