Huntley, IL (August 28, 2012)— Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens... With the holidays just months away, knitters are busy creating their favorite holiday projects for their friends and loved ones. But what do you get the knitter on your list? (Or get yourself if you are the knitter!) After This Row is a row tracking system created by Joyce Garris, an avid knitter from Huntley, Illinois. Garris created this time-saving knitting tool so she could enjoy her favorite hobby while raising her busy children. "As much as I tried to get right back to my knitting, sadly, it would sometimes be days, even weeks before I picked it up again," Garris said. "As I put my knitting away I would tell myself to remember where I left off, but most often I didn’t have a clue as to where I was when I last put down my project."
Priced affordably at just $1.99, the After This Row project sheets are designed to relieve the guesswork for knitters returning to their knitting projects. Whether they have put it down for a few hours, a few days or a few weeks, knitters will know exactly where they left off, almost as if they never put their projects down. Project e-books are also available for $4.99.
Three knitting tools are available to keep knitters on track:
  • Scarves, Shawls and Shawlettes
  • Socks, Leggings and Stockings
  • Sweaters and Coats
To purchase and download After This Row project sheets and e-books, visit Gift certificates are also available. It's a perfect stocking stuffer for the knitter in your life!

A Good Summers Read

"Defiant" because a person had to be defiant to be able to stand amid the wreckage of her life and instead of shaking a fist, picked up a hammer.

"Sometimes you have to lose everything
before you realize whats really important." The Beach Trees by Karen White

I made a change this summer and decided to take a little time each day to read. A refurbished chaise, a little vitamin D and a good summer read. This was exactly what was missing.

Thank you Karen White and Jude Deveraux!

Some may call this a "guilty pleasure" but you must be defiant and take some time alone to re center yourself. It helps everyone in the long run. Read more :)

I Love This Bag!

This is one of my favorites! This was an idea I came up with when I was sitting in a doctors waiting room and a woman pulled her knitting out of a brown paper bag. The first thought I had was, creative people need to have something lovely to carry their hard work in, and it needs to make them smile!
The Single Project Bag :)

Starting the Week Off Right

 Expecting the best from yourself brings out the best in others in some strange way,
 and when everyone is at their best, the results can only be positive.

Up and Running

What's your goal?
Yes! Creating this blog site was a bit of a challenge and sometimes frustrating.
But what a feeling once you see it up and running with all the little gadgets working.
Time for a happy dance!
When you like something you created, it gives you the music to start your dance.
I created this painting about this time last year and I haven't painted since.
I need to change that.
New Goal: make the time to paint, draw or just doodle.
Create something that starts your music.
