I won a Giveaway!

Thank you to Deanna
for a Knook

What is a Knook, I hear you say?
Well, it helps people knit
with a crochet hook.
Doesn't that sound cool?

I'm so excited about getting this!
I'm hoping to make little woollies
for my dolls.
 I've never been able to do this before
because I'm a dreadful knitter.

I did learn to knit, once,
about a thousand years ago
before the Beatles broke up.

Everyone had to learn to knit 
at the school I was at
boys and girls, 
and that's obviously something I support.
I just wasn't any good at it!

So, I'm hoping to be better at 
(is that a word?)
I'll keep you posted.

Thank you so much,

Deanna is the go-to girl for 
experiments in dying fabric
and  she was really helpful 
with my tea dyeing .


  1. Congrats on your win. I know you'll make magic with it.

    1. I'm really looking forward to using it! I want to make cute little woollies for my dolls!

  2. you're so welcome and can't wait to see what you make with it for your dolls. i used to teach grade school in NYC many years ago and i used to teach the girls and boys knitting. some of the boys were reluctant until i told them that if they wanted to be doctors, they had to know how to knit so they could make perfect stitches. that's probably not true anymore but i believe it was back then...

    1. That's a good way to get them involved. After all, the skills they learned there couldn't hurt.

      I'm hoping to start with dolly scarves and a cardi.

  3. Congratulations on being a winner and thank you for stopping by my blog. I can knit adult booties but that's it do enjoy it, however. You will probably be knitting in to time at all with the Knook you won. Smiles, Lu

    1. Thank you, Lu! I'm really excited about getting it!

  4. First of all congratulations:)

    How cool is that Knook thing. I can't knit to save my life. Maybe I need one of those.

    1. I'll give it a review, as soon as I get something made. I'm hoping this will be the solution to my all-thumbs approach to knitting!

  5. That sounds like a lot of fun. Congratulations, i know you will enjoy this

    1. Thank you, June! Yes, I can't wait! I'm just thrilled!

    1. Thank you, Brandi! I'm so looking forward to getting this. I hope it cures me of having two hands that are all thumbs

  7. Congratulations on your win! Can't wait to see goodies you knook up for your dolls....My cousin (a boy cousin at that) taught me to knit when I was younger....I managed a few pairs of slippers and that was that.... :o Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

    1. Slippers? I'm most impressed! I have to say, though, you do seem to have a shoe thing emerging...

  8. I met Deanna in my lace class that meets on Tuesdays. I adore her!


Thank you all for the wonderful and supportive things you say! I'm thrilled to read them and I reply to each one.
