You shall be called.....Herman!!!!!

Just look at that face, just look at it!!!!! Isn't that the cutest little feller you ever saw? I gotta have one, I'm gonna have one, I'm gonna have three!!!! One for my Emma Belle, one for her little sister, Ava Simone, and one to be my special little friend and he shall be called Herman!!!! And he shall go with me everywhere. He will ride in my truck on the dashboard, at other times he will travel safely in my knitting bag and at night he will be the last little face I look at before I go to sleep and the first thing I see when I awake. He is my soulmate.
Kits are available at Enchanted for your very own little friend. What you gonna name him?

Spring Has Sprung!!!!

Today marks the Spring Equinox at which point, no matter what the weatherman tells us, we can officially proclaim that Spring Has Sprung!!! Flowers are springing up everywhere!!!! In my garden I've discovered some gorgeous daffodils, hyacinths and some kind of little "airport runway lights blue" star-like flowers.

Spring has sprung in the land of Enchanted Yarn & Fiber as well. Inside and out!!!! I spotted some beautiful crocus growing in RoLynn's garden just this week. Is it crocus....crocuses or crocii? :) Anyways, the most exciting thing to me is how Spring has sprung inside. The season was Enchantingly jump started March 12th & 13th with the flower needle felting class. The class was such a success I'm sure there will be a repeat in the future. Having never needle felted before I was somewhat intimidated but I found the art is extremely enjoyable, easily learned and very versatile. Look at these gorgeous pieces needle felted by several of the class participants.


Be sure and come in to see all the new Spring yarns, patterns and goodies. Beautiful color is popping up everywhere.

Flower Power!!!!

Flowers are hot this year!!!! You see them everywhere. Not the in the dirt, growing kind. I'm talking about the lapel, felted bag, hair decor, choker wearing kind. And of course, RoLynn and Ashley are right on queue with the needle felting flower class being offered this month. I've been doing some research on needle felting, something I haven't done yet, and this is really a very versatile art. You can needle felt on just about anything. And it can be flat, 2-D and 3-D. I even saw where a lady purchased an extra large man's sweater at a Goodwill Store, shrunk it by felting it, cut open the front to make a felted cardigan and then needle felted some gorgeous designs on the front. How cool!!!! To get an idea of what will be taught in the class here are a few pics and here is a link to the newsletter with all the class info plus a listing of the other awesome classes being offered.

I've completed the February Project for the Christmas Club. It is adorable, a Biscuit Blanket to keep your biscuits (the edible kind), scones and such warm while serving. I love the pattern and plan to make many of these sweeties.

What or what is going to be the March Project??????? I'm filled with anticipation!!! And no, I don't know what it is, at least at the posting of this post I don't. Plus, if I did know and if I told you I'd have to kill you or something......maybe poke you with a knitting needle till you cried UNCLE!!!!!
