New and Blue
This is my first shawl pin that I made using a wire jig and glass beads. I am having a lot of fun bending and playing. I took down my set up this afternoon so I do not have pictures of my work station or tools but I am having blast!
Marty picked out the color of the beads for this one. I think it kinda looks like a heart with a circle attached to it.
This morning I woke up and decided to check on what I blocked last night. These two socks cracked me up. I made the green, blue and purple socks in 2011 out of fixation. They are really comfortable. The sock next to it is Marty's. It is hilarious how much of a size difference there is!
Making Old New
Our apartment does not have a good spot to enter so you don't track in mud/salt from winter. We have been using a towel as a matt and it honestly drives me up the friggin wall! I decided I would finally make a plastic rug out of old bags we have collecting around the place. Here is the project so far.
Last but not least I played with a stitch dictionary (Treasury of Knitting Patterns by Barbara Walker) a long time ago back when I still worked at mosaic. This is long enough and wide enough to be a stole and is cuddly. Made out of Malabraigo Worsted.
Knitting On My Mind
My mom asked me to make her a ruffle scarf. I figured it would be a quick easy project. I was right but it is not me at all. Ruffles and Melissa do not go together. I cannot wait to finish it and send it off.
I am getting somewhere with my socks. I am trying to decide if I want to undo them because I found a mistake or if I don't care since it goes on my feet. Also do I want the top of the foot lacy like the top?
I really want to do some color work but for some reason when I am about start I feel like I need to work on my in-law's blanket so I don't. Must finish the blanket!
