Aren't these lovely??? I saw these in a recent copy of Interweave Knits and absolutely HAD to try them out. They turned out really well and they are a gift for my 'secret sister', a woman I've never met, to whom I send monthly gifts...The gifts are supposed to be scrap-related but since I don't have my stuff, I thought I'd make these instead. I hope she likes them. I think they are great and I already plotted out the chart for a skull & crossbones set. Those ones are gonna rock!!
And remember the gorgeous yarn I bought when I was in Skagway Alaska?? Well, I literally abandoned my other knitting project and whipped together the scarf it was meant to be made into in about 2 days. I love it but I wish it was double the length. This is how it turned out...
And in other news...renovations have started in what was previously known as the snowmachine shed. I finally was able to go in and empty out the 'studio' of its contents...I'll limit the gruesome details to this one thing - mummified bunny rabbit...blech!-other than that there was beat up furniture and old worn out electronics but now the real progress has begun. Ray's pal Eddie came by to help out with farm-related stuff but was soon put to work with strapping, insulation, drywall and windows. I can't get over how much was accomplished. And I was only planning to empty out the room and sweep the floor!
I'm going to put new batteries in my camera and try to get some photos of the progress posted in the next few days so you can share in my joy. I can't wait to get it done and move my scrap stuff in.
Enjoy your Wednesday.
