Last time I was going over my WIP list (16 plus 2 sewing). Well this weekend I actually found time (with t-ball starting and Hubby taking Skywalker (Yep our son has discovered Star Wars) to the Met game) to finish some of them.
I sewed on the handles to that bag from a few posts ago (forgot to take picture, my bad). I also finished the Secret Project. I ran into a big problem, like ran out of yarn close to the finish, but found a solution that worked great. Of course I can't really show you what I mean since well it still needs to be secret a few more days. I also weaved in the dreaded ends on the pinwheel sweater and even added the clasp!
Buddah loves it!
(yes it is blurry, but I loved the shot)
The dreaded ends
of course this does not show how high the pile is =)
My Mommy came for a visit on saturday and I showed the woman who showed me how to knit over 25 years ago how to knit socks!
Oh how I wished she lived closer. We could knit together. Really I am very happy she is knitting again. She remembered to knit and purl, so really showing her how to knit socks is very easy. Next visit is heel flap and turning the heel!
(oh and not to brag or anything she is using yarn that I dyed = ) )
My Darling Stepson (really he is the best stepson a stepmom could ask for) and I played with one of those hemp friendship bracelet kits I had laying around. The book showed all these different patterns that I remember doing with lanyard in summer camp. Who else remembers making key chains and friendship bracelets for hours? I showed him the staircase. We had a lot of fun and I gave him the rest of the kit to keep.
sniff sniff he will be a teenager next year!
Lastly for this post, I dug out my sock blocker keychain and followed the directions on how to make a sock for it.
Yeah I knit tightly.
Next time: fiber, hand spun yarn and maybe secret project?
Oh and Bellatrix is frogged. I wished I could have taken a picture of Darling Stepson's face as he watched. Priceless.
