About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

Chick with Four Sticks

That is probably what I will have to rename my blog if I continue keeping company with my knitting needles, cable needle and crochet hook. So far this afternoon moving those sticks is all I have done.

Without further ado, here is a picture of my newest knitting project .... Doggie Sweater .... Although the yarn looks purple like my capelet, it is really an old country blue. I think that the lighting for the photo is bad and that is why the color is off.

As you can tell, I have a penchant for cables. Okay..... I am addicted to cables. I really enjoy creating cables and I find this sweater a wonderful process piece where I am able to sharpen my basic cable skills. My hope is to have the sweater finished by Wednesday so my handsome doggie can model it on New Year's Eve. Once it is finished I will steam press myself as it is a small clothing item.

Happy stitches...........
