Here is a pix of my first round dishcloth. It was done in peaches n cream yarn. Can't remember the name of the color. This was such an easy pattern and I had a lot of fun doing it. This on was done on size 8 needles. I think the next one I do will be done in my usual size 7's.

Close to my heart (CTMH) Cards

So for those that know me they know that I've always "collected" scrapbook items. I have thousands of pictures in which are just waiting to get put into albums and pretty pages done. I've done a few pages a few years ago and then I started a new hobby, crocheting and knitting. Scrapbooking was put to the side.

Just recently my sister in law and mother in law started making cards using products from a company called Close to my Heart. At first I didn't attend any of the workshops, but then my sister in law became a consultant so I decided what the heck I'll attend. I totally love the products and the ideas.The workshops are fun and I come home with some pretty neat projects that I know i wouldn't of attempted. The Close to my Heart link can be found here : Traci's website
Below are some of the cards that I have made.

This is a cute accordian type album. I loved this one.

here is the inside. It has a total of 4 pgs.

Here are assorted cards that I have done at the 2 workshops I attended.

Flower Dishcloth

Here is another new dishcloth. This one is a flower. It was a lot of fun to knit up. The yarn used was Debbie Bliss cotton. My friend loves this yarn so I took her advice and decided to try it. She was right it's extremely soft. Pattern is from knitsbyrachel.

Another Jacket for Alysia

It's been awhile since I've blogged. Here is my newest project that I finished back in May. It is another jacket for my youngest daughter. This was based on the sweater which is below, but I made some adjustments along the way to account for the different yarn.

This was made with Muench Big Baby yarn. I can't remember the color name at the moment. But I fell in love this yarn. It's a bulky weight yarn so it worked up really quick.
