Finishing Up

I have had the itch to Cast On something all day.......So instead I took a few pictures of some little things I finished up last night.

This is Bubbles....he is a little dishcloth from a pattern found here on the net

Only thing I did different was to add a button for the eye. My DIL came up with this idea....said when she was washing dishes the button saved her nails when 'scratching off that little stubborn spot'........and Bubbles did need an eye.

Next I finished up a washable Swifter Pad ....designed by a knitting friend Birdy of "Birdy Knits"

Birdy has designed some beautiful scarves and other lacey things......well worth the time of checking out her site.

And finally here is my newest Knitting Buddy.....Alan Dart's version of Shaun the Sheep. He currently resides on the little vase that holds my 'needed' knitting accessories.... isn't he cute?Shaun just makes me smile......

Test Knitting

Are you one that loves a good mystery? I do and I believe that is why I enjoy the Mystery KALs that are found on the internet. This is probably why I also like doing test knittng. I find it a challange when I get a pattern in a rough form and get to knit it into something to enjoy.

I just finished knitting up mittens for someone that happened to meet here on the WWW ......was the first time I have knitted from a chart into a 3 dimensional objet.....I think I turned out pretty well.

I really have been busy...

I have been knitting......well.....a little.... Have finished and getting ready to mail out this Ribbed Lace Bolero that I found here....

......gotta love knitters that share..... I knitted this one with Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece and it was a joy to work up.

I have also been sewing.....or test sewing .....I am attempting to make "a small project bag".....something a little different than just a drawstring type bag.....

New Month...New Stuff

I have started drawing off patterns for knitting bags....Have several fabrics matched up now to find the zippers and little things that help to make the bags special.

Also have been working on stitch markers. These really are fun to working with the beautiful beads. Just fun things to "dress up" your knitting while working on a project.
