March?!! What happened to January and February?
It has been a busy two months.
I have been busy working, visiting with the grandkids, knitting, baking, doing needlepoint, and reading.
To catch you up...
I finished these Beaded Lacey Cuffs February 23rd. They are as cute as I remember.
Mikado Knit Lace Cuff with Beads design by Cathy Campbell
Yarn: Katia Acuario (90% viscose, 10% plyamide), Green
Beads: Mill Hill size 6 color 16037 (80 beads)
Knitted madly trying to finish the Putting Holes in Happiness socks for the FGF (Fingerless Glove Fanatics) Sock Group on Ravelry. I had January and February to finish them. January I worked on the Blathnat socks and socks for a designer (finishing those socks the middle of February). I thought, 'yes!' I can do this... finish these purple socks in two weeks. HA!
The one for the shop was done using Online Linie 33 Cosmo (70% merino, 5% cashmere, 25% polymide) in purple on US2/2.75m dpns.
For mine I'm using Online Linie 33 Cosmo in blue on US2/2.75m dpns.
The pattern is from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders.
"Woven" Fingerless Gloves by Laura Hein Eckel.
The yarn is a dream to work with and gives great stitch definition.
It may surprise you that I found a few minutes to work on my needlepoint.
My goal this year is to stitch a few Christmas ornaments.
So I'm starting with Santa.
He may not look like much so far, but wait... he is a cute ornament. (and I already have the next 6 ornaments picked out!!!!)
I've also been
This loaf is a honey wheat and I think it baked a bit too long. darn! I'll just have to make it again, lol.
