Latest Knitted Project


I decided to make myself a sweater with yarn I received from a woman my mom use to play bridge with when I was a child. She was an avid knitter and passed away last year leaving me the yarn.

This sweater pattern called for buttons, decided not to do it and would be able to use a pin instead. It also has a neat vent in back. An easy pattern and a very warm wool sweater, thanks Polly!

A gem on the river


It may be made of rocks but Gillette's Castle is a gem located on the Connecticut River. I love this place during any season. We decided to take a walk last week here, cold but such a beautiful site! My daughter's comment was "I don't live in a castle.....I would love a castle!"
