Canned Ham Trailer Ornament!

Look what I made today!!!!

I'd been thinking hard about it for a couple of weeks and this morning the whole thing came together - so I rushed to the fabric store to get supplies, sat myself down and started working.

What could be better than a Canned Ham Trailer Ornament? Seriously!

Some Knitting and Crochet

New socks cast on last night - first socks in a couple of months!

Scarf - probably a Christmas present (if I can get over the fact that it didn't felt like it was supposed to)

Crocheted scarf - don't have enough of the blue so it will be finished with white and thereby "two-toned" (I will call it a feature - not an error)

One of the mittens I designed as a gift.

lacy, cob-webby scarf tah dah!

Finally! At long last - I persevered to the end and finished my first lace project. I am sooooo pleased with the result and have been wearing it constantly.

A little catch-up

Okay, actually a verrrrry little catch-up. This is all I feel like. These were some really coolio chairs outside a shop in Florence, Or. We were there this past weekend in the trailer. Fun!

Summer Progress

Absolutely could not resist! So, I made a pair for me.

Undecided as to whether I will add the flower. I think I will wear them around a bit and make a decision later.

I finished the July-and-a-half socks on July 31. They are very nice socks and will really add some color to my winter.

Oooo La La

Saturday is my friend's birthday.
I found a pattern on Ravelry for some felted slippers.
I've never felted before - it seemed good.

It was good.

It got better.
I added crocheted roses from Nicky Epstein's Crocheted Flowers

I don't think Duffers is a good name for this slipper pattern. They are much more elegant than that name would imply.

FYI: I frogged the celtic knot purse/scarf that was on my to finish list. I decided I didn't really want a bag, and I also didn't want to knit a lot more and turn it into a scarf - the yarn was too scratchy. That yarn has now been turned into these lovely felted slippers!

P.S. the table cloth in the background is one I bought at the Good Will Bins on Crap by the Pound day. It's beautiful and in near perfect condition!

I've had a busy few days

Yah. I know. The picture is blurry - but so is my vision after all the blueberry picking I've done over the past several days - and this isn't even a bumper crop year!

The sock is an amazingly quick knit. I just haven't had as much time to knit as I would like (is there ever as much time to knit as I would like?). It has progressed further than in this photo, nearly to the cuff.

The quilt for The Sweet Spot is coming along nicely. I am quilting around the perimeter, then I just need to bind it.

This, however, has been the real push this weekend. I got the cushions sewn for The Sweet Spot! And, behold! They turned out just as envisioned - not something that always happens. Many of my projects morph in process and usually turn out well - just not as planned. These cushions, however, look just like I wanted them to and thought they would.
