And a very Merry 1st of December to you all

Wow can you believe how fast this year has gone by?? I sure can’t. It really is true when meandering through life that the older you get the faster time goes by. When your young you wish you where older those magic numbers of 16 so you can get a learners permit then 18 because then you’re an adult or 21 cause your really an adult then. then with 30 you start making faces already as in AARRRGGGHHH my 30th birthday and so on., I have to say none of the mile marker years have ever affected me that way. I enjoy life as much as I can and live each moment to the fullest.

Whether its being out and about doing things or only being able to sit in a chair and crochet or loom knit.

Enough of the age thing already.

wanted to share how I make the candy canes

5d2ba3a08797__1291086998000 This is the little spool knitter from KK I tried stripes but as small as it is ( skinny I mean) it would be really hard to sew up all those strings from the white and red so I decided to mix red and white , use it as 1 string so I have variegated yarn

eda9e5ce2c81__1291087039000 I twist 2 long pipe cleaners together red ones in this case and once a certain length is reached I push the pipe cleaner inside.

256ef1552462__1291080296000 so this is what it looks like when done.

really easy to make. I think kids would really get a kick out of making these.

just thought I would share

Hugs from a cool 29 * but sunny South Texas
