Link Love: Knitterly projects, Disneyland, and Remembering an Old Friend

For Link Love this week Diane at Crafty Pod has tasked us with going through our archives and finding our popular posts.

Wee pumpkin pattern – Harvest and Halloween fun in a simple little pattern. And a peek for things to come. I plan to go all out on Halloween this year.

2.

Cheater’s Posole Recipe – Comfort food in our house can be easy. This one didn’t get a lot of comments, but it got a ton of views thanks to its acceptance to the foodgawker website.

The details inside the Happiest Place on Earth – This was my nephew’s first trip. He’s an old pro now and I’m feeling the urge to visit Disneyland again.

Knitters were thrilled that we were ahead of the game with the popular cowl patterns. Now we’re doubling and tripling them up and calling them “infinity scarves.”

Handknit hand-dyed hat

I started to cry when I saw that this was one of my popular posts. I’m so grateful to have this picture of me and my wonderful friend’s dog “Boo.”¬†She was my introduction to Australian Cattle Dogs and wicked smart. Although blind, she would gently herd us when we went for a walk. Always keeping count of her people. Boo has since passed away and will always have a special place in my heart.

Crochet – If I can do it, you can too.

Crochet cup

It is possible that this little project has hooked this knitter on crochet. I was trying to figure out making rounds using the “magic circle” for simple coasters and forgot to increase.

Slugs on the refrigerator has the tutorial post I was working from.

I held two strands of kitchen cotton together and used an “E” hook.

The bright blue and white of the kitchen cotton was so cheery, I just kept going.
I will probably use it for pencils and pens, if I can keep the cats from playing with it.
