Hand knitted fingerless gloves

I received this beautiful pair of fingerless gloves last weekend! They make me want to re-learn how to knit and make such pretty things again.. I only know how to knit the basic stitches and even then, they don't look as professional. For now, I have these to enjoy! Thanks, E! :)

Lion Brand's Pond Friends Stacking Toy

Happy New Year!

If you have been following this blog, you know that I have been working like a busy bee on a crocheted baby toy. I am SO Happy to announce that it is completed! I worked on this before the baby was born and now that she is here, happy and healthy, she can finally play with this! Or at least look at it... :)

This is called the Pond Friends Stacking Toy (three rings stacked- a bumblebee, a lady bug and a dragonfly) from the Lion Brand Yarn free pattern collection. I actually found this from but now that I have discovered Lion Brand's website and free pattern collection, I will be using them as a direct resource! Joann's website has changed a bit and has made the search for patterns a bit more difficult..
