I am hoping that I see Shereen has made it to her new home!! She hasn’t been online so there is no Sew Crafty post on her blog yet 😦 I’m going to post anyway and hope I hear from her soon!! I miss her!!!
This week I finished up the 2nd leg of the striped longies I’ll be selling. Just have to graft the gusset and make the i-cord…
And I started my middle son’s mitten. He wanted them to be his favorite color ORANGE and he also wanted some stripes of brown. Well, turns out that what I THOUGHT was brown is actually a brownish purple (as I saw in the natural light outside this AM!!!) but I still think he will like them! And they are turning out larger than the other mittens because I am using Peace Fleece and it knits at a larger gauge. Although they seem big, it will allow for felting after he plays in the snow a lot this winter!
And my friend, Summer, is having a surprise baby shower in 2 weeks (she doesn’t use the internet, so I can divulge this info!! hehe) and I am knitting her up a few things. First is a pair of longies using soft acrylic since she probably won’t use them as a diaper cover.
I got a few other skeins to use my favorite dishcloth pattern to make her some baby washcloths 🙂 The yarn was on sale at Walmart for $1.50 a skein!!! So buying 4 skeins only cost me $6 and she is going to get lots of stuff from it!!!
And this has nothing to do with craftiness… but here are 4 of the kids this AM saying goodbye to our 3 cats (Mama and her 2 kittens) since they are all getting fixed today 🙂
We’ve been joking that it’s Coco’s first sleepover… unfortunately it’s not a fun one 😦 But the boys will be home tonite at 5 🙂
Since we have schooled hard this week and have gotten some schoolwork done this AM, we are heading to Summer’s so the kids can play with her 6 kids! We are planning on them playing outside if it gets a bit nicer out or they’ll be doing inside things including some puzzles, drawing, etc! Should be a fun day!!
Hope you all had a great week!! Love, Bridget
