I have had time to craft though....oh, and read. And do laundry....and take credit for fantastic brisket sandwiches.
I made this scarf with a skein of Blick Fang. What a name, right?
Anyway, it is super soft and lush and "springy." I know it looks a bit "camo" in the photo, but in person it doesn't. The red is dominant in the yarn, I just didn't feel good enough to try and take a decent photo. Basically, even when I TRY to take a good photo, I suck so I just don't worry about it any longer....
It is a gift for someone who looks terrific in red and happens to live somewhere cold. I think she will love it. I made it with a simple HDC stitch.
I also made this fun little pincushion with a find from the local thrift shop. You know those Limoges box knock offs? Yep, that was what this was. I just cut the top off with pliers and made the little pincushion to sit inside it. I added a little paper clay pin I'd made.
I love this little cutie...I'm not keeping it though, it is also a gift and should be in Texas by now...
I made this gorgeous infinity scarf using some Blitzen yarn that I picked up on sale early this year. It is big and soft and fluffy....and I keep thinking it would be perfect for Halloween with a black dress and a spider hanging off of it somewhere! That being said, I'm not 100% sure I'll be keeping it...hmmm.
here is a close up so you can see the color better...simply gorgeous!
I've wanted a shawl for ages but they all scream "old lady" to me.
This is the first one that I like. I'll use it for those occasions when a sweater is too much. This stitch is so easy, it works up very quickly.
I used a variegated ribbon yarn, Versa by Berroco. The colors go from a muted teal to a blue grey to a light green to a soft buttery yellow. All the colors I wear.
I just need a reason to wear it now........
