I am a wife, mom and grandma to four. Three grown kids all on their own and one 12 year old left to raise. I'm an avid crocheter and knitter. I crochet more than knit but have been knitting more and more.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comHere is my newest knitted project, It is a pattern I got off the Lionbrand site that called for mobias Mohair yarn, unforunately I am such a cheapskate I couldn't justify spending $7.67 a skein (pattern calls for 3 skeins) to make this.  Instead I substituted Red Heart Symphony yarn (3.67 a skein) and using double strands thoughtout completed it in two days..   I love the way it feels, so soft and really light.

Image hosted by Photobucket.comI crocheted this scraf using Caron simply soft embroidery  yarn.  I just loved the colors when I saw it so I had to make something with it.  I  used my crochet patterns book and just came up with a pattern.. The bad part is you can't see the pattern from this pic but it is so cool.
