In the process of unpacking of what I hope is the end of all the craft boxes I found these 3 little buddies. I purchased them at the Down Cellar in one of my last visits there. They are all so cute and remind me of my Tuesday knit group. I have so many great knitting friends and the Ladies of the Tuesday group – Toni, Mary, Lynn and Ann are exceptional good knitters. We would meet on two Tuesday’s a month and usually plot some extreme projects for one of us to knit (usually not me-LOL). They were fun nights with lots of dreams and plans for some future project . So these three are especially dear to me and I am glad they have come with me here. I need some good friends.
Here is the famous grey cable sweater that I knitted for my daughter Katie in the fall. She loves it and it even looks good on her college room-mate Ryan so I am sure they are sharing it. It was a labor of love but it was also a lot of fun to knit.
I always like to try and learn something new so I found this Entrelac scarf pattern and with the Noro yarn it is just so beautiful. Every one says it looked like the ocean with the colors so I figured what better place to take the picture than in the sand. It was not done when I took this picture but I have finished it and I love it! And last night it was chilly here in NJ so after knitting when we were having our parking lot executive committee meeting I needed it (since I did not wear a coat). It sure felt good!
These are my new knitting mascots. I needle felted them with Sara’s help (but I won’t needle felt again – it just was not for me). They really are cute and I named them Margo and Jose after our favorite margaritas!
I knitted this sweater about 5 years ago but never sewed the seams. I get this great little magazine called Guideposts and in there they have a program where they will collect hand knitted or crochet sweaters for children all over the world. I love the idea of helping some child so I thought I would knit my first sweater for charity. Well I did finish the knitting of it but never sewed it together. Well I found this little sweater last week and I have finally sewed the seams together. It really is cute and you can’t see it but it has flakes of other primary colors in the yarn. So now I will just block it and send it out. It is not perfect but I really think it will keep some one warm. If you want more info on this wonderful project go to www.knitforkids.org and they even have very simple sweater patterns there. I am glad I have finished this.
I have been wanting to collect sheep since the fall but I am having a hard time finding any out there. But then I came upon the Fiber Trends pattern and I was off and knitting! I made one big white one (pictured), one medium darker grey one that I gave a way and 2 little light grey ones. One is shown here with the big white one. I think this little pair will be my new baby gift for any new babies. I love them!
