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?
