Summer begins this Friday so why not use vibrant colors? Currently on my hook (I intend on knitting with it as well).  I’m loving the new Red Heart Super Savers Stripes yarn colors…currently working with ‘Favorite Stripe’. They can be found at many craft stores/online for just about $3.00.

What a cool ‘Love the neighbor’ message.

With the breath of kindness…

blow the rest away. Amen.

Slip stitch to finish

A slip-stitch gives a neat finish to the final row (bottom) of a Crocheted hat (baby hats in this case).

Two color long tail cast on

Another way of casting on knitting (in the round) using two different color skeins of yarn. called two color cast-on.  No waste of yarn or trying to estimate how much yarn to use for the cast-on. I like using two colors to make baby hats.

I’m also on a roll making my multi-colored Granny Square Crochet baby blankets….using Premier Everyday Soft Worsted Yarn. Luxurious, soft yarn… love working with it! A new fav of mine.

Hello April!

Flowers = Spring time!

Enjoying the milder temps (in the 40’s today)… some are still wearing coats! I did look a little cray walking around in short sleeves, no jacket this weekend. 🙂

Crocheting and knitting baby items for charity… using pretty Spring colors!

 

 

Spring, ehh…

Mother Nature says, not so fast! Today was coldest day of Winter…. single digit temps in NY and expected to last through the week.  Not ideal walking weather… even with my insulated coat but we had a few tasks to complete.  Here are a few views we tend to take for granted. The street food vendors are always around, pretty much 365 days a year.

The M&M store is like a museum, fun for M&M lovers… from the crowds and all of the M&M filled shopping bags they appear to be thriving. I was tempted by the super cute M&M pillows myself but really…

And, Broadway, while the streets were busy, some areas are strategically closed/blocked off  and few people appear in my photos.
