Here is a place where you can enjoy listening (reading) about all my adventures as a lefty in a righty world. It is not easy to do this at times but I have managed to do it for over 60 years. Crafting is probably the hardest thing to do as a lefty since all directions are printed for righties. I have managed to adjust and will be more than happy to share my crafts with you thru pictures and writings. Enjoy!

As promised I did take pictures of the 'winter wear' that I made.
This is from a Chemo hat pattern. My niece wanted a skull cap and this was so feminine that I just couldn't resist it. I love the lace on the bottom of it. It is made with Lorna's Laces and the color is Huck's Room.
These are called Peek-a-boo mittens. They are really clever in the fact you can just pop your four fingers out of the mitten without the help of either hand or your mouth. You can also pop them back in without any assistance. It is nice when you have your hands full of children, purse, grocery sacks, etc and need to have some extra dexterity for something like your keys.
Finally is the scarf. It is called Column of Leaves and was the first lace project that I had attemped on anykind of a large scale. I loved doing it and will probably do more scarve in this pattern.
