It's spring break for us here in Kansas. Last, Friday was absolutely gorgeous; 80 degrees, bright and sunny. Then , in one fail swoop the temperature plummeted on Sarturday and has been struggling to creep back into the 50's. I got the urge to knit. So, I dug out some Suga and Cream cotton and my truty size 7 bamboos and presto!(Well, maybe not that quick, but by Suday night...) I had these two done.
was just wayyy tooo fun! I've needed a kick in the pants for a long
time to get my fiber mojo back and this project was just the thing to do
it. I was wandering Pinterest one day and came across this link in the
DIY section. Out of curiosity, I followed it and was instantly
interested in trying it. So off to Michael's for a quick purchase of
super bulky yarn(Cozy Wool by Loops and Threads) and couldn't wait to
get started. The entire project took under an hour. That is binding off
and sewing the ends of the scarf together. talk about instant
gratification! I'm just sad I didn't find this earlier in the year when I
was searching for Christmas gifts, I think my college-age DD and
friends would have loved getting these in various colors.
So, here is the link Arm Knitting and good luck and have fun!
Wanna share in a little celebration with me? An editor from the magazine Crochet Today contacted me and wants to use a picture of my Joplin Vest in an upcoming issue of the magazine. My non-fiber friends just don't understand how excited I am that the magazine took notice of me and my little blog. Wheeeee!
While losing myself on the internet this Saturday afternoon, browsing blogs and shops at my leisure. I came across this lil' lambie pie. Isn't he cute? I was quite taken by him.I pinned him, favorited him, and did whatever else was necessary, so I could go back and find him and look at him again and again.So this Sunday morn when I awoke, I decided to free-hand a lambie pie of my own:
In other news, I've been working on a simple ripple scarf...the yarn is yummy. I picked this up in the mountains of North Carolina when I was there for a family reunion this summer. I think it was at a yarn store in a town called Blowing Rock.
Be healthy and safe........Click onhere if you want to go the link for the original lambie pie.
.....the hooks, needles, and fiber are still at play!
Here is a seed stitch cowl that has been on my needles for the past month. It was slow going because I chose a size 8 needle but that matched the yarn perfectly. I got this yarn at my LY,S that sadly closed its doors for good over the the holiday break. I picked up about 12 skeins of beautiful yarn each at more than 50% off it's list price. This is a beautiful silk, cotton, baby alpaca blend. Sooo soft and comfy. I am going to love wearing this to work and out and about.
This was a custom order that I did for a gal at work who requested it. I used a free earflap hat pattern then winged the face by looking a pics on Ravelry. For my first "face" hat I thought he came out cute. It looked even better on the baby!!!!
