I started this blog several years to make a record of some of the things that I have stitched whether it be knit, sewing or cross stitch. I also like to come up with ideas for gifts for family members. I also have included some of my writing but not all of it. Just a little rambling sometimes. When I was a child I loved to visit my great aunt in Somerset Kentucky. So many wonderful memories come back when I think of that time.

These were finished in time for Christmas this year. They are both double knit. So the design is visible on both side of the scarf and the hat can be worn with either side showing. Word of advice if you are going to start a double knit project keep in mind it is like to making two projects and takes about the same time as making two. Also your gauge will be different so consider that if you going to make your own design. I found that when I started the skull hat that I was making a cowl instead of the hat because I figured the pattern using the gauge I usually get when using worsted weight and size 4 needles. Now I am on my way to start a pair of fingerless gloves to match the red and black in the set.
