Crafty “stuff” ….

Not being able to be outdoors brings out the Suzie Homemaker in me every winter. HOWEVER, my “old” knitting addiction showed up again about 1.5 years ago. I admit I’m powerless and I gladly submit to this addiction. 🙂 My stash of yarn has increased dramatically and will – along with my sewing projects- keep me busy.

Here’s what I have worked on during the last weeks.

Currently this cowl is on my needles. Made of Merino and Mohair yarn. I must say I really love knitting it. Got a little ways to go, but it is fun to knit and so lightweight, soft and I am sure it will keep my neck warm this winter.


I have been knitting lots of socks during the last year and also bought a number of books about socks. Knitting them while watching TV relaxes me and keeps my mind off “things”.  This past year a lot of Hundertwasser yarn by Opal has been used, but also others.  They were welcome Christmas gifts for some lucky people this past Christmas.

I did mention I enjoy sewing, too?  Well, here’s a simple beanie I made for a little girl I know. It is reversible jersey and fleece.



Here’s the other side of it.



Here’s a knitted one that made another little girl and her grandmother happy.



Until next time. 🙂
