Barbie is in the witch costume and her best friend Unique is in the bee costume. We had a wonderful Halloween, Barbie raking in the candy. Most of which she will give away as she always ends up doing and I love that fact. We had a trunk or treat in our community held by our church and they served us hot cocoa, then we hit a few houses here. It was very enjoyable And here is a picture of her pumpkin she carved too!
The green socks are about done and they are done in wool ease by lion brand. Barbie needed some sleeping socks to keep her feet warm at night This pair of socks were knit for my friend Nikki for just being her. She is the sweetest person and works very hard every day for her family. She has been beyond kind to me. Thanks Nikki I started out with some recycled light green worsted lambs wool yarn dyed it purple and then unplyed it to get a skinnier yarn. It was a labor of love. In case this wording (as I cant predict how blogger does this) is for the purple socks that by the way are on Nikki's feet in the picture.
Here is the newest sweater I have made for my darling newest grandaughter Harmoney. I took apart a Goodwill sweater and unraveled the yarn then dyed it pinks. Then I knitted up this little sweater. I have it all packaged up and ready to go out in tommarrow's mail so I hope she loves it and it fits. If you would like to make this sweater here is the link (you may have to cut and paste) http://www.lindaslists.net/babysweater.htm OH and there is a little hat there too! Had to add that this is a zip up the back sweater! I had one when my Daniel was small and I loved it!!!
I totally enjoyed making this hat. I still have problems with the short rows and counting so you can see a few imperfections. I am sure my little Evan (my handsome little grandson) will not mind or even notice for that matter. I am hopeful that it fits his head and will have more pictures to post later hopefully with him wearing it. The front view is the correct color not sure why the top view turned out different. Thanks for allowing me to share and your comments. here is the link to the pattern I used thank you Kathryn Ivy!!! http://kathrynivy.com/patterns/premium/kiddie-cadet/
I am tickled pink! Daniel (my oldest son) and Amanda his girlfriend, Went to a fair in Seattle somewhere. They found some sheep sheering and thought of me! So they called me and asked if I would spin up some yarn for Amanda and Cecilia and knit them matching scarfs. I am so thrilled that they thought of me. They sent the package off the darker wool is for there scarfs. The lighter stuff is for me and what I think I want to do is dye it blue or maybe half of it blue and leave half white and then ply them together and make me gloves for winter. And the best part I got pictures of my grandbabies!!! They also sent me a nice card and a starbucks gift card. I am so so pleased. Thanks Kids you made my wk!!!
So I made one! The wallet I had was way to big for my purse and made it hard to find anything in it. So I looked and looked online for a wallet for just credit cards or that type. As I have a bunch of cards about that size. Not exactly credit cards but like store cards, gift cards (Thanks Dan and Amanda for the Starbucks card!) And then I made this. I just made it up as I went making sure I had room for all my cards and such. Let me know what you think!!
I know a lady online (Desiree) who makes Super Cool, Unique Quilted Handbags, here is the link to her store http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5760490 She made the above bag. I wanted a bag so badly and couldn't afford one and she had made one for my daughter for a gift (she is a sweetie) So anyway I thought maybe she would like to trade for one of my spindles! And she did!!! Here are the pictures of what we traded!!! OK OK I borrowed the pictures from her blog!
This little hat has a story: I was making the pumpkin hat (see post a couple below this) for my grand daughter. I wanted to try it on a child about her age to see if it fit. Light bulb moment, The little girl next door "Marisa who is 2" she would make a perfect tester. Well the hat fit her so it was all good. Then she looked up at me and said thank you. OPPS Now I had another hat to make. I carefully told her I had made that hat for my Grand daughter but would she like one like it or something else? She said Hello Kitty. So here is her hat and her beautiful little face!!! I need to add that I found this pattern online at this blog: http://beadwhore.blogspot.com/2007/10/hello-kitty-hat.html Beadwhore Knitting is the name of the blog. She is quite interesting!
