I've taken a hiatus from a lot of blogging lately, and I am honestly not sure if I'll ever really do this a lot. I just have a lot of stuff going on! And blogger has been so weird lately... I try constantly to post comments on my friends' blogs, and it never lets me. Maybe it's my browser.
Anyway, I figured I'd do a quite montage of my crafting highlights over the last five or six months. Above and below are shawl pins I made in June, I believe.
19 knitted strawberries for my son's play food stash, made in July from a free pattern on Ravelry. To get to it, you can see my project page on Ravelry. (I'm KathyCanuel on there, and everywhere else, I suppose, but usually with a space between my names. ^_~)
In August, I improvised a cute crochet chef hat for Elliott. He's a bit obsessed with play food and cooking and kitchen stuff.
My first knitted shawl, also completed in August:
I got an order for a trinity link ring, which was a new challenge for me. But I love the way this turned out, in September.
In September, I got a new bible from my husband, and I added bling to it by gluing crystals on the cover and by adding this cluster charm on the ribbon.
Also in September, I made my first real knitted garment (I've previously done a very bulky cardigan for my son and a little baby sweater, but I don't count those) for my sweet older son. He gets cold in his classroom at school and they have a uniform policy that states that if they're wearing a cover up inside, it must be navy blue and it must NOT have a logo, and it can't be made of sweat material. You would never realize just how hard it is to find a plain navy blue cardigan. So I made one.
In October, I made two more signs for Tempe Yarn and Fiber, to mark sections of yarn in the store. I had a lot of fun with both of these!
I also made a lot of really, really cool pieces for my trunk show. These earrings are my super fave. I don't think I have to point out which pair I'm talking about. ^_~
In October, I also managed to knit two entire sweaters for my sweet husband for his November birthday, shown here. He was so excited to get them, which makes it really easy to knit stuff for him.
So far this month, I've finished my second lacy shawl, also made from a free pattern on Ravelry, called Echo Flower.
And I have another trunk show coming up in the beginning of December! I'm keeping busy. So busy, in fact, that I apparently have no time to post about it. ^_~
