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. ūüėĬ† 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.¬†ūüôā 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!
