winnie the pooh.

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

My favorite part of the day… I don’t remember anyone reading me books like this when I was a kid. I treasure the fact that my husband makes it a priority to read stories to our kids. He’s read aloud all of the Chronicles of Narnia, Winnie the Pooh (at least three times now!), Willie […]

So, I’ve been looking and looking for a cute little gender-neutral baby hat. I’ve seen yellow and green things at both Target and Wal-Mart, but they just aren’t… cute. LOL! In a case like this, it’s a handy thing to know how to knit: I’ve had this yarn for a little while now. It’s a […]

My Manos scarf is done! Look at the cute model I found: 52 inches of love and stitches. Can’t wait to give it to my loved one! Well, honestly, I kinda want to keep it and love it forever. Such pretty colors! But I think I really like hording yarn more than hording projects. Now, […]
