Crafting update..

Now, I can not remember exactly when I started this orange sweater thing, but I think it was two years ago. I started it, and it landed on my list of unfinished craft projects. (that list is almost a year old, and I have finished both of the knitting projects.. yeah!) I put it away the project when I ran out of yarn. Then a year later, I found more yarn. So, with a nice long trip to MN and a couple of music lessons, I was able to finish this! (It’s for Emily, our four year old). The pattern is my own design, but the stitch is a lace, cable twist, with a celtic braid cable along the sleeve.

Also, this “fabric art” was put together by a guest in our home. Do you recognize a remake on a famous painting?

There is no sewing in this. Just back pieces of fabric with Heat and Bond, cut and iron on. Pretty fun and easy, once you get the hang of it. I tried to make one also, but mine did not turn out that great..

I did manage to make ONE sock. We’ll call this “basement knitting”. The grey yarn is from a garage sale, and the others are “scraps”. Now the real question I keep asking myself is this: should I make the next sock look just like this one OR make it look sort of like it. My houseguest says, “Duh?!! Why would you consider wearing two different socks?” I’m not sure why, but I think I would enjoy wearing two different socks.

Now, my next project WILL involve this:

I saw it in the fabric store and HAD to have it. I think I will make something to WEAR. Can’t wait!
