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!
