I’ve been busy with a lot of yarny things lately and haven’t had a chance to share them with you yet! Before I do that though, I must share this stunning tree with you.
The color of this tree caught my eye every time I went by. Anywho, on to the yarn!
I’ve had my arm warmers done for some period of time now and just haven’t posted about them. They’ve already been used many many times on the cold, dark mornings when I don’t want to wear a coat. They keep me warm until the sun comes up and then I stuff them in my purse until the next morning! Perfect!
I also had a chance to work up that super woolly Malabrigo Rasta I bought at the Wool Gathering.
Have you ever made a mobius anything before? Super weird! I suggest giving it a try at the very least. If I managed, anyone can do it. Youtube tutorials are a wonderful tool 😉 This cowl is very thick and snuggly; I look forward to wearing it this winter!
Something new also happened to me this past week. I had my first booth in a craft fair! I had a lot of fun talking to the other people there, seeing the other booths, and selling my wares. Nothing big, but still a nice experience.
My delightful mother and sister came to keep my company throughout the day and to help with my table whenever I stepped away. Sara (my sis) helped me with something special while she was there.
This multi-colored yarn was part of a wonderful package I received from Lucy at In the Sky. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to make with it, but I’ll figure out something. Along with the homespun came some adorable little wooden buttons and some very nice embroidery scissors! Thanks so much Lucy!
Now that the craft show is over and I can take a break from making up stuff to sell, I can go back to making fun little things for myself again. I’m still trying to de-stash a bit though…There are several balls of leftover wool sitting on a shelf in my living room that need worked through. I am excited to say I’m finally making something from my birthday book! The Little Book of Knitted Monsters is finally in my yarn bag 🙂
I have started the body and I’m curious to see how my first monster turns out! I need to find some little eyes for he/she when my project is complete.
Ok, now that I’ve got all of my projects out there I can relax! I’ve been wanting to share them with you for a while. It’s getting harder to get good pictures due to the lighting in my dark little house. It’s that time of year when the sunlight is disappearing faster and faster as winter draws near! You can see how the change is affecting my poor Mina cat.
She is a very sleepy Mew once the sun starts to set. I do love having her around when I get home in the evenings. Bryon is normally in bed when I get home since he works night shift. She keeps me company 🙂
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! See you all next time.
