Hand Knitting

Felted Clogs knit with Lion Brand Fisherman wool yarn.

I am going to make Peekaboo Mitts by Pensive Frog Designs for my grandson. 

Machine Knitting

Socks for my friend, Mike. I used Lana Grossa Meilenweit “MEN” yarn color 1609. I sprayed them with Febreze

I forgot to talk about the second pair of socks I made on my Legare. Probably because I ended up frogging those also.


Watch the Kamalini Trentham machine knitting videos on YouTube.


I cook corn on the cob unshucked in the microwave for 2 minutes per ear.

I boil green beans in plenty of salted water for five minutes and then I sock them in ice water to stop the cooking.
