Someone once said -

"There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for the people who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living." Amen

What Not To Crochet?

What is The Halo Effect on Yarn????


What is the "halo" you keep hearing about? Halo is simply the name given to the "fluffiness" of the yarn or finished piece, such as in commercial Mohair yarn or a finished Angora Sweater. What makes up the "halo" are the tiny, almost microscopic hairs that have worked one end out of the twist and thus creates a fluffy, halo like appearance. Don't be fooled by the initial appearance of your Keepsake Yarn. More often than not, when you receive your keepsake yarn, it will look quite similar to commercial yarn. Handling of your keepsake yarn or finished product results in separating the finer hairs from the main twist. As you work with your keepsake yarn, you will start to see the halo emerge. The more you touch, pet, wash or handle your keepsake yarn, the more the halo will grow. Anxious to get the full halo on your finished piece? Dry cleaning your finished product will bring out the halo to it's fullest, natural extent. Please see How to use Your Pet Yarn for more information on how to plan for the halo on your finished project.

Up in the Snow at the Cabin

We went up to the cabin this weekend. It was cold...burrr in the low 30s and the water pipe burst and had to be fixed. There was not a lot of snow, but old Foxy had her sweater on to keep her warm....

See the smow out back and in the front drive way. And then the other mountain photos is how it looks to drive up there...beautiful..only 2 hours from us...

Spooky Times and Ravens! But I got my Wand

I think now that I am at Hogwarts that the House of Ravenclaw has sent over their spys...just look at them all congregating around my dorm...I'm not sure but they remind me of that movie "The Birds" don't they? Remember the one by Alfred Hitchcock? It was a terror in its time. When they hung around gawking and making those awful "caw" sounds....Its a wee bit scary....but the ones now are across the lawn from me and gathering by the dozens, see them in the trees?


I was over at Dragon Alley and tried to adopt a pet dragon but was unable to??? Anyone know why? I did take a stoll in the park and sat on tehbench and then took a look at the stream, it was nice there...

I got my Wand today.....its a Cherry one....

"Cherry wands are not only exceptionally beautiful, but also very useful. These wands excel in Divination spells, and the bearer often has an innate talent for diving things or else a strong intuition."

Wood type: cherry
Length: 15½ inches
Core: Dragon Heartstring

get your own wand!
