Knitting Patterns for Baby Lovies

Baby Lovies
It started with the purchase of a soft pink yarn. I turned the yarn into the Piggy Blanket. Then I wanted to make more, in different colors, and with different faces.
For each of the blanket you will need about 3oz (85gr) of medium weight yarn, and use about 165 – 180 yards (150 – 165 meters). 
To purchase the e-book with all of the four knitting patterns click on this button:

Or you may purchase the patterns individually:

Kittie Blanket:

Time to celebrate .......3 years

It feels like yesterday when I wrote the first post. At that time I did not know what to expect. I thought maybe some friends and family might stop by, perhaps a visitor or two might discover my knitted toys and get inspired.

Three years later, my blog still exists. Visitors come from all over the world, and I continue to share my passion. A ball of yarn with the help of knitting needles turns into a finished object In my hands. It seems that people like my creations, and therefore I share them.

This year, to celebrate, I would like to give away 11 knitting patterns from my collection of patterns for sale.

The rules:
Followers are automatically added to the lottery.
Anyone who leaves a comment will be added to the lottery.
Drawing for the patterns will be held on Monday, March 17th 2014.
Please visit my blog to see if you are one of the winners.

Thank you for visiting.

101 Snowballs

Snowballs - beginning

Snowballs started one year when we had way too much snow, but too powdery and not good enough to make perfect snowballs. It occurred to me that it would be easier to knit one rather than try to make one. My idea turned into the knitting pattern, which was published in Petite Purls, Winter 2012, Issue 11.

The 100 snowballs project started shortly after the day we had to reschedule my child's birthday party due to another snowstorm. It seems that snowstorms or ice storms happens with regularity on the day we plan to have the birthday party.  The plan is to celebrate half birthday in the middle of summer with a great snowball battle, and ice cream.

Now the question is how many snowballs are needed for a great snowball battle......
...a few?

...about fifty?

...or 101 snowballs?
I cannot wait for the summer to arrive and see for myself.
Thank you for visiting.
