I have been working along on projects lately large and small, and have some finishes to share. First off are some amigurumi I have made from the book I bought.
I love tigers. I think they are some of the most beautiful, powerful and graceful creatures on the planet. So I couldn't pass up making these little ones. One is mine, and the other is for my son who ,bless his heart, is incredibly patient when it comes to getting some of mom's projects (little sister usually swoops in and tries to claim all of them).
"F" is also for...my feet...
"F" number three... false starts
I started my next project about a week ago. It is a knitted stole called Blue Topaz published in Simply Knitting issue 71. I got going and was all excited about a "simple" project...some easy-ish lace, no shaping. Then about 20-something rows into it I noticed an error in my knitting. Thinking I could just frog a couple rows I pulled the needles out and yanked away. Then realized I couldn't tell yarn overs from other stitches or dropped stitches. I got frustrated, frogged the WHOLE thing, cried for a minute then restarted. I will try to get a couple pictures to share next post.
"F" number four... fun stuff!!
The weekend before Thanksgiving the local garden center has an event called Holly-Pine Lane which is free to the public. There are lots of themed decorated Christmas trees there as well as demonstrations, refreshments and Santa. Since that Sunday the kiddos were here we decided to check it out.
This is the tree that was at the entrance. It was covered in beautiful ornaments like this cut paper ornament, below, as well as others.
One of my favorites. One decorated with beautiful red work ornaments done by the local quilter's society.
Finally, one that was a favorite of all of us kids and kids at heart... one covered in candy and candy shaped ornaments :cD
Well, I am off to enjoy one more "F".... free time! I have a little today between the chores and picking the kids up from school, so I am off to try to get a walk and some crafting time in today. Hope you all have a wonderful day!! Warmest wishes!!
