ummm is the laundry done?
So I like to make things. (as if that's news) Though this week and last, I've been a little slow on the projects. I have been reading (actual reading not listening to books on CD) I did, how ever, finish this scarf for a friend. Her birthday was Sat and we were going to her house on Sun. So this simple seed stitch scarf was the perfect gift to knit. I used Limari by Aruacania it's a Merino/Alpaca/Silk blend. Just Lovely! I actually finished knitting it on Saturday and had enough time to block the scarf. My friend was really excited to open the gift and said she needed a scarf. (and it's getting cold this week) so it was the Perfect gift!
Friday at sit and knit I was talking with a friend and she'd gotten the cutest Bull Terrier beads/trinkets (I'm not sure what) off of ebay. She was asking me about how I made stitch markers and where I got the stuff. For Christmas I made some knitting bling for the ladies I teach and a few other ladies. (I forgot to take photos) They went over really well! So while I was explaining what and where I got the stuff to make them I offered to throw together some stitch markers for her. So today, I finally had some time to sit down and put them together. They turned out really cute. I used only one bead with them just to add something "extra". So what do you think? I've been pondering making up a few sets of Knitting Bling and putting them on my etsy site. I'll have to get on that soon... LOL ... I keep saying that. (one day I'll just sit down and do it)
Until then I'll just share with ya'll what I've made here on my blog.
