Well the weekend is coming to a close and I must admit it’s been a productive one! Not only did I have a fantastic time yesterday, but I got a lot of hooky time in too! Are you ready? Here it is! Taa Daa!
Thanks to my mom for posing for me 🙂 Isn’t she lovely? She bought a cute wooden shawl pin when she was at the yarn shop last weekend with my grandmother (the same one where they bought my dog-sitting payment). You can check my Ravelry page for details. I’m so glad it’s done! Really simple and fun to work through, just a smidgen monotonous after a while.
Now to start something new! I now have a hat started to go into my pile of hats and scarves for sale. There are a few various craft shows here in town, and one of them takes place in the conference rooms of the hospital. Last year was my first time visiting and I had a great time looking around and seeing all of the neat and beautiful things that people created. I decided I’d like to become a part of it if possible so I am building up a collection of knit (loom knit) and crochet scarves and hats to put up for sale! I don’t have enough to put up a legitimate booth for this year’s upcoming craft show, but next year I will!
My collection needed some blue. Seeing as it’s one of my favorite colors I’m surprised it hasn’t made its way in yet! I also started a project for myself today. A while ago I bought some Malabrigo Worsted yarn from Sheri at The Loopy Ewe and decided it was time to work it up!
I LOVE this yarn! It’s so unique (at least to me) in the way it is spun and the colors are so rich. When i was searching for which colorway to buy, I could barely make up my mind! I settled for Whale’s Road. I will certainly be buying other colors in the future! If you haven’t used Malabrigo before, I highly recommend it! Apparently Mina likes it too….
Little snot still doesn’t understand “No.” Alas. At least I caught her before she ran off with it or chewed through it this time. I think Miss Mew is on a learning curve. I have to love her though. Well, that’s about it for my latest adventures. Oh, I guess I did fiddle around with my needles again today and learned how to increase and read patterns a little better. One step closer to actually making something fun! See you all next weekend!
