Ahhh Christmas time, I love it. Today I got out the soldering iron and made some special ornaments. They weren't difficult just time consuming but I do like how they turned out. :-)

I've created a little bit of magic for you!

Deliver you business card or a credit card with panache!

I created this fiber art wallet using a real magic trick as inspiration. Quilting Arts liked it so much they asked me to share the magic with their readers. That was a few years ago and since then the magic has been published twice more. You too can have a little bit of magic! The wallet has two compartments to hold your valuables.  Hand crafted using my original pattern published in Quilting Arts Magazine, $30 and free USA shipping if you use the code FATnHAPPY. Send comment to this post with inquires.

I've never written a knitting pattern before but for those who asked how to make the gray cowl that I posted on Facebook here goes...

The Old Gray Cowl, (it ain’t what it used to be) be)

1 skein Gray yarn (I used Caron Simply Soft acrylic in a 4 weight)

Size 8 Circular knitting needles or any that equals 15 stitches = 4 inches

The circumference is apx. 22” and 7” tall.


CO 80 stitches (long tail)


Place marker and join


K first row

then begin pattern,

K5, P5 for six rows (this is unit 1) then switch to

P5, K5 for six rows (this is unit 2).

Repeat this pattern alternating unit 1 and 2 until you are satisfied with the length.  (I had total of 3 unit 1’s and 3 unit 2’s)

Knit one entire row then,

cast off .

I hope that the pattern is clearly written but if not drop me a line.
