{PHFR} Winter Edition

Linking up with the ladies at Like Mother Like Daughter

I started this post on January 29, and never finished it! I don't know what's up with me and blogging these days; it doesn't seem to be much of a priority, even though I generally enjoy sharing. I guess life is busy and I have other priorities. Say hi and tell me what's up with you!


Pretty yarn that I got for Christmas is turning into a pair of socks for me. Although, halfway through the second sock they seem to be on hiatus! Something else caught my eye. You know how it is! This yarn, though, is really weird; I've never seen yarn like this that is a completely different color in the sunlight. The blues turn into a greenish gray, so I'm not actually sure what color they are. What do you see? Of course, this is an indoor picture so they probably look blue.


I was having a bad day when I started this, so I sat down with my remote control, Netflix, and my new pompom maker. Pompoms are fun and good for the soul. ;-)


Pip wanted a Beardo for his birthday, so everyone had to try it on. Katie wore it best. 


I love this wool mitten. Did I show it to you when I made it (them)? Well, I lost one at the March for Life in DC. I had them on over my fleece gloves, but if I wanted to use my phone, I had to take off the mitten. Did that several times, and somehow I lost one. I'm pretty sure I have some more yarn, so I should be able to make another. They were really nice and warm. :-(

Our winter seems to be almost over. Lots of 60+ degree days in the forecast. I may not need my wool mittens much more for a while.


  1. whoa!!! You've been working up a storm....and I so understand that stepping away from the blog, and the next thing you know----it's been weeks. I'm blaming instagram. I should just blame myself, I think!!!! :) What are you going to do with all the pompoms? (I make some stuff just this a just-because-project?)

    1. The poms were a just-because project! Something fun and cute. I need some in spring colors, though....

  2. A knitting post! And pompoms. Which are a lot of fun :)

  3. purdy knitting...your pom-pom's are beautiful....well, everything is beautiful!!!!


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
