From Ravelry.  Peeking Penguin Boot topper cuffs.  So cute!

 I love LOVE this beautiful star square.  Again from Ravelry.  I like squares.  Easy and portable.  I reckon I am going to have a lot of time to just sit and do nothing while Todd is having his radiation treatments.  These would be a great take along project.

 And I do too!


  1. Good morning Marie,

    I loved the goodies you shared today. I love the boot toppers and that square is divine. We were trying to remember how to make those game squares on Wednesday night. My advice is do not try doing this with a serviette.

    Today I went shopping to match wool so I have a hat at that is at least the same colour as my scarf. It won't be the same pattern. I have a lot to do.

    God bless your day and love to you.

  2. Thanks Suzan. I have a ton of yarn and I need to be using it up! I am looking for great portable projects that I can do while I wait in the hospital! Blessings and love to you too! xoxo

  3. Oh honey what sort of pattern would you like? I have some freebies on Ravelry that I am going to use. I have this to match and I think I will be celebrating differences.

  4. That is such a pretty pattern Suzan, not sure I can afford the yarn to do it or have the skill either, but so lovely. xoxo

  5. It is very easy in theory but it took a while to be comfortable with the stitch changes. The beauty of it all is that you can substitute yarns and needles etc.

  6. Nice, that yarn looks very soft. xo

  7. Another wonderful round-up. Bravo

  8. The cake domes are beautifully done..wish I could crochet!I have no avail.

  9. I have a few old friends who like to knit and got them knitting for a great organization called....Knit for peace....they provide patterns etc if needed but one design the suggested for the older knitters who want something light in their hands was a dressing gown ! Yes knitted in squares...they suggested 8cm squares and I think for a small adult size you need about 130 or so squares...mad that I am I have said I will stitch then all together ! But it would be an idea for you to knit with odd bits of wool the more colours the would be easy to do whilst you are at the hospital Marie.....Thanks as always for today's great ideas xxxx

  10. Thanks Linda! Xoxo

    I love the cake domes also Monique! Xoxo

    Great idea Sybil. Thanks!god bless! Xoxo

  11. I really loved your little story for the day! I am just like these older women. I can't remember if I am coming or going.
    I enjoyed all your finds. I really like the handiwork that you might try to do while being with Todd. I do hope his treatments go well. You both in my prayers. I will take a moment an look up some of your finds; they looked fun. Thanks, for this day of ideas.
    Sending hugs your way!

  12. Thanks LeAnn! Hugs and prayers are always appreciated. Happy that you enjoyed the finds as well. xoxo
