YIKES ....does time ever fly by? I can't believe it has been so long since my last post. Let me just say things are crazy-busy around here 24/7! I have been so sad because I just don't get to my craft room any more to do any sewing! I watch my two grandchildren during the week; let me just say the youngest is two! Need I say more! Since I haven't been sewing ...the to do pile of quilts is stacking up! In lieu of sewing, I've opted to knit lately. At least while watching a two
year old I can get a few knit stitches in here and there!
Here's a peak of a few of the items I've been working on!
I've finally finished this shrug for my daughter. Wow, was it ever a project. It's knitted with Noro Silk on size 2 needles. For all you non-knitters ....size 2 needles a very small!
Here is the second project ...finally completed. And, yes it's for my darling daughter! It's the Wonderful Wallaby Sweater by Cottage Creations. It a great pattern ...sort of like a really neat sweatshirt, only a bit more stylish! There is a great kangaroo pocket in the front.
And ....a great hood! One more item finished!
Here are a few items I'm currently working on now!
Once again ...an item for darling daughter! I do believe she is a lucky lady to be getting all these hand knit pieces! I've started a pair of anklets in a marvelous hand dyed sock yarn. Of course ...they have to be pink!
I'm using this new book I purchased. It has a wonderful assortment of sock patterns. What makes it so wonderful is that the patterns are written in an array of different sizes.
Last, but certainly not least ...I'm making a 'Wonderful Wallaby' sweater for me in this gorgeous shade blues! The yarn is Cascade 220 'Paints'. I thought it was about time I knitted something for ME!
Hopefully I'll be back a lot sooner than I have been! I tell you it's just really CRAZY-BUSY around here! What more can I say?
