Glitter SWAP

So after making the Taco SWAP, I needed an easier SWAP.  For I am a strong believer that not all SWAPS must take a lot of time.

This Glitter SWAP came together very quickly, and is a great SWAP for younger girls to make on their own. Continue reading

When life does not go as you planned…

The past few months have been a time in my life, where nothing went as planned.  Over the summer I had high hopes of completing a list of projects.  We had trips planned and knitting projects ready.  But the Lord had other plans for me.

With the changes in my personal life it was necessary for me to take a step back and not blog for a while.  All the while, I have missed my little blog.  Thankfully life is starting to calm down and return to a “normal” pace.  I hope to be back on here shortly with lots of ideas and projects to share with you.

Many of the patterns I have found for slippers involve seaming and I HATE SEAMS!  I was super excited to find a free pattern that did not involve seams and were knit as one solid piece.   Continue reading
