Hello Friends, 

The summer is coming to an end and the kids are going back to school and we are either busier than ever trying to get everything completed for the kids or looking for new projects. This year seems we will all need to be a bit more economical in our projects and gifts. The money is not as easy to come by as it was and you will need either a very specialized product or a rather inexpensive one. 

This is true for both selling and gift giving. This year I believe everyone will be getting a handmade (remember bread is homemade) gift this year. There are many patterns on the site and should cover everyone from the baby to the dog.

Knitting or crochet, with needles, hooks, machine or loom, there is plenty to choose from. You will find toys, hats, afghans, mittens, sweaters, clothes for dolls, babies and the dogs.

This year lets give from the heart, not the wallet and have lots of fun doing it. Money may be tight but the ideas and patterns are free.



 Gift Ideas

Free shawl knitting patterns

I love shawls, I always carry one with me to church no matter what the season. In the summer the air conditioning is too much for me and in the winter the cold weather affects my shoulders. They are also fun to make and give.
