It has been a long time since I was here posting.  There has been a lot going on with mine and my husband's health.  We are trying our best to be able to stay in our home.   With help from family and friends, so far we are able to make it.  I stay busy with my hands or reading to try to stay sane. Ha!  I thought I would share some of the projects that have kept me busy.
This Shawl is Monarda Shawl from Sock Yarn Shawls II.  I knit it using Knit Picks Stroll Hand Painted-fingering yarn-Seashell Tonal

This is a granny-square baby blanket done with Lion Brand Baby Soft Print.  The pattern for the rabbit is Mario the Artistic Rabbit by Jenna Krupar.

 Swedish Spring by Maria Monteka and knit with Knit Picks Stroll - Dove Heather

Barley Hat by Tin Can Knits and knitted with Red Heart yarn 

Adriafil Knit Col - Baby/Toddler Socks - Plymouth Yarn Co. - 0-6months - I used Jamie Yarn by Lion Brand - weight #3.

Hitofude Cardigan by Hiroko Fukatsu and I used Knit Picks fingering yarn to knit it.

Sock Yarn Shawl by Kay F. Jones and knitted with Knit Picks Stroll


The Baby Vertebrae, hat, and socks are knit using Baby Bee Sweet Delight Baby Yarn.
Arrowhead by Maria Montzka -knit using Knit Pick Stroll -Seashell Fingering weight.
Sockhead Hat - Kelly McClure   Knit using Regia by Arne & Carolos
Clara by Karin Vestergaard Mathlesen - knih using Malabrigo Yarn - Viola
Mrs. Bakery Bear pattern by Kay F. Jones.  I knitted this for a very sick friend as a gift. I just used yarn I had in my stash.



The three above pictures are my first spinning attempts and project.  I used a drop spindle and spun the yarn and then plied it together, then soaked it, and then knit the little cat.  Not too bad for a first attempt.


This is my second attempt.  This time I knitted a coffee cup cozy with my yarn. 

I hope you enjoyed taking a look at my projects.  They gave me a lot of hours to keep my mind off our problems.
Love,
Marie

    1. Thanks so much Darlene for your kind words. My husband is not able to do much in the yard and that is so sad for us. He loved being out and working in his garden and flowers. We didn't have our fresh vegetables this year. We are having a rough time but we are still very blessed! Love, Marie
