About Me

I am a wife to one special man (DH), mother of one son (DS), two daughters (DD#1 and DD#2)and one kitty (a girl-Angel Who Isn't), grandmother of six grandsons and two granddaughters (refered to by age). I am a lover of all things cat. Knitting and spinning take up about 75% of my thoughts and actions during the day. If I didn’t have DH and Angel it would probably be more like 99%.

I don't think I've shown this yet. It's another Miss Gracie but I'm trying to simplify the pattern so even a beginner can knit it. It's not going well because I have the pattern almost memorized and I...
I hate zippers. Not all zippers, mind you. Just the ones I have to stitch on. This one took me almost as long to sew in as it took to knit the sweater and it's only a size 4 (14 inch zipper).Front Bac...
