Winter Sports

It's that time of the year again...time to start those winter sports we all love. What's your favorite winter sport?  Here's mine...

Well, you may not seeing knitting at the Olympics any time soon, haha, but I'm telling you it's my favorite winter time sport! I specifically love to get a blanket going. That way I get to knit and stay warm at the same time!

I have two blankets going this year. The first is with Homespun Lion Brand yarn. It's so soft! The color I am using is called "Ocean." I think it will go nicely in the living room. Here's a close-up:

My other blanket is a white cotton blanket:

Notice how it has that edging? I am using the "Favorite Grandmother's Dishcloth" pattern. Instead of finishing for a small square I'll just keep increasing until it is blanket sized. Here is the pattern:
Grandmother's Dishcloth
No fancy patterns, I can knit and chat or knit and watch a movie with the family. :) It's relaxing and helps me de-stress from the day. 

What's your favorite craft or home art? This week I want to try make a couple of Christmas wreaths. I found some tutorials online. If it comes out, I'll surely share. :)

"and to make it your ambition to lead a quiet life: You should mind your own business and work with your hands, just as we told you, so that your daily life may win the respect of outsiders and so that you will not be dependent on anybody." 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12


  1. If you get stuck on Christmas wreaths come over! I have a bunch I'm going to make, and I'll walk you thru it!

  2. Thanks Laurie!! :) That's a comfort to know! :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment. :) It's just like opening the mailbox and seeing mail from a friend!
