SAFF 2016

You have to love a man that will indulge your hobbies and take you to the SAFF for like the millionth time! Look how the ray of sun shines upon his holy head! Ha Ha! This year at the fair, it was all about felting, weaving and wool balls, thekind you throw in the dryer to help with static.. I notice a hugeamount of bags for sale. Bagssewn in fabric for knitting while you're outdoors. I now must make one for myself. I also saw a great idea, of sewing bags to take to the market, which were made from recycle pet food bags. I just love the idea, and to think my dog's food  come in the coolest  brown and pink bags! Another idea I will have to hack. The weaving floor loom on the picture down below was made in 1850, and  It was used for 6 generations. A beauty and still being used today. One of my favorite things at the fair, was the fleece auction, and the Woolery's booth. I didn't buy a single skein of yarn. Surprisingly, that's a first for me. However, I didn't co…

Day Of The Dead

I found this cool pattern in the Love of Knitting Fall 2016 Magazine. Tittle "Day of the Dead", it's a Cowl by Tanis Gray. It's really easy and fun to knit. I've completed knitting it just in time too, it's starting to get a little nippy in the mornings, even so,  they still run the AC in my office. This will come in handy when I get a little cold during the work day. This was a enjoyable pattern, and one that I will probably do again. Happy Halloween!

This was so much fun to crochet. Which I have not done in a long while. This Christmas I plan to gift this to a special lady, my boyfriend's mother. She loves green and I so hope she loves this shawl. The yarn I used to crochet this shawl is from Cascade Yarns, I don't remember the color's name. I had so much fun making it that I must crochet one for myself. I have this beautiful variegated yarn from Germany that will look gorgeous in this pattern. I know it's only June, but I really want to send  homemade gifts to all my friends and family that have requested something from me. I never have time. So this year I have made plans to be more organized with projects both at home and at work. I read somewhere that having too many unfinished projects is a sign of bi-polar, so I guess I'm a mess.

I just finished blocking Hetty  by Andi Satterlund. I am currently obsessed with her designs. I used a lovely white yarn from Debbie Bliss. Cotton and silk blend. I wanted to use pearl buttons, instead I used some shell buttons that I all ready had in my statch . Here's Hetty blocked and ready to wear, Front and back view.

What's on your needles?

It's been a while since I've posted anything. So much has happen in the last year. All for the better. I've moved to a bigger house. Mother lives with me now.  I now have a studio, where I started to organize my yarns and other hobbies paraphernalia's in one room. I've completed tons of projects, as well as getting back to sewing. In the knitting department, I am currently working on this: Hetty from Andi Satterlund, I am using a white cotton, silk blend yarn from Debbie Bliss, called Cathay. I am in love with Audi's designs! She has an eye for getting the shaping of the pattern that really compliments the curves. I've made another of her patterns called. Miette, Which you can download for free,  in a cotton blend yarn for the summer in a mint green color also Debbie Bliss. The picture is not the best, but It's really a cute,crop, cardigan which I have plans to wear with this really cute green summer dress. Hope everyone had…
