I am super excited to announce we have moved to our very own home!! GGmadeit.com is now live!! Of course I want you all to come over for a visit and check out the new place. I have a give-away running, I have a new logo, I have t-shirts and mugs! Woo Hoo I am super excited. The give-away is a tote bag with my new logo on it and all you have to do to enter is subscribe to the blog with your email. Who knows that tote bag may even be full of yarn…you don’t want to miss out. I can’t seem to find the words to explain the level of excitement that I am currently experiencing. I will say this, never ever give up on your dreams, no matter what!
I am going to leave this up for a week or so to give everyone time to come on over to the new location. I’ll see you all over there.
Knit on my fiber friends…knit on
I know I am not alone when I say I had seen this around the internet but wasn’t quite sure why I would want it. You also know that I am your knitting product pusher/enabler. If it’s out there I will find it and
temp you, I mean make you aware. That is just what I do and you know you love it! Hahahahahahahahaa

One Friday while cleaning off my dresser (how does all that stuff get up there?) I came across an old bangle that I just refuse to throw away. I took a moment to think about why I didn’t wear it anymore and the main reason was it didn’t LOOK good anymore. All the time it spent rolling around in my sea of jewelry had taken it’s toll as it looked rusty and just unattractive. Continue reading “YARN: What to do with leftovers…”
That is actually a question, one I ask myself often. How do you schedule your knitting/crocheting projects? Do you plan or just go for it? Do you have a craft book with a calendar? Do you get the yarn then the pattern or vice versa? All of these questions require planning, if you ask me. So a planning we will go, hi ho the merry..wait wrong song..but you get my point Continue reading “How to schedule your knitting projects”
I know that is a dumb statement but when you come across an ad for handbags and all you see is the knitwear. Houston, I think we have a problem! I am about to attack your senses ok?
