Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Ready, Set, Go!


This is going to be a quick one, because I’m in my pajamas and need to be out of the house in 25 minutes!

Here’s what I didn’t do over Christmas.  Today is the day to post embroidery.  Kelly posts hers every Wednesday and sucked me into it too!  This is the extent of what I’ve worked on over Christmas.

Love those curls though!

Here’s what we did do.  Between December 18 and December 26, we had four Christmas parties.  This was the best food I’ve eaten in a very long time.

There’s been very little knitting, but I did finish a cowl.

The pattern is Honey Cowl and it’s a freebie.  The yarn is Socks That Rock Heavyweight and it’s a Rare Gem.

Most of the knitting was done at the kids’ Christmas concerts and Dreamboy’s basketball games.  I think I may be making more of these!

The Genius and I did a lot of spinning too.  I’ll have one more post in the next few days about that!  Here’s what I started on last night.

That’s all for now.  I now have 10 minutes to get out the door!

  1. I love your Nice People Nice Things embroidery!! You have inspired me to save up to purchase the pattern and such to do it! I really like the colorway you chose to do it in. I can’t wait to see what you have done for spinning. I’m always in awe of how you transform the puffy braid into neat and tidy yarn! Thanks for sharing! Hope you made it out of the house in time.

  2. I love your Honey Cowl! I’ve made two and am on the third! Good to see you again! Happiest New Year.

  3. Happy New Year!!! I love the cowl and can’t wait to start mine!!
