“Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it does not hurt the untroubled spirit either.”  – Elizabeth Zimmerman



You have found Tammy’s blog.  Let me introduce myself.  I am a cardiac Registered Nurse, mother, grandmother (Gugga), daughter, wife, and animal lover that LOVES to knit.  Actually, I LOVE all things yarn!

My husband calls me a Slab Baby because I was born in the city (on concrete/slab) but have a farm girl soul.   People have often used the word “real” to describe me.  I think that is pretty accurate.  I will talk about anything.  I’m an open book.  I am the daughter of  Joy, from Joyful-Expressions blog – an amazing seamstress.   If any of you know my mother, imagine her personality (perfectionist, highly intelligent, witty, funny,  and a little controlling) combined with a genius, funny, free spirited, hippy, man-child and you have me – Tammy.   (I know! What a combination!  I have them all!  Although, I’m not a genius.)

I am married to a retired Firefighter.  We have 5 children between us and 4 grandchildren.  We live in a suburb of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  We breed Goldendoodles and Aussiedoodles .  We have 5 dogs, several chickens, and one cat.

Let me tell you, I am not a crafty person.  I do not have the attention span and I’m too much of a perfectionist.  But, those knitting needles, and the tactile sensations of those soft, squishy, colorful yarns!   Not to mention, I have an addictive personality.  Give a person like me a hobby that actually puts you in a relaxing trance like state, releases feel good hormones, and BOOM!, I was hooked

This blog is for my love of yarn, knitting, yarn stores, fiber festivals, designers, projects, patterns, and life in general.  I am a cardiac nurse and will be happy to share any of my knowledge and experience with you.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
