Summer projects

Well it has been a long time since I posted anything.  I was very busy with our County Fair this year and being a 4-H leader didn’t make it any easier. 😀  Breezy did quite well.  Two of her items for fiber arts won champion ribbons and went to our State Fair and received blue ribbons there.  She did a display board on Loom Knitting which earned her a champion ribbon locally. She loom knit a hat with her handspun yarn and received a champion ribbon as well.  I’ll try and post pictures of them as soon as I get them taken.

She did another display board on rabbit diseases and used electricity (which they learned how to do in class last year) to let a person know if they had gotten their answer right.  It turned out really well and a picture of it actually made it into our local paper.  Boy was she surprised.  Well enough about my daughter.

I did manage to make a few of the pinwheel dishcloths that Isela has in the Fall 2008 issue of Loom Knitters Circle.  They are so much fun to make and my husband actually likes these.  I also tried Denise’s Mitered Dishcloth and that was also a lot of fun to make.  As I was making ths cloth, I thought it would be fun to make a scarf or a sweater using the mitered squares.  Oh the creative juices are flowing again.  Sorry about the poor pictures…they were taken from my phone as my camera broke. 

Speaking of creative juices, I have been working on designs for the 2009 Loom Knit Calendar bewteen canning salsa and beans.  To give you a little hint as to what will be in the calendar, expect to see a little bit of lace, cables and knit and purl combos.  I am hoping to have it ready for download the end of this month.  I’ll keep you posted.  I also have some other designs knit up, just need to write and chart the instructions.  Designs include seahorses, hummingbird, owl, desert scene and I forget what else. 🙂 I’ll post when I get them done.

I have also been busy trying to earn points to buy stuff on Amazon.  All it does is take a little bit of time and it’s fun.  I plan on buying some stuff for Christmas this way.  You can even buy yarn this way and not have to spend a cent.  Check it out and signup if interested!  Points2Shop 

Have a great rest of the week and weekend everyone!
