Grace Knits a LOT!
Knitting mostly but other crafts, too (crochet, cross-stitch, scrapbooking) and life in general.

Felt like blogging today
I haven't blogged for some time...but for some reason I felt like it today. I am still knitting up a storm...knit a Dale sweater that I can't wait to wear this winter and a lacy bactus shawl that I use in my heavily AC'd workplace. I have a new nephew (SO CUTE) and went on several vacations. I am also reading a ton, thanks to finally utilizing my public library again! I just finished Mockingjay (last book of the hunger games trilogy by Suzanne Collins) and am reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (totally gripping). I think I will try to blog again more regularly; but who knows? Maybe I will feel like it, maybe not.

Blogging from my phone
Just testing blogging from the phone. Blogging has been a little thin on the ground...I havebeen busy, but it was mostly choosing to knit rather than blogging. Once I havefigured out how to upload photos, I will post some of my projects.

So proud to be an American right now...to be a part of this historic night, what a rush. I love being part of the process. I hope that we can move towards cooperation and healing instead of divisiveness and fear.
Rock the vote.

Hello? Is anyone still reading this?
Hi! Sorry I have been MIA for so long! Work this summer was especially busy and I took several vacations.
I went to Jackson Hole, WY:
The Watersmeet, Michigan (in the UP):
And I did a little knitting...you can see most of my projects on my flickr photostream or on Ravelry.
My latest thing has been scarves. That I try to knit from the stash. But I bought yarn yesterday at Fiddlehead Yarns to make this scarf:
This is the My So Called Scarf and I knit it up in about 5-6 hours. One skein, baby! You can see my specs on Ravelry. I did add a button hole so I can make this snug for the winter. I may need to buy more of this yarn to make some for gifts! Awesome!
My friend Elizabeth recently posted a knitting "Bucket List" using yarn in her stash...so here it goes for the yarn in my stash (and check out the cute hat she made that I designed!):
- Snowflake in Cedarwoods (square) shawl
- EPS fair isle yoke cardigan
- Hidcote Garden shawl
- Jaali Sweater
- colorwork mittens of my design--still thinking about this one and since I have so much sock yarn, I have a ton of variety to choose from
- knee high socks
- February Lady Sweater
- Tomten-child size
And I still have yarn left over! I am pretty sure that I can add to this list...I just got the new Mason Dixon book and there are some great patterns!
Thanks for reading and I promise that I will not wait 5 months to blog again! I have some great autumn foliage shots that I want to share.

Finished some socks
I just finished my second sock of Child's First Sock...just in time to start summer o' the socks! Sorry so sparse in the blogging; I had to go to NY for work and am now getting ready to go on vacation to WY!!! If I have time I will take pics of the socks and other things in progress, but it may have to wait until I get back after the 4th of July. WHOOWEE for SotS!
