My Last Catnip Mouse

For years now I have been drying catnip and making catnip mice at Christmas.  I used to make hundreds of them.  Now my hands rebel when I spend hours knitting.  This is my last catnip mouse for 2014.  Will I make a few next year for those special people and their special cat?  Like Yogi says, "It a'int over till it's over."  Spring will come and so will the catnip, but for now I'm done.

Jack Be Little Pumpkins

I have been making these little woolen pumpkins as gifts for friends since last fall.  I found the pattern online at The Sitting Tree. They were designed by Elizabeth Murphy who provides the pattern for personal use at  They are easy to make and add a colorful touch for your fall d├ęcor.

Hope you like them!

Big Sister

Hi! I'm Becky's "big sister" Sylvia!  I am older but she always told me "You are not the boss of me!"  I love to knit like Becky does but she is a more advanced knitter so "big sister" learns a lot from her. I am part of a Prayer Crafter group at my church where we began with prayer shawls and have found all sorts of fun projects: chemo caps, baby blankets, mittens, sweaters etc. We have even sent hats, scarves and gloves to Bulgaria! I am looking forward to posting some fun projects here! Thanks, Becky for inviting me.

Time for a Big Change!

Starting very soon, my Big Sister will be writing on this blog with me instead of Purl.  Truth be told I have not heard from Purl for a long time now.  Since I want this blog to survive, I have invited my sister to join me in writing on this blog.  She is just as crazy about knitting and other neat projects as I am.  We plan to have lots of fun!
