Project updates and such…

Well I figured I better at least get some projects posted before I totally forget about them.  I finished up the Felted Baguette by Isela Phelps.  It was a fun and easy pattern to follow.  I had to improvise a little as I didn’t buy enough Noro yarn on vacation, so I found some that seemed suitable in my stash.    This is how it turned out.  I use it as my knitting bag which works out great!  I am also working on Isela’s Rowan Handbag.  I love the tapering of this bag.  I have the bag itself done.  I just needs to be sewn up and  the strap to finish, but I have other projects that have taken the priority.  I had a shrug I made for my Voci performance on Monday and Tuesday.  This was needle knit and it turned out okay…the sleeves were a little long.  Oh well.  Speaking of Tuesday, Scott and I celebrated our 13th Wedding Anniversary.  He bought me a dozen long-stemmed red roses.  I guess he really does love me. 

I am also working on a design for a purse for Markman Farms Spring Pattern contest.  I am inviting you all to stop by her website and vote for your favorite pattern.  She should have the poll up this weekend.  I have two patterns up (or will)  one for Simple Fingerless Mitts and the other for my Midnight Sky Purse (picture coming soon).  The fingerless mitts I taught on Lynn’s Beginning Loom Knitting Class this week.  I am either a good teacher (hahaha) or not many are doing the class.  It has been so quiet.  Not many questions.  It has been fun and I hope to teach some more classes again.  I will be teaching an afghan square for Loom Class in June which will entail lace knitting.

For those of you who like to design, I am taking submissions for the 2009 Loom Knit Dishcloth Calendar until August 31st.  Check out the submission guidelines and submit them as soon as possible.

Well I think I have finally ran out of things to say.  I am going to enjoy our very warm, summer like weather ,this weekend and work on my tan, in addition to showing my rabbits.  I am hoping to get another leg on my  polish bunny Zorro.  He managed to pick up one last weekend for Best of Opposite Sex Breed under judge Kevin Rudolph.  Just 2 more to go and I can grand him.  Go Zorro!  Here are the three babies we had 3 1/2 weeks ago, which I will leave you with.  Their father is Marshmellow and Breezy calls them Mini Marshmellows. Aren’t they the cutest?

  1. I tried commenting on your Friday Fill In but I kept getting an error so I’ll comment on this post instead (hee,hee)! You decided to make your shrug with needles huh? I started my shrug but put it down because I decided to help make squares for an afghan for Ravenstardreams (Vivian). I will probably get it done next month instead. Good luck to your rabbit in the show!

  2. LOVE your page Stephanie! The purse you did is so beautiful. Isela comes up with some wonderful patterns. I have a pattern to send you for the calendar. Don’t let me forget…. sometimes the oldtimers kicks in! LOL
