~ woolly bits of joy~


my new found
love
yarn 
just look at these cute little balls 
that fill my bowl
don't they warm your heart?
and I don't even knit
so many sweet little things you can make
I will show you next post what I have been up to
I call them "woolly bits of joy" 
my youngest daughter is smitten too....she took the plunge
picked up some knitting needles 
and is teaching herself to knit
she has been at it for hours

make sure you 
find some little bits of 
joy
today
something that will warm your
 heart
and give you that
 happy fuzzy feeling

There may be nothing beer in the world than a hank of wool yarn :) I LOVE the stuff from Marr Haven, it still smells like sheep!

It's me said...

Oh Koralee,

You have a way of making one small object the CENTER of attention like no other...you CROWN a beautiful object, a friend, a thought with such sweetness and glory. I LOVE YARN and even just having little balls neatly set in a pretty bowl is wonderful!

DID YOU GET YOUR HYDRANGEAS????? Keep that back rested dearest; even with my gardening yesterday, I feel great this morning...my hip is responding to these exercises I am doing!

HAPPY DAY! Anita

Bring Pretty Back said...

Koralee, I know! I look at yarn and I think it is just so pretty and cozy. I would love to learn to knit! There is no way I could teach myself though! Kudo's to your daughter!
Have a pretty day!

Oh my goodness....soft, nubby, wooly yarn is one of my weaknesses, too...I have far too much of it! I love making afghans, scarves...and I just made a hobo bag while at my Mom's this summer...very addicting!

Looking forward to seeing your newest creations, dear Koralee!

Hoping your weekend is delightful in every way, my friend...

When I see fuzzy balls of yarn I immediately think of cold weather outside and being inside enjoying the warmth of the fireplace and working on a warm and fuzzy project.

xo,

Suz said...

They do just warm the "cockles of my heart." I have wondered for a long time where that phrase came from. Do you know, Koralee?
Warm snowballs says it well!
Big hugs,
Suz

Martina said...

Such soft, pretty colors! I don't knit but want to make pompoms! Have a fun weekend!

The Garden Bell said...

HIP-HIP-HOORAY... these's a true blessing today.

I have been wishing for soooooo long that you would wander into a yarn shop. I can't wait to see what those busy hands are up to there. Please, please, do have a show and tell.

It's so good to hear that your daughter is learning to knit; it's such a beautiful and practical artform. I am sure that she will make many cheerful creations!

Catherine said...

And such pretty colors! It almost makes me wish it was cold out so I could wear some mittens!!!

Ok... not really... ;)

Happy Weekend Koralee!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
So glad to stop by and visit ~ it's been a while {I was at my father's ~ with an extended stay there to replace his ole' fridge}

Your little fuzzy wuzzy woollies are soooo cute!
I've started crocheting again...trying to make little granny squares for a Christmas project.
How fun for Sydney to pick up knitting! I'll bet some fun scarves are in her future :o)

So happy you're having fun nesting in your new home ♥ so wonderful to dream and see things happen!
Happy weekend dear ♥

Hi Koralee, lovely post. Teresa

Sewn With Grace said...

My fingers have been itching to knit lately. It seems that once August rolls in, I find myself looking at cardigan patterns and missing the slow repetition of moving knitting needles. I'll have to go to the yarn shop tomorrow, Koralee ~ you've inspired me! :)

Willow's Quiet Corner said...

I have been teaching myself to knit also! I find it much more difficult than crocheting, but that just may be because my mother taught me to crochet at a very young age so I am more comfortable with it. That photo makes me want to start a new project! Great post as always!

francis said...

Oh that reminds me of my first flat .
Everywhere baskets with all kinds of fabrics and wools and stuf ....
Now most of my materials live in boxes ....
You are so right to give them a place where they can be seen ....that makes yoy think what you could make ....
I LOVE TO KNIT and just received a magazine with only baby-things to knit all very simple .
Cannot wait to make something for little Eva .
She is so adorable Koralee.She has the sweetest smiles and makes little sounds that
surpasses all you've ever heard .....
Have a wonderful weekend

Kris said...

I would LOVE to learn how to knit. I really wish I knew how to make stuff. haha

Not Just a Waitress said...

those spools are almost too pretty to unwind to actually knit with!! ;)
i've been thinking lately i should learn to knit because i love scarves and blankets so much AND to keep my hands busy so i don't snack at night!!!!! :) :) :)
happy weekend, koralee :)

Pretty colours!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh dearest, I SO know how you feel...but we have EACH OTHER....THOUSANDS OF artists and dreamers and human hearts that need each other to REMEMBER that we are NOT ALONE. That makes the journey up the mountain much more attainable...not easier, but within reach...eventually. YOU ARE SUPER! Are you gonna be out in that garden today? In the new home, sprucing it up?

WHATEVER YOU DO, do it knowing that we love you! Anita

Marilyn said...

Can't wait to see what little bits of joy you have been creating. Thanks for the reminder to look.

so pretty. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them...
I'm hopelessly and predicatably addicted to crochet - and it's fairly time consuming. Need to wean off soon....and get a life back.
love as always
