September 2015- I know a little man who loves Minion's.  After checking on-line for patterns for an afghan and mittens, I created my own. (sorry I just crocheted and didn't write anything down)  
I found this little poster at the craft store to use as a model to follow... I'm not up on all the features of these lovable little guys

Knitting down South- Biltmore and a train ride through the Smoky Mountains

The Biltmore Estates is a wondrous place.  Visited at the end of May (2016) and found myself in a truly beautiful part of the United States.  The amazing structure, gorgeous landscapes and beautiful gardens..

Smokey Mountain Railway Ride
We took a train ride through the Smokey Mountains, stopped to enjoy the river...and sat to knit a bit.

Memories of Spain

So the plan was to make a chevron tube scarf, 
but after knitting 40 or so rows, it just didn't work for me.

The colors represent the beauty of Spain.  The yarn was purchased along my travels in Spain and Portugal during April 2016. All 100% fine cotton, fine gauge.
