Knitting Contest

Hello Everyone,

I love a good contest and so here it is the 5 places I have knit that is not at home or a knitting shop. You can read more at

1. American Airline flight to San Juan.
2. Hotel Dougherty bar in Clare Michigan
3. Dr. Openhuizen’s orthodontist office while waiting for kids
4. Church while waiting for son in confirmation class
5. Pontoon boat on “martini cruises” around Lake 13

There you go everyone. Have an awesome Monday.


Good Friday Thoughts

Hello everyone, A nice day here in my household. I had the second interview this morning – I am not sure it is going to work. The person was ten minutes late to the interview. The office was not even open when I arrived! It did not set a very good tone. Kyle made it safely to Boston – that is good, I did not sleep well last night thinking about him driving through the night.

Have a great afternoon,


Stitch and Bitch

Stitch and Bitch

Hello! It is knitting day at Lizzie Ann’s!! Two whole hours of knitting time with some great women! Knitting AND conversation – wow! Hmmm, one would hope that I find a job and SOON, huh? I wanted to show you all the completed camellia from Noni – I think it turned out amazingly! I am excited to finish the second one I am working on for my derby hat. I also am going to do some spider chrysanthemums for a friends hat.
Cute, huh? The “stamens” are achieved by using Crystal Palace Fizz, held together with the two strands of Lamb’s Pride Worsted – the pattern calls for Cascade 220, but I had this in my stash.

Today is Maundy Thursday and we are singing tonight in church – tomorrow morning – second interview, keep your fingers crossed for me.

Have a great day!


Update from Open Knitting – A woman who has a gallery in Douglas wants to sell my bags in her shop. Get paid for knitting? Can life get better than that??? Also, I am going to be teaching some classes at Lizzie Ann’s! It is Knitting Zen!! Have a great evening!

Smile and say cheese!

Well, here is my version of the Wobbly Circles Tote from IK. It was my first try at intarsia! I used Lamb’s Pride Bulky – Persian Peacock, Pistachio, Wild Violet, Rust, and Kiwi. I wish I would have known about the KAL – but I know where to look for them now! I am improving both my knitting and internet skills! All knitting and no work makes Kat crazy!

Wet Wednesday

Hello everyone! It is a good day to sit and knit – no garden work for me today it this wet weather. It was 78 out yesterday, but alas – today it is a mere 54. Still, spring is working on springing here – as Easter approaches we are supposed to climb back into the upper 60’s/low 70’s. I have some pictures to post, but I need my teenage son – Sam – to help me. Look for them later on tonight. I have a second interview on Friday morning – I keep your fingers crossed for me! I have one camellia done and felted, working on a second one! Have a great Wednesday all!
