Becareful when walking on the sand here in Cocoa Beach... Stay out of the dunes... There are alligators crawling around... Who would have thought they would be near the Ocean ???

These Alligators were made using Carons Simply Soft in a Dark Sage green...The Pattern is from Morehouse Farms....
I put some yellow buttons in the holes for the eyes!!!
Pretty Neat Scarf, Huh ???

These Little Cuties are the Best Baby Shoes I have seen.. I love the way the straps criss cross so that the tiny shoes will have a much better chance of staying on the babies feet!!!
The Pattern is from Saartje's Blog http://www.saartjeknits.nl
I want to Thank You Saartje for sharing this wonderful pattern.. It is so well written ..easy to understand.. and the result is just Adorable!!!
I used Patons..Look At Me DK Yarn for these and a size 4 needle... They came out to hopefully fit My Five Month Old Grandaughter.. Samantha!!! .. Yes.. I am SURE that they will !!!

This Gadget was created by My Friend Mary....... Yes.. Its a toilet roll holder glued on to a tile !!!.. We also wound the yarn around a plastic tube... I used an aidia tube that I cut and then slit down the middle to fit on my Ball Winder...
Now.. The main use for this is while using laceweight yarn or fingering yarn... You know when you are knitting and the yarn twists sometimes and ends up in a tangled mess.. Well.. This unwinds from the outside while you are knitting and ... No More Tangles !!!!
Great Job Mary... Maybe you should get a patent for this !!!

My Daughter April said there were no new posts .. I think she wanted to know what I was working on for Samantha :)
So here is The Baby Albert Coat from Knit Stitch Book...
April bought the yarn while she was visiting me last Month.... At first I was unsure of adding the green yarn that she chose.. But but I like it... This is a Christmas Sweater for Samantha but seeing a close up view of the yarn knitted up she will be able to wear this even past Christmas.. The Yarn is Pinguoin and its really nice and soft... It knits up to a tweedy kind of fabric...
