But she’ll share…..sometimes.

About This Dragon

I am an old new mommie. This means that approx. 40 months ago, at the much ripened old age of 43, and 2o years after MY mother, I laid an egg~ and it actually hatched! Surprise!! Yep, I found myself with a life-changing, yet amazing little dragonette in my arms–Gabriel. Gabriel Walter, to be exact. I love to knit and have gone needleless, which means knitting on looms as well as needles. Like many crafters of needles and hooks, I have more than one project in the works. I have a problem following instructions, but I am getting better.

This blog will be dedicated to my yarn crafts, knitting, crochet, loom knitting and fiber arts, in general. I have another blog called ~Dragon’s Yen~ for all my other stuff. I wanted a place just for my crafts. At the last minute I decided to include my other love, CHOCOLATE. I love making hot chocolate mixes and will share some of those here.

Though I can’t envision this to become a really popular blog, please enjoy. I invite any comments and suggestions that you may have. Though I welcome negative responses, as well as positive, I will not tolerate obscenities or behavior that is uncalled for. Please keep in mind that this is a family friendly blog, so don’t write anything you would not want your child to be exposed to. For this, I thank you in advance.

**Please be aware that due to unwanted SPAM, I have set my comments to require that I approve every one. I’m really sorry if this inconveniences anyone, but I’m usually pretty good with keeping abreast of new comments.**

  2. Hi Linda…
    Sorry I just got to your comment. Have you found another spin on your dragon name? Mine is “Dragon Knits”… “This Dragon Knits” does not work? I’ve seen another blog “The Dragon Knits” Good Luck!

  3. Hi there! Ironically I was looking for a picture of some hot chocolate to post on my own blog when I stumbled on your website. I just purchased a “teach yourself knitting” kit just the other day, and your website is fantastic! Makes me really excited to start learning. My grandmother recently passed away, and she would knit and crochet all the time. I want to keep the art going, so I’m teaching myself. I also subscribed to the podcast you mentioned. I hope to continue reading your blog, if you don’t mind. Have a beautiful evening!

  4. Hi Kari… Thanks for stopping by! So glad another hot chocolate lover found my blog. Yes, I’ve got to dig this book back out and start posting recipes again.

    There are tons of knitting tutorials on youtube and other places, to learn knitting and different techniques and stitches you need for projects. The internet is a wealth of information so totally underestimated and underused.

    I’m so sorry to hear about your grandmother’s passing. Mine passed away a long time ago. I have the regret of not getting interested sooner and sharing this art with her while she was alive.

    Oh, there are TONS of knitting and fiber related podcasts out there… something for everyone’s taste. I find that my taste varies with my mood… the music is different on each, and the people are just different, so look around for yourself, too. If you use itunes, that is also a great way to browse podcasts. Just search “knitting” or some other term.

    Yes, please do keep checking back for updates to my blog. I don’t write as often as I used to, but I try.

  5. Hi, just thought I’d let you know, that I too, have been stuck with my own knitting needles. 2 of them in fact. I fell against my project bag, and was afraid to pull them out! They were in pretty deep – couple of inches anyway, but eventually I calmed down and pulled them out thinking they would bleed like crazy, and they didn’t bleed at all!
    Yes I had an up to date tetanus shot. It was painfull, but we sure laugh about it now! It was amazing that I found someone else who has been stuck too! Now I use circular needles……………don’t like those metal ones anymore!
