I've been a busy gal lately and done a LOT of things. However, blogging isn't one of them!
Here is an update with lots of pics for your viewing pleasure. Most are projects that I started and finished in February. Click on name of each project to view the knitty gritty project details.
I started and finished a sweater for my hubby in February using Elizabeth Zimmerman's Seamless Saddle Shoulder Pullover pattern in her book Knitting Without Tears.
I call it "Beloved."
I have to say I am so happy with how it turned out.
This sweater was not without it's trials and tribulations.
There was some spinning in February. I spun alpaca...
...and some wool...
...and plied the two together.
There were smaller, less ambitious projects too. I crocheted a few water bottle covers to help my daughter with her AWANA missions project. She is making them to give to folks in exchange for donations which will all go to support children's programs in Nepal.
St. Patrick's Day is coming! I decided to make a crocheted Shamrock Garland.
This month, in anticipation of a little spring cleaning, I tried out two different patterns for Swiffer covers.
On the left is the Reversible Swiffer Sock and on the right is the Crochet Biffer Shrug.
Currently there are socks on one set of needles and and a cabled sweater in progress as well. However, I've spent the last two days doing a little sewing. I designed my own pattern for a reversible project bag.
This one is prize for a fellow participant in Ravelry's Nerd Wars. Her favorite colors are jewel-toned blue and green.
I made another one to donate as a door prize at Camp KIP in April.
I definitely see more of these bags in my future. I've really enjoyed sewing them!
Well, that pretty much sums up what I've been working on the last month or two. As you can see, my hands have been pretty busy! Now, if I could just be more consistent about writing my blog!
