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?
