A little encouragement.

I keep searching without any luck, so this is just a reminder how long the search has been going on.

Maybe it will bring me a little luck.

A hat for Little Miss May.

I was asked to knit a hat for the most adorable Little Miss May. I knew it had to be as precious as she is, so I had my work cut out for me.

So after a little searching for the perfect pattern (we had a picture of what the hat was to look like) I bought the yarn and started knitting.

I love the way it came out, I hope it's perfect for Little Miss May.

Triangle Lace Shawl

This was my first attempt at a triangle lace shawl. I've always loved them, but was always a little bit intimidated by them. It was the shaping and the lace that scared me, I was afraid, it wouldn't come out right.

But guess did.

I'm not a fan of knitting from charts, so I knew I had to find the perfect pattern, something that had instructions written out. I found Traveling Woman and I liked the stockinette with the lace border, it was really pretty.

I used some pretty sock yarn and this is my finished product.

As much as I love pumpkin, I love Food Netork more.

Again watchinc Food Network, Down home with the Neeleys, they were making a usual southern bar-b-q they had a wonderful recipe for Sweet Potato Cookies and figured since people make sweet potato pie, instead of pumpkin pie, why couldn't I change up the cookies and make pumpkin cookies.

So I did!!

And they came out wonderful. I just replaced the pureed sweet potato for pureed pumpkin. All I can say is yum.

The only small snafu that I had was, I didn't have any powdered sugar, so they were bare, and I acutally think they tasted great even without the glaze.

The making of a hockey season.

The 10th season of the Bridgeport Soundtigers the top AHL affilate of the New York Islanders starts in one week and one day, but before they can start they season they need a little ice.

So here it is, the ice that will bring us laughter and tears, blood and pain, a hopefully a Calder Cup winning championship season.
