H is for Hard

Blogging every day is hard.Thinking up something new to talk about with life getting in the way of crafting is extremely hard. Wah wah, now that I got that out of my system I can move on and get this done.

H is also for Hearts

This post was supposed to be about Simple Stockinette Hearts. Whoever named this pattern must have been quite a better knitter than I am because this pattern took me several times to get it correct. I am still not sure I can see hearts. There was lots of knitting, pulling out and cursing. I kept loosing count though that was probably because the kids were running amuck. I also felt rushed, to get the sample done so I can write about it and I guess I don't work that well under pressure. Anyway here it is.

 H is also for Hat

I want to learn  how to knit a hat. During Queen Elizabeth the First's Reign she mandated that everyone should wear a white wool cap on Sunday. She did this to support the knitting guilds that she held so dear. My family does Renaissance recreating and he wants a cap like that so i thought it would be nice if I could knit him one.

Follow your craft,


  1. I didn't know that about Queen Elizabeth I and the hats! How interesting!

  2. oo I see the hearts that's cool. cool fact about the hats too. I knew she was a knitter though! lol. You're doing great posting lady keep up the awesome work :) I'm still catching up lol

  3. Hi, there! Great post... so interesting about Q E. I never knew she was a knitter. Congrats to you on conquering the Hearts pattern. I can crochet,and embroider, and sew. I also quilt. Never did master knitting, though. Best regards to you, Ruby
