Monkey Business

Another sock monkey! For a Friends Birthday.

Felt Applique hearts.

I also crochet a lip gloss holder.

More Kool-aid Dyed Wool

I dyed with kool-aid flavors, Black Cherry, Grape and Lime. It reminds me of Lilacs. I am going to try 3d felting with this yarn. I have started Knitting a narrow scarf. I am thinking of adding a crochet edging. No real plan just improvising as I go along.

Just for fun I knit one of these cute little Korknisse.

I got the Flu for Christmas! No fun at all.

I did not get all of my Christmas Gifts finished. I will finish them and Mail them out as soon as possible.

What did I get for Christmas? (besides the flu) I got Money which I have been spending on Knitting needles, patterns, and yarn.

It's a Boy!

I went to Target, to get a Boy doll. They must have had about 100 of them on the top shelf. There was not a single boy in the bunch. So I got a bald girl baby and did a makeover. (Last month Target had two boys. If only I had know I needed it then.)

I went to the Cabbage Patch web page and renamed him, Norville Roger.

Busy Week

Felted wool sweater into a purse.
made entirely of recycled and thrifted Items. (Sweater, pillowcase, button and handles)

Stitch Markers set 1.

set 2

set 3

Another Knit Dice bag, using the Kool-aid dyed yarn.

I Tried the Yarn Harlot's Unoriginal Hat Twice and frogged both.
One was too big and the other too small. It is all due to needle size. There is nowhere close to my home to get a set of 7mm needles. I will keep trying.

Busy Weekend Knitting and Sewing

Myra and I experimented with Koolaid on this One ounce skein of wool. It had some cuts in the skein, so we just used the larger length to dye.
We used Grape, Strawberry and Cherry flavors.

I Knit up this Banana Republic Knockoff hat using
Red Heart Grande in Cranberry.

I Next made a Dice Bag, with a seed stitch base.

I also Started yet another Hat. The Yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease. (needles are US7)

I did a little sewing to help organize my growing collection of Knitting tools.
