Okay, I think I have this blogging thing under control. Let me hope at least.
Hello everyone, it's me. Let me start by welcome to anyone who is coming to see this blog. I started it a while back, but I get confused easily and stopped doing anything with it. Now I am going to try it again.
I'm a knitter, an artist, and a musician, but I'm not earning much money at that, so I work in an art gallery with my dad framing pictures and making prints for artists. We're in a small town, so it's a small business. We've only been doing this for a little while and business has been picking up, so keep your fingers crossed that I can keep doing what I do.

Here's my Print 0' the Wave by eunny yang! It was done with Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill 100% wool fingering weight in Irish Moss.
This is to be gifted to my sister-in-law in Idaho as a late Christmas present.
(Behind me is our beautiful upstairs in our old farm house. we bought the house from my parents who moved into it in the seventies. The upstairs was never fully finished. Being as how in the 1800's farmers didn't have much access to sheet rock and other things that keep bugs out. We are slowly, but surely getting things done. Maybe someday I will live in a finished home!)

These little mites are the stocking and sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I've been making bunches of them for the next Christmas season while I am still in the mood to do so. I think that I made the one on the left while watching 'It's a Wonderful Life'. I just make these out of little scraps of yarn, but I don have to say using worsted weight yarn on size zero's is painful for my hands. It makes such a pretty little stocking though. Oh, the red, white and green ones are made out of a cheap Red Heart Yarn that I can't find anywhere anymore. I would really like some, so if anyone knows how to find it let me know.

Here are some pictures of my place out in the country. Some from this summer when we were redoing our roof and one of our barn and horses.

Our house being re-roofed this summer .

Barney liked going onto the roof to help .

The horses eating hay behind the barn and other buildings. (The barn isn't as old as the rest of the place-it was built in 1918)
Well, not all of the picures line up exactly as I would like them to, but I'll figure it out at some point. I fixed it woo hoo!!!! See ya!
