I am wife to Jeff, homeschool mom to 8, a knit and crochet teacher and totally addicted to knitting, crocheting and other fiber arts. After knitting, crocheting and sewing my own clothing from the age of 10 on, I studied textiles & clothing in college. That lead me to 25 years of custom dressmaking and alterations work, while sewing, knitting and crocheting for my growing children. I have worked in the yarn industry for the past 3 years and have been designing my own knitting patterns. Visit my web site at Find me as DeniseInIowa on

Mail Call!

The postman brought a big box of yarn from Smiley's today. I got Phentex Chunky to make a sweater for me. It is a turquoise which is really a different color for me. I was afraid that I might get tired of it eventually but since the yarn was not very expensive it will be alright.

There is a big pile of Red Heart Shetland Chunky in a dark blue to make a sweater for DH. I am planning on trying that Interweave Knits pattern with the Fair Isle design. He wanted some wool in it but it had to be machine washable too.

The purple Lily Elite Cotton is for a top. I won't need cotton tops this winter but it was such a good price for a nice cotton yarn that I couldn't pass it up. In fact I wish I could have bought several colors.

I ordered the Red Heart Tweed just because it is so pretty! I am sure I will find a use for it too. There are a couple of crocheted sweater patterns that I have been looking at trying. I think this may work for something like that.

Now I think I will have enough yarn for those long, snowy, winter days that I know are coming!
