Floofys, Floofys, Everywhere

If you thought I was never coming back to post anything on my blog I have to confess I thought the same thing. Sometimes life just happens but hopefully my life will once again allow me to check in here more often. I firmly believe that knitting is good for the soul. It's a rhythmic, quiet, individual process that suits me just perfectly. I can't stop making Floofy's. If you read back several posts I got hooked on these while teaching for the Bewitching Stitchers SAGA group in Boston. Lucky for me, I will be going back to teach for the same guild in March and will get to revisit 'Yarns In the Farms' where all this started. The photos are of my two favorite Texas girls (oldest daughter and oldest grand daughter)wearing their birthday Floofy's and my gorgeous, good natured twelve year old wearing hers.


  1. The Floofys and models are all fabulous! I agree, knitting is great therapy even though my results are not nearly as stunning as yours!

  2. Gail,
    They look GREAT! I finally finished my first. Won't be able to be with you at Bewitching Stitchers :-(. Have a great time for me. Cea is planning to take you to a another shop Coveted Yarns. Check them out on Facebook. Karen

  3. I want one! I've wanted to knit my whole life....and it has just not happened....sigh.

  4. Your baby is growing up...and UP :(

  5. I was in your class at the MP School of Art Fashion. I loved every minute of the class and learned so much! I also love your skirt. I am a knitter, also. I think I may have to knit one if I can find any extra free time!

  6. So pleased you were able to post again. I missed your blogs. I love to knit too, and I agree, it is very theraputic! Take good care of yourself.

  7. Hi Gail ~

    LOVE YOUR FLOOFYS!!! Glad to hear you will be back in Beverly for the Yarn Crawl. Hope to see you.
