Christmas knitting continues. I am so pleased how this Vintage worsted knit up in the Forest Park Cowl for my grown up niece who has not outgrown her love for purple.
We also welcomed our new minister! It was a year in the search, but she is a force and I look forward to having more direction with the Sunday School and Youth Group.
The 2 great nieces get kitty mittens. I just made two thumbs and attached ears.
Some stitching for my MIL. I bought this apron when we were in Vancouver and had ideas, but just had to jump in.
I cut out the dollies and traced them, but just drew the pictures from pinterest. I added french knots because people really like them. Her birthday party is this weekend and the fabric marker had totally faded. Good thing. The marks from the hoop are gone, too.
This is the Carbondale by Dandelion Designs. I was unsure of this Rain City Knits highlighter yellow after I bought it. We were in the city on a gloomy rainy day and it seemed just the thing for my daughter's boyfriend. By having the inside hem and just the fair isle in the bright, I think it is not too silly for a hip guitar composer. She gets to veto it when she is home for Thanksgiving, which we celebrate on Monday, October 12.
And for a super treat, I bought a Party of Five. This will be some kind of scarf/cowl.
All you need is love and cake. And great organic food and local wines.
Emily dyed me some "Mermaid Hair" BFL for my birthday. What a treat. This was a big part of my travel knitting.
My roses were battered in a wind storm, but still had enough blooms to share at my sink.
Now that I have access to my photos and can blog, I'll do a post on our trip.
