YAY! The Scrappy ZickZack Scarf is done! Just a little over 7 months to complete. Which sounds like a LO-O-O-O-O-O-NG time. But. Keep in mind, my busy gardening season at work was in those 7 months and not a lot of knitting gets done during that time.

It's come to my attention that one of my free patterns is no longer available on Dropbox (the site I used to store my PDF's). AND. Actually after checking, NONE of my free patterns are available on Dropbox. Why? No one knows. Actually, to be accurate, someone probably knows, but it isn't me.....

I wanted to pop in and wish everyone a fun and SAFE 4th of July! And. Because it's the 4th, once again, sharing my red, white and blue project bag. A prize for someone who crochets a 12-inch block for JCCF. For more details, see this post.

If you grow your own herbs (and if you don't......you NEED to start!), here's a list of some fabulous ways I've found to preserve your herb harvest. They're easy. The aroma of working with fresh herbs is amazing. And. When you're done you will have some fabulous products to use in your own cooking or to give away as gifts. What's better than that?!?!?

It's the first day of July and it's time to get started knitting or crocheting 12-inch blocks for JCCF. The blocks are used to create blankets to comfort injured rodeo athletes through the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund. This month's color of the month is red, white and blue. I'm not going to lie, these are probably my favorite colors to knit or crochet blocks for JCCF with.
