It's been a while

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted. Here are some newly finished items: Cabled wristlets for April to match her Spring Scarf, Water bottle cozy for Nancy, Kid's hats for Matt at work, and a hat for me.

Check out this great blog and her presidential contest here

I would say that my favorite costume was one I made for my daughter. She was a black cat (I know, not real creative, but hey, that's what she wanted) I dressed her head to toe in black and I added some felt ears in a headband, a felt tail and painted on some whiskers and a black nose. She was adorable!

And here is another Halloween contest. Check it out!

And yet another Halloween contest. She wants spooky stories.

Scarf for April

As a thank you to my freind April for giving me rides from work, I have made her this scarf. It's called Spring Scarf and you can get the free crochet pattern here Next I'm making her some cabled wristlets from the new Creative Knitting magazine in the same yarn. I have one done and it's looking real pretty.

yarnie goodness

I finally got the yarn for Mystery Stole 4. It is Skacel Merino Lace in Pale Pink and I'm using purple beads. I got to about Row 15 of Clue 1. I was doing both ends at the same time, but made an error on one end that I tried to fix, and just made it worse. So I frogged it and decided it was easier to just do one end at a time. I'll post a photo as I get the Clues done. I'm way behind.......

I got a huge suprise today when I went to get the mail - (yes, I have to get a PO BOX here in Alaska because there is no home delivery. It's not cheap either.) Anyway there was a box from SoHo Publishing. I was not sure what it was since I didn't order anything - and suprise! It was the cover kit from Knit Simple Magazine Fall 08 issue that I entered by post card. It is 22 skeins of Be Sweet Brushed baby Mohair in the color Tomato. Now to decide whether to make that sweater or find another. Any suggestions?
