Antique Store Find

Our latest Antique Shop find.

A Duncan Phyfe Bed.

This bed is fit for a Princess.

It is our Granddaughters bed when she stays with us.

I LOVE it!!!!


I have finished the Baktus scarf and I LOVE it. Baktus is a garter stitch scarf, that is named after a character in a Norwegian children's classic novel. Any yarn and any needle size can be used to knit this scarf. You can knit it as large or as small as you want to. I used size 8 knitting needles and Caron Simply Soft paints, in the color Oceana. This scarf is going to be a gift. The pattern for this scarf is here

Hunting hat

My Son enjoys pheasant hunting. The hunters are to wear blaze orange so that I other hunters can see them. This is a basic 2 x 2 rib knit hat for him. I knit it nine inches long so that he could cuff the hat up, to keep his ears warmer.
