Sewing has been fun. I'm making these List takers now and they are going to make nice gifts this year for teachers and such. Watch for some on my etsy in the next month or so. The pattern came from JChandmade. I really enjoy reading Jennifer's blog and seeing what she creates with that sewing machine of hers!!
She also had a free tutorial about how to make fabric magnets. These are quick and fun!
Remember this sweater I posted a month or so ago that I started. Well I was going along loving the knit until my husband uttered the simple words "Raw Hamburger Meat". I couldn't go on knitting knowing that I'd look like walking meat. I ripped out the arm. Gave the yarn to my good friend Heather of Sereknity and she dyed it for me.
Below is the picture of the yarn now. It's a beautiful Eggplant color and I'm much happier with the yarn. Thank you Heather!! You saved the yarn for me. It looks more purpley in person. Trust me...it's SOOOOO much better!
I am knitting some socks from Heather's yarn. This is Vintage "Vintage". She dyed this yarn last year and has since changed her Vintage colorway a tad, so I have the vintage Vintage color. These socks are going to be so nice and warm! The Eggplant color in the socks will match my sweater perfectly!
And finally, a reveal package from my Secret Pal 12. My SP12 was Courtney. This gal spoiled me really well!! The yarn is so yummy, the ducks are too cute (stitch markers) and she also sent some homemade pear preserves! Courtney was great with emails and reading up on my blog and Ravelry queue to see what kind of things I liked. Very sneaky. Thank you Courtney for all of the treats you sent my way during this round of SP12. It was a great round.
