This is crazy yarn love!!!

Everybody knows about my yarn issues - well check this:

So, a couple of days after The Commish gave me the X5, I had to run out and buy matching yarn. (I feel a scarf or belt coming....) Surprisingly, I found yarn that matches the roundel on my hood. I couldn't beleive it.

I tried this a couple of times with the "Magic Adjustable Ring",

(thank you Donna!) and it was FAB!!!!! This example is the old fashioned "in the ring".

Here's how I did it. (maiden pattern.....I'll try my best)


  • Bernat Softee Baby in Bongo Blue and White
  • Bernat Satin in Ebony
  • G Hook

With White:
Chain 3, sl st to join.

Rd. 1 Ch 3 (counts as first dc); 4 dc in ring. Join Blue when there are 2 loops of last dc left on hook. With Blue: 5 dc in ring. (Repeat joining instructions with white). With white, 5dc in ring. (Join blue). 5 dc in ring. sl st in top of chain.

Rd. 2 With Ebony, sc in every stitch (do not turn). Join with sl st at end of round.

Rd 3. With Ebony, sc in every stitch. Join with sl st. Fasten off.

I guess for you crochet guru out there, it would be just an old fashioned circle motif, alternating colors, and then two rounds of sc on the outside.....

WOW!!!! two posts in one day - well, this warrants it.....For the 1st anniversary, The Commish got me this! Surprised???? Yes!!!!

Now I have to make a scarf or belt to match this one, too!

He is just the sweetest. I love you, honey.

THE best day....

Made it to the one year mark! Me and The Commish are celebrating a whole year of fun, laughs and plain old bliss. (well, despite the Mountaineer losses - ha ha ha).

BTW, I know how long it's been since the last blog. There have been a million things going on, not to mention the crocheting.....but THIS is my newest news!!!

Who knew love could be this blue! Yes, it's fast.

One year ago today, I had grand dreams of the most beautiful, warm, sunny outside Spring wedding.

Here's how the day started.

Here's how it ended.

But, we had the most wonderful day one gal could ask for, and the snow, hey, it's one nobody will forget!
I'm going to share a few of my favorite shots from the memorable event.
This is my Pop right before our entrance....
