It's never to late to learn...

It's been a few days and I've missed blogging, but between work and the new year coming in full force I have  to admit to being a bit distracted.  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are ready to grapple with new ideas, creative endeavors and some mighty fine stitching.  One of my resolutions every year is to learn something new about subjects I'm interested in - like knitting!  It's never to late to learn a new stitch, technique or approach to your knitting.  Take some time to discover something new about yourself through your knitting experience and don't forget to share it with us. 

Here's a cool tutorial from Kathleen Cubley, the editor of Knitting Daily called Better Buttonholes that takes the mystery out of a simple way to embellish your knit projects.  Don't be afraid of that button!  Embrace it.

Visit Devin's Bookstore for signed copies of her books.

Yesterday I started reading a book by Devin O'Branagan called Glory, The Legend Begins. I couldn't put the book down. Normally, I lack concentration these days for reading, but this intriguing story really kept my attention.  Here is the perfect description taken from the book: 'Twilight meets The DaVinci Code...'  Visit Devin's website for the full  scoop.  Whenever I find a book that rocks, I share.  I just can't keep it to myself (lol) especially when there is a main dog character named Hallelujah...same goes for a cool knit/crochet pattern or something funny the Yorkie clowns do around here.

Knitting update: The chemo cap continues to grow and I will have enough to ship out soon. Yay!

Happy knitting in 2012 and beyond...
