Have just included a schematic for stitches for the 3 button shawl, and wanted to include the free knitting pattern here. It’s a similar one to a very popular 3 button shawl as featured on the Today Show with Hoda and Kathy Lee long ago.

A very easy knitting pattern, great for beginning knitters,  just a rectangle you can add your own creativity to. Very versatile in the different looks you can get by buttoning the shawl differently, and a most practical knitting project for spring and fall.

As a beginner sock knitter, just this summer, these strawberry socks were a breeze, using a free easy sock pattern I wanted to share with you. If you are wondering what knitting socks is like, how to turn the heel, graft the toe, and afraid to try, don’t be. This is a great beginner sock pattern that still has enough stitch definition, really doesn’t look like a first attempt at knitting socks, does it? Well, it’s the pattern, not the knitter, for sure.

Socks are a wonderful knitting technique, easy to learn, mesmerizing and addicting needlework…. (more…)

We’ve always been big watermelon fans…partly because watermelons are so refreshingly tasty in the summertime, and often, a nickname for our Watterson family.

I do remember sitting on my grandmother’s back steps with the rest of my cousins in the summer time, eating watermelon and spitting the seeds in the garden. Granny always “toted one home”, as she called it, on Fridays, after sewing upholstery in the furniture factory. It’s a wonder there wasn’t a watermelon farm growing in Granny’s backyard. Simple pleasures and great memories.

Baby watermelons

Recently, with a new baby in our North Carolina family, I have knit two new watermelon hats, different from the one I made ten years ago for Baby Charlotte, our first grandchild. Free baby watermelons here, a hat pattern (more…)
