About Denise

A stay at home mom of four, who homeschools, changes a lot of diapers.. minds the dog and in her spare time knits on her knitting boards and looms and occasionally picks up some knitting needles too..

We Pause for Free Patterns!

Why yes I should be working hard on finishing up the latest ‘secret project’ since my deadline is Thursday.. but that is no fun! Especially when there are cute free patterns like this one:


Berroco_Cubist_edited-1024x1002I took a peek at the pattern and it is one that could easily be done on a loom! I know there was someone out there looking for another shawl pattern they could use on the loom.. I of course can’t remember who but hey, hopefully this will get to them!!

Alright then.. the details are here!


Enjoy.. now back to work for me!


The Studio is Open!!

Well I am pretty well wrapped up with the most recent ‘secret’ knitting project! Just have a bunch of writing to do.. send anti writer’s block vibes my way please!

I have cleaned out my studio space from the winter clutter, and hope that the warm weather will stick around so I can start working out there!

IMG_2187Got a few things in progress there. My Addi King Size knitting machine has a special project on it that I am hoping I will be able to do.. on my dress form Sugar I have a shirt that needs a little fixing.. and you can see my sweet little spinning wheel that I got for Christmas! It’s not in operating order just now but we’ll see!

I have a couple things to share with ya’ll so look forward to the break in my silence!

And be sure to stop by Knitty Gritty Savings, I have been updating deals and giveaways there!
